2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Mathews played in just six games last season, a fitting end to an injury-riddled career with San Diego. Mathews managed to play a full 16 games just once in five seasons with the Chargers, as knee, ankle, hamstring, head, and collarbone injuries kept the former first-round pick on the sideline. When healthy, Mathews proved to be a solid tailback with a nice mix of power and speed. He posed a career high 1,255 yards on 285 carries in 2013, with a respectable 4.4 yards per carry average. As a member of the Eagles, Mathews will work as a complimentary back to DeMarco Murray, who also joined the team this offseason via free agency. Murray will be the primary back, with Mathews filling a backup role. It is possible Mathews could earn the goal line carry duties, making him a viable flex play in standard leagues and has high value as a handcuff for Murray owners. Mathews’ high-ceiling makes him a valuable target in the mid-to-late rounds of your draft.

Murray on the way out in Philly?
Eagles, RB "not in a good place"
By: Doug Orth | Thu Feb 4, 6:50 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
A coaching change hasn't improved the situation for Eagles RB DeMarco Murray. Even with Chip Kelly being sent packing and the hire of coach Doug Pederson, the former NFL rushing leader and his team are not in a good place. In fact, Eagles and Murray appear headed toward a stare-down regarding his future with the organization, according to several sources informed of the situation. The division boils down to: Murray's unsuccessful 2015 campaign during which he rushed for only 702 yards, the Eagles' lack of conviction that he's the right back and the massive contract Murray signed last offseason. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: A trade is probably out of the question for Murray, who signed a five-year, $40 million deal last offseason. Also working against Murray is his age (he'll turn 28 in mid-February and injury history. Furthermore, Ryan Mathews is a more-than-capable back when healthy and about half as expensive as the ex-Cowboy. If Murray is still on the Eagles' roster next season, he will likely be sharing carries with Murray and should be considered no more than a low-end RB2.


Darren Sproles to be featured RB?
Uncertainty surrounds DeMarco Murray
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 13, 7:15 am

Philadelphia Eagles
After a troubling week, #Eagles have weighed all options with DeMarco Murray, even sitting him. Either way, Darren Sproles will be featured. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: DeMarco Murray appears to be digging his grave in Philadelphia. He hasn't been a good fit for Chip Kelly's east-west running offense and Kelly refuses to scheme plays that fit Murray's North-South style. Sproles makes for an interesting DFS play and a solid FLEX, RB2 play is season-long leagues. Ryan Mathews should also see action.


DeMarco Murray a non-factor again in Week 13
Lost 47 of 61 snaps to Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 7, 4:40 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
No big deal, Chip Kelly said. Watching the game it sure felt like a big deal. Struggling DeMarco Murray, last year’s NFL rushing leader, clearly appeared to be demoted Sunday, his workload reduced to just eight carries in the Eagles’ upset win over the Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Murray played only 14 of 61 snaps Sunday after averaging 36 snaps before Sunday. His previous low this season was 25 vs. the Redskins. With Murray benched most of the game, the Eagles used Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner to carry the fooball. (CSN Philly)

FFToday's Take: Kelly explained the carry split by saying he believed that the smaller, faster Barner and Sproles would be better matchups for the Eagles against the Patriots’ larger linebackers. He also said on Monday that he plans on evaluating his running back rotation on a "week-to-week basis" going forward. It's looking more and more as if Kelly might be willing to feature Ryan Mathews, who has missed the last three games, down the stretch if can be cleared of his concussion soon.


Injury Bradford, Mathews out for the Eagles
Both suffered concussions in Week 10.
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 20, 12:15 pm

Philadelphia Eagles
Already facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers without quarterback Sam Bradford, the team will be without running back Ryan Mathews due to a concussion, the team announced. Left tackle Jason Peters (back) is also questionable. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: As expected, Mark Sanchez will get the start at quarterback while DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner will handle the running back duties. Murray's workload may not increase all that much with Mathews out but he may get an extra opportunity or two around the goaline.


Injury Bradford, Mathews miss practice Thursday
Both suffered concussion in Week 10
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 19, 11:45 am

Philadelphia Eagles
Chip Kelly said that Sam Bradford and Ryan Mathews haven't cleared concussion protocol to practice. Jason Peters won't practice either. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mark Sanchez is expected to start with Bradford suffering a concussion and shoulder injury in Week 10. He's a decent streamer option against a defense giving up the tenth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. If Mathews sits, most analysts are expecting DeMarco Murray to absorb more action but Kenyon Barner will be active which may cut into Murray's expected bump in workload.
