2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Matthews appears to be the forgotten receiver in Philly this season after posting a surprisingly good, but injury shortened season in 2016. Despite playing in just 14 games, Matthews finished with 73 catches for 804 yards and three touchdowns on 117 targets. His 16-game pace would have left him with an 82/904/4 line, making him a viable flex or matchup play in deeper 12 and 14 team leagues.

With the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith helping to take away coverage from Matthews in the slot, the former second-round pick from Vanderbilt could have a bounce back year and post close to the eight touchdowns he averaged in his first two seasons in the league.

Update 8/15/17: As the forgotten man in the Eagles passing offense heading into the 2017 season, Jordan Matthews' fantasy outlook looked fairly glum with so many receiving threats in Philadelphia. With a shocking trade to Buffalo for cornerback Ronald Darby, the outlook for Matthews changed dramatically as the former second round pick from Vanderbilt will likely slide into the No.1 receiving slot for the Bills in 2017.

Expectations should still be tempered, as the Bills are a run-first team and Matthews does not have the game-breaking speed nor the downfield receiving skills of Sammy Watkins, the player whom he is replacing in the offense. But, Matthews owners should view this as an upgrade due to the fact that he will see an increase in volume.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jordan Matthews expected to play
Broken thumb
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 22, 7:35 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills WR Jordan Matthews (broken thumb) is expected to play today with a special glove vs. #Bucs, sources say. 2 wks earlier then expected. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Matthews broke his thumb in Week 4 so it's a bit of a surprise he has returned this early. He does give Tyrod Taylor some much needed help in a depleted receiving corps but Matthews has been nothing more than a WR5, having caught no more than 3 balls in any game this season.


Injury Jordan Matthews cleared to practice
Returning from thumb surgery
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 18, 11:00 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills WR Jordan Matthews took another step toward returning to the lineup on Wednesday. Just two weeks removed from thumb surgery, Matthews has been cleared to practice. “He’ll be day to day,” said head coach Sean McDermott. “He did get cleared to practice, so he will be out at practice. He’ll be listed as limited and we’ll just take it one day at a time at this point.” (BuffaloBills.com)

FFToday's Take: With only ten catches on the year, Jordan Matthews has been a non-factor for fantasy owners this season. The Bills do not offer much to fantasy owners in the passing game but Matthews' return to the field would be a step in the right direction.


Injury Jordan Matthews out at least a month
Thumb surgery

Bills WR Jordan Matthews will undergo thumb surgery and is expected to miss at least a month. (Sal Capaccio on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The loss of Matthews depletes an already weak receiving corps. Zay Jones and Andre Holmes appear to be Tyrod Taylor's top targets on the outside, but it may TE Charles Clay who sees an increase in target share.


Boldin has change of heart, retires from NFL
Veteran WR calls is quits
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 20, 7:00 pm

Buffalo Bills
Football has always been a priority for Anquan Boldin. But after 14 seasons, more than 200 games and nearly 14,000 yards receiving, the veteran wide receiver now feels a higher calling, which is why he left the Buffalo Bills on Sunday after only two weeks with the team and plans to retire. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Boldin signed with the Bills two weeks ago but after a couple key trades that included Sammy Watkins and DB Ronald Darby, the veteran receiver had a change of heart. He reportedly wants to focus on humanitarian and human rights work. His departure leaves the Bills with Jordan Matthews (chest), Zay Jones and Andre Holmes atop the wide receiver depth chart.


Injury Jordan Matthews suffers chip fracture in sternum
First practice as a Bill
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Aug 14, 7:15 am

Buffalo Bills
Injury Update: Jordan Matthews has a chip fracture in his sternum and will be listed as week to week. (BuffaloBills.com)

FFToday's Take: The Bills say their newly acquired wide receiver is week-to-week after suffering the injury in his first practice with his new team. "Week-to-week" implies that Mathews is going to miss a good portion of camp and will miss valuable getting to know the Bills passing game. Matthews is an uninspiring WR4 in redraft leagues.


Jordan Matthews headed to Buffalo
Bills shakeup wide receiver group
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 11, 1:45 pm

Buffalo Bills
The Eagles made a shocking move on Friday, trading away wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to the Buffalo Bills for cornerback Ronald Darby, the team announced Friday. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: The Bills have made significant changes to the wide receiver group over the last few days by acquiring Anquan Boldin, Mathews and trading star Sammy Watkins to the Rams. The Eagles have been talking up Nelson Agholor all pre-season and now it seems he's in line for the starting slot position with Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith on the outside. Matthews should step into the starting lineup in Buffalo and will see boost in fantasy value.


Jordan Matthews at risk of losing snaps?
Nelson Agholor enjoying strong camp
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 7, 5:40 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
The speculation that Jordan Matthews will lose playing time at slot wide receiver to Nelson Agholor was not quieted by offensive coordinator Frank Reich, who said Monday that the plan at the position “is a little bit different than last year.” “Right now, the whole receiver room is more competitive. ... So yeah, I think it is a little bit different than last year. I don’t know how it’s going to play out. Is it going to be a reduced role? Is it not? ... That’s going to be determined … by how he plays and how things play out in that room competitively,” Reich said. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

FFToday's Take: Reich suggested Matthews can play outside and there will be four-wide packages on occasion, but he also said he doesn't want to take his tight ends off the field either. Considering the team added Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith before Agholor's "awakening", Matthews very much appears to be in a fight for playing time. Owners would be wise to consider him a low-eend WR4 at best and start considering Agholor at the end of drafts.
