A look at Titans WRs after trade

Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Dorial Green-Beckham had been considered one of four locks to make the Titans roster – along with Kendall Wright, Tajae Sharpe and Rishard Matthews.

So which receiver – or receivers – might benefit from Green-Beckham’s departure, keeping in mind the Titans are not likely to keep five on the final roster?

As for the veterans, it clears more room for guys like 31-year-old Harry Douglas and 35-year-old Andre Johnson. It seemed unlikely the Titans would keep both veterans – and that still may be the case – but it’s easier to make a case for that happening now.

Fantasy Impact:

The DGB trade could also breathe new life into Justin Hunter, a 2013 second-round pick who – like DGB – has suffered from inconsistency. Another player who benefits is Tre McBride, the second-year player out of William & Mary who spent last season on the practice squad. He wasn’t receiving much attention at the start of camp, but has come on strong over the last few weeks.

Scouting Report

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Matthews has been a pretty sure-handed guy in his first four seasons, catching 107 of the 165 targets that he's had in that period. He comes over from the Dolphins off his best season, when he had 43 receptions for 662 yards and four TDs on 61 targets. With the trade of Dorial Green-Beckham, Matthews should click pretty quickly with Marcus Mariota. Right now, his ADP places him at 77th among receivers, which means he's a super steal as a No. 3-4 receiver. We expect 50-plus catches and around 800 yards. Don't sleep on this one.
