Eagles receive contributions from role players Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:37 pm ET) The Eagles received contributions from several role players in a Week 16 defeat to Washington.

Darren Sproles registered 67 yards of total offensive. He took four handoffs for 24 yards and caught six of nine targets for 43 yards. Jordan Matthews was limited to only three grabs on five targets for 58 yards. Brent Celek caught his lone target for 15 yards.


Eagles unveil final injury report for Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Eagles have ruled quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone) and linebacker Trent Cole (hand) out for Saturday's contest against Washington, according to the team's final injury report. Outside of Foles and Cole, the Eagles enter Week 16 relatively healthy.

Linebacker Emmanuel Acho (groin), defensive tackle Beau Allen (shoulder), defensive end Brandon Bair (knee), tight end Brent Celek (neck), defensive tackle Bennie Logan (pectoral), safety Chris Maragos (hamstring), wide receiver Jordan Matthews (knee), kicker Cody Parkey (right groin) and running back Chris Polk (ankle) were labeled as probable.


Jordan Matthews' disappearance hard to figure


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) Jordan Matthews' two-catch, 23-yard performance against the Seahawks in Week 14 was pretty easy to understand. Quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for only 96 yards against a defense that allows next to nothing through the air these days. But Sanchez got back to a respectable 252 against the Cowboys in Week 15, and Matthews was nowhere to be found.

Really, he up and vanished. He dropped a short pass thrown his way in the second quarter, and that was it. One target, zero catches.

In the five games leading up to the Week 14 debacle, Matthews had seemingly become as reliable as Eagles top wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, averaging 5.0 catches for 82.6 yards with five touchdowns. Considering Maclin had four catches for 98 yards in this one, the gap between the two has again widened.

The Eagles have one of the most prolific passing offenses in the NFL, so you haven't seen the last of Matthews. But you hate to be questioning his consistency this time of year. Because the Eagles visit the Redskins in Week 16, who've allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers, you'll probably want to keep him active.


Eagles' Jeremy Maclin leads team with 98 receiving yards Week 15


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin caught four of his five targets for a team-high 98 yards in his team's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

Maclin's highlight came courtesy of a bad decision by his defender, who went for an interception despite having no help behind him. Maclin hauled in the catch and then followed a teammate blocking the one defender remaining between him and the goal line but was dragged down at the one-yard line on the 72-yard play.

Tight end Brent Celek racked up 52 yards while catching four of his six targets. Rookie Josh Huff received just one target but hauled it in across the middle and weaved his way toward the sideline for a 44-yard gain. Tight end Zach Ertz contributed three catches for 32 yards, while wide receiver Riley Cooper managed 17 yards on two receptions. Rookie Jordan Matthews recorded just one target but didn't catch it.

The Eagles will look to rebound against the Redskins in Week 16.


Eagles receivers don't do much Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Eagles receivers didn't amount to much Week 14 against the Seahawks.

Jordan Matthews finished second on the club in receiving, gaining 23 yards on two receptions. Jeremy Maclin had three catches, but did manage to find the end zone. He finished with 21 yards. Maclin's score came on a 1 yard pass in the first quarter. Riley Cooper also had three catches, but gained just 13 yards.

The trio will hope for more Week 15 against the Cowboys. 


Risky week for Eagles wide receivers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) Even with Mark Sanchez under center, the Eagles have had one of the most prolific passing attacks in the league, and wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews have both benefited, the latter joining the former as a high-end option in recent weeks.

But they'll both have their work cut out for them Week 14 against Seattle. Not only do the Seahawks rank third against the pass, giving up 199.4 yards per game, but they've allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. And they've been especially stifling lately, allowing an average of 126.0 passing yards to the last three quarterbacks they've faced.

Just ask the 49ers' Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree how that went for them last week. The two combined for six catches for 28 yards.

Of course, Maclin and Matthews have been much more valuable than Boldin and Crabtree in Fantasy. Maclin will have the occasional stinker but has been more or less a stud from the beginning, and Matthews has five touchdown catches in his last five games.

For what it's worth, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank both Maclin and Matthews among their top 30 wide receivers, with Matthews in their top 24, so if you play in a 12-team league with a flex spot, chances are you're starting both. But if you have uncommon depth at wide receiver, now might be the time to make use of it.


Jordan Matthews catches fifth TD in last five games


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews continued his productive rookie season in Thursday's win at Dallas, catching four of five targets for 51 yards and a touchdown. It was Matthews' fifth score in the last five games.

