2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Jordan Matthews was impressive as a rookie, but struggled as a sophomore when thrust into a larger role in the offense. Matthews’ struggles were mostly mental as he suffered from too many drops, but so far the reports indicate that he has been catching everything thrown his way in OTAs and training camp. Despite his struggles, Matthews still managed 85 receptions for 997 yards and 8 touchdowns last season and heads into this season as the most talented wide receiver in an uninspiring crew. The problem is the coaching staff doesn’t like him as an outside wide receiver and thinks he struggles when moved from the slot and unlike last season, the team’s base offense shouldn’t feature three wide receiver sets. If Mathews doesn’t find an outside game, he could see far less snaps this season. At 6’3” and 212 pounds he should have more than adequate size to play outside, so hopefully he can find away to change the coaching staff’s perception of him. It’s hard to imagine that the coaches wouldn’t want their best player on the field, but the Chiefs were content to line up subpar wide receivers for a few years before acquiring Jeremy Maclin last off-season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Eagles acquire Dorial Green-Beckham from Titans
Move likely demotes Nelson Agholor back to bench
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 16, 10:18 am

Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles official Twitter account just announced a stunning trade: "TRADE: #Eagles acquire WR Dorial Green-Beckham from Tennessee in exchange for G/T Dennis Kelly. #FlyEaglesFly" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: While Green-Beckham had failed to establish an exceptional role in the Titans offense, it's surprising they'd give up on him in exchange for a second-rate offensive lineman. He has explosive talent and should push for a role behind WR1 Jordan Matthews. This trade may improve DGB's fantasy outlook but it's pretty devastating for Nelson Agholor -- who could be on his way out of the starting lineup.


Injury Jordan Matthews out two weeks
"No structural damage, but he's just sore"
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Aug 8, 12:30 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles' leading receiver in 2015 and expected to be the leader again in 2016, will not play in the team's first two preseason games and could miss the entire preseason. Jordan Matthews suffered a strained knee Friday, Aug. 5 when he took a low hit from rookie cornerback Jalen Mills in a full contact drill. "There's no structural damage, but he's just sore." (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: Others reports suggest Matthews suffered a bone bruise. Either way, the Eagles top receiver is going to miss some time which is not ideal considering a new offense is being installed. Matthews is being drafted as a WR3 (Rd 6.09) on average.


Nelson Agholor enters camp as No.2 wideout
Rueben Randle, Josh Huff, Chris Givens next up on depth chart
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 6, 8:00 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Assuming he isn't suspended for an incident last month at a Philadelphia strip club, Agholor will enter training camp as the No. 2 receiver, and the team's top option on the outside. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: This has been the prevailing wisdom for some time now but it's nice to see that NJ.com agrees. It might be tough to support two fantasy wideouts in Doug Pederson's offensive system. Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz are inline to be the top two targets for Sam Bradford this fall.
