The Eagles selected Matthews in the first round of the NFL draft and clearly have big plans for the big receiver out of Vanderbilt. At 6'3", 212 lbs. Matthews has intriguing size, but will not make his impact (at least initially) on the outside. The coaches plan on using Matthews inside, with Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper as the outside receivers. Long-term Matthews has the opportunity to be Nick Foles' top target, but fantasy owners need to be careful not to overestimate his impact in 2014. Zach Ertz and Darren Sproles also play their best in the same areas of the field, and Matthews isn't going to be on the field more than 50% of the time based on Chip Kelly's liberal use of different personnel groupings.