On the Eagles' second drive, Mark Sanchez rolled right and hit Matthews for a 27-yard touchdown. Matthews, who has caught at least four passes 10 times this season, had another end-zone throw go off his hands.

He'll play the Seahawks in Week 14.


Jordan Matthews, Zach Ertz among Eagles cleared to play


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews (knee) and tight end Zach Ertz (oblique) are active for the game at Dallas after being listed as probable. Also suiting up for Philly are linebacker Emmanuel Acho (groin), safety Nate Allen (ankle), defensive end Brandon Bair (elbow), kicker Cody Parkey (groin) and left tackle Jason Peters (quadriceps).

Eagles release Week 13 injury report


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) The Eagles announced Wednesday quarterback Nick Foles will miss a fourth straight game Thursday the Cowboys due to a collarbone injury. He headlines the team's Week 13 injury report.

Eagles WR Jordan Matthews added to injury report with knee issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews was added to the injury report leading up to Thursday's showdown against the Cowboys with a knee injury, according to ESPN on Modnay.

Matthews has led the team in receiving for the past three weeks, totaling 25 catches, 322 yards and three touchdowns over that span. On Sunday he came down with six grabs for 77 yards. He has 635 yards and six scores on the season.


Eagles WR Jordan Matthews leads the way in Week 12 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews led his position group in receiving yards for the third consecutive game, leading his team to a 43-24 victory over the Titans in Week 12.

Matthews was targeted eight times and finished with six grabs for 77 yards. He saw a streak of three games with at least one touchdown come to an end. He has 50 catches for 635 yards and six touchdowns on the season.

Philadelphia will face Dallas on Thanksgiving Day.


Jordan Matthews paces Eagles in receiving again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews led the team in receiving for the second straight game Week 11, catching five passes for 107 yards and a touchdown. Matthews became the third rookie in franchise history to post consecutive 100-yard receiving games, joining DeSean Jackson (2008) and Don Looney (1940).

Matthews ranked second on the team with eight targets. He had a bad drop early, but took a bubble screen 10 yards for a touchdown late in the third quarter. In the fourth, Matthews went high for a 40-yard grab over the middle.

Up to six touchdowns, Matthews plays the Titans in Week 12.


Jordan Matthews showing strong rapport with Mark Sanchez


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Eagles rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews has emerged as a true weapon for the team recently, as he posted his second 100-yard game in a row in a 53-20 loss to the Packers in Week 11.

One week after his massive 138-yard, two-touchdown showing, Matthews was once again Mark Sanchez's top option in the passing game. He hauled in five of eight passes for 107 yards and a touchdown, a 10-yard score in the third quarter when the game was already well out of hand.

Matthews , who had 313 yards in Nick Foles' eight starts, has 245 and three touchdowns in two games with Sanchez. More impressively, he has four touchdowns in 11 quarters playing with Sanchez, after having just two with Foles. The Foles injury might not be great news for the team as a whole, but it has certainly benefitted Matthews, who looks like he could be a useful Fantasy option down the stretch. 


Jordan Matthews goes off for 138 yards, 2 TDs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) Eagles rookie wideout Jordan Matthews showed great chemistry with new starting quarterback Mark Sanchez in Monday's whipping of Carolina. Matthews drew a team-high nine targets, catching seven passes for a season-high 138 yards and two touchdowns.

Matthews caught four passes on Philly's 91-yard touchdown drive to start the second quarter, capping it with a 13-yard score. In the fourth quarter he got wide open on a blitz and spun away from two defenders for an 18-yard touchdown.

With three touchdowns in his past two games -- all from Sanchez -- Matthews visits the Packers in Week 11.


Eagles WR Jordan Matthews grabs TD in defeat of Houston


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Eagles rookie wideout Jordan Matthews caught just three passes for 40 yards Sunday in Houston - his lowest reception total since Week 2. But he snagged one biggie to help his team win.

Matthews gathered in an 11-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter. He was shut out in the second half, however. He will attempt a more complete effort next Monday night against Carolina.


Anomaly benefits Riley Cooper, Jordan Matthews


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) Jeremy Maclin was the star of the Eagles receiving corps Week 8 at Arizona, catching 12 passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns. But on a day when quarterback Nick Foles threw for a season-high 411 yards on a career-high 62 attempts, it wasn't just a one-man show.

Riley Cooper and Jordan Matthews both stood out in the box score, with Cooper going for a season-high 88 yards on five catches, and Matthews getting double-digit targets for the second time this season. Matthews' actual production wasn't so impressive -- he caught six passes for 47 yards -- but he nearly scored a touchdown on the final play of the game, getting shoved out of bounds before he could land with what would have been a 16-yard catch.

