Grading the Eagles' Moves: Jordan Matthews Traded to Bills

"Eagles acquire CB #Ronald Darby from Buffalo for WR #Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick".

According to Bleacher Report on Friday, the Bills' trade involves sending away wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a 2018 pick in the sixth round to the Los Angeles Rams.

Instead of the players the Bills received in return, the key to whether this trade will be successful for Buffalo is the draft picks they acquired.

The Bills' front office was boosted by an offseason regime change that saw first-year coach Sean McDermott get more say in personnel moves. Through his first two seasons Darby has only missed three games with 137 tackles, 33 passes defensed, and two interceptions. However, his best single-season effort came in 2015 despite missing three regular-season matchups. Over his career, he's had 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns.

"Sammy has proven he can be a productive player and an explosive receiver in this league, we look forward to having him in a Rams uniform", Rams general manager Les Snead said in a news release.

By nightfall, cranes aided by floodlights began to remove the wreckage off the tracks to allow rail traffic to resume. One of the trains was travelling from Cairo , the other from Port Said, according to local media.

Darby was a five-star recruit out of Potomac High School in Oxon Hill, Maryland, considered the best player in the state of Maryland and by some services as the top cornerback prospect.

A year ago, Jordan Matthews was the unquestioned leader of a young and inexperienced receiver group, charged with not just carrying the load but also helping the rookie franchise quarterback acclimate to the NFL.

The important parts of the deals, at least for fantasy owners, are Watkins going to the Rams and Matthews going to Buffalo.

Jordan Matthews will join the Bills after three seasons in Philadelphia. "It goes to the player that we got, the position that we're acquiring and how hard it is to find those guys". But playing devil's advocate, let's say they throw the ball 520 times and he gets a 20 percent target share, we're looking at 104 targets.
