Huddle Up: Matthews could be worth a waiver claim in deeper leagues, but he's mostly a watch list player right now.
Posted: 9/18/2018 12:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Alshon Jeffery hasn't played yet this year, and Mike Wallace is done for the season with a broken leg, so the Eagles may turn to Matthews, a 2014 second-round pick who was traded to the Bills in the offseason a year ago. Matthews caught eight TDs in each of his 2014 and '15 seasons with Philly, but those obviously were different teams and seasons, and he's since disappointed with the Bills (25 catches in 10 games last year) and been waived by the Patriots. Matthews would be nothing more than a speculative deep-league fantasy add even if he does return to Philly.

Huddle Up: Matthews could find a new team once he recovers from his injury but probably should be avoided in fantasy leagues until he plays in a game or two.
Posted: 8/1/2018 2:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews is on a one-year deal, so if he can return before the end of the season the team would do an injury settlement so he can sign elsewhere. Either way, his fantasy appeal is shot for 2018.
Posted: 8/1/2018 9:56am ET
Huddle Up: Stick a fork in his fantasy value for now, but don't completely write him off. He could heal up and help someone later in the year. The Pats have been pursuing Eric Decker, and he could be the benefactor here.
Posted: 8/1/2018 8:02am ET
Huddle Up: Ugh. Matthews' fantasy value continues to act like a fish out of water. At this point, he's a WR5 without a lot of pizzazz.
Posted: 8/1/2018 6:58am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews is worth monitoring for a late-round flier because he still has the potential to be a WR3 in fantasy.
Posted: 7/29/2018 3:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Matthews will have to miss any games. He has a chance to have a solid role in the passing game with Julian Edelman out for the first four games of the season. Matthews could be a late-round option in deeper leagues depending on his role.
Posted: 7/18/2018 6:35am ET
Huddle Up: It seems trivial to even consider him not making a depleted roster with a suspended Julian Edelman, but Matthews' fantasy stock has plummeted. He just turned 26 and still has the potential to be a WR3 in fantasy at a WR4 or WR5 price.
Posted: 4/9/2018 8:09am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews' basement appears to be as a WR5, but if he can acclimate himself this offseason there's no reason he can't reach the WR3 area again.
Posted: 4/5/2018 5:22pm ET
Huddle Up: The Patriots have lost a few receivers this offseason, so Matthews has a chance to have a solid role in the passing game in 2018. He probably will not be a weekly starting option for fantasy owners next season but could be a No. 5 receiver on rosters.
Posted: 4/2/2018 2:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews' main issue over his last two years has been staying healthy. He played only 10 games in his first season with the Buffalo Bills last year. He'll be merely a late-round dart throw wherever he lands.
Posted: 3/22/2018 3:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but could be a replacement for Jordy Nelson if he signs with the Packers. He probably will be a late-round option in fantasy leagues next season but would have some decent value if he plays with Aaron Rodgers.
Posted: 3/16/2018 5:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews had a disappointing and injury-marred season in Buffalo in 2017. He is looking to resurrect his career, and could be a nice addition in Arizona as they look to replace John Brown.
Posted: 12/14/2017 6:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews will head to free agency after a forgettable season, and he will need to land in the right offense to have much fantasy appeal.
Posted: 12/5/2017 1:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews' season to forget mercifully comes to a conclusion. He hasn't been able to stay healthy and didn't produce much when he was healthy. For the rest of the season, Zay Jones and Deonte Thompson have the most relevance in Buffalo's receiving corps, but they shouldn't be started on playoff squads.
Posted: 12/3/2017 1:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has been a disaster in his first season in Buffalo, and the shaky quarterback play lately hasn't helped him turn a corner. He is nothing more than a WR5 in the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Posted: 12/3/2017 9:14am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season. He has posted at least 50 yards only twice this season and has only been targeted five times over the last two weeks. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.
Posted: 12/1/2017 4:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has a good chance to play this week, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. He will be facing an improved New England Patriots defense and can be avoided in most leagues.
Posted: 11/30/2017 12:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews is working through a knee injury and has been held to only 29 yards in his last two games. He probably will be active for the team's Week 13 game, but owners in all leagues can avoid him against the New England Patriots.
Posted: 11/29/2017 1:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has been a huge disappointment in his first season in Buffalo and should only be considered as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams when healthy.
Posted: 11/26/2017 2:37pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has been held to under 20 yards in four of his last six games and has only one touchdown on the season. He should be avoided in all leagues until he can produce better numbers.
Posted: 11/26/2017 8:54am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews likely will receive as the top receiver for the Bills this week and could have some success with Tyrod Taylor back in the lineup. Owners in most leagues probably have better options available and can bench him.
