Past Fantasy Outlooks
Matthews is perhaps best known for his performance against the Patriots in Super Bowl 49 when he broke out for 109 yards and a score. He hasn't been heard from much since that game with a total of two regular season receptions since the start of 2015. After spending all of last season on IR, Matthews has a chance to see the field this season in light of Baltimore's attrition among pass catchers. Matthews (6-5, 228) has the size to create matchup issues against smaller defenders, but he'll likely also need to make an impact on special teams in order to crack the 53-man roster. Even if Matthews makes the final roster, he'd likely do so as the Ravens No. 6 wideout.
It's not often that a player's breakout performance comes in the Super Bowl, but that's what happened to Matthews last year when he led the team with four catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Super Bowl after playing just 19 offensive snaps in three regular-season games. It remains a mystery why it was so hard for the 6-foot-5 Matthews to get on the field, especially considering the Seahawks' tallest regular wideout was 6-foot-1. He certainly has the team's eye now and could be in line for a bigger role this season. Matthews doesn't have great speed, but his size allows him to outmuscle defensive backs and high-point the ball even when he can't get separation, something the Seahawks have sorely lacked the last few years. He should easily step into the No. 3 receiver role, though the addition of Jimmy Graham will likely limit his upside at the goal-line.
Matthews spent the last two seasons in the CFL, but his one asset -- he's 6-5 -- is something that could land him a shot down the road.
