Eagles address WR need with Jordan Matthews
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Eagles needed a receiver with DeSean Jackson gone, and they addressed the position by drafting Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews in the second round.

Matthews will likely be No. 3 on the depth chart behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, and he will have minimal Fantasy value in 2014. He should, however, help Nick Foles and the Eagles offense.

Matthews is a good receiver, but he's not a burner, which the Eagles will miss with Jackson gone. Still, this receiving corps is starting to look solid with Maclin, Cooper, Matthews, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles.

It should only help Folk, who depended heavily on Jackson last year. He's still a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, but he's a great one to wait for with a late-round pick.

As for Matthews, he's only worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, and he's a solid second-round pick in rookie-only formats.

Eagles will be OK even without DeSean Jackson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Eagles lost DeSean Jackson this offseason, and Fantasy owners are concerned their offense could struggle without a deep threat down the field. It's possible, but there's still plenty of talent for Fantasy owners to tap into even though Jackson is gone.

For an in-depth look at some of the top Eagles players -- Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Zach Ertz -- check out this blog I wrote in looking at their preseason outlooks. A lot can change between now and the start of the season, but here is one view on the Eagles heading into this year.

Nick Foles confident in DeSean-less receiving corps
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles knows that losing DeSean Jackson is big for an offense that relies on speedy gamebreakers. But he expressed confidence in the remaining receivers, including Jeremy Maclin -- whom he referred to as a "top tier" receiver -- and Arrelious Benn, who missed last season with a torn ACL. 

"The Philadelphia Eagles were built on a team atmosphere," he told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "We're built as a team, we had success as a team. We have a great core group of guys, and we have good additions."

Foles didn't sweat questions about his contract status -- he's due to make just over $600,000 this season, low for a Pro Bowl quarterback. He also told reporters he wasn't changing just because he was entering training camp as the starter.

Kelly: Nick Foles has chance to improve in Year 2
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said at the NFL owners meeting that quarterback Nick Foles has the chance to improve in 2014.

Foles started 10 games for the Eagles in 2013 and completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,891 yards, 27 touchdowns and two interceptions and ran for 225 yards and three touchdowns. He loses receiver DeSean Jackson, but Kelly said Foles is still expecting to take a step forward in his production this season.

"That's the one thing about Nick that is so encouraging. He always wants to get better," Kelly said. "He constantly improved as the season went along. You'll see a lot of players plateau. But I think he continued to improve. We're all hopeful. But knowing his work ethic, I think in Year 2 he's going to do a lot of improving."

While Foles lost Jackson, he still has Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin back, as well as the addition of Darren Sproles via trade.

Nick Foles will miss DeSean Jackson
by Larry Hartstein |

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles lost his favorite target when the team released DeSean Jackson. According to ESPN, Foles targeted Jackson more than any other receiver (70 times) last season and completed 71.4 percent of those passes to him.

In addition, quarterbacks throwing to Jackson posted a 124.4 passer rating last year -- highest of any wideout.

While Foles is losing Jackson, he'll get receiver Jeremy Maclin back from a knee injury.
