    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Jordan Matthews received a one-year, $1 million deal with $170,000 guaranteed and $700,000 in incentives.

    Huddle Up: Matthews' basement appears to be as a WR5, but if he can acclimate himself this offseason there's no reason he can't reach the WR3 area again.

  • Posted: 4/5/2018 5:22pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the New England Patriots Thursday, April 5, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots have lost a few receivers this offseason, so Matthews has a chance to have a solid role in the passing game in 2018. He probably will not be a weekly starting option for fantasy owners next season but could be a No. 5 receiver on rosters.

  • Posted: 4/2/2018 2:49pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) has been given an undisclosed offer from the Arizona Cardinals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. As reported earlier, Matthews visited the New England Patriots Monday, April 2.

    Huddle Up: Matthews' main issue over his last two years has been staying healthy. He played only 10 games in his first season with the Buffalo Bills last year. He'll be merely a late-round dart throw wherever he lands.

  • Posted: 3/22/2018 3:30pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) is scheduled to meet with the Green Bay Packers Friday, March 23, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Matthews is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but could be a replacement for Jordy Nelson if he signs with the Packers. He probably will be a late-round option in fantasy leagues next season but would have some decent value if he plays with Aaron Rodgers.

  • Posted: 3/16/2018 5:21pm ET

    Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) visited with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, March 16.

    Huddle Up: Matthews had a disappointing and injury-marred season in Buffalo in 2017. He is looking to resurrect his career, and could be a nice addition in Arizona as they look to replace John Brown.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 6:23pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee, ankle) underwent successful surgery on his left knee and right ankle Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Matthews will head to free agency after a forgettable season, and he will need to land in the right offense to have much fantasy appeal.

  • Posted: 12/5/2017 1:17pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Matthews' season to forget mercifully comes to a conclusion. He hasn't been able to stay healthy and didn't produce much when he was healthy. For the rest of the season, Zay Jones and Deonte Thompson have the most relevance in Buffalo's receiving corps, but they shouldn't be started on playoff squads.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 1:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews posted just one grab for 14 yards on three targets in Week 13 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been a disaster in his first season in Buffalo, and the shaky quarterback play lately hasn't helped him turn a corner. He is nothing more than a WR5 in the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 9:14am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season. He has posted at least 50 yards only twice this season and has only been targeted five times over the last two weeks. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 4:46pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has a good chance to play this week, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. He will be facing an improved New England Patriots defense and can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 12:46pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Matthews is working through a knee injury and has been held to only 29 yards in his last two games. He probably will be active for the team's Week 13 game, but owners in all leagues can avoid him against the New England Patriots.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 1:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited in practice on Wednesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been a huge disappointment in his first season in Buffalo and should only be considered as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams when healthy.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 2:37pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews caught two passes for 15 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been held to under 20 yards in four of his last six games and has only one touchdown on the season. He should be avoided in all leagues until he can produce better numbers.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 8:54am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 12 game.

    Huddle Up: Matthews likely will receive as the top receiver for the Bills this week and could have some success with Tyrod Taylor back in the lineup. Owners in most leagues probably have better options available and can bench him.

  • Posted: 11/25/2017 8:59pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) is expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 12, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Buffalo's passing attack is one of the worst in the league, and Matthews has just 253 receiving yards on the season. There is no reason he should be starting in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 12:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Matthews did not play last week because of the injury, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. He has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and probably can be avoided even if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 1:49pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Matthews did not play last week but may have a better chance to play in Week 12. He has been held to 21 yards or less in four of the last five games and would not be a strong fantasy option if he plays in the game.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 2:58pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Matthews missed last weekend's game and his status for Week 12 is uncertain. He has been a huge disappointment in his first season in Buffalo and his fantasy value is limited to the deepest of leagues at this juncture, especially after the addition of Kelvin Benjamin.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 5:27am ET

    Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott is optimistic that WR Jordan Matthews (knee) will play in Week 11's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Matthews was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He only has 22 catches through eight games this season and has picked up more than 21 receiving yards just once in his last five contests, so fantasy owners should be able to find better options.

  • Posted: 11/17/2017 2:42pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Matthews probably has a solid chance to play this week, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. He will be working with a new quarterback and can be benched this week since he has been disappointing over the last few weeks.

