2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Matthews appears to be the forgotten receiver in Philly this season after posting a surprisingly good, but injury shortened season in 2016. Despite playing in just 14 games, Matthews finished with 73 catches for 804 yards and three touchdowns on 117 targets. His 16-game pace would have left him with an 82/904/4 line, making him a viable flex or matchup play in deeper 12 and 14 team leagues.

With the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith helping to take away coverage from Matthews in the slot, the former second-round pick from Vanderbilt could have a bounce back year and post close to the eight touchdowns he averaged in his first two seasons in the league.

Update 8/15/17: As the forgotten man in the Eagles passing offense heading into the 2017 season, Jordan Matthews' fantasy outlook looked fairly glum with so many receiving threats in Philadelphia. With a shocking trade to Buffalo for cornerback Ronald Darby, the outlook for Matthews changed dramatically as the former second round pick from Vanderbilt will likely slide into the No.1 receiving slot for the Bills in 2017.

Expectations should still be tempered, as the Bills are a run-first team and Matthews does not have the game-breaking speed nor the downfield receiving skills of Sammy Watkins, the player whom he is replacing in the offense. But, Matthews owners should view this as an upgrade due to the fact that he will see an increase in volume.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Zay Jones out, Clay expected to play
Bills TE hasn't played since Week 5
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 10, 11:30 am

Buffalo Bills
Left tackle Cordy Glenn and wide receiver Zay Jones have been ruled out for the game because of injuries. Jones hurt his knee against the Jets and the rookie’s absence will open up more room for Kelvin Benjamin in the offense as Benjamin makes his Bills debut after last week’s trade with the Panthers. Tight end Charles Clay is questionable, although the signs have been positive about his return from a knee injury. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: The Bills should have their tight end back but will be missing WR Zay Jones. Benjamin and Jordan Matthews should be the main targets on the outside for Tyrod Taylor. Clay is a viable tight end streamer for those desperate for a warm body at the position.


Injury Jordan Matthews expected to play
Broken thumb
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 22, 7:35 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills WR Jordan Matthews (broken thumb) is expected to play today with a special glove vs. #Bucs, sources say. 2 wks earlier then expected. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Matthews broke his thumb in Week 4 so it's a bit of a surprise he has returned this early. He does give Tyrod Taylor some much needed help in a depleted receiving corps but Matthews has been nothing more than a WR5, having caught no more than 3 balls in any game this season.


Injury Jordan Matthews cleared to practice
Returning from thumb surgery
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 18, 11:00 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills WR Jordan Matthews took another step toward returning to the lineup on Wednesday. Just two weeks removed from thumb surgery, Matthews has been cleared to practice. “He’ll be day to day,” said head coach Sean McDermott. “He did get cleared to practice, so he will be out at practice. He’ll be listed as limited and we’ll just take it one day at a time at this point.” (BuffaloBills.com)

FFToday's Take: With only ten catches on the year, Jordan Matthews has been a non-factor for fantasy owners this season. The Bills do not offer much to fantasy owners in the passing game but Matthews' return to the field would be a step in the right direction.


Injury Jordan Matthews out at least a month
Thumb surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 2, 7:15 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills WR Jordan Matthews will undergo thumb surgery and is expected to miss at least a month. (Sal Capaccio on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The loss of Matthews depletes an already weak receiving corps. Zay Jones and Andre Holmes appear to be Tyrod Taylor's top targets on the outside, but it may TE Charles Clay who sees an increase in target share.
