Summary

Between Weeks 4-12, Matthews caught 7 touchdown passes and earned the No.11 spot among fantasy receivers in 2016. Matthews isn't a traditional deep threat, but he wins the ball well in the air and he can get behind a defense with the help of Tennessee's effective play-action game. The man-to-man route running skills of first-round pick Corey Davis and 2016 preseason darling Tajae Sharpe should open the field for Matthews as a player that the Titans can move around the formation. Top-12 fantasy receiver production could be a difficult thing for Matthews to repeat in a run-heavy offense that has upgraded the talent of the rest of the receiving corps. However, unless Davis or Sharpe take over the primary roles and produce at a high level immediately, Matthews remains a good bet to deliver no worse than low-end fantasy WR2 production. (May 25)

Titans | Rishard Matthews likely will start (Sat Jul 15, 02:11 PM) - Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews should be one of the starting wide receivers this season, in the opinion of TitansOnline.com's Jim Wyatt.

Our View: The Titans have upgraded the wide receiver position in 2017. Matthews can be moved around the formation and attack a defense in multiple ways. He should team with Eric Decker and rookie, top-5 pick Corey Davis to give QB Marcus Mariota plenty of options to throw to (and oh yeah, TE Delanie Walker). The Titans are a run-heavy team, so Matthews is getting drafted at WR53 (11.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.
