2015 Outlook: Fantasy HandcuffLast updated on Nov-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/20): Mathews appears to be the obvious better fit in Philadelphia, however he doesn't see the opportunities he probably should. This is because DeMarco Murray makes a lot of money. That's one of many reasons why the Eagles' offense isn't any good. He would have value if Murray gets injured again.
Heath has always been an issue for Mathews. He has two 1,000-yard seasons on his resume, but he has missed 20 games in five years. Last season, Ryan played only six games due a sprained MCL in his right knee and a sprained right ankle. Ryan didn't have more than 17 touches in any game and saw his receptions total plummet to nine. Mathews' value as a receiver has declined every year since the start of 2012. Mathews has 24 career TDs in 60 games. He is the clear No. 2 RB here and may get 8-10 touches per game. Barring an injury to Murray, Mathews won't have a ton of Fantasy value. But as the 41st RB coming off draft boards on average, he should be easy to roster as a valuable handcuff.

|10.06||Team Hallam - After Murray's workload and history, an injury is likely. That means Mathews could be in line as an RB1 or 2 by midseason (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 10:34:07 p.m. ET 2015)|
