Week 9: vs San Diego Chargers

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Dolphins and Ryan Tannehill have taken care of business and beat the teams they should have defeated over the past two weeks, with 16/29 for 196 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown at Jacksonville (a 27-13 win) and 25/32 for 277 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions tossed at Chicago (a 27-13 win). Mike Wallace leads all Miami receivers with 15 targets during that time span, for 7/105/1 receiving; Charles clay has seen eight targets for 5/59/1 receiving in the Dolphins' spread-it-around pass offense. The Chargers have not taken care of business in the past two weeks, dropping two games straight while allowing 25/35 for 286 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions to Peyton Manning last week (zero sacks) and 19/28 for 211 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions, with three sacks for -10 yards, to Alex Smith at San Diego two weeks ago. Though the Chargers are sixth in the NFL averaging 219.1 net passing yards allowed per game, they've coughed up 14 passing scores vs. a mere four interceptions and 15 sacks generated to date (tied for 23rd- and 18th-ranked in the NFL, respectively). The Chargers' D is reeling entering Week 9. Advantage, Miami.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 8 vs JAX (2 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)

After a few big games last season, it was tempting to get excited about Rishard Matthews. Well, after scoring a TD on Sunday, there likely won't be too many people getting excited about the Miami WR. He played 16 snaps, and saw two targets, but really is nothing more than another tool to show defenses a different look. He's played at least a handful of snaps in every game this season, even as high as 25-30 against Buffalo and Oakland (blowouts), but is still the #5 receiver for the Dolphins when all parties are healthy. He'll need an injury or even two to gain relevance in any fantasy league this season.
