Titans | Rishard Matthews likely will start

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 11:11:47 -0700

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews should be one of the starting wide receivers this season, in the opinion of TitansOnline.com's Jim Wyatt.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews is coming off a solid 2016 season when he posted 945 yards and nine touchdowns. The team has added to their receiver corps this offseason, but Matthews probably will receive a similar amount of targets in 2017. Owners in most leagues should consider Matthews as a No. 3 receiver.

Titans | Career year for Rishard Matthews

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 13:15:55 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Rishard Matthews posted career highs in catches (65), receiving yards (945) and touchdowns (9) last season. The 65 catches were tied for the team lead, while his nine touchdowns were the most on the Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews eventually cemented himself as the No. 1 receiver in Tennessee. He should maintain that status in 2017, especially with Kendall Wright heading for free agency. Don't expect as good of a season from Matthews, but he should still be drafted in the low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 territory.

Fantasy Tip: Matthews started out rather slow, but he managed career highs with 65 catches, 945 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in his first campaign in Nashville. He proved he can be a capable No. 1 receiver and will be a solid WR3 in 2017 unless the team dramatically improves its receiving corps in the offseason.
