There is no 2015 profile for this player yet. Here is his 2014 profile:
Rishard Matthews burst onto fantasy owners' radar during a prime-time game in Tampa in which he collected 11 catches, 120 yards, and two touchdowns. Matthews will be fighting for the third receiver spot on the Dolphins' line-up. He filled in well for the injured Brandon Gibson mid-season by snagging 41 receptions. He did at times seem to have mental lapses, though. Matthews will be battling Gibson and second round pick Jarvis Landry for playing time. A lack of speed hurts his chances, but a big body and capability of breaking tackles will help. If Matthews does in fact win the position battle, he could be worth consideration in deep formats and dynasty leagues.Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Mark Morales-Smith
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews could be named a starter this season. In the Dolphins' third preseason game, Matthews started ahead of Kenny Stills. Matthews could very well surpass both Stills and Greg Jennings. Matthews has had an excellent summer and has done a complete 180. He went from demanding a trade and being on the roster bubble to saying he's, "glad I'm here for another year" and the competition "definitely has been fair".
It will be interesting to see how the Dolphins' WR corps shakes out one DeVante Parker is at full health. It wouldn't be a surprise at all to see Matthews lining up as the WR3 behind Parker and Jarvis Landry this year. Matthews should be considered a deep sleeper and is worth keeping an eye on. He has shown flashes in the past when given the opportunity.
