All three players should play in Week 2 at Indy.


Jordan Matthews projected to dominate slot snaps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews "will see the most snaps in the slot in Week 1," projects PhillyMag.com in a breakdown of the team's wideouts. Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper will start on the outside.

Matthews caught 11 passes for 120 yards in the second and third preseason games.


Jordan Matthews cracks century mark in exhibition game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Eagles rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews cracked the century mark during Friday's exhibition game against New England.

Matthews didn't make his first grab until the second quarter, as he caught a 4-yard pass from starter Nick Foles. The rest of his work came from backups Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley. He caught all nine of his targeted passes for a game-high 104 yards.

Matthews is fighting to be the team's No. 3 receiver come Week 1.

Jordan Matthews sees larger role than Brad Smith in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Though Brad Smith was listed on the depth chart  ahead of Jordan Matthews, it was Matthews who played a bigger role in the Eagles' first preseason game against the Bears Friday.

Smith had just one reception for 4 yards in the game, while Matthews led the team with seven targets. He brought in four of those passes but managed to rack up just 14 yards, with a long reception of 5 yards.

Smith and Matthews are fighting for the No. 3 receiver job in camp. 


Brad Smith listed ahead of Jordan Matthews


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Eagles rookie Jordan Matthews is widely expected to serve as the No. 3 receiver, but the team's first depth chart lists veteran Brad Smith ahead of Matthews, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. Matthews has consistently wowed in camp, and coach Chip Kelly might just be delaying the inevitable.

Jordan Matthews looks ready to move up to first team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews has been dominating Philly's second-team defense, according to Birds 24/7's Sheil Kapaida. "I think it's time for Matthews to move up to the first team and square off against [corner] Brandon Boykin," Kapaida wrote. "I know [coach Chip] Kelly wants to slow down the hype, but he looks ready."

Quarterback Mark Sanchez repeatedly looks to Matthews. "I would say roughly 94 percent of Sanchez's completions today were to Matthews. Perhaps I'm being conservative," Kapaida wrote.


Jordan Matthews' buzz continues to grow


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews has good size at 6-3, 210 pounds to go along with "sneaky speed," reports The Star-Ledger. The second-round pick won praise from receivers coach Bob Bicknell during minicamp and OTAs and "showed the great hands that allowed him to catch 112 passes his senior year in college," the paper said.

"You guys are seeing the same things we are," Bicknell told the paper. "He’s looked very good so far."

A scout for an NFC team said Matthews could step in and possibly start. As it stands now, he projects as the No. 3 receiver behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper.


Jordan Matthews having good offseason


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews is doing well in OTA workouts so far, reports Philly.com.

The report says Matthews has "looked like the best wide receiver on the team ... and it hasn't been close." The report also adds, however, that Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin are "probably taking it a little easier in June."

Matthews is expected to be the No. 3 receiver for the Eagles behind Maclin and Cooper.


Jordan Matthews focused on the slot


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2014) Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews is focusing on playing the slot for his new team. He's practicing with the second-string for now but, per the Philadelphia Inquirer, it's "a matter of time" before he starts running with the starters in practice. 

"At Vanderbilt, I was in a situation where I had to do a lot of different things, play a lot of different positions," the 6-foot-3, 212-pound Matthews said. "Right now, I'm able to focus pretty much most of my attention on one thing and try and be great at that."

Currently, Brad Smith is playing in the slot with the starters in OTA workouts but Matthews should overtake him soon. And if either Jeremy Maclin or Riley Cooper falter or get hurt, Matthews is considered proficient enough to replace them since he mostly played on the outside in college. 


Eagles sign Jordan Matthews


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) The Eagles signed receiver Jordan Matthews, a second-round pick out of Vanderbilt, to a four-year deal. The all-time SEC leader in career receptions (262) and yards (3,759), Matthews will be used primarily in the slot.

Jordan Matthews to play in the slot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Eagles coach Chip Kelly said rookie receiver Jordan Matthews will be used primarily in the slot, replacing Jason Avant, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer

"The one thing he does is catch the ball in traffic," Kelly said. "He made an unbelievable amount of contested catches. He has such a wing span and will go up and get it. ... We've got Jeremy Maclin on one side and [Riley Cooper] on the other side, and then you throw him inside."

Matthews was drafted in the second round, at No. 42 overall.


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 nab receiver Jordan Matthews


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the 42nd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Eagles moved up to select Vanderbilt wide receiver Jordan Matthews .

At 6-foot-3 and 212 pounds, Matthews more than passes the eyeball test and offers good speed (4.4 in the 40) to go with strong route-running abilities and a big
catching radius to go with very good hands. He lined up all over the field for the Commodores and posted over 90 catches, over 1,300 yards and seven-plus scores in each of his last two seasons. Put all this together and he's a phenomenal long-term fit for the Eagles, who needed another receiver to replace DeSean Jackson. Though Matthews doesn't have Jackson's speed, he doesn't have his size, either. Look for Matthews to battle for playing time in training camp. 

The Eagles acquired the pick from the Titans, giving up picks No. 54 and 122.
