2016 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Aug-21-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update 8/21: With the departure of Dorial Green-Beckham, keep your eye on Rishard Matthews. He stands to be in line for significant volume this year and could turn out to be a real nice addition to your starting lineup.

I like this signing by the Titans. In 2015, Matthews delivered two impact games (6/115 and 6/113/2) over the first three weeks. He disappeared in Week 4 (1/16) while at least being serviceable in his next five games (6/85, 3/75/1, 7/64, 4/54, and 5/93) in PPR leagues in season-long contests. After a short game in Week 11 (1/15), his season ended due a rib injury. His success over ten games projected over 16 games would be 69 catches for 1059 yards and six TDs on 98 targets. Last season the Titans only completed 130 passes to the WR position for 1665 yards and 11 TDs on 139 targets, which was the lowest production in the NFL. Matthews should upgrade the WR core for sure, but there may not be enough balls to go around for him to deliver starting Fantasy value in any format. For him to have success, the Titans overall offense needs to make a big step forward.

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
14.04 Matt De Lima - When a WR switches teams, it can really go either way. This is an offense in flux and I don't think there's a safe WR to be found here. Matthews just wanted to play and I think he'll have an honest shot to earn snaps here.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
10.07 Mastersball - Perry Van Hook - Rishard Matthews has great skills and just needs a full time opportunity to be a good WR3. I think his new team will give him that chance and he will prosper with the Titans. 
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
11.06 Scout Fantasy - Mark Morales-Smith - Matthews was one of the most underrated signings this offseason. Looking at that lackluster WR corps, he has as good a chance as any to emerge as the top option.
