Expert Note
View More Notes

In his first game back from his hamstring injury, Matthews played 77 percent of the snaps, which is right in-line with his season total, so you should be good to put him back into fantasy lineups when they play the 49ers this weekend. Their secondary has allowed opposing wide receivers catch 62 percent of their targets, the seventh-best rate in the league, while allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per target. He'll see third-round rookie Ahkello Witherspoon in coverage, who has done a decent job being called upon so soon, but has also allowed three touchdowns on his 31 targets in coverage. Matthews seems to be the only one who has continuity with Mariota, so consider him a low-end WR3 who should probably be in lineups.

Rishard Matthews catches three passes in return

Rishard Matthews caught three of five targets for 19 yards on Sunday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Matthews didn't look to be 100% and Marcus Mariota seemed incapable of getting the ball downfield anyway. Matthews will likely make a low-end Flex option next weekend against the 49ers in light of Mariota's struggles and knee injury.