  • Posted: 11/16/2017 12:44pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: Matthews probably will be able to play this week, but owners should check on his status later in the week to make sure. He will be working with a new quarterback in Week 11, which may hurt his fantasy value. He has been held to under 25 yards in four of the last five games and may only be a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 11/15/2017 3:13pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been a huge disappointment in Buffalo so far, and his fantasy outlook is rather murky with Nathan Peterman taking over under center for the benched Tyrod Taylor.

  • Posted: 11/2/2017 9:55pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews had six receptions for 46 yards (7.7 yards per catch) against the New York Jets in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Make it four straight games of fewer than eight yards per catch for Matthews, who hasn't had the kind of impact the Bills hoped for. It's possible the arrival of Kelvin Benjamin will open up room for Matthews to operate, but until he actually puts up some decent numbers in a game he should remain glued to your bench.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 2:46pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews posted three receptions for 21 yards in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has really struggled in his time in Buffalo so far, posting just seven grabs for 41 yards over his past three outings. At this point he is best used as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Bills travel to face the Jets in Week 9 on Thursday. Matthews had a season-high 61 yards in Week 1 against New York.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 6:03am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will be wearing a special glove to protect his right thumb.

    Huddle Up: Matthews was listed as questionable on the injury report and was a full practice participant Friday, Oct. 20, after being a limited participant in the team's two earlier sessions during the week. Given the matchup, he's worthy of consideration as a WR3 or flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 12:40pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Matthews appears to have a chance to play in Week 7 and probably will be a game-time decision. He probably would be a starter for the Bills if he plays, but his injury could affect his ability to catch the ball. Owners may want to use Matthews a flex option or could bench him if they have better options.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 11:16am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) has not participated in as many team drills as the team would have liked this week, according to head coach Sean McDermott. McDermott said the team will see how Matthews looks during practice Friday, Oct. 20, before deciding on his Week 7 status.

    Huddle Up: Matthews could be a game-time decision for Week 7, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. He probably will be a starter for the Bills if he is able to play but may be a flex option in deeper leagues this week.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 9:20am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) is practicing Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Matthews isn't a lock as a starting option in fantasy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If you need to cover multiple bye weeks, maybe, but the upside isn't real high until we see the rust is knocked off.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 3:33pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) appears to have a chance to play in Week 7, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check later in the week to see if Matthews has any chance to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will need to show that he can catch passes with his injured thumb. Owners may want to wait a week before considering Matthews as a starting option.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 1:35pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, and he was limited as expected.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been cleared to play, but it's still uncertain if he'll suit up to face the Buccaneers in Week 7. Give him at least a game or two to knock off any rust before trusting him again as a WR4 or flex option.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 7:19am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 18, but he'll be limited.

    Huddle Up: Matthews is iffy to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. If he's good to go, he's in the flex mix.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 7:39am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) is day to day, and head coach Sean McDermott said Matthews made a lot of progress during the bye week.

    Huddle Up: He'll be a flex option against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next week if he's able to go.

  • Posted: 10/2/2017 5:29am ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) is expected to undergo thumb surgery to have a pin inserted, and he could miss a month.

    Huddle Up: Andre Holmes will likely fill the starting spot, and he could be worth a WR5 pickup to cover a bye week. Zay Jones could also see increased targets as a WR5.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 4:29pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) had a big cast on his right hand after the Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Matthews suffered a thumb injury during the game and was unable to return. His status for Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals is not yet known. Zay Jones and Andre Holmes would likely pick up the slack of Matthews is forced to miss time.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 12:21pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (thumb) suffered a thumb injury in Week 4 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has been a solid option for the Bills in the passing game, but a thumb injury could affect his ability to catch the pass. Owners should look for an update on his status after the game.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 2:58pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews posted three grabs for 61 yards on five targets in Week 3 against the Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Slowly, but surely, Matthews is starting develop a rapport with Tyrod Taylor. He has been targeted 11 times through three games while posting eight receptions for 152 yards. He has a ways to go before he is a fantasy regular again, but he isn't a terrible WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 at Atlanta.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 8:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said he is happy with WR Jordan Matthews, WR Zay Jones and the rest of the receiving corps.

    Huddle Up: Through two games, Matthews is leading the team in receiving with just 91 yards. The Bills are a run-first team to the extreme, and none of Buffalo's receivers are worth starting in Week 3 against the stingy secondary of the Denver Broncos.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 3:45pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews posted three receptions for 30 yards on his three targets in Week 2 at Carolina.

