Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs) was placed on IR and is out for today’s finale against the Patriots. Rookie DeVante Parker gets another start and is in the WR3 mix.
Titans WR Rishard Matthews predictably struggled to post numbers against the Broncos on Sunday. He caught just 1 of 3 targets for 26 yards. The targets and yards both ranked 2nd on the team to TE Delanie Walker on a day where QB Marcus Mariota completed just 6 passes for 88 yards. The schedule holds at least 2 more tough matchups, with next week's trip to K.C. potentially tough as well. Matthews is no more than a WR4 the rest of way.
Tajae Sharpe and Rishard Matthews emerged as the Titans' top 2 WRs in spring practices, according to insider Terry McCormick. Sharpe is a 5th-round rookie but generated buzz from coaches and media throughout OTAs. Matthews never carved out a significant role in Miami but was efficient with the targets he got. Tennessee's WR depth chart remains fluid, though, with Kendall Wright and Dorial Green-Beckham still squarely in the mix. DGB retains the highest upside of the group.
The Titans have inked WR Rishard Matthews to a 3-year deal, according to ESPN's Paul Kuharksy. Matthews spent the first 4 seasons of his career in Miami and was never able to carve out a significant role. But he was efficient, hauling in 65.3% of his targets and averaging 13.0 yards per catch over the last 3 years. Matthews led Dolphins WRs in yards per target (10.9) in 2015. It's a sneaky-good addition for the Titans, but Matthews figures to slot in as the #3 WR behind Kendall Wright and Dorial Green-Beckham. With TE Delanie Walker also garnering a big piece of the pie, Matthews will struggle for reliable weekly fantasy production.
Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots but doesn’t expect to play, per insider Barry Jackson. Rookie DeVante Parker gets another start and is an intriguing WR3. Miami figures to be playing catchup this weekend, and New England will likely try to take away WR Jarvis Landry.
