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

Corey Parson The Fantasy Executive July 11, 2017 7:12AM EST

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.
