I'm running around, moving, lifting, jumping. I'm back doing pretty much all of that stuff."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Matthews might be the most obvious breakout candidate in this year's player pool. Not only did he have a strong rookie season (8.5 YPT on 103 targets), but the Eagles let Jeremy Maclin walk, making Matthews the de facto No. 1 target in what projects to be the league's fastest-paced offense. Moreover, at 6-3, 212, and running a 4.46 40, Matthews has the size/speed qualifications to take on the role, and Year 2 is frequently when receivers take a significant leap forward. Matthews will have to contend with an unsettled quarterback situation in Philadelphia with newly acquired Sam Bradford returning from an ACL tear and Mark Sanchez competing for the job. But Matthews had all three of his 100-yard games and six of his eight scores with Sanchez under center last year. The Eagles will run the ball a lot, especially with DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews now in the fold, and they tend to spread the ball around, but Maclin racked up 145 targets last year as the team's top option. And while the team drafted Nelson Agholor late in the first round, the receiving corps lacks quality depth behind Matthews, as the uninspiring Riley Cooper and Miles Austin are the other options.

2014

Taken in the second round by the Eagles, Matthews could hardly have landed in a better spot. At 6-3, 212 and running a 4.46 40, he has the size/speed combo to be an NFL No. 1 eventually, but will likely open the season as the teamís No. 3 behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper. Coach Chip Kelly likes to mix things up, though, and the distribution of targets between the three as well as the teamís two pass-catching tight ends is hardly set in stone.
