Eagles address WR need with Jordan Matthews


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Eagles needed a receiver with DeSean Jackson gone, and they addressed the position by drafting Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews in the second round.

Matthews will likely be No. 3 on the depth chart behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, and he will have minimal Fantasy value in 2014. He should, however, help Nick Foles and the Eagles offense.

Matthews is a good receiver, but he's not a burner, which the Eagles will miss with Jackson gone. Still, this receiving corps is starting to look solid with Maclin, Cooper, Matthews, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles.

It should only help Folk, who depended heavily on Jackson last year. He's still a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, but he's a great one to wait for with a late-round pick.

As for Matthews, he's only worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, and he's a solid second-round pick in rookie-only formats.


Eagles will be OK even without DeSean Jackson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/6/2014) The Eagles lost DeSean Jackson this offseason, and Fantasy owners are concerned their offense could struggle without a deep threat down the field. It's possible, but there's still plenty of talent for Fantasy owners to tap into even though Jackson is gone.

For an in-depth look at some of the top Eagles players -- Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Zach Ertz -- check out this blog I wrote in looking at their preseason outlooks. A lot can change between now and the start of the season, but here is one view on the Eagles heading into this year.

Eagles using Broncos' offense as a model


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles won't lack for targets in 2014. Receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin are under contract, joining receiver DeSean Jackson, tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek and of course running back LeSean McCoy.

Askef if there will be enough passes to go around, general manager Howie Roseman told Birds 24/7 that he's trying to follow Denver's model.

"When you look at how many offensive plays that you have over the course of the season, there’s a lot of opportunities to spread the ball around, get people involved," Roseman said. "I don’t think you have to look further than when you look at the Denver Broncos and how many options they have in their passing game and how big of an advantage that is when you have guys all around the field and you can get different personnel groups and that’s what we’re looking to do. We're looking to be an explosive, dynamic offense and when you talk about the skills that he has, Jeremy, certainly he adds to that group."

Maclin was the latest to sign when he inked a one-year deal Saturday.


Riley Cooper's deal for five years


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/27/2014) The Eagles have signed receiver Riley Cooper to a contract extension, but the exact terms of the deal aren't yet known.

The latest report by ESPN says Cooper signed a five-year, $25 million deal. Comcast Sports Net previously reported the deal was four years.

Regardless, Cooper is coming back to the Eagles in 2014, and he will look to build off his performance in 2013 when he had 47 catches for 835 yards and eight touchdowns.


Report: Riley Cooper's deal for four years


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) The Eagles and wide receiver Riley Cooper are close to announcing a contract for the soon-to-be free agent, and according to CSNPhilly.com, the deal will be announced Thursday. The contract is expected to be for four years, though financial terms are not yet known.

Cooper put together the best season of his career on the field in 2013, finishing with 47 catches for 835 yards and eight touchdowns.


Report: Eagles, Riley Cooper nearing multiyear deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) The Eagles and receiver Riley Cooper are close to agreeing on a new contract, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Cooper is coming off a breakout season in which he caught 47 passes for 835 yards and eight touchdowns.

Cooper is slated to become a free agent March 11. The paper expects his deal to be announced in the next few days.


Report: Riley Cooper is Eagles' priority, not Jeremy Maclin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Contrary to a recent Philadelphia Inquirer report claiming the Eagles prefer Jeremy Maclin to Riley Cooper, Pro Football Talk asserts it's the other way around and "it's not even close." Both receivers are about to be free agents.

The report notes Cooper thrived in his first year as a starter while Maclin sat out last season after tearing his ACL.


Eagles prefer Jeremy Maclin to Riley Cooper


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) With two of their key receivers heading to free agency, the Eagles would rather re-sign Jeremy Maclin than Riley Cooper, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Philly's plan is to sign Maclin to a one-year deal and land another starting-caliber wideout in free agency, the report said.

The Eagles could "circle back" to Cooper if they don't land another target. Coach Chip Kelly watched Maclin practice before tearing his ACL and "saw enough of the receiver to be convinced that he would thrive in his system," a source told the paper.

Cooper already has drawn interest from several teams, the report said. He had 742 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in the final 11 games after Nick Foles took over as quarterback.


Patriots have decisions to make at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) The Patriots have to make some decisions at receiver this offseason, reports the Boston Herald

The first is deciding to pay free agent Julian Edelman. The report says Edelman might want a contract similar to what Danny Amendola got last season (five years and a max value of $31 million). But the Patriots will probably offer Edelman something similar to their offer to Wes Welker (two years, $10 million). Based on that, the report expects Edelman to chase the money elsewhere.

Amendola is safe this offseason despite a down year, but he could be released after the 2014 season if he struggles again. The team hopes the three second-year receivers of Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce continue to develop, and getting Rob Gronkowski (ACL) back at 100 percent is vital.

The Patriots also could look at receivers in free agency, especially if Edelman leaves, and they could be in play for Eric Decker, Jeremy Maclin or Hakeem Nicks. Or if Edelman returns, the Patriots could still add someone like Brandon LaFell, Nate Burleson, Riley Cooper or Kenny Britt.


Eagles have decision to make at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/13/2014) The Eagles will have to make a decision this offseason about bringing back free agent receivers Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, and Jason Avant also could be a cap casualty based on his salary and lack of production, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The report says "expect Maclin to be a priority" even though he missed the season with a torn ACL. He could settle for a one-year deal trying to prove he's back to full strength with the hope of earning a long-term contract.

Cooper is coming off a career season, and the report says Kelly values Cooper for his size and ability to block. But the Eagles must determine whether he's replaceable compared to the money he'll potentially command on the open market.

As for Avant, he could be released or asked to take a pay cut. He's coming off his worst statistical season since 2008 and his production does not merit $3.25 million – especially if the Eagles pay Maclin and/or Cooper big money.


Eagles' receiver situation is 'complicated'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Eagles receivers Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper are entering free agency, and general manager Howie Roseman won't rule out bringing both back. But he also noted wideout is a very strong position in the draft, reports CSNPhilly.com.

“I think it is complicated, because you have guys that you want to have back,” Roseman said, “and also, what resources are you going to devote to that position with the guys who are already on the roster?

“And then you look at it in the draft, obviously a very strong position, so I think ... it's a complicated situation but we've never ruled out bringing both of those guys back.”

The logical assumption is that either Maclin or Cooper won't return, the report said.
