Rookie WR Nelson Agholor signs with Eagles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) The Eagles have signed 20th overall pick and wide receiver Nelson Agholor, per ESPN, which is further reporting that the four-year deal is worth about $9.4 million and includes a $5 million signing bonus.

Agholor is expected to compete for a starting spot outside or in the slot, where Jordan Matthews found success for Philadelphia a year ago.


Jordan Matthews: Eagles don't need a No. 1 receiver


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) 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. 


Jordan Matthews caps rookie year in style


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/28/2014) After a three-game lull, Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews finished the season strong, catching eight of 10 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown against the Giants. Matthews led Philly in every receiving category and posted his third 100-yard game.

Matthews broke loose for a 44-yard score in the first quarter, his eighth touchdown this year. He finished the season with 67 catches for 872 yards.


Rookie WR Jordan Matthews among Eagles cleared to play


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/28/2014) 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.

Nick Foles officially out, Bradley Fletcher questionable for Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles will miss the final game of the season with a collarbone injury. It will be Foles' eighth straight game out after suffering the injury Nov. 2 against the Texans. 

Cornerback Bradley Fletcher is also questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants witha a hip injury.

Jordan Matthews (knee), Beau Allen (shoulder), Brandon Bair (knee), Trent Cole (hand), Mychal Kendricks (ankle), Chris Maragos (Hamstring) and Casey Matthews (non-injury related) are all considered probable for the game.

The Eagles are 3-point underdogs against the Giants Sunday.


Riley Cooper steps up with other WRs quiet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) 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.


Eagles receive contributions from role players Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) 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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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).

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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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.
