Even if Monday Night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts doesn’t feature anybody on your current fantasy football roster, there is one player you may want to keep an eye on: Jordan Matthews.

Matthews, the Eagles’ second round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, was quiet Week 1, finishing with two catches on four targets for 37 yards. SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio’s Matt Camp and Joe Dolan are playing the long game with Matthews, though, ranking him favorably with wide receivers such as St. Louis Rams wide receiver Brian Quick and Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Highlights of the analysis from Camp and Dolan:

  • “If I’m looking to the future, I wanna pick up Jordan Matthews.”
  • “Say what you will about depth charts and all that; officially, Jordan Matthews was promoted this week.”
  • “People would be going absolutely nuts for Jordan Matthews on the waiver wire if Nick Foles made the throws he needed to make last week.”
  • “Matthews is the stash-away guy if you have that kind of room.”
