Fantasy Decisions: Packers’ Randall Cobb vs. Eagles’ Jordan Matthews

NFL Fantasy Football

This was a tough one to break down for you Fantasy Football
owners. Let’s start in Philadelphia with Jordan Matthews. Matthews
had career lows in receiving yards and touchdowns in 2016. The
Eagles’ entire passing game was pretty trashy in 2016. Fantasy
Football owners already know Nelson Agholor is a bum and Dorial
Green-Beckham, who they got rid of, was trash also. Carson Wentz
looked good at times in his rookie season, but Jordan Matthews was
his only wide receiver who belonged in the National Football
League. This season, though, Wentz and Matthews will have true
NFL-caliber talent around them. The Eagles went out and scooped up
Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffrey in the offseason. Matthews will now
have someone beside Zach Ertz to take away attention from him. Not
to mention Matthews is already familiar with Wentz and the
offensive scheme. Smith and Jeffrey will have to get there
throughout training camp and the preseason.

Fantasy Football owners who rostered Randall Cobb in 2016 will
likely not own him again this year. Cobb was a bust last season but
I think most of that was due to injury. Davante Adams likely played
a role also. Cobb spent most of the 2016 season banged up, but when
he was healthy in the playoffs he put up two very nice games. In
National Fantasy Football Championship leagues Cobb is currently
going off the board as wide receiver 40 while Matthews is 46.
Fantasy Football owners are a trip, I tell you. Receivers like John
Brown, Eric Decker, and DeVante Parker should not be going ahead of
these guys. Matthews is currently dealing with a knee injury but
should be ready to go for training camp. Check out the video and
see which one I select but this is a tough call. The good news is
both players will return value on their current ADPs.
