The 49ers have signed WR Jordan Matthews to a 1-year deal. The 2014 2nd-rounder racked up 225 catches and 2,673 yards over his first 3 NFL seasons. But he's mustered just 45 grabs and 582 yards across the past 2, dealing with injuries and playing for 3 different teams. Matthews turns just 27 in July, though, and is capable of playing both outside the numbers and in the slot. There's opportunity for him to carve out a significant role in San Francisco amid a largely unproven WR corps.

The Eagles have signed WR Jordan Matthews. A 2nd-round pick by Philly back in 2014, Matthews averaged 75 catches, 891 yards and 6.3 TDs across his first 3 seasons. He was a non-factor after being shipped to Buffalo last year and then was cut by the Patriots after injuring his hamstring in August. Matthews is still just 26, though, and was a fantasy asset just a couple of seasons ago. There's opportunity in Philadelphia with WR Alshon Jeffery still sidelined and WR Mike Wallace now on IR. Matthews is worth monitoring -- and maybe even adding as a flier in deep fantasy leagues.

The Patriots have released WR Jordan Matthews. That didn't take long. After reportedly impressing in spring workouts, Matthews suffered a significant hamstring injury in Sunday's camp practice. We'll see if and when he resurfaces, but he's obviously off the redraft radar now. New England is left with Kenny Britt, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson and rookie Braxton Berrios behind Chris Hogan and the suspended Julian Edelman. Malcolm Mitchell remains sidelined with his knee issue.

Update: New England ended up placing Matthews (hamstring) on IR. He'll likely end up being released with an injury settlement.

Patriots WR Jordan Matthews is dealing with what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls a "significant" hamstring injury. Matthews went down in practice on Sunday and hasn't been back on the field since. He had been considered the favorite to step in during Julian Edelman's 4-game suspension, but this injury throws a wrench in those plans. We've heard positive buzz on WRs Kenny Britt, Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson early in camp. And New England has shown some interest in free-agent WR Eric Decker. This remain a wide-open situation that we'll be monitoring closely.

The Patriots have agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Jordan Matthews, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Matthews endured a terrible 2017 that included just 25 receptions and ended early for knee and ankle surgeries. The Eagles traded him to Buffalo in August, but Matthews immediately suffered a sternum fracture -- losing crucial preparation time -- and also lost mid-season time to a thumb fracture that required surgery. New England can be a charmed situation for offensive skill players, but the Patriots stand crowded at WR right now. The corps will take some sorting before fantasy football owners can know who to trust. Matthews is an OK shot to take near the end of best-ball drafts but a big risk earlier than that. Matthews has been much better in the slot than outside as an NFL wideout and thus looks more like a candidate to take over for Danny Amendola rather than direct competition for Kenny Britt and Malcolm Mitchell.

Injury Predictor

Mattews has only missed a total of two games over the past three seasons. Although sidelined now (knee), he is expected to be ready by the offseason training. He is the second option this year but in past years has still put up more than 800 receiving yards each season.
