Jordan Matthews caught 3-of-3 targets for 30 yards in the Bills' Week 2 loss to the Panthers.
Matthews now has five catches for 91 yards on six targets through two games as a Bill. His target floor should eventually be higher than three, but there's vanishingly-little ceiling to be had in this offense. Sep 17 - 7:13 PM

Jordan Matthews caught 2-of-3 passes for 61 yards in Week 1 against the Jets.

Matthews did most of his damage on a 47-yard catch. He was targeted behind Charles Clay and LeSean McCoy, but outplayed Zay Jones (one catch). Matthews should have a bigger role as he get more acclimated moving forward. He's a low-end WR3.
Sep 10 - 4:54 PM

Jordan Matthews (knee) is officially active for Week 1 against the Jets.

Matthews had a limited training camp, but his status wasn't in doubt after practicing fully this week. He'll start opposite Zay Jones and is the favorite for targets. Buffalo's inactives are WR Kaelin Clay, TE Khari Lee, OG Vladimir Ducasse, OT Conor McDermott, DL Jerel Worthy, CB Greg Mabin, and LB Tanner Vallejo.

Jordan Matthews (chest) is practicing in full for Week 1.

This puts J-Matt on track to suit up Sunday against the Jets. Matthews has an excellent chance to lead the Bills in targets this year, though we'd expect Buffalo to use a run-heavy scheme featuring workhorse LeSean McCoy.
Sep 6 - 4:10 PM

Coach Sean McDermott said he expects Jordan Matthews (chest) to start Week 1 against the Jets.

Matthews hasn't gotten many reps with his new team after suffering a chip fracture in his sternum in his first practice after the trade. While Matthews is expected to start and be active, it's hard to get behind him as a fantasy start with a lack of practice time with Tyrod Taylor. Zay Jones is the preferred play in this pass offense while LeSean McCoy dominates the touches.
Sep 6 - 9:45 AM

Jordan Matthews (chest) has still not been fully cleared.

Coach Sean McDermott said the receiver is headed that way, but it has yet to happen. Injured in his first practice with the Bills, Matthews does not seem like a lock to play in the season opener and should have a limited role regardless. He should eventually settle in as the No. 1 receiver, but it may not happen for a few weeks.
Sep 4 - 10:04 AM

Jordan Matthews (chest) expects to be ready for Week 1.

"I’m doing everything. I’m in shape," Matthews said Tuesday. Matthews has been limited to individual drills, but should return to full practice next week.
Aug 29 - 2:42 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said he is "cautiously optimistic" Jordan Matthews (chest) will be ready Week 1.

Matthews has yet to return to a full practice, but signs point to him being healthy for the season opener. Whether he is ready for a full role is another question after he was injured in his first full practice with the Bills. Rookie Zay Jones could end up being the best fantasy option early in the season.

Jordan Matthews (chest) is not expected to play in Buffalo's third preseason game.

Matthews is close to fully healthy, but the Bills don't want to risk a setback. The missed snaps are a concern to his early-season timing with Tyrod Taylor. Matthews remains on track for Week 1.
Aug 25 - 5:11 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Jordan Matthews (chest) is "making great progress."

Matthews is not going to play in the third preseason game, but he participated in individual drills on Wednesday and has been working after practice with the quarterbacks in an effort to catch up. He is clearly on track for Week 1.
Aug 24 - 10:35 AM

Jordan Matthews (chest) returned to individual drills on Wednesday.

Matthews has been out a little over a week after suffering a "chip fracture" in his sternum in his first practice with the team. He probably won't play in the third preseason game, but this puts Matthews well on track for Week 1.
Aug 23 - 1:16 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Jordan Matthews (chest) is expected to be ready Week 1.

After getting in limited work on Sunday, Matthews also expressed confidence he will be ready. Considering he was hurt during his first practice with the team, there is reason to worry about how integrated Matthews will be in the offense come Week 1, but Anquan Boldin's retirement means he should have the slot role all to himself. Despite the injury, Matthews is a value pick at his current 10th-round ADP.

Jordan Matthews (chest) said he is "confident" he will be ready Week 1.

Matthews was able to get in extremely limited work during Sunday's practice, but he said any type of "upper body" movement even as limited as pumping his arms while running results in pain. Still, he expects the injury to clear up before Week 1. "It’s more pain management," Matthews said. "Let’s get the pain down and get all functional movement back and then when it’s just that one spot hurting, let’s protect that spot and go play football." With Anquan Boldin gone, Matthews should be Buffalo's main target from the slot.
Aug 21 - 8:37 AM

Jordan Matthews (chest) caught passes during individual drills at Sunday's practice.

He had a helmet on but wasn't wearing pads. Matthews suffered a chip fracture in his sternum at his first Bills practice last Sunday but is already on the mend. The Bills are going to take things slow with Matthews but it looks like the slot receiver will be ready for Week 1.
Aug 20 - 12:48 PM

Bills coach Sean McDermott said the team is "hopeful" Jordan Matthews (chest) will return "sooner than later."

Matthews is dealing with a chip fracture in his sternum which will sideline him at least through this week and likely more. It sounds like the Bills expect him back for Week 1, but the missed time is a big concern as he attempts to settle in with his new team. With uncertainty surrounding Matthews, Zay Jones looks like a good flier in the 12th round.
