New Orleans Saints WR Rishard Matthews was released with a left squad designation Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Matthews fall from fantasy grace is complete now. Whatever caused him to fall so far so fast was probably connected to him leaving his latest team.

  Saints | Rishard Matthews headed to New Orleans    Thu Jun 13, 04:31 PM

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Titans) signed an undisclosed contract with the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, June 13, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Matthews is healthy now after a hamstring injury landed him on Injured Reserve last season. He's got a real chance at cracking the 53-man roster with the Saints. They've got a ton of question marks on the roster behind Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. We'll see if Matthews can do enough to impress in training camp.

  Saints | Rishard Matthews trying out    Wed Jun 12, 06:43 PM

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Jets) is participating in the New Orleans Saints minicamp this week on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Matthews had a bizarre 2018 season, playing eight games on the season with three coming for the Titans and five for the Jets. He had five catches for 24 yards during those contests in 2018. We'll see if his tryout with the Saints can earn him a chance on the 90-man roster for training camp.

  Jets | Rishard Matthews could contribute     Fri Oct 26, 09:40 PM

New York Jets WR Rishard Matthews is still learning the offense but could see playing time against the Chicago Bears in Week 8, but head coach Todd Bowles wouldn't say how much he plans to use Matthews.

Footballguys view: Matthews was just signed by the Jets earlier in the week. He has plenty of experience so hopefully getting him up to speed doesn't take that long. Matthews may play some on Sunday against the Bears but he's not fantasy relevant...even as a crazy, what am I doing type of 'what the heck' flex. The Jets are thin at the position with Quincy Enunwa (ankle) out and Robby Anderson (ankle) doubtful for Sunday.

  Jets | Rishard Matthews signs with Jets    Tue Oct 23, 12:10 PM

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Titans) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the New York Jets Tuesday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: The Jets needed some help at the WR position with Quincy Enunwa banged up and Terrelle Pryor released. Matthews didn't think he would sign with a team this year but the Jets get the deal done. He'll take some time to get used to the offense so don't expect a lot from him at this point.

  NFL | Rishard Matthews expects to sit out season    Wed Oct 17, 11:34 PM

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Titans) has worked out for a few teams but does not expect to sign with a team this season.

Footballguys view: Matthews cited his criminal record as a problem, but there is also probably doubt about his level of play. He's droppable even in deep dynasty leagues.

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Titans) is working out for the New York Jets Tuesday, Oct. 16.

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Titans) is scheduled to work out for the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, Oct. 9, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Matthews is getting a little bit of interest and should find a new home soon. The Cardinals are banged up at the position, so perhaps Matthews makes sense for them.

Free-agent WR Rishard Matthews (Titans) is scheduled to work out for the Cleveland Browns Monday, Oct. 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Browns are reportedly going to limit the snaps for rookie Antonio Callaway, so Matthews could latch on here and get some work. This might be his most likely destination.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews granted release    Thu Sep 27, 12:20 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews is being released Thursday, Sept. 27.

Footballguys view: Matthews has been bandied about as a potential add for the Eagles, and he should draw interest from other wide receiver needy teams, but the best he can hope for at this point is a role player target share, so his fantasy value is flatlining.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews had surgery    Thu Aug 23, 06:26 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (knee) had surgery earlier this month to repair a torn meniscus in his knee but could be activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list as soon as next week, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Meanwhile Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor, as well as Tajae Sharpe have all stepped up in his absence and even if Matthews comes back, he's likely to be an afterthought. Even at an ADP of 56th receiver off the board we are hesitant on him.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews moving closer to return    Tue Aug 21, 11:15 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) is making progress in his recovery and hopefully will be back on the field shortly, according to head coach Mike Vrabel.

Footballguys view: This is still being told in uncertain terms, which is not a great sign for Matthews this close to the season beginning. He has missed the new offense install and Taywan Taylor has been outstanding on the outside in his stead. He might be a role player to begin the season and if he has additional problems with whatever the issue has been for the last three months, he's probably not going to be anything more this year.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews agrees to extension    Tue Aug 21, 09:03 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews agreed to a one-year extension Tuesday, Aug. 21, through 2019.

