Kenjon Barner has made some noise at OTAs with Mathews sidelined with a hamstring injury. Rookie Wendell Smallwood also looks good, per reports. Mathews returned to workouts, however, and should start for the Eagles. He's coming off of a 5.0 YPC season and in 54 career games with at least 10 carries, Mathews has averaged 14.6 FP in PPR formats. Those are strong RB1 numbers. He's an injury risk, but at the cost of a 5th or 6th round pick, he's worth it.
