49ers' Jordan Matthews: No receptions in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews did not receive a target in his lone appearance with San Francisco in 2019.

Matthews signed with the 49ers to help bolster a thin receiving unit, but he was unable to crack the 53-man roster until late in the season when he was active for just one contest. The 27-year-old experienced early success with Philadelphia when he was healthy enough to play, so he could earn another shot with a club as an unrestricted free agent in 2020.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Not active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Vikings.

The 27-year-old wide receiver has not been active for a game since signing with the 49ers toward the beginning of December.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Not playing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's matchup with the rams.

Matthews signed with the 49ers on Dec. 11 but didn't see game action in Week 15. There will likely need to be another injury within the receiving corps for the 27-year-old to receive a chance on gamedays.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Back with Niners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews signed with the 49ers on Wednesday.

Matthews suited up for the 49ers in Week 7 but was promptly cut, leading to a two-game stint with the Eagles. The 2014 second-round pick struggled with drops, however, hauling in four of 12 targets for 33 scoreless yards. Matthews will get another shot with the Niners, but he'll top out as a rotational wideout.

Jordan Matthews: Let go by Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews was waived by the Eagles on Monday.

Matthews received the start Sunday versus the Seahawks but caught only three of six targets for 27 yards, despite playing nearly every offensive snap. The 27-year-old also saw a heavy snap share Week 11 but had only one catch for six yards. Philadelphia scored a meager 19 points in those two contests, and the team apparently saw enough that it was willing to move on from the veteran wideout.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Likely to start Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews is expected to serve as one of the Eagles' starting receivers Sunday against the Seahawks with both Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) inactive for the contest, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

The Eagles haven't announced their starting lineup for Week 12, but Matthews (85 percent offensive snap share, one catch for six yards on six targets) and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (25 percent, one catch for 29 yards on one target) trailed only a healthy Agholor in terms of usage in the Week 11 loss to the Patriots. Though Matthews saw a big role right off the bat in his first game since re-signing with Philadelphia, Kaye notes that coach Doug Pederson didn't give the veteran a ringing endorsement for his performance against New England. Matthews will get a shot at redemption out of necessity, as the remaining options at receiver (Arcega-Whiteside, Mack Hollins and Greg Ward) have just 13 catches between them this season. While Matthews could garner a decent share of targets, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia speculates the Eagles will make ample use of 12 personnel (two tight ends), meaning that Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert may end up profiling as the team's top pass catchers.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Targeted six times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews caught one of his six targets for six yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to New England.

Despite being unable to connect much with Carson Wentz, Matthews saw the second-most targets among Eagles wide receivers behind only to Nelson Agholor's nine. Matthews also saw 64 snaps, twice what J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Mack Hollins managed combined. With Alshon Jeffery (ankle) uncertain for Week 12 against the Seahawks, Matthews could see a similar workload for at least another game.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Deemed active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

With Alshon Jeffery (ankle) out of the lineup, his 6.9 targets per game are up for grabs. Having said that, the quartet of Nelson Agholor, Matthews, Mack Hollins and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside don't exactly inspire confidence. Matthews himself has logged just three offensive snaps this season in one appearance with the 49ers. In his previous stint with the Eagles last year, he hauled in 20 of 28 targets for 300 yards and two TDs in 14 contests.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Could have instant role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews could have an immediate role in the Philadelphia offense, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

The Eagles officially announced his signing Monday morning, after Matthews agreed to rejoin the team last week. It will be his third stint in Philadelphia, with the most recent being 14 games last season, in which he brought in 20 catches for 300 yards and two TDs on 28 targets. Matthews played just three snaps during his time with the 49ers earlier this year, but he could have a top-three role for the Eagles, considering Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside all rank among the least productive WRs in the league on a per-snap basis. Matthews' versatility and familiarity with the offense could take outside snaps from Hollins and Arcega-Whiteside, or slot work from Agholor.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Back in Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews agreed to a contract with the Eagles on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

After impressing during his workout for the team Tuesday, Matthews will reunite with the club that selected him in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. It'll be the third stint in Philadelphia for Matthews, who hasn't found much success since ending his first tour with the Eagles following the 2016 season. With DeSean Jackson (abdomen) on injured reserve and Alshon Jeffery nursing an ankle injury, Matthews may be able to find meaningful work in three-receiver formations right away if the Eagles aren't keen on giving more chances to Mack Hollins and/or J.J. Arcega-Whiteside.

