Here we are. Back to the Falcons vs. Eagles game on Monday night — and for good reason too.
For starters, how about that Eagles offense in the preseason? In particularly, quarterback Sam Bradford? It’s no secret that Chip Kelly’s system in Philly is known for producing stellar fantasy football numbers no matter who is on the field. This season, it seems as though the plan that Kelly began to lay when he originally took the Eagles job, is starting to come to fruition.
So, who is the No. 1 wideout in this potent Eagles offense again? Oh yeah, that’s right — it’s Jordan Matthews.
Matthews, 23, also had an impressive preseason with a few highlight-reel catches himself. Furthermore, he is going against an Atlanta defense that gave up more yards to wide receivers than any other in 2014.
