Matthews caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys.
Matthews played just 11 snaps in this one and now has failed to surpass 14 in three of the last four weeks. He has just two catches for 10 yards over his last three games, although one was for a touchdown, and this week's was also a red-zone target. To play him on the road Week 15 against the Rams is to hope for another score and little more.
Matthews caught one of two targets for a four-yard touchdown in Monday night's 28-13 defeat of Washington.
Matthews caught a short pass on the second play of the fourth quarter and tumbled into the end zone for his first touchdown since Week 4. His 21 snaps in the contest represent a 50-percent increase over his past two games, but the 26-year-old still finished a distant fourth amongst receivers in terms of playing time. He remains a deep-league desperation play heading into a Week 14 matchup at Dallas.
Matthews failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Giants.
Matthews played only 14 of 65 offensive snaps, firmly finishing fourth among Eagles wide receivers. The 26-year-old has seen 14 offensive snaps each of the last two weeks, as the acquisition of Golden Tate has unsurprisingly cut into his already limited opportunities. Matthews did see more snaps than Tate in his first game with the team against the Cowboys, but is now clearly the No. 4 option on the depth chart.
Matthews caught three of four targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 48-7 loss to the Saints.
Matthews' first target came on a deep ball that fell incomplete on the Eagles' opening drive, but he'd haul in one per quarter after that. On a down day for the Eagles, Matthews still managed his typical production and now has three catches and 40 yards or fewer in back-to-back games. The good news for the 26-year-old and his fantasy owners is that starter Nelson Agholor did not make a catch in the contest on just two targets, so perhaps the fifth-year receiver will earn more playing time going forward, starting with a divisional matchup at home against the Giants in Week 12.
Matthews played 37 of 62 snaps (60 percent) on offense in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Dallas, catching three of three targets for 40 yards, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Matthews held on to the No. 3 receiver job for at least one more week, as coach Doug Pederson wasn't comfortable using Golden Tate (18 snaps) when the Eagles went uptempo. It's only a matter of time before Matthews fall back to the fourth spot at wide receiver -- quite possibly as soon as Week 11 at New Orleans.
