Fantasy football start/sit advice Week 10: What to do with Jordan Matthews

This post was originally published on this site

After trading away Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams in the preseason, the Buffalo Bills acquired Jordan Matthews from the Philadelphia Eagles to be the new No. 1 receiver for Tyrod Taylor. However, those plans went awry thanks to injuries and poor play by Matthews.

Matthews missed the rest of presesason with a chest injury and then needed thumb surgery in the middle of the regular season, but he was lucky to only miss one game thanks to the Bills’ bye week. In seven games, Matthews has just 21 catches for 239 yards and one touchdown with his fantasy appeal going in the tank.

Fantasy impact: The Bills all but threw in the towel on Matthews as the No. 1 guy when they traded for Kelvin Benjamin at the deadline. Matthews will still be a starter, but Benjamin is a much better fit for Taylor’s skill set, and the Bills’ passing game doesn’t have enough volume to support multiple receivers. Matthews is off the starting radar against the New Orleans Saints’ improved defense this week.

Recommendation: Sit
