Eagles Beat: WR Jordan Matthews will play 'a lot more outside'

Wednesday, May 20, 2015, 12:01pm

Philly Mag - [Full Article]

Eagles beat writer Sheil Kapadia on the team's receiving roles:

One thing I know about Chip Kelly: He believes in making rookies earn playing time. So don't be surprised/alarmed if Nelson Agholor starts out with the second or third team. But given how advanced Agholor seems to be from a mental standpoint, he could be the exception.

Riley Cooper's role is one we probably haven't discussed enough here. There's a scenario where the Eagles settle on Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff and Agholor as the top three receivers, leaving Cooper on the sideline. ... But Huff will have to prove he's a more reliable option in his second year to earn those snaps.

As for Matthews' role, my guess is he plays a lot more outside in 2015. I didn't think his size was a huge advantage in the slot last year, even though he was highly productive in that role, and Agholor may be better suited to play inside as a rookie.

Fantasy Impact:

Matthews will have to play more than the 65% of the snaps that he played as a rookie. He was the #24 WR in standard formats, so increased playing time should lead to a better finish. We're more interested in just how much Agholor, Huff and Cooper will play.

Scouting Report

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.
