Titans | Rishard Matthews continues to disappoint

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 20:24:45 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted three grabs for 32 yards in the Week 3 game against the Oakland Raiders. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews came over from Miami as a high-priced free agent, but he has yet to make a splash from a fantasy perspective. Right now he can only be trusted as a WR4 in deeper leagues.

Titans | Tajae Sharpe in on every snap

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 06:55:41 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe played all 67 offensive snaps in Week 2, and WR Rishard Matthews was in on 54 percent of the plays with 36.

Fantasy Tip: Sharpe is clearly their No. 1 receiver. He has 11 catches for 109 yards in two games, but his usage rate gives him upside moving forward. He's a great WR3 right now.

Titans | Rishard Matthews working on timing

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 20:18:57 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews said he and QB Marcus Mariota missed a couple of opportunities in Week 1, but offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie said he expects their timing to improve.

Fantasy Tip: Tajae Sharpe looks to be Mariota's early favorite in the passing game, but Matthews is worth stashing for at least a few weeks to see how his role develops.

Titans | Several Tennessee WRs could be in slot

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 21:37:02 -0700

While Tennessee Titans WR Harry Douglas is expected to be the primary slot receiver in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings, head coach Mike Mularkey said Thursday, Sept. 7, that WRs Andre Johnson, Rishard Matthews and Marc Mariani might also see time in the spot in various packages.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is the best bet for fantasy success in Week 1, while Johnson is only worth a look as a WR4 in deeper formats. Mariani isn't much in the receiving game, but he is a decent low-end fantasy play in formats which also include individual return yardage.

Titans | Rishard Matthews developing chemistry

Tue, 10 May 2016 14:18:25 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews is developing a chemistry with QB Marcus Mariota in offseason workouts.

"This is where you develop the chemistry," Matthews said. "If you don't have chemistry with your quarterback, it is kind of hard to connect on Sundays and game days. But we have been staying after throwing with the limited time that we get and I think it is going good so far."

Fantasy Tip: Matthews was having a breakout season before a rib injury derailed him last year in Miami. He'll be a good WR3 with some upside in fantasy.

Titans | Rishard Matthews ready to work

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 16:58:25 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews said he and QB Marcus Mariota have already been talking about when to meet up and start running routes.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Matthews wants to establish some chemistry with Mariota as soon as possible. He showed some big-play ability with Miami last year, and if he emerges as Mariota's favorite target, Matthews could be a quality WR2 in 2016.

Patriots | Two receivers have Pats' interest

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 06:04:46 -0800

Free-agent WR Mohamed Sanu (Bengals) and WR Rishard Matthews (Dolphins) have received interest from the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: The Pats rarely pay for wide receivers, and both figure to land lucrative deals in a weak WR market. They are both midrange wide receivers that could have upside in the right system.

Titans | Tennessee interested in Rishard Matthews

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 18:08:47 -0800

Miami Dolphins impending free-agent WR Rishard Matthews could be of interest to the Tennessee Titans, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is one of the better options at receiver in a weak free-agent class and makes sense with the Titans, who don't have much at the position beyond Kendall Wright and rookie Dorial Beckham-Green. With Wright a bit injury-prone and Beckham-Green still learning the position, Matthews could be a worthwhile late-round selection in fantasy drafts this summer if he lands in Tennessee.
