Eagles | Jordan Matthews hits century mark

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 21:15:35 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews hauled in nine catches for 104 yards in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the New England Patriots. He converted all nine of his targets.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is expected to be the team's top slot receiver, and he certainly looked better than a rookie in this one. Target Matthews as a WR3/4 or flex fantasy option with some upside on draft day. In dynasty formats, he is a must-have.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews works with top unit

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 17:56:36 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews mixed in with the first-team in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is expected to be the top slot wideout this season, and he will be a solid WR3/4 or flex play in most fantasy formats, perhaps more so if Jeremy Maclin (knee) and Riley Cooper (foot) cannot stay healthy.

Eagles | Jeremy Maclin unlikely to play

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 07:43:42 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 14, and is unlikely to play in the second preseason game Friday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Maclin's injury isn't considered serious. His absence should give Jordan Matthews another chance to impress the team after a disappointing showing in the first game. Maclin is a solid WR3. Matthews is a WR5 with upside if he wins the slot role.

Eagles | Coaches disappointed in Jordan Matthews

Sun, 10 Aug 2014 23:25:14 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews caught only four passes for 14 yards in the team's first preseason game, prompting coach Chip Kelly to express disappointment. "I thought he was just inconsistent," Kelly said. "I don't know if he was pressing or whatever. But there were some inconsistencies there. Some guys, it's the first time in the bright lights. [They] get the chance to get that out of the system, get a deep breath."

Eagles | LeSean McCoy praises Jordan Matthews

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 15:51:40 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles rookie WR Jordan Matthews has received praise from RB LeSean McCoy during training camp. Six wideouts in this year's draft were selected ahead of Matthews. "That rookie we got, Matthews, is looking real good. There's been a lot of talk about this draft class being deep at wide receivers, but I'm real confident in this one being the best of the class," McCoy said. "It's still early, you got to go through the season and see how he does, but he looks amazing." Matthews worked with the first-team offense Tuesday, Aug. 5, and hauled in a few catches.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is receiving some valuable repetitions with the first-team this week with Jeremy Maclin (legs) and Riley Cooper (foot) beat up. Matthews is surely worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, and he'll likely be a good value pick in daily games early in the season.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews at No. 4

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 06:27:25 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews is listed as the fourth receiver, with WR Brad Smith as the slot receiver, on the first depth chart released by the team.

Fantasy Tip: There aren't many people that expect Smith to hold off Matthews. Matthews is a good late-round flier as a WR5.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews receives praise

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 12:12:05 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles rookie WR Jordan Matthews was recently praised by wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell, who said Matthews has looked very good, is physical and has a good feel for what he wants to do.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has built a lot of hype this offseason. He still figures to be the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin. Head coach Chip Kelly said he expects Matthews to be their primary slot receiver. It's best not to get ahead of ourselves with Matthews at this point. Consider him a WR4 with WR3 upside in standard leagues.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews more comfortable

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 10:52:41 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles rookie WR Jordan Matthews recently said he's getting more comfortable with his duties and his transition to the NFL. He also admitted he needs to continue to get better.

Fantasy Tip: It has been rumored that Matthews will assume the slot position with Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin playing outside. Matthews is one of the more intriguing rookies for fantasy this year. He should be drafted as a WR4/WR5 with WR3 upside.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews the favorite for the slot

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 19:23:51 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews seems to be the early favorite for the slot wide receiver position with the team this year. He is competing with WR Josh Huff. "Matthews is a big, physical, athletic guy that is going to I think do really well. I love his attitude. He's been a great teammate," QB Nick Foles said.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has a chance to thrive in Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense, and he'll definitely fly under the radar in drafts this year. Riley Cooper has only proven he can produce in one season and Jeremy Maclin is coming off a serious knee injury. There is room for him to move up in the pecking order if the top two options are failing.
