Beset by injuries at the position, the Eagles inked wide receiver Jordan Matthews to a one-year, $700k contract.
Matthews should instantly slot in behind Nelson Agholor as the Eagles' second wide receiver. He will be no higher than third in line for targets, trailing both Agholor and tight end Zach Ertz. There are rumblings Alshon Jeffery could be back for Week 3, which would push Matthews even further down the pecking order. His best case scenario is likely a slot wide receiver role that sees 5-6 targets per game. That doesn't make him terribly fantasy relevant, but if your bench is a black hole or you play in a deeper league, there are worse fliers to be had.
BUF WR Jordan Matthews - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 9 at New York Jets
With the addition of WR Kelvin Benjamin via trade, Jordan Matthews will settle into a role as the Bills' No. 2 receiver, where he is probably better suited. From a fantasy standpoint, his stock drops and that's not saying much considering the numbers he had been putting up—averaging just over 3 targets and less than 3 receptions per game.
If you have Matthews on your roster, he definitely should not be in your lineup, and finding a better option on the waiver wire is something you should consider.
