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.


Jordan Matthews scores first two career touchdowns


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews proved to be a dependable red zone target Sunday, in a 37-34 win over Washington in Week 3.

Matthews, who had just three receptions during his first two games, hauled in eight of nine passes thrown his way Sunday. He finished the game with just 59 yards on those eight catches, but made an impact near the goal line, as he scored twice from 11 yards out.

Matthews was expected to be a solid contributor as the team's third receiver, but consistency has been an issue. He has 11 receptions for 113 yards and two touchdowns through three games, heading into Week 4 against the 49ers. 


Eagles get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) The Eagles received several contributions in their 30-27 win Monday night. Wideout Jordan Matthews caught a 17-yard pass on four targets and receiver Riley Cooper caught one of three targets for 8 yards.

They'll take on the Redskins in Week 3.


Rookie moves ahead of Brad Smith as Eagles' No. 3 WR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Eagles rookie Jordan Matthews has moved ahead of Brad Smith on the team's unofficial depth chart as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Eagles reserves total 64 receiving yards


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Notable Eagles receiving performances from Week 1 vs. the Jaguars include: tight end Brent Celek (three catches for 15 yards), Jordan Matthews (two catches for 37 yards) and Jeff Maehl (a 12-yard catch).

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.
