2018 Outlook
Matthews is an annually undervalued wide receiver passed up for more "exciting" options. As it stands, Matthews is the top wide receiver option for an offense bringing in a new offensive coordinator who proved that he can improve the passing game. 2016 was the highlight year for Matthews when he finished as the WR11 in standard scoring, but even with a step back in the offense and new receivers brought in, Matthews finished as the WR36 last season.

In just 14 games, Matthew put up a WR3 season. And in those 14 games, he put up four double-digit fantasy performances. While he'll never be a highlight reel WR1, Matthews has proven flex value and now has shown some level of success with two teams. If he can command the 18 percent target share given to LaFleur's WR1 in 2017, he'll easily outperform his WR55 ADP.


News From The Past 90 Days
Titans release WR Rishard Matthews
Veteran upset over lack of usage
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 27, 12:30 pm

Tennessee Titans
The Titans plan to release receiver Rishard Matthews today. Matthews, initially signed with the Titans prior to the 2016 season, had just three catches for 11 yards in three games this season. (Titansonline)

FFToday's Take: Matthews has been a non-factor this season after missing most of training camp with a knee injury. The team will move forward with Corey Davis, Tajae Sharpe, Taywan Taylor as their top three wideouts with only Davis being fantasy viable given their poor quarterback play and low play count on offense.


Rishard Matthews gets one-year contract extension
Remains on PUP list
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 21, 10:15 am

Tennessee Titans
The Titans have agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension with veteran receiver Rishard Matthews. Matthews, heading into his seventh NFL season, now has a contract that runs through the 2019 season. Matthews remains in the team’s Physically Unable to Perform list. (titansonline)

FFToday's Take: Matthews has been losing ground to Taywan Taylor and Corey Davis while being absent from training camp. He remains on the PUP list for now. His fantasy value is tough to gauge at this point given we don't know what injury he's dealing with or if his absence was simply due to a holdout.


Injury Rishard Matthews remains on PUP list
Undisclosed injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Aug 15, 1:00 pm

Tennessee Titans
Wide receiver Rishard Matthews, still on the physically unable to perform list with an undisclosed injury, was out on the sideline watching the first-team offense. He was in a hat and shorts and did not have any kind of wrap or brace on. Matthews has not practiced this training camp. (The Tennessean)

FFToday's Take: Matthews hasn't participated in training camp allowing Taywan Taylor to move into the starting lineup opposite Corey Davis. Matthews can be had in double-digit rounds of fantasy drafts but given his unknown status, Taylor may be a better late-round flier.
