Monday Night Wrap-Up: Week 2

The Stock Watch


Jordan Matthews (WR, Phi) – Matthews’ big night in Chicago – 6 catches for 71 yards on 9 targets – could have been much bigger if he hauled in a near-perfect throw from Carson Wentz at the end of the first half, which would have resulted in a long TD and made Wentz’s impressive game look even better. Drops have been an issue for Matthews throughout his career, but it’s very evident that he has the trust of Wentz as the young QB’s #1 receiver. With 22 targets through the first two games of the season, Matthews is tied for 4th among all WRs. He’s a couple of drops away from being one of the top fantasy scorers too – he’s already 13th in total points, but would be top-5 had he hauled in that long catch. At this point, Wentz has been better than could have reasonably been expected, and Matthews is taking to Philly’s new offense very well – he’s lining up both inside and outside, and is winning. He’s a weekly start until further notice, especially in PPR.
