Rishard Matthews to take over slot role

Florida Sun-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Nobody has to remind Rishard Matthews his number is finally being called, and that the Dolphins need him to step up as the team's new slot receiver.

But there is some concern about the process being rushed because Matthews doesn't have much experience playing the slot receiver role, which involves a lot of route adjustments and defensive reads.

Matthews has practiced in the slot going back to last season, but not on a full-time basis. Even quarterback Ryan Tannehill admits his chemistry with Matthews will be a factor in the passing game moving forward.

"It takes time and some reps," Tannehill said. "It is a chemistry thing in the slot, knowing when to get uncovered, hot throws, timing in and out [of breaks]. But I feel good about it. I feel like he has a good handle on it."

Fantasy Impact:

The slot receiver is active in the Dolphins offense so there is some upside here, but we shouldn't expect anything more than what Brandon Gibson was producing prior to the injury. Gibson had three TDs in the last two games, but was averaging 4.3-47-.42 on the season.

Dolphins WR Armon Binns came along, and was so dominant in practice during his three weeks with the team last year, coaches made him the slot receiver for the final three games and began calling plays for him. Fast forward six months and, fortunately for Miami, this waiver-wire find continues to deliver.

Fantasy Impact:

The articles continues that if Binns continues on his present pace during training camp and the exhibition season, he could push Brandon Gibson for his role as Miami's slot receiver.

Nobody in the Dolphins' offense helped his stock more this offseason than WR Armon Binns, who dropped two passes in the season finale. “That left a bad taste in my mouth,” he said. “I want to show Ryan I can be consistent, show them who the real Armon Binns is.”

Joe Philbin likes having bigger receivers in the slot: 6-0 Brandon Gibson or 6-3 Binns. “Sometimes, it’s easier when you have a bigger body at times cruising through the middle,” Philbin said. “I don’t want to jinx him – I’m usually the kiss of death – but [Binns] is playing faster.”

In three-receiver sets, Brandon Gibson lined up in the slot and showed good quickness, with Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline outside.