Jordan Matthews: Works out for Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews worked out for Philadelphia on Tuesday, Tim McManus of reports.

Matthews was cut by the 49ers just over a week ago and is looking to return to familiar territory in Philadelphia, where he has played four of his six pro seasons. If the two sides reach an agreement, there is a good chance the 27-year-old can immediately slot into the starting lineup with DeSean Jackson (abdomen) out and Mack Hollins not producing.

Jordan Matthews: Sent packing by Niners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers cut Matthews on Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

The 49ers traded for Emmanuel Sanders from the Broncos earlier in the week, so Matthews' additional wideout depth is no longer necessary. Matthews is just three seasons removed form a 73-reception, 804-yard season with the Eagles, so he has a good shot to land a roster spot soon.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Healthy scratch again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (coach's decision) remains inactive for Sunday's Week 6 tilt against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of reports.

The veteran receiver is apparently still in the process of mastering the 49ers' playbook, keeping him in street clothes for at least one more week.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Expected to be inactive again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (coach's decision) is expected to remain inactive Sunday against the Rams, Cam Inman of the East Bay Times reports.

Matthews signed with San Francisco during the team's Week 4 bye, but it appears he's still familiarizing himself with the playbook at this point.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Inactive Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (coach's decision) will be inactive against the Browns on Monday.

Matthews signed with the 49ers during their bye week. He is replacing Jalen Hurd (back) in the receiving corps. While the 27-year-old sports a decent resume, he is likely going to have to earn his way into a bigger role going forward.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Joins 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers signed Matthews to a contract Thursday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Matthews is in line to replace rookie Jalen Hurd (back) -- who's headed to injured reserve -- on the 49ers' 53-man roster. The 27-year-old wideout boasts a decent resume and could have limited fantasy value in deep formats, but it's difficult to imagine him becoming a reliable weekly option out of the gate.

Jordan Matthews: Tries out with Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews worked out with the Vikings on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Vikings have just four healthy receivers led by Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, so they need the depth. Matthews has a decent history track record in the league, and he last played with the Eagles in 2018, hauling in 20 of 28 targets for 300 yards and two touchdowns. Matthews could have some fantasy upside in very deep formats if he's able to secure a roster spot.

Jordan Matthews: Let go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews was released by the 49ers on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering the 49ers' depth at wide receiver and the lack of guaranteed money ($300,000) attributed to Matthews' one-year contract. After two consecutive dismal seasons with the Bills and Eagles, respectively, it's unclear how much of a market the 27-year-old will have. It's also possible the 49ers could wind up bringing back Matthews at some point during the regular season, particularly since Dante Pettis (groin), Jalen Hurd (back) and Trent Taylor (foot) have all missed time throughout the preseason with various injuries.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Battling for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews suited up but did not receive a target in Thursday's preseason finale against the Chargers.

While Matthews didn't receive a target, he was used as a gunner on special teams, a role he hasn't had to serve in the NFL yet, but one he understands could help his chances to secure a spot on the 53-man roster. The 27-year-old has only tallied three catches for 45 yards this preseason, but head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that his low volume is not a problem because the veteran is a "known quantity," according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. Matthews appears to be competing with Kendrick Bourne for one of the final receiving spots on the depth chart, but both could theoretically be kept if some combination Dante Pettis (groin), Jalen Hurd (back) and Trent Taylor (foot) are unable to heal up prior to the start of the regular season.

49ers' Jordan Matthews: Looking good for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews left coach Kyle Shanahan with a good impression after training camp, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. "[Matthews] had a hell of a camp," Shanahan said. "He was very consistent in OTAs and training camp. I've got a lot of confidence in Jordan and know we can win with him"

It sounds like Matthews is on track for a roster spot, earning serious praise from Shanahan after working with the first-team offense in Monday's preseason win over Denver. The 49ers entered camp with eight viable candidates for jobs at wide receiver, but the competition eases up a bit with Trent Taylor (foot) looking doubtful for the start of the regular season. Matthews and Deebo Samuel may be battling for the No. 3 job behind Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin, though it's also possible Shanahan deploys a deeper rotation to keep a bunch of wide receivers involved. It'll be tough to get an exact read on the plan before Week 1.
