It seems as though the question is "when" not "if" Eagles WR Jordan Matthews will make the jump to the first-team. HC Chip Kelly looks like he is burying rookies on the depth chart and making them earn significant practice time, as none of the players selected in last month's NFL draft are seeing time with the first-team on either offense or defense so far.

The second-round pick has caught everything thrown his way from routine crossing routes to one-handed tip-toe catches along the sidelines. At times it's difficult to remember that he is only a rookie and was a second-round pick.

Fantasy Impact: 

Matthews will likely see snaps in the slot (at least) this season. Jeremy Maclin is working his way back from an ACL injury and Riley Cooper is solid, but unspectacular. There is opportunity in this offense if Matthews has a great summer, and by most accounts he has. Rookie wideouts usually don’t live up to their ADP, but there is the occasional exception.
