Rishard Matthews, WR, Dolphins
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 Jun-23-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
Dolphins' wide receiver Rishard Matthews demanded a trade this offseason, however, he was not granted his wish and remains in South Beach. Matthews was reportedly not happy with his role and was only further disturbed after the team acquired Greg Jennings and DeVante Parker. It sounds like some of his teammates feel similarly to Matthews. Some believe he would "thrive" if he was given a greater opportunity. He showed some flashes in 2013 including a game against a tough Buccaneers' defense in which he caught 11 passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns.Fantasy Analysis:
Matthews is a talented kid. He also has good size and speed. At 6-foot, 217 pounds he's a mismatch in the slot. The former seventh-round pick has shown an ability to make plays when given the opportunity, just like his teammates suggested he would. His issue is that he's behind Parker, Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. He's also behind Jennings at the moment but that won't last. It would be nice to see Matthews get an opportunity, nevertheless, he has an uphill battle in front of him to earn snaps.
