Matthews signed with the Patriots last offseason but was released by the team failing to get in a game. He signed with the Eagles and got some action as a reserve receiver with his new team. He had two games with 50-plus yards. Matthews didn't get much work throughout the year, though, having 20 catches for 300 yards and two scores He has fewer than 305 yards each of his last two seasons. Matthews is trending the wrong way at this stage of his career. He is just trying to keep a roster spot, signing with the 49ers this offseason. Matthews is a big receiver with good hands. He does a good job of making the acrobatic catch. He lacks a little top speed but remains a good deep threat because of his size and athleticism. Fantasy Outlook: Matthews could be a little more consistent than last year but that isn't saying much. He is not worth a fantasy roster spot. He might get around 30 receptions for 350 yards with a score or two.

Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (49ers) recently worked out for the Minnesota Vikings.
The San Francisco 49ers cut wide receiver Jordan Matthews over the weekend. The six-year pro registered just 45 yards in the preseason as he tried to make his third team in as many seasons. While the Niners staff heaped praise on Matthews, the decision was ultimately made to keep receivers that also contributed on special teams. Once an ascending talent with over 2,600 receiving yards in his first three seasons, Matthews will look outside of San Francisco to revitalize his career.
San Francisco 49ers WR Jordan Matthews was released Saturday, Aug. 31, according to a source.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jordan Matthews saw zero targets in limited action in Thursdays preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers. On his third team in three years, Matthews finishes the preseason with three catches for 45 yards. The sixth-year player is on the bubble, competing with Kendrick Bourne for the final wideout spot. Bourne played more than Matthews on Thursday, leading many to conclude the former had more to prove. However, Matthews contributes minimally on special teams so a luxury sixth receiver makes little sense. If he makes the cut, Matthews will start the year way off the fantasy radar.
Based on the praised heaped upon San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jordan Matthews recently, his chances of making the team appear bright. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in Matthews and believes they can win with [him]. Once an ascending talent with three straight 800-plus yard seasons to start his career, Matthews has tailed off over the past two years, collecting just 582 yards across 24 games. If he makes the squad, hell vie for snaps behind likely frontrunners Dante Pettis, Deebo Samuel and Trent Taylor. Matthews positive outlook comes at the expense of Kendrick Bourne, whos suffered drop issues this training camp. Unless he leaps the apparent starters, Matthews isnt a fantasy option if he survives final cuts.
After three promising seasons to start his career, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jordan Matthews finds himself on the bubble to make his third team in as many years. Despite totaling just 582 yards over the past two years, Matthews is comfortable battling for a roster spot. Of eight Niners receivers, only six are expected to make the 53-man squad. Second-year riser Dante Pettis and draft picks Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd figure to be locks, and Trent Taylor has secured the slot position. That leaves Matthews vying for two coveted spots against longtime Niners Marquise Goodwin, Kendrick Bourne and Richie James Jr. Unless he makes a big impact in camp or contributes elsewhere, things are looking shaky for the 27-year-old Matthews.
San Francisco 49ers WR Jordan Matthews is expected to make the 53-man roster along with Dante Pettis, Marquise Goodwin, Jalen Hurd and Deebo Samuel, according to Cam Inman of The Mercury News.
Fantasy Spin: Matthews is one of the most experienced members of a young receiving group at training camp. The 27-year-old caught 20 of 28 targets for 300 yards and two touchdowns with the Philadelphia Eagles last season. He has been in decline for the last several years, but he's still young and could prove to be a fantasy option by the end of the year.
San Francisco 49ers WR Jordan Matthews spent time with the first-team offense during spring practices and had 'his moments' in that role, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jordan Matthews, along with Richie James, is believed to be on the roster bubble heading into training camp. The team invested second- and third-round picks on receivers Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd, respectively. If everything goes as planned, Samuel will join Dante Pettis in the starting lineup immediately, and Hurd will have an evolving role in this offense as well. The 26-year-old Matthews had a career-low 20 receptions for 300 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games for the Eagles last year and really hasn't done much since his sophomore season in Philly in 2015. He can be ignored in fantasy to begin the year.
San Francisco 49ers WR Jordan Matthews is on the bubble following the team's selections of WRs Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco, who also mentions WR Richie James and possibly WR Kendrick Bourne as players whose spots are not guaranteed.
