Recent Game Summaries

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.


Latest News

Titans | Tajae Sharpe in on every snap (Mon Sep 19, 09:55 AM) - Tennessee Titans WR Tajae Sharpe played all 67 offensive snaps in Week 2, and WR Rishard Matthews was in on 54 percent of the plays with 36.

Our View: Sharpe is a fine young rookie WR but the Titans are spreading the ball around so much that he's not getting the looks he needs to be fantasy relevant. We love him in dynasty formats, but re-draft owners are likely to have much better options for WR depth.

Titans | Rishard Matthews working on timing (Fri Sep 16, 11:18 PM) - Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews said he and QB Marcus Mariota missed a couple of opportunities in Week 1, but offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie said he expects their timing to improve.

Our View: So much for 'exotic smashmouth' on offense, the Titans filled the air with footballs in Week 1. Matthews has good deep speed, but we only see him as a WR6 for re-draft owners in Week 2 against the Lions.