Footballguys view: The extension is a team option with a base value of $7.75 million. Matthews will serve as the Titans no2 WR opposite Corey Davis. It's the best spot for him and Matthews can be a consistent target for QB Marcus Mariota when he's healthy. Matthews was not getting drafted in many leagues while he dealt with an undisclosed injury but he should be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. At full strength in this role, Matthews has WR5 potential...makes him a deep flex option in most formats.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews remains idle    Wed Aug 15, 12:02 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) remained on the sidelines at practice Wednesday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: The lack of information about this situation is not comforting. It's not like Matthews will get healthier in season, and if it takes this much rest just for him to be able to practice, getting back to his previous level of play and conditioning and staying there will be difficult. Matthews is still worth a late pick on his track record, but he might be a quick release if he can't contribute in Week 1. Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor have higher ceilings with this in mind, and Tajae Sharpe should have a shot at redemption this year.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews to PUP    Mon Jul 30, 11:36 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 30, and will not practice.

Footballguys view: It was originally thought Matthews injury wasn't serious enough to send him to the PUP, but now that has changed. The injury was an issue for at least two months before camp opened, so this is starting to cast a shadow on Matthews' value and make Corey Davis, Delanie Walker and Taywan Taylor a lot more interesting in drafts.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews not on field    Thu Jul 26, 03:33 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Thursday, July 26, but was in attendance. Head coach Mike Vrabel said Matthews will be on the field when he is cleared and that the team wants to be patient.

Footballguys view: Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor should step up this year, with Davis taking over the top spot. The result is Matthews dropping down to the No. 2 spot, which he is more effective in anyway. Right now his ADP is hovering at 50th receiver overall, 123rd player off the board. He looks very much like a rotational player in fantasy, with a few good games and some OK but not great overall production.

  Titans | Two Titans WRs should be ready for camp    Thu Jun 14, 06:41 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) and WR Corey Davis (undisclosed) should be ready for the start of training camp after they missed some offseason workouts because of injuries, according to head coach Mike Vrabel.

Footballguys view: Davis has a lot of upside, and his ADP of 31 receiver off the board is attractive because we foresee a nice bump up his second year in the NFL. Matthews is a little less exciting, as we expect him to fall back to a No. 2 role with the team this year. He's the 50th receiver off the board in early drafts and that's about where he should be.

  Titans | Rishard Mathews good to go    Fri Dec 8, 01:46 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Matthews will likely see a lot of Patrick Peterson in this one, and Marcus Mariota's play hasn't been confidence-building in fantasy leagues. Matthews is a low ceiling WR3/Flex at best this week.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews takes part in practice    Thu Dec 7, 03:07 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: Absent since his huge Week 11, Matthews should be raring to go, which should help Marcus Mariota get out of the funk he's been in for two weeks. That said, Mariota's recent struggles throwing the ball will limit Matthews a little, especially in a game with a good Cardinals secondary. We consider Matthews a solid WR4 this week.

The Tennessee Titans have declared QB Brandon Weeden, OG Corey Levin, CB Curtis Riley, DL David King, FB Jalston Fowler, DB Kalan Reed, WR Rishard Matthews inactive for Week 13.

Footballguys view: With Matthews out again, Corey Davis and Eric Decker will get into flex consideration, and Delanie Walker will be an even better TE1, although it makes it more difficult to expect that this will be the week that Marcus Mariota turns it around.

  Titans | Friday's injury report for Tennessee    Fri Dec 1, 05:02 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 1, and he is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Houston Texans. RB DeMarco Murray (illness), LB Brian Orakpo (shoulder), OL Brian Schwenke (illness) and S Da'Norris Searcy (ankle) practiced in full and were removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Matthews appears to have a better chance of playing than he did last week, but like last week, his status will be determined by how he does in pregame warmups. The matchup is good against the Texans if he can go, with some risk of re-injury or limited effectiveness.

  Titans | Rishard Matthews to be game-time decision    Fri Dec 1, 01:30 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 1, and is expected to be a game-time decision after being listed as questionable on the Week 13 injury report against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: The team should err on the side of caution since they are set to make the playoffs right now and are facing a weakened Texans team this week. Delanie Walker would be the big winner in fantasy if Matthews is out again, as Eric Decker and Corey Davis both came up small with Matthews out last week.

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring), LB Brian Orakpo (shoulder), S Da'Norris Searcy (ankle) and LB Brian Schwenke (illness) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

Footballguys view: Matthews isn't off to a good start this week after being ruled out for Week 12 with a hamstring injury. The Titans have a good matchup against the Texans, but Corey Davis and Eric Decker have been underperforming, so if Matthews is out again, Delanie Walker may be the only playable piece of the Titans passing game.

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for the team's Week 12 game, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Footballguys view: Matthews was a late addition for the Titans on the injury report. If he doesn't play against the Colts, we should see a larger role for rookie Corey Davis. He makes for a value play in DFS leagues and has WR2 upside in standard leagues in Week 12.
