Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Praise from Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mathews and teammate Darren Sproles are being pegged as the Eagles' primary running backs following the trade of DeMarco Murray, Philly.com reports.

Mathews' future with the Eagles was somewhat uncertain earlier this week, but after Murray was traded, executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman expressed confidence in Mathews and Sproles as the team's top two runners. In 13 games last season, Mathews rushed for 539 yards and six touchdowns, averaging a career-best 5.1 yards per carry along the way. While the Eagles could certainly add another running back in the upcoming draft, it appears Mathews could be their primary ball-carrier this season, according to Roseman and coach Doug Pederson's recent comments.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Had surgery on groin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan Mathews recently had groin surgery, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Mathews originally hurt his groin in late October, but a bye week allowed him to avoid any absences. He later missed three games because of a concussion, and he was also listed on the injury report with the groin issue until Week 14. Despite his absence from the report, this may help to explain why Mathews only had 11 touches over the final two weeks, with DeMarco Murray notably re-emerging in a key role for the regular-season finale. Mathews should be healthy before the start of training camp, but he'll likely have to compete with Murray for carries again.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Muted in season-ending win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan Mathews carried the ball four times for 11 yards and caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's 35-30 loss to the Giants.

Mathews' midseason renaissance came to an abrupt halt in the final two weeks of the season, when fellow running back DeMarco Murray was re-installed as the team's No. 1 rushing option. Mathews' status heading into next season is shaky, and will depend largely on how the Philadelphia Eagles ' next head coach views his weapons at the running back position.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Scores in limited action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan Mathews rushed four times for five yards and a touchdown during Saturday's loss to Washington. He also caught two of three targets for 13 receiving yards.

The Philadelphia Eagles split up their backfield touches fairly evenly, as DeMarco Murray rushed five times for 27 yards and a touchdown and Darren Sproles rushed five times for nine yards, though the latter also added seven catches for 56 receiving yards. With all three backs healthy, it's tough to see one of them breaking out in any meaningful way, which obviously limits their fantasy upsides.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Runs for 58 yards but loses fumble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan Mathews had 11 carries for 58 yards and one catch (on two targets) for three yards in Sunday's 40-17 loss to the Cardinals.

Mathews did have a couple of nice carries along the way, but his night was ultimately defined by a soft fumble and failed fourth-down conversion. He mostly split work with Darren Sproles, as DeMarco Murray got just two carries (for three yards) and wasn't targeted. Sproles also had a rough night, gaining just nine yards on six carries and 16 yards on three receptions (four targets). There's some chance Murray could be more involved in Week 16 against the Redskins, but it's increasingly evident that the Philadelphia Eagles are better off leaning on the Mathews-Sproles combination. Even if he won't admit it, head coach Chip Kelly seems to have arrived at the same conclusion, making Mathews the clear favorite to lead the Eagles in Week 16 carries.
