Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews (above, making a catch that didn’t count for a TD because he couldn’t get his feet down) is being referred to as Mr. Garbage Time by CBSSports.com’s fantasy experts.

And Sunday’s Giants game has the chance to be high scoring based on the Giants defense – or lack thereof.

Matthews has scored a touchdown in four of the past five games and at least nine Fantasy points in a standard league in each of those outings, and the majority of his production has usually come in the fourth quarter.

It’s hard to rely on something like that, but it’s not like he hasn’t been involved otherwise with 19 targets in his past two games against Arizona and Washington.

He had six catches for 59 yards on 11 targets against the Giants in Week 6, but New York has allowed eight receivers to score at least nine Fantasy points in a standard league in the past five games, with seven touchdowns over that span.

Nelson Agholor should also be considered a sleeper this week in deeper leagues, but Matthews is worth trusting as a No. 2 receiver in this matchup.