    Huddle Up: Matthews saw half of the targets that rookie Zay Jones did, although no one on the Buffalo offense really had a standout day. It will be tough sledding again in Week 3 against the visiting Broncos.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 3:44pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews caught two passes for 61 yards in a 21-12 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: One of his catches was for 47 yards, proving Matthews might have some chemistry with Tyrod Taylor. How will he adjust to life in Buffalo? That's the big question. The trade to Buffalo made Matthews a flex option for starters, but he should move up the charts a little now that the first game is under the belt.

  • Posted: 9/8/2017 12:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: It is not known how much Matthews will be used in Week 1 since he has not practiced much since joining the Bills. He probably will receive a few targets in the passing game but probably should not be more than a flex option this week.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 3:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has not received a lot of practice time with the Bills since being acquired but should still be a solid part of the passing game against the New York Jets. Matthews could be a flex option for owners this week but should be more valuable as the season goes on.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 1:57pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) was listed as a full participant for practice on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Matthews appears to be on target for his debut in the team's opener against the Jets. Matthews failed to find the end zone in his final seven regular season games in Philadelphia. He and rookie Zay Jones are likely to be the biggest fantasy contributors, but they're still nothing more than WR4 or WR5 in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/4/2017 7:09am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) is still not fully cleared Monday, Sept. 4, according to head coach Sean McDermott. He is working in that direction.

    Huddle Up: He still has time to be ready to line up against the New York Jets in Week 1. Matthews is a WR3 in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 8/29/2017 12:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) is confident he'll be able to play in Week 1, but head coach Sean McDermott remains cautiously optimistic about his new receiver. Matthews said he's been doing everything to get back to full health and is in good shape, adding that the pain he felt in his chest has reduced considerably.

    Huddle Up: These are the things you want to hear right before a season starts. Matthews enters the 2017 season as underrated despite his status as the Bill's No. 1 wide receiver. If he can develop chemistry with Tyrod Taylor and stay healthy, he can certainly attain WR3 numbers by season's end.

  • Posted: 8/29/2017 9:44am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) remains a limited participant in practice, but head coach Sean McDermott told reporters Tuesday, Aug. 29, he is still 'cautiously optimistic' Matthews will be ready for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Matthews has yet to practice fully, so he is not exactly out of the woods yet. With rookie Zay Jones and little else on the roster, the Bills could certainly use Matthews in Week 1 against the New York Jets, even if he can only play limited snaps. He's still worth a late-round flyer in deeper leagues as a WR5.

  • Posted: 8/24/2017 6:46pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) participated in individual drills again Thursday, Aug. 24, and is making good progress in his recovery from his chest injury, according to head coach Sean McDermott. Matthews will not play in the third preseason game but is traveling with the team for the game. McDermott said the team does not need to see Matthews play in the preseason.

    Huddle Up: Matthews appears to have a good chance to be ready for the start of the regular season even if he does not play in the preseason. Matthews should be a starter for the Bills this season and could become their top receiver. He has a chance to be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 8/23/2017 11:44am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews was dressed in full gear and participated in positions specific drills during the individual portion of practice open to the media Wednesday, Aug. 23.

    Huddle Up: Matthews appears to be on track to play Week 1 after suffering a chest injury last week, and he'll likely be cast as a starter opposite rookie Zay Jones if he continues to progress physically. He'll be hard-pressed to be much more than a WR5 in most leagues, however.

  • Posted: 8/22/2017 8:32am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) is on schedule for Week 1, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Treat this injury much like you would someone with broken ribs. He can play through it, but it's a pain tolerance issue. One big hit or fall early in the season could put him out of the game. Couple that with Buffalo's struggling offense, and while Matthews has some upside as a WR3, his outlook for the early schedule is murky.

  • Posted: 8/21/2017 5:22pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) said he is not sure if he will play in any preseason games because he needs to be smart about his injury but is optimistic about his availability for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Matthews likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Bills this season and could lead the team in receptions if he stays healthy. The Bills likely will be a running team this season, which will hurt Matthews' value. Owners in most leagues probably should consider him a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.

  • Posted: 8/20/2017 11:51am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) was spotted in a helmet but was not in pads Sunday, Aug. 20, catching passes with the rest of his position group during individual work, according to WGR Sport Radio 550's Sal Capaccio.

    Huddle Up: It's a promising sign for a player who suffered a chip fracture in his sternum during his first practice with the team last weekend. The injury probably cost Matthews any shot of beginning the season as a starter, but he is trending in the right direction in terms of being able to play against the New York Jets on Sept. 10. He's a WR5 candidate with limited upside for fantasy purposes in Buffalo.
