2016 Week 7 vs IND (7 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)
Rishard Matthews finished Sunday as the most targeted wide receiver on the team with seven, only one behind Delanie Walker. Matthews only managed to haul on four of those targets for 37 yards however, making it a dismal day in terms of fantasy output. Matthews' one highlight came on a 3rd and 19 to start the 4th quarter on which Matthews wrestled the ball away from and shirked off a defender to fight for a big first down to keep the drive alive.
2016 Week 6 vs CLE (3 / 3 / 70 / 1 rec)
For the second week in a row, Rishard Matthews found the end zone for the Titans as he hauled in an 11-yard reception to cap the Titans opening drive. Matthews had another big play later in the third quarter as he laid out for a 43-yard reception that set up another Titans touchdown. All of the Titans receivers had their way with the Cleveland secondary, as it was not hard to find open space and beat their safeties. Matthews has made the most out of his limited opportunities all season as he has been held to between two and four receptions in every game, but now has two touchdowns and is averaging nearly 50 yards per game. He has the potential to be a top option, but with his relatively limited volume, it will be tough to rely on him steadily outside of a tournament flyer.
2016 Week 5 vs MIA (4 / 4 / 32 / 1 rec)
Rishard Matthews had a stroll down narrative street this week as he managed to find the end zone for the first time this season against his former team in Miami. Matthews converted on all four of his targets for 32 yards. His touchdown reception came mid-way through the 4th quarter on a very impressive throw from Marcus Mariota who put the ball perfectly over the defender for Matthews to dive backwards in the corner of the end zone for the catch. Matthews has more receiving yards than any other wide receiver on the team, however his usage is still too unreliable to make Matthews a target for fantasy rosters.
2016 Week 4 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 82 / 0 rec)
Rishard Matthews found himself wide open in the 2nd quarter to catch a perfectly placed deep ball for 60 yards. His only other target and reception came on a big 3rd and 9 early in the 3rd quarter for 22 yards. While Matthews made some nice plays and led the team in receiving yards, he was only afforded two targets overall--- the fewest targets among all Titans receivers. It is hard to even consider Matthews a boom or bust option going forward, as he has been bust all season until now.
2016 Week 2 vs DET (6 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)
Matthews was target 6 times this week, converting 4 of those for 40 yards. While the Titans did spread the ball around more in this game, it was still clear that Matthews is at best a 4th-best option in the Titans passing attack. Matthews wasn't targeted until the last drive of the 1st half when Mariota went to him on back to back plays. He made a big play to start a 75-yard touchdown drive by the Titans as he worked his way to an open spot in coverage for a 20-yard reception. Outside of that play, he had a quiet outing overall.
2016 Week 1 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Rishard Matthews received the fewest targets (4) among Titans receivers, finishing with a very meager 26 yards on 3 receptions. Matthews was touted as a potential WR1 for the Titans, but it was evident after today that Tajae Sharpe has staked his claim on that role. He did not help himself by dropping a key pass in the 3rd quarter on 3rd and 11 to cap off a 3-and-out.
