ESPN Boston reports Jordan Matthews has made a good first impression with the Patriots.
Per ESPN's Mike Reiss, Matthews is "usually one of the first players on the field at practice each day." Reiss believes that if Matthews doesn't "emerge" it won't be for "lack of effort." Matthews' odds of making the 53-man roster have increased exponentially with Julian Edelman's pending four-game PED ban, though he still faces obstacles. Matthews' $170,000 guaranteed is a meager sum, while his health has derailed his career in recent years. Were Matthews to have a strong camp and make the team, he could be a sneaky WR4 in fantasy.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Bills coach Sean McDermott is "optimistic" Charles Clay (questionable, knee) and Jordan Matthews (questionable, knee) will play Week 11 against the Chargers.

He and Matthews will be game-time decisions, though the early indication is that both will be ready for Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff in Los Angeles. Clay looked rusty in his return from knee surgery last week, delivering just two catches for 13 yards in a blowout loss to New Orleans. He'll be little more than a last-gasp TE2 if he suits up.

Jordan Matthews' trade to Buffalo should open up slot duties for Nelson Agholor.

With Matthews headed to the Bills, the Eagles are now missing 117 targets from last year. That's good news for Agholor, who should slide in as Philadelphia's primary slot receiver. The former first-round pick has been a bust to this point in his career, but Agholor has shown well in camp and could finally be headed for a breakout season. Matthews' departure will also open up more targets for tight end Zach Ertz, who is now a no-brainer TE1 in all formats.

Speaking Monday, Eagles OC Frank Reich left the door open for Jordan Matthews to lose snaps to Nelson Agholor.

Reich said the team's plan at slot receiver is "a little bit different than last year." "Every spot's up for competition," Reich said. "... Nelson's had a real strong spring and camp, so the way we do it is kind of by play. Sometimes we'll switch guys up." Reich added that Agholor has "gotten over the hump" and is "making a ton of plays out there." Following Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith's signings, Matthews' fantasy appeal is dwindling with more competition for targets and snaps.
