Eagles Beat: Jordan Matthews 'could be vying' for an outside role in 2015

Sunday, March 1, 2015, 5:16pm

Philadelphia Eagles - [Full Article]

It's possible that we've only seen the tip of the iceberg from Jordan Matthews. He was great in his role as the Eagles' slot wide receiver, but with the speed and production he showed this season, Matthews could be vying for an outside wideout position come Training Camp. He certainly has the size and the hands to keep producing at this level for the forseeable future. With a full offseason to tighten his game and develop a rapport, Matthews should be able to use his rookie season as a stepping stone to bigger and brighter things in 2015.

Fantasy Impact:

Matthews averaged 4.1-39-.29 (or 9.8 PPR fantasy points) in the seven games that Nick Foles started and finished. He posted 4.4-70-.63 in the eight games that Mark Sanchez started and finished, but he actually averaged fewer targets with Sanchez (6.4 T/G) than he did with Foles (6.9 T/G). So while he was more efficient with Sanchez, he was targeted more heavily by Foles. The Eagles like him in the slot, but he's a candidate to start outside and then move inside in three-receiver sets. If that's the case, he will see his snaps played increase from his rookie season (65%) and he should be able to improve on his #25 finish in PPR formats.

Scouting Report

Week 17 - Sanchez vs. NY Giants

Mark Sanchez put together a nice fantasy outing last week, throwing for 374 yards and two more TDs, but did throw a costly INT. He added 22 rushing yards but did fumble. He's now turned the ball over 13 times in eight games played this year.

The 374 yards is the most he's thrown for this season and the two TDs gave him 12 in eight games, but the turnovers continue to leave points, both real and fantasy, on the field. Reports say Sanchez will start against the Giants in Week 17. It's a nice matchup as the G-men are near the bottom of the league in allowing fantasy points to QBs. It's not out of the question Matt Barkley gets some work, especially with Sanchez entering free agency after the season. The Birds may want to get a look at Barkley. But for now, the team says Sanchez will start.
