Rishard Matthews working out for Jets

Rishard Matthews worked out for the Jets on Tuesday, according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

One of the Jets' top WRs, Quincy Enunwa, is dealing with a potential multi-week injury, and they haven't had consistent production from the position this season. Matthews was fantasy relevant as recent as a season ago, though he would join a rather crowded group of receivers including Terrelle Pryor, Jermaine Kearse, and Robby Anderson.

Rishard Matthews reportedly released by Titans

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, wide receiver Rishard Matthews asked for the Tennessee Titans to release him due to lack of targets. On his own personal Instagram post, Matthews wrote "When Daddy's home for good. That is unless someone calls him to get off the couch," implying that the Titans had granted his wish and released the seventh-year pro. In three games, Matthews played exactly half of the Titans snaps but registered only three catches for 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact

If Matthews is indeed on the open market, he should quickly attract attention from one of several wide receiver-needy teams. Matthews averaged 54 catches for 801 yards and 5.7 touchdowns annually over the past three seasons. He can still be a quality NFL receiver and be fantasy-relevant if he winds up in a solid landing spot.

Rishard Matthews quiet again in Week 3 win

Rishard Matthews caught one pass on two targets for three yards as the Titans defeated the Jaguars 9-6 on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Matthews was supposed to be a big part of the Titan game plan and came into the season as WR2. But through three games Matthews has three catches on six targets. Fantasy owners in standard leagues should be dropping the veteran wide receiver for someone more productive on the waiver wire.

Rishard Matthews catches two passes in win on Sunday

Rishard Matthews caught two passes on four targets for eight yards as the Titans defeated the Texans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Matthew has been a disappointment through two games as he has just the two catches as he did not see a target in Week 1. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel suggested that Matthews is likely to see his role gradually expand during the team's upcoming games. But that gradual uptick may not be enough for fantasy owners and Matthews can be dropped in standard leagues.

Rishard Matthews does not see a target in Week 1

Rishard Matthews played 30 snaps but was not targeted in the Titans' Week 1 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

It was reported Matthews would be closely monitored at the beginning of the season after he was absent for much of training camp with a torn meniscus. This is the reason he was not a big part of the offense on Sunday. Assuming he suffers no setbacks throughout the week at practice, Matthews should see his role increase in Week 2 against the Texans.
