DeMarco Murray, Jordan Matthews, Sam Bradford's Post-Week 2 Fantasy Advice

Published by Bleacher Report on Mon, 21 Sep 2015

The only people who had a worse Sunday than Chip Kelly are fantasy football owners who started Sam Bradford and DeMarco Murray. At least the Jordan Matthews owners picked up a receiving touchdown in garbage time of the Philadelphia Eagles' 20-10 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys.Here's a look at how the three players performed in Week 2:Murray's numbers between Weeks 1 and 2 are almost comicalto the extent they have nowhere to go but up. Should this tweet from ESPN Stats & Info actually come true, it would almost be impressive on the part of Murray and the Eagles:Also, let's enjoy all of the players who temporarily have more rushing yards than the Eagles running back, per SportsCenter:If you have Murray on your team, don't overreact. Maybe you put him on the bench for a week to see if this trend continues, but you shouldn't drop him from your team completely.You also shouldn't trade him because his value isn't exactly sky-high at the moment. There's little chance you'd get fair value for Murray in return.Be patient. Maybe the 27-year-old doesn't emerge as an RB1 this year, but he should be a valuable fantasy option in 2015 nonetheless.The same positive attitude shouldn't be afforded to Bradford, who is firmly QB2 material. Judging by how he looked Sunday, that designation is unlikely to change this year. Bradford can't handle pressure in the pocket, and his decision-making is questionable at times.While head coach Chip Kelly didn't outright say he plans on benching Bradford any time soon, he didn't completely dismiss the notion after Sunday's game."We've been there, and we understand that," Kelly said of his team's slow start, per Max Rappaport of PhiladelphiaEagles.com. "(But) just because we went through it before doesn't mean we're going to get it straightened out. We'll evaluate everything, (like) we evaluated everything then."Unless he loses his starting job to Mark Sanchez, Bradford should occupy a place on your bench in the seemingly unlikely event he goes all Nick Foles circa 2013.The good news for fantasy owners who have Matthews is that his value shouldn't fluctuate quite like Bradford's or Murray's. Matthews is the No. 1 target in the Eagles' passing game, which is bound to lead to big numbers in Philadelphia's offense.Bradford's inconsistency could hurt Matthews somewhat every once in a while but not to the extent you'll want to bench him.
