Paul Kuharsky - [Full Article]

The Titans have agreed to terms with receiver Rishard Matthews on a three-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Through 11 weeks (and prior to his injury), Matthews was the #22 receiver in fantasy and was on pace for a 67-1059-6.4 season. Tennessee is not the ideal landing spot, though he'll enjoy solid QB play from Marcus Mariota and compete with Kendall Wright and Dorial Green-Beckham for targets in the team's passing game. He'll have to win a starting job to be fantasy relevant and even then it will be iffy given the lackluster performance of this offense.

Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews has missed the last four games with a rib injury. He’ll miss a fifth, too.

Matthews has been placed on injured reserve. His roster spot has been filled via the elevation of linebacker Mike Hull from the practice squad.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite appearing in only 11 games, Matthews generated a career high in receptions, yards, and touchdowns with 43, 662, and four, respectively. He’ll be eligible for free agency in March. He was having a nice year before the injury, but since then, rookie DeVante Parker has filled in nicely. It will be interesting to see the plans of the Dolphins passing offense coming into the 2016 season with three legit WR options.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 16. The downgrade indicates Matthews is unlikely to play through the questionable tag. His absence is a boost for DeVante Parker.

Friday, December 25, 2015, 10:17pm

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle, probable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 16. The probable tag indicates that Parker is good to go for Week 16. With Rishard Matthews trending the wrong way, Parker is a Sneaky Start after three solid fantasy lines in his last four games. The Dolphins play early.

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs) practiced fully Wednesday. It looks like Matthews may make his return this week, but we would avoid starting him given the long layoff and the developing role of DeVante Parker.

Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 15. Matthews is working his way back. It’s not clear if he would immediately assume his starting role now that DeVante Parker is playing big snaps. The Dolphins play late, which will put Parker owners in a tough spot.

Fantasy Impact:

Friday, December 11, 2015, 6:22pm

Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews (ribs) missed practice again Friday. It looks like Matthews will miss Week 14. DeVante Parker has surpassed the 80% snaps-played mark in each of the last two weeks and he has two solid outings (4-80-1 versus the Jets and 3-63-1 against the Ravens) to show for it. The Giants are 29th in WR aFPA.
