Jordan Matthews "could be a star in the future"
Drawing comparisons for sporting T.O.-like physique
By: Doug Orth | Jul 17 2014, 4:25 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles' additions are intriguing. RB Darren Sproles figures to be as versatile and unpredictable under Chip Kelly as he was in New Orleans for Sean Payton. Second-round draft pick WR Jordan Matthews had people at OTAs comparing his physique to that of Terrell Owens and could be a star in the future. Meanwhile, TE Zach Ertz is expected to take that key second-season leap in production and reliability. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Comparing Matthews' physique to Terrell Owens' is a bit of preseason hyperbole, but fantasy owners would be wise to not underestimate the potential for the SEC's all-time leading receiver to contribute in his first year. He'll start out as the main slot receiver, but could easily knock Riley Cooper out of a starting job by midseason.
