Eagles Beat: 'Expect Jordan Matthews-type snaps/production' out of WR Nelson Agholor

Sheil Kapadia, Philly Mag - [Full Article]

Eagles beat writer Sheil Kapadia was asked which rookies would contribute in 2015:

Nelson Agholor is going to play a lot of snaps; that's a guarantee. Whether it's in the slot or on the outside, expect Jordan Matthews-type snaps/production out of him.

Fantasy Impact: 

Agholor joins a receiving corps that has lost its best receiver (DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin) in each of the past two offseasons. He’s expected to win a starting job, likely outside opposite Riley Cooper with Jordan Matthews in the slot. If that’s the case, he’ll be a fantasy factor as a rookie. Matthews finished #25 in PPR formats as a rookie last season. That sort of production is certainly feasible for Agholor if he plays starter's snaps and the team gets good play out of the quarterback position.