Posted: 11/25/2017 8:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Buffalo's passing attack is one of the worst in the league, and Matthews has just 253 receiving yards on the season. There is no reason he should be starting in Week 12.
Posted: 11/24/2017 12:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews did not play last week because of the injury, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. He has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and probably can be avoided even if he plays.
Posted: 11/23/2017 1:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews did not play last week but may have a better chance to play in Week 12. He has been held to 21 yards or less in four of the last five games and would not be a strong fantasy option if he plays in the game.
Posted: 11/22/2017 2:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews missed last weekend's game and his status for Week 12 is uncertain. He has been a huge disappointment in his first season in Buffalo and his fantasy value is limited to the deepest of leagues at this juncture, especially after the addition of Kelvin Benjamin.
Posted: 11/19/2017 5:27am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He only has 22 catches through eight games this season and has picked up more than 21 receiving yards just once in his last five contests, so fantasy owners should be able to find better options.
Posted: 11/17/2017 2:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews probably has a solid chance to play this week, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. He will be working with a new quarterback and can be benched this week since he has been disappointing over the last few weeks.
Posted: 11/16/2017 12:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews probably will be able to play this week, but owners should check on his status later in the week to make sure. He will be working with a new quarterback in Week 11, which may hurt his fantasy value. He has been held to under 25 yards in four of the last five games and may only be a flex option in leagues.
Posted: 11/15/2017 3:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has been a huge disappointment in Buffalo so far, and his fantasy outlook is rather murky with Nathan Peterman taking over under center for the benched Tyrod Taylor.
Posted: 11/2/2017 9:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Make it four straight games of fewer than eight yards per catch for Matthews, who hasn't had the kind of impact the Bills hoped for. It's possible the arrival of Kelvin Benjamin will open up room for Matthews to operate, but until he actually puts up some decent numbers in a game he should remain glued to your bench.
Posted: 10/29/2017 2:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has really struggled in his time in Buffalo so far, posting just seven grabs for 41 yards over his past three outings. At this point he is best used as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Bills travel to face the Jets in Week 9 on Thursday. Matthews had a season-high 61 yards in Week 1 against New York.
Posted: 10/22/2017 6:03am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a full practice participant Friday, Oct. 20, after being a limited participant in the team's two earlier sessions during the week. Given the matchup, he's worthy of consideration as a WR3 or flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/19/2017 12:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews appears to have a chance to play in Week 7 and probably will be a game-time decision. He probably would be a starter for the Bills if he plays, but his injury could affect his ability to catch the ball. Owners may want to use Matthews a flex option or could bench him if they have better options.
Posted: 10/19/2017 11:16am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews could be a game-time decision for Week 7, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. He probably will be a starter for the Bills if he is able to play but may be a flex option in deeper leagues this week.
Posted: 10/19/2017 9:20am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews isn't a lock as a starting option in fantasy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If you need to cover multiple bye weeks, maybe, but the upside isn't real high until we see the rust is knocked off.
Posted: 10/18/2017 3:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to check later in the week to see if Matthews has any chance to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will need to show that he can catch passes with his injured thumb. Owners may want to wait a week before considering Matthews as a starting option.
Posted: 10/18/2017 1:35pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has been cleared to play, but it's still uncertain if he'll suit up to face the Buccaneers in Week 7. Give him at least a game or two to knock off any rust before trusting him again as a WR4 or flex option.
Posted: 10/18/2017 7:19am ET
Huddle Up: Matthews is iffy to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. If he's good to go, he's in the flex mix.
Posted: 10/16/2017 7:39am ET
Huddle Up: He'll be a flex option against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week if he's able to go.
Posted: 10/2/2017 5:29am ET
Huddle Up: Andre Holmes will likely fill the starting spot, and he could be worth a WR5 pickup to cover a bye week. Zay Jones could also see increased targets as a WR5.
Posted: 10/1/2017 4:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews suffered a thumb injury during the game and was unable to return. His status for Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals is not yet known. Zay Jones and Andre Holmes would likely pick up the slack of Matthews is forced to miss time.
Posted: 10/1/2017 12:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Matthews has been a solid option for the Bills in the passing game, but a thumb injury could affect his ability to catch the pass. Owners should look for an update on his status after the game.
Posted: 9/24/2017 2:58pm ET
Huddle Up: Slowly, but surely, Matthews is starting develop a rapport with Tyrod Taylor. He has been targeted 11 times through three games while posting eight receptions for 152 yards. He has a ways to go before he is a fantasy regular again, but he isn't a terrible WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 at Atlanta.
Posted: 9/22/2017 8:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Through two games, Matthews is leading the team in receiving with just 91 yards. The Bills are a run-first team to the extreme, and none of Buffalo's receivers are worth starting in Week 3 against the stingy secondary of the Denver Broncos.
