Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

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.

Scouting Report

Week 12 at New York Jets
Rishard Matthews had just one catch for 15 yards last week as the Dolphins offense struggled. Ryan Tannehill finished with less than 200 passing yards, so it's understandable why Matthews didn't have big numbers, either. This week, Matthews draws a tough matchup against the Jets. He won't be going against Revis, but we still don't like the game. He should be viewed as a WR4 this week.
