2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL TRADE FALLOUT: JORDAN MATTHEWS GETS NEW LIFE IN BUFFALO

                                                            

Already Friday August 11th was a monstrous day in 2017 fantasy football without a single snap being played yet.  It started with Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott being suspended six games and was soon followed by the Buffalo Bills dealing away former first-round pick WR Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams.  Now we get a third storyline as the Bills got their Watkins replacement by completing a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles for WR Jordan Matthews.  The Bills also got a 2018 third-round pick in the deal and surrendered CB Ronald Darby.  Clearly on the outs in Philly given the arrival of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, Matthews has new life with the Bills where he all of a sudden moves into WR 1 territory on his own team.  Now Matthews is not a WR 1 in fantasy football but he has top WR 3 status as the top target of QB Tyrod Taylor.  We have seen glimpses of big-time ability from Matthews since entering into the league as he has caught 85 and 73 balls the last two years but the Eagles had other plans for him.  Matthews needs to be moved up your cheat sheets as he has durability that Watkins didn't have and could pick up 80-plus catches for the price of a late mid-round pick.
