Eagles beat writer Phil Sheridan on WR Jordan Matthews: Matthews is the prototype for what Kelly wants in his receivers: 6-foot-3, 212 pounds, good speed. This is why DeSean Jackson, for all his production, is not here anymore. Jackson simply can't block in the run game or on bubble screens to teammates. Matthews' size allows HC Chip Kelly to use him in a variety of ways, and the coach hasn't hesitated to expand the rookie's role. Remember, Kelly spent most of his career coaching 19-year-olds. So he doesn't shy away from playing rookies or second-year guys in the NFL. Also, Matthews seemed to play faster and with more confidence Monday night than we'd seen up until then. I think he's just getting started.
Matthews has shown a good rapport with QB Mark Sanchez that dates back to their time together on the second team in training camp. His snaps are consistently in the 60 to 70 percent range and he's outplaying starting WR Riley Cooper, whose snaps are down a bit in recent weeks. We believe there is a changing of the guard going on in Philadelphia, so Matthews should be owned in all leagues. He's a Sneaky Start in what should be a high scoring game against the Packers in Week 11.

Week 17 - Cooper vs. NY Giants
Riley Cooper waited until Week 16 for his bust-out game, catching five balls for 53 yards and two TDs. The two TDs give him three total in what's been a disappointing season. Cooper gets a decent matchup this week against the Giants who are ranked in the bottom half of the league in allowing fantasy points to TEs. Cooper is again a risk despite coming off a nice game. Between Week 9 and Week 15, Cooper's highest yardage output was 49 yards.
