Eagles WR Jordan Matthews was 'the best player on the field' when facing Baltimore defense

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec:

The Ravens defensive backs will be seeing Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews in their sleep over the next couple of days.

The second-year wide receiver out of Vanderbilt has been the best player on the field when the Eagles' first-team offense goes against the Ravens' first-team defense.

He's caught balls underneath, he's caught deep passes, he's drawn pass interference penalties. Nobody on the Ravens has been able to match up. If Matthews stays healthy, I'd be shocked if he didn't have a big year.

Fantasy Impact: 

The offseason buzz has been strong. With Jeremy Maclin gone, Matthews will have to play more than the 65% of the snaps that he played as a rookie. He was the #24 WR in standard formats, so increased playing time should lead to a better finish. He won't be limited to the slot in 2015.
