|Golden Tate acquired by Eagles|
Lions get 3rd round pick from Philly
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 30, 2:00 pm
|Adam Schefter on Twitter: "Detroit is trading WR Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round pick, per source."
FFToday's Take: Well, it's been a busy day for trades so far and since Schefty didn't get to break the DeMaryius news, he's leading the charge on the Tate deal. This will hurt Nelson Agholor's value and enhance the value of Carson Wentz going forward. Without much of a big-name running game, the Eagles must have felt they need to bolster their receiving corps and add to their current group of Alshon Jeffrey, Agholor and Jordan Matthews. Perhaps Tate will see more of a slot role, splitting snaps on the outside with Matthews when Agholor fills that spot.
| Alshon Jeffery could return next week|
Expected to miss Week 3

|Eagles’ WR Alshon Jeffery, questionable with a shoulder injury, is not expected to play against the Colts on Sunday, per source. Jeffery could return next week. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With Jeffery expected to miss, the Eagles will roll with Nelson Agholor, Kamar Aiken and newly acquired Jordan Matthews at receiver. Agholor and Aiken should receiver the most playing with Agholor being the only trustworthy fantasy option at receiver.
|Jordan Matthews returns to Philadelphia|
Eagles depleted at WR
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 19, 8:00 am
|Depleted at wide receiver, the Eagles turned to a familiar face for help, signing Jordan Matthews on Wednesday while placing starting wideout Mike Wallace on injured reserve. He was traded to the Buffalo Bills prior to the start of last season along with a third-round pick for cornerback Ronald Darby. Hampered by injury, Matthews bounced from Buffalo to New England and was released by the Patriots with an injury settlement in August. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Eagles are thin at receiver with Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) still week-to-week according to head coach Doug Pederson and Mike Wallace injuring his ankle in Week 2. Kamar Aiken played the majority of snaps last week along with Nelson Agholor. Matthews has typically played in the slot, so its unclear how the Eagles will utilize him given Agholor has taken to the inside position.
