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 9 - Foles vs. Houston
Nick Foles attempted an Eagles record 62 passes last week, completing 36 of them for 411 yards and two TDs. He did add two more interceptions to his total and now has nine on the year to 12 TD passes.

If turnovers don't count against your fantasy totals, Foles is producing enough for you to roll with week-to-week. But even if the turnovers don't count, he's at the very least costing you plays and drives that could turn into TDs. As a result, Foles comes in ninth again this week on our QB list. It's a tough matchup against the Texans, who rank 11th in allowing fantasy points to QBs. The potential is always there for Foles and the Eagles offense, but we keep waiting for the break out game.
