Eagles make a splash with Matthews trade

Eagles make a splash with Matthews trade

It might take us a year or two before we know who the true victor is in all of this moving around.

This was a legit move though as the Eagles reeled in 23-year-old career starter Ronald Darby from the Buffalo Bills.

His skillset also meshed well with that of Tyrod Taylor, a player who, this summer, nearly became an ex-Bill himself.

All you have to do is compare Watkins's career stats to Matthews's to see that Taylor's fantasy value takes a hit as well.

Nelson Agholor enjoyed a strong spring manning the slot in Matthews' absence. With that number nearly certainly rising in 2017, you can expect a bump in pass attempts, which wasn't hard to do to begin with, seeing as the Bills have ranked in the bottom-two for pass attempts in each of the last two years.

Whether that time is lessened to two games or four games there still lies uncertainty that Elliott could miss valuable time for the Cowboys - and if it's early in the season that's a problem for fantasy owners. "Looking at that group, we have bunch of young players we're excited about". Darby was considered their top cornerback on the depth chart. He'll now be replaced by E.J Gaines. He's played in the National Football League for two years.

After being named to the Pro Football Writers Association of America All-Rookie team in 2016, Darby finished 2016 with 69 tackles. "I think there has been a lot of talk about this (past) draft class being deep at wide receiver, but I'm real confident in (Matthews) being the best one out of the class". Will he be able to play for the entire season during the appeals process, much like Tom Brady did before his 2016 suspension for Deflategate? In a separate deal, the Buffalo Bills traded away their best cornerback for the Eagles' Jordan Matthews. "The draft pick is big, too".

"I have faith in our management and I have faith in Coach McDermott that they made a decision based on the betterment of this team". The Bills have removed the possibility of Watkins performing like a superstar and making the offense even more dynamic than it was a year ago. But this isn't just about the upcoming season. They also traded the 10th overall pick in this year's draft to the Kansas City Chiefs for their first and a third in that draft and a first in next year's draft. They're competitors and believe they can be good this year while building for the future. However, what makes the Bills different from teams like the Cleveland Browns or New York Jets is they weren't a team with league-low talent.
