Kelly: Eagles WR Jordan Matthews to stay in the slot

Geoff Mosher, Twitter - [Full Article]

Eagles HC Chip Kelly says Riley Cooper is doing a good job and Jordan Matthews not going to see reps outside soon. Says he wants that big, physical slot presence.

Fantasy Impact: 

It doesn't sound like Matthews is going to usurp Cooper anytime soon. Matthews is playing 50-66% of the snaps (61% average), and that number will need to rise before he'll become a dependable fantasy starter. The good news is that the Eagles run a lot of plays, so a 61% snap percentage is more appealing for an Eagles player than it is for most other teams.
