Dolphins | Rishard Matthews improving

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:46:36 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews has shown a lot of growth this offseason, according to QB Ryan Tannehill. "I would say that over the last six months I have seen the most growth from him," Tannehill said. "He is growing as a man, growing as a player, and developing his game in all aspects. His consistency is at an all-time high."

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has played well after asking to be traded last spring. He even scored in the Dolphins' third preseason game over the weekend. Temper your expectations for Matthews, though, as Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and DeVante Parker, when he's healthy, are expected to receive more playing opportunities.

Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews has performed well during training camp and started ahead of WR Kenny Stills in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews appears to have a chance to enter the season as the No. 3 receiver, which would give him more playing time. Matthews may not be an option in most drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season.

Dolphins | Rishard Matthews in familiar spot

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 17:01:49 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews is in a familiar position as he gets set to begin his fourth season with the Dolphins. Matthews sought out a release or a trade the day after the Dolphins selected WR DeVante Parker in the 2015 NFL Draft, but he's now at camp with Parker and WRs Greg Jennings and Kenny Stills ahead of him on the depth chart. "I'm trying to show the coaches I can make plays, and that [I bring] good value to this team. I can get in the end zone," said Matthews.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews has 64 career receptions for 734 yards and two touchdowns over three seasons in Miami. As it stands, Matthews will need a couple of the other Dolphins receivers to sustain an injury in order to become a fantasy asset in 2015.

Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews has strung together several strong practices at organized team activities (OTAs).

Fantasy Tip: Matthews was upset at the teamís offseason moves to bolster the position, but rather than sulk he has stepped up and could be a vital part of the offense if his strong play continues. For fantasy purposes his value is wait-and-see.
