FF Today's Take: With Jordan Matthews inactive expect tight ends Zach Ertz and Trey Burton to be active in the passing game. Starting wide receivers will likely be Nelson Agholor, Dorial Green-Beckham and Paul Turner.

Eagles RB could be PPR factor in Week 16

FF Today's Take: Darren Sproles would be a decent RB3/flex if he can play this week against the Giants. He'll still have to clear the NFL concussion protocol, but this is good news.

DGB could sit, Matthews expected to play
|The Eagles could possibly be down to three wide receivers when they host the Washington Redskins, Sunday.
And head coach Doug Pederson doesn't anticipate making a roster move. Dorial Green-Beckham (ribs) and Jordan Matthews (ankle) are both listed as questionable for Sunday's game, leaving just second-year man Nelson Agholor and rookies Paul Turner and Bryce Treggs as healthy receivers on the roster.

FF Today's Take: Jordan Matthews is expected to play but Dorial Green-Beckham is a candidate for the inactive list after not practicing on Friday. The Eagles will likely use Darren Sproles and tight ends Zach Ertz and Trey Burton more than usual in the passing game.

WR dealing with ankle injury but expected to play Week 14
|Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) on Twitter: "Doug Pederson: DGB (oblique contusion) and Big V (knee) won't practice today. Jordan Matthews and Ryan Mathews will, expected to play Sun." (Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: With Dorial Green-Beckham suffering the ill effects of a Vontaze Burfict collision, Matthews makes for a fine WR3 play this week. Fire up Ryan Mathews (sprained MCL) as well.

|Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews is not expected to play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals because of a sprained ankle, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Matthews suffered a sprained ankle Monday night against the Packers. His absence means Nelson Agholor should be active this week. Dorial Green-Beckham becomes a viable WR3 with Matthews out.

Jordan Matthews expected to play
|Running back Ryan Mathews (knee), Jordan Matthews (ankle) headline the walking wounded.
Mathews remains officially listed as day-to-day and Pederson explained that he is "doing good," but was held out of practice as a precaution.
Pederson said that Matthews will be fine for the game after X-rays on his ankle were negative. (NJ.com)|
FF Today's Take: Ryan Mathews is likely to miss Week 13 with his knee injury but it sounds like WR Jordan Matthews will be available after spraining his ankle Monday night. Matthews will be on the WR3 radar against the Bengals.

WR Dorial Green-Beckham picks up slack (5-82-0) in loss to Packers
|Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews is dealing with an ankle injury in the aftermath of Monday's 27-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers. His playing status for Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals is unclear. (Bleacher Report)|
FF Today's Take: Matthews left the game and briefly returned before leaving for good shortly after the start of the second half. Dorial Green-Beckham is still a pretty raw receiver who frequently makes costly mistakes -- as he did on an offensive interference penalty that wiped out a long catch-and-run by Darren Sproles in the second half. If Matthews misses time, he'll be the Eagles default WR1, but expect Sproles and doghouse-occupying Nelson Agholor to get more targets in Week 13.
