Rishard Matthews signs with Jets

The New York Jets are signing free agent wide receiver Rishard Matthews.

Fantasy Impact

Matthews worked out for the Jets last week before saying he probably won’t sign this year. That has changed of course, and Matthews likely takes the spot of recently released Terrelle Pryor. Matthews isn’t on the fantasy radar right now after taking nearly half the year off.

Rishard Matthews unlikely to sign this season

Rishard Matthews told reporters that he's unlikely to sign with a team this season.

Fantasy Impact

Matthews recently worked out for the Jets, but this report would seem to indicate that he's likely to wait until the offseason to sign with a new team. Matthews was fantasy relevant last season, but it appears he'll remain sidelined for the 2018 campaign.

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.
