WR - SF
Week 7 Outlook
The San Fransico 49ers signed TE Jordan Matthews Friday, according to Mike Garafolo. Matthews attended a tryout for the New York Jets earlier in the day, according to Tom Pelissero.
The WR-turned-TE appeared in two games for the 49ers last season. Matthews did not record any stats. He appeared solely on special teams in his first game and appeared on just 14 plays on offense, in addition to special teams, in his second.
WR/TE Jordan Matthews attended a tryout with the Jets.
Matthews will likely be nothing more than a camp body. Though he could sneak his way onto the roster as a TE if he proves to have anything left in the tank. Once a productive player, Matthews hasn’t done much for fantasy purposes since 2016. He can be left on waivers even in the deepest of leagues.
Former Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews has been working out as a tight end at various camps after gaining 15 pounds of muscle and will work out for scouts at the HUB camp this weekend, per Ian Rapoport.
Matthews has not seen the field since being signed by the San Francisco 49ers mid-way through the 2019 season. The 28-year old wideout's first three seasons in the league with the Eagles were phenomenal, as he saw 100+ targets in each season and scored a total of 19 touchdowns. He could quickly become an asset at tight end for a team in need but will first need to work out in front of scouts at the upcoming HUB camp this weekend.
