Titans | Rishard Matthews scores another one

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 16:59:03 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews finished with three receptions for a team-high 64 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. He was targeted seven times, also a team high.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has 63 or more receiving yards in each of his past four games, and he has a total of seven touchdowns over the past eight games to emerge as a decent low-end WR2 in most fantasy leagues. You'll need to make other plans in Week 13, as Tennessee is on a bye.

Titans | Touchdown for Rishard Matthews

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 16:58:22 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews managed three grabs for 63 yards and a touchdown on five targets in the Week 10 win against the Green Bay Packers.

Titans | Rishard Matthews scores twice

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 22:47:54 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted six receptions for 63 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 9 game against the San Diego Chargers. Matthews was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews got off to a tough start this season, but he has visited the end zone at least once four times in the past five games (five total touchdowns). He has re-emerged as a decent WR3 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers and their leaky pass defense.

Titans | Rishard Matthews might work in X

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 22:48:22 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews might be used as the X position to spell rookie WR Tajae Sharpe in Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins. Matthews was replaced as the Z receiver by veteran WR Andre Johnson in the Week 4 game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has been a big disappointment in Nashville so far, and he is only worth retaining as a WR4 in fantasy leagues with deeper rosters.

Titans | Rishard Matthews leads the way

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 17:39:46 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews hauled in two receptions for a game-high 82 yards in the Week 4 game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews was a big-money free agent in the offseason, but he has not really lived up to his paycheck until Week 4. He entered with 10 grabs for 98 yards on 18 targets in the first three games. He has the potential to be an impact fantasy option, but for now he is only worth a spot as a WR4 in the deepest of fantasy leagues until he shows more consistency. He'll face his former team, the Miami Dolphins, in South Florida in Week 5 so perhaps he'll play with a little more purpose.

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.
