RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

A small-sample standout in Miami two years ago, Matthews got more opportunities in Tennessee last year and proved it was no fluke. Among the league's 41 100-target WR, Matthews' 14.5 YPC and 8.8 YPT placed him 11th and 12th, respectively. Matthews saw only 15 looks from the red zone, but made the most of them, scoring seven of his nine TDs there. At 6-0, 217, Matthews is stoutly built, runs crisp routes and has good hands. His timed speed (4.62 40) is poor, but it hasn't stopped him from striking for big plays -- 16 catches of 20 plus and four of 40 or more. The Titans used the fifth overall pick on WR Corey Davis and then signed Eric Decker in June, but Matthews has done nothing but play well the past couple seasons, and he's the only one of the trio with experience in Tennessee's system. A downtick from last year's 108 targets should be expected, but the drop off won't necessarily be severe and he figures to remain efficient. Matthews was always unlikely to match last season's touchdown total, with or without Decker in the picture.

2016

Matthews parlayed a strong season with the Dolphins into a three-year deal in Tennessee this offseason, but it's hardly ideal. For starters, the Titans have a high-volume TE in Delanie Walker and a potentially dominant red-zone presence in Dorial Green-Beckham. And while the team's passing offense should improve with Marcus Mariota in his second year, it's still below average. At 6-0, 217, Matthews is stoutly built and able to make catches in traffic. He's also a good route runner and has reliable hands. He's on the slow side (4.62 40), though it didn't stop him from making big plays last year (four catches of 40-plus yards on 61 targets). Matthews has moderate upside should he supplant the pedestrian Kendall Wright as the top possession WR or Green-Beckham, who has a nagging hamstring injury, in the red zone.

2015

In three seasons with the Dolphins, Matthews has 64 receptions, 734 yards, and four touchdowns. While those aren't exactly lofty figures, the Dolphins completely revamped their receiving corps after trading Mike Wallace to Minnesota, cutting Brian Hartline, and refusing to match Buffalo’s offer sheet to TE Charles Clay this offseason. As a result, there will be fresh opportunities for targets this season, but Matthews will still have to compete with rookie first-rounder DeVante Parker, offseason additions Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings, as well as promising second-year wideout Jarvis Landry. Knowing that, Matthews could find himself playing for another team before next season starts.

2014

The former seventh round pick didn't look out of place in the NFL last season, and while he doesn't have the size or speed to make a big impact the Dolphins also didn't do a whole lot in the offseason to upgrade their receiving corps, or for that matter their quarterbacking situation. Matthews will have to fight off second round pick Jarvis Landry for the no. 3 spot on the depth chart, with the prize being the scraps of a lackluster passing game.

2013

Matthews had just 11 receptions for 151 yards last season and is not expected to be an integral part of the Dolphins' passing game in 2013.

2012

As much as I hate to beat a dead horse it goes without saying that the Miami receiving corps is the weakest unit on the team. There will be opportunities for just about anyone to make an impact, including Matthews who was a seventh round pick in this past April's draft.
