Fantasy Tip: Jackson should receive interest from multiple teams if he becomes available this offseason. He likely would be one of the starting receivers if he joins the Eagles since he would be familiar with the offense. Jackson probably will be a No. 3 receiver no matter where he plays next season.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews was only able to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Dec. 1, and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. TE Zach Ertz and WR Dorial Green-Beckham are likely to see the biggest increases in fantasy value due to Matthews' absence.

Fantasy Tip: With word coming out that Jordan Matthews is a no go in Cincy this seems like a no brainer despite Agholor's struggles. Perhaps the week off will help him clear his head and get the former first-round pick back on track. That being said, it's still not time to consider Agholor for a spot in anyone's lineup.

Fantasy Tip: This is the direction things were trending, so it's not a big surprise Matthews couldn't bounce back on a short week. His loss hurts an already suspect Eagles passing game, though it should give a little extra juice to Zach Ertz and Dorial Green-Beckham.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles abandoned the ground game early in Week 12 when they fell behind against Green Bay, but a friendlier matchup against Cincinnati Sunday should mean more work for Smallwood. He is a potential flex option in standard formats and a low-priced sleeper in DFS games.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (ankle) will be a true game-time decision in Week 13 versus the Cincinnati Bengals after not practicing Friday, Dec. 2, and the Eagles are reportedly "far less confident" in his availability than they were earlier in the week, according to NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks.
Fantasy Tip: The Eagles have perhaps the worst receiving corps in the league with Matthews, so they'll probably wait as long as possible before ruling him out - assuming they do. Zach Ertz would likely get peppered with targets if Matthews sits, while Dorial Green-Beckham would probably step up into the lead receiver role. Bryce Treggs and Nelson Agholor could also play minor roles as well, although both would not be worth using in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews will probably suit up, but his upside has been pretty minimal for most of the season with just three touchdowns. The Cincinnati Bengals are a midrange matchup, and he's a WR3 in PPR.

Fantasy Tip: Wendell Smallwood is expected to be the lead back with Darren Sproles likely in passing situations. Smallwood didn't impress with nine carries for 37 yards in the role last week, but the Cincinnati Bengals could pose a sneaky matchup advantage. The Bengals' offense is reeling, which could give the Eagles the opportunity to run more. Smallwood is a low-end flex play. Sproles is much of the same in PPR formats only.

Fantasy Tip: Smallwood was the lead back last week and managed just nine carries for 37 yards. The Cincinnati Bengals are a midrange matchup, but Smallwood might be a better play this week. The Bengals' offense isn't as explosive without a couple key parts, and the Eagles may be able to run the ball more. Look for Smallwood as a low-end flex option.
