Most automatically assume that the move to Buffalo means good things for Matthews' fantasy stock. Well that depends on how you look at it. Matthews was a top-24 receiver in two of his first three seasons with the Eagles, so I wouldn't say upgrade from that. In fact, it'll be hard for him to post WR3 numbers in such a low volume offense. He'd need to score touchdowns, which is something his new teammate Anquan Boldin knows how to do fairly well. Tyrod Taylor has only thrown 37 touchdowns the last two seasons combined, making it unlikely Matthews gets into the top 30 wide receivers in 2017.

Jordan Matthews expects to be back Week 1

Jordan Matthews told reporters that he's "confident" he'll be back for Week 1 of the regular season. Matthews is dealing with a chip fracture in his sternum.

Fantasy Impact

While this is the goal, Matthews continues to deal with pain in his chest and during upper-body movements given the injury. Matthews' fantasy outlook received a boost with the retirement of Anquan Boldin, though his ceiling may still be capped by the Bills' offense in general.
