Jordan Matthews, WR, Eagles: It’s not easy to garner 11 targets in a game and finish with as few fantasy points as Matthews scored on Sunday (2); he became only the fourth player in 2016 to score that few or fewer on at least as many targets, joining Tavon Austin (1 on 12 targets, Week 1), Corey Coleman (2 on 11 targets, Week 14) and Brandon Marshall (1 on 11 targets, Week 15). Matthews’ six catches at least kept his score from being devastating in PPR formats — he finished with eight points there — but this was a huge letdown to those who started him in standard leagues, as he was active in 46.6 percent of ESPN leagues.
All he needed was some time to get used to the intricacies of his new position and the kind of opportunity that presented itself on Sunday at Soldier Field. On a bitterly cold day with a wind chill of minus-4 degrees at kickoff and without James Starks (inactive because of a concussion), Montgomery obliterated his previous career high of nine carries. In the process, he took some of the pressure off an ailing Rodgers, who hobbled around on a bum right calf.
The highlight was a potential 2-yard loss that Montgomery turned into a 61-yard gain in the first quarter.

In all, the Packers rushed for 226 yards — easily their season high. Christine Michael also got into the act with a 42-yard touchdown, giving the Packers their first game with three rushing scores since Week 16 of the 2013 season against Pittsburgh.
But it will be Rodgers’ last throw, which traveled 52 yards past the line of scrimmage for his deepest completion of the season, that will be most remembered.

He makes those kind of catches.”