The problem for Cooper and Matthews is that Foles won't throw for 411 yards on 62 attempts every week. In all likelihood, he won't achieve either of those high marks again this season.

So really, neither player's value changes in Fantasy. They were simply the beneficiaries of an anomalous performance by their quarterback.


Jordan Matthews targeted 11 times


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) With the Eagles passing 62 times Sunday, there were plenty of targets to go around. Rookie wideout Jordan Matthews drew a season-high 11 targets, catching six passes for 47 yards in the loss at Arizona.

Matthews failed to score for the fourth straight week. He'll visit Houston in Week 9.


Jordan Matthews catches four passes again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) For the third straight game, Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews hauled in four passes Sunday night. They went for 50 yards in the blowout of the Giants. Matthews was targeted six times, second on the team.

He's off Week 7 before visiting Arizona on Oct. 26.


Eagles receivers tough to rely on


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Eagles passing game has flat lined, leaving little room for secondary receiving options to find success. At this point, it is tough for Fantasy owners to rely on either Riley Cooper or Jordan Matthews.

Both Matthews and Cooper have had their moments of glory, with Cooper getting his in Week 5, with his first touchdown of the season. Matthews had had his in Week 3, when he hauled in two scores of his own. However, neither player has topped 4 Fantasy points in a game outside of their scoring efforts.

If you want to roll the dice on Nick Foles finding his way and the Eagles turning into a top-flight passing game once again, knock yourself out. For now, if he isn't named Jeremy Maclin, you probably don't want to rely on any Eagles receivers. 


Jordan Matthews catches four passes in Week 5 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Eagles rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews caught four of his seven targets for 35 yards in his team's 34-28 win over the Rams in Week 5.

Matthews has managed four catches and seven targets in back-to-back games after scoring twice during a breakout Week 3 performance. He should continue to emerge as he continues to build up experience in his rookie season. Matthews has delivered 19 receptions, 176 yards and two touchdowns in five games. The Eagles host the Giants in Week 6.


Jordan Matthews goes for 28 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews drew a healthy seven targets in the loss at San Francisco. But he came away with just four catches for 28 yards. It was a step back from his two-touchdown performance Week 3.

Matthews plays the Rams in Week 5.


Eagles' probables suit up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) A slew of Eagles who were listed as probable are active for the game in San Francisco. They include wideouts Jordan Matthews (oblique) and Brad Smith (groin), defensive end Brandon Bair (foot), cornerback Brandon Boykin (hip), tight end James Casey (knee), defensive end Fletcher Cox (back), offensive tackle Matt Tobin (ankle) and safety Earl Wolff (knee).

Eagles release injury report with mostly probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Probables dominate the injury report released Friday by the Eagles for their game Sunday in San Francisco.

Among those with that designation are defensive ends Fletcher Cox (back) and Brandon Bair (foot), cornerbacks Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) and Brandon Boykin (hip), tight end James Casey (knee), wide receivers Brad Smith (groin) and Jordan Matthews (oblique), tackle Matt Tobin (ankle) and safety Earl Wolff (knee).

Center Jason Kelce (hernia) and linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf) will not play. Wideout Josh Huff (shoulder) is questionable.


Looking ahead at Week 4 WR waiver wire options


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.  


Jordan Matthews worth a look on waivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews entered the season as everyone's favorite sleeper at the position. Matthews impressed at the combine after setting SEC records in career receptions and receiving yards, and entered the season as the favorite to serve as the Eagles' No. 3 wideout.

Matthews started to show some of that considerable potential in Week 3 against Washington, and is sure to be a hot commodity on the waiver wires this week. Matthews hauled in eight of the nine passes thrown his way for 59 yards Sunday, including a pair of 11-yard touchdowns.

Matthews was a true third receiver for the Eagles in Week 3, as he played 63 percent of the team's offensive snaps in the shootout. That represents a slight improvement from the first few weeks, when he played in 58 percent of the team's offense snaps. He is still well behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper in the receiving hierarchy, but the Eagles have been pass-happy enough (3rd in the NFL in attempts) to keep multiple receivers happy. Plus, Cooper has been less than impressive.

We still want to see more overall production from Matthews, but the fact that Foles was looking for him so much in Week 3 is a good sign. He is worth adding on waivers this week at least ahead of fellow Week 3 breakout receiver John Brown.
