Jordan Matthews: Eagles don't need a No. 1 receiver
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/3/15) With Jeremy Maclin no longer in Philadelphia, a question remains as to how the Eagles will fill the void at receiver.
As far as second-year wideout Jordan Matthews is concerned, that question is irrelevant. Speaking to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Matthews said the receiving corps that is still in Philadelphia will be able to pick up the slack.
"People ask me about being the No. 1 wide receiver; forget it," Matthews said. "I want us to be a receiving corps. That's what I want it to be."
Matthews added that the perception a team needs a so-called No. 1 receiver is overblown, evidenced by the Patriots and Seahawks reaching the Super Bowl this past season.
"I don't think one 'No. 1 wide receiver' was in the Super Bowl this year, but they're two Super Bowl-winning teams that have receiving corps that work their butts off, that block in the run game, that catch the ball when they have to," Matthews said. "Whatever public perception about what they think we should look like or what they think we need, if we go out there and put a product on the field that wins games, then we can change all perceptions."
Matthews finished the 2014 season with 872 yards and eight touchdowns.

Rookie WR Jordan Matthews among Eagles cleared to play
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(12/28/14) Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews is active for Sunday's game at the Giants after being listed as probable with a knee injury. Also suiting up for Philly are outside linebacker Trent Cole (hand), defensive tackle Beau Allen (shoulder), defensive end Brandon Bair (knee), tight end Trey Burton (back), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (ankle) and safety Chris Maragos.
Riley Cooper steps up with other WRs quiet
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/21/14) For as productive as Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews have been in the second half of the season, neither seemed to be a big target for quarterback Mark Sanchez in Week 16 at Washington. Tight end Zach Ertz got all the targets for the Eagles, but wide receiver Riley Cooper scored the touchdowns, hauling in a 3-yard slant late in the second quarter and making a leaping 16-yard grab early in the fourth. He finished with five catches for 53 yards.
Cooper entered the game with just one touchdown all season, and he hadn't topped 50 yards since Week 8 at Arizona. Matthews, a rookie, had seemingly overtaken him in the pecking order, but now Matthews has averaged just 33.0 receiving yards in his last four games.
The bigger upset for Cooper in Week 16 was outperforming Maclin, who had four catches for 62 yards. Maclin had only one fewer target than Cooper, though, and still finished with more yardage, so you have little reason to believe Cooper is now the preferred option. He and Matthews may be 2A and 2B, though, which makes both hard to trust Week 17 at the Giants.
|Jordan Matthews has the chance for a big season this year, and we're excited for his outlook. The last two No. 1 receivers for Eagles coach Chip Kelly, DeSean Jackson in 2013 and Jeremy Maclin last year, both set career highs in production and were Fantasy stars. Jackson was the No. 9 Fantasy receiver in standard leagues with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns on 126 targets. And Maclin was also No. 9 last year with 85 catches for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns on 143 targets. Matthews had a solid rookie season in 2014 with 67 catches for 872 yards and eight touchdowns on 105 targets, and he reached double digits in Fantasy points six times. Five of those games came with Mark Sanchez as the starter, and Sanchez will compete with Sam Bradford for the starting job this year. But no matter who starts under center for the Eagles, we still expect Matthews to dominate. He's a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver on Draft Day worth drafting as early as Round 4 in all formats.
