Rishard Matthews quiet in loss to Patriots

Rishard Matthews caught three of eight targets for 27 yards in Saturday's loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

After a fine season, Matthews ended his year with three straight dud performances. He should still be a big part of the Tennessee offense next season, though Corey Davis's emergence may put a damper on his fantasy prospects next season.

Rishard Matthews quiet in Wild Card win

Rishard Matthews caught only one pass on two targets for 15 yards in the Titans' Wild Card round win over the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

The Titans offense left much to be desired in the passing game, at least from a fantasy perspective. Since one of Mariota's 19 completions and one of his two touchdowns were to himself, there wasn't much to go around. That being said, it's concerning that Matthews only saw two targets, which trailed Delanie Walker (8), Corey Davis (7), Eric Decker (5), and Jonnu Smith (4). Matthews should be used with caution next week if at all. It's possible that Walker and Decker are non-factors next year or not around, so that could bode well for Matthews. He could be a nice value in 2018 drafts.

Rishard Matthews with just one catch against the Jaguars

Rishard Matthews caught one of two targets for seven yards on Sunday against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

It was an obviously disappointing finish to the regular season for Matthews, but it's hard to blame him against the elite Jacksonville secondary. He should make a decent DFS option in the Wild Card round against the Chiefs,

Rishard Matthews with 48 yards receiving in Week 16

Rishard Matthews caught two of four targets for 48 yards on Sunday against the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Matthews had a disappointing day, considering he exploded last week. In the end, Marcus Mariota simply isn't playing well enough to buoy his wide receivers. In a tough matchup with Jacksonville next weekend, he won't be a particularly enticing play in any format.

Rishard Matthews has big day against 49ers

Rishard Matthews caught six of eight targets for 95 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

After a quiet game in his return from injury last weekend against Arizona, Matthews went back to his more customary production as the No. 1 wide receiver for Tennessee. Life won't be quite as easy next weekend against the Rams, but Matthews' guaranteed target volume always keeps him in play as a WR3, at worst.
