Matthews is week-to-week with a chip fracture in his sternum.

Summary

Matthews is who we thought he was. In three seasons, Matthews has emerged as a good-but-not-great receiver. The 6'3", 212-pounder looks like Terrell Owens but plays like Wes Welker. Now he will be one of the primary receivers in Buffalo, a lower tier pass offense. His target load might be higher than it was going to be in Philadelphia, but it is difficult to see Matthews as a consistent fantasy starter getting on the Bills this late in the game. (August 11)

Bills | Jordan Matthews on track for opener (Tue Aug 22, 11:32 AM) - Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) is on schedule for Week 1, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Bills | Jordan Matthews unsure about preseason games (Mon Aug 21, 08:22 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) said he is not sure if he will play in any preseason games because he needs to be smart about his injury but is optimistic about his availability for Week 1.

Our View: Matthews discussed how dealing with this injury has a lot to do with pain management. We'll see if he can be ready (enough) for Week 1. With Anquan Boldin retired and Sammy Watkins traded away, the Bills need all the help they can get at the WR position.

Bills | Jordan Matthews gets in individual work (Sun Aug 20, 02:51 PM) - Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) was spotted in a helmet but was not in pads Sunday, Aug. 20, catching passes with the rest of his position group during individual work, according to WGR Sport Radio 550's Sal Capaccio.

Our View: Matthews will be limited for a bit as he recovers from a chest injury. The fit with the Bills pass offense isn't great and his fantasy value is dropping by the day.

Bills | Jordan Matthews week to week (Mon Aug 14, 08:21 AM) - Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) has a chip fracture in his sternum, and the team is calling his status 'week to week.'

Our View: Bad news for Matthews here. He suffered this injury on the first day of practice with his new team, and now Matthews is no lock for the start of the regular season. With Sammy Watkins (Rams) traded away, we might see rookie Zay Jones open the year as the top target in the Bills passing attack.
