2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
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
Injury Robby Anderson doubtful, Jets thin at WR
Kearse and Roberts could start
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 26, 1:30 pm

New York Jets
Robby Anderson, Trumaine Johnson and Spencer Long all listed as doubtful for Sunday. WRs could be Jermaine Kearse, Andre Roberts, Rishard Matthews, Charone Peake and Deontay Burnett. Oh, boy. (Rich Cimini on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It appears Anderson will miss this game with a sprained ankle leaving the Jets extremely thin at the wide receiver position. Kearse, Roberts and newly signed Matthews could be the top three wideouts for rookie Sam Darnold against the Bears. Kearse would be the most viable fantasy asset but doesn't come with a lot of conviction.


Jets sign Rishard Matthews
Veteran WR adds help to ailing receiving corps
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 23, 12:22 pm

New York Jets
Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) on Twitter: "Former Titans’ WR Rishard Matthews is signing with the NY Jets, per source." The injury to Quincy Enunwa left the Jets without a true go-to chain mover between the 20s, and Matthews had a 65-945-9 season as recently as 2016 -- making him a decent piece to add. (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This isn't a huge fantasy announcement but Matthews could have an immediate impact as he's almost always outperformed expectations and will be playing meaningful football for the Jets.


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.
