Summary

Good things come to those who wait. A season ago, Ryan Mathews was looking for a new home and was set to sign in Philadelphia as LeSean McCoy's replacement. Then Chip Kelly made the shocking move to sign DeMarco Murray to a monster deal, which initially caused Mathews' camp to balk. Days later Mathews surprised everyone by opting to take the deal in Philadelphia, even though it would be in a complementary role. Fast forward to the start of this season and Mathews' decision appears prescient. Chip Kelly is gone. DeMarco Murray is gone. And the depth chart is relatively underwhemling behind Mathews. As long as he can stay healthy, 7th year pro is in line for his best season since running for 1,255 yards in 2013 (with San Diego). Mathews is a well rounded back and the new offense is predicated on a workhorse runner. The stars are aligned for Mathews and he's a compelling high upside choice as your RB2/RB3 on draft day.

Eagles | Ryan Mathews sitting out (Tue May 24, 10:47 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (illness) is out of practice Tuesday, May 24, due to illness.

Our View: Mathews should be back soon for the Eagles. Injuries are a concern with the talented veteran, but missing practice on Tuesday is not a big deal. If healthy, Mathews can perform like a low-end RB2. His current ADP is RB26 (6.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
