Matthews ranked second on the team with eight targets. He had a bad drop early, but took a bubble screen 10 yards for a touchdown late in the third quarter. In the fourth, Matthews went high for a 40-yard grab over the middle.
Up to six touchdowns, Matthews plays the Titans in Week 12.
One week after his massive 138-yard, two-touchdown showing, Matthews was once again Mark Sanchez's top option in the passing game. He hauled in five of eight passes for 107 yards and a touchdown, a 10-yard score in the third quarter when the game was already well out of hand.
Matthews , who had 313 yards in Nick Foles' eight starts, has 245 and three touchdowns in two games with Sanchez. More impressively, he has four touchdowns in 11 quarters playing with Sanchez, after having just two with Foles. The Foles injury might not be great news for the team as a whole, but it has certainly benefitted Matthews, who looks like he could be a useful Fantasy option down the stretch.
Matthews caught four passes on Philly's 91-yard touchdown drive to start the second quarter, capping it with a 13-yard score. In the fourth quarter he got wide open on a blitz and spun away from two defenders for an 18-yard touchdown.

The problem for Cooper and Matthews is that Foles won't throw for 411 yards on 62 attempts every week. In all likelihood, he won't achieve either of those high marks again this season.
So really, neither player's value changes in Fantasy. They were simply the beneficiaries of an anomalous performance by their quarterback.
