Miami receivers held in check Week 11


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Dolphins wide receivers Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews were barely factors in Miami's 20-16 defeat to Detroit in Week 10.

All three combined for four catches for 35 yards. Hartline had the most underwhelming performance of the three, and was limited to only one grab for 1 yard. Gibson caught all two of his targets for 20 yards, and Mathews caught his lone target for a gain of 14 yards.

The Dolphins will host the Bills in Week 11.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews made his only catch of the afternoon count for six in Sunday's victory over the Chargers in Week 9.

Matthews caught a pass from Ryan Tannehill and took it 21 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. It was his only target of the day in a 37-0 victory. He has six receptions for 68 yards and two scores this season.

Matthews caught a 3-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill late in the third quarter for his only catch of the afternoon. It was his first touchdown since Week 10 of last season. He has only five catches for 47 yards on the season.

Miami will take on the Chargers at home in Week 9.


Dolphins get minor contributions from several role players in London


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Dolphins received minor contributions from several role players in a convincing Week 4 win over the Raiders at Wembley Stadium.

Charles Clay and Rishard Matthews were each limited to two grabs. Clay caught passes for 15 and 17 yards in the first half and was held without a grab in the second half, finishing with 32 yards on four targets. Matthews finished with 27 yards.

Meanwhile, with the game well in hand, the Dolphins turned to Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa in the rushing attack. Williams took six carries for 23 yards, while Darkwa had two yards on four carries.


Miami's receiving corps held in check vs. Kansas City


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Dolphins receivers Jarvis Landry, Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews all failed to make much of an impact in a Week 3 loss at home to the Chiefs.

Landry outperformed Gibson was heavily targeted as the team's third receiver on the afternoon. He caught four of the seven passes thrown his way for 24 yards. Three of his four receptions came in the first half. Gibson was targeted four times but finished the day with only one grab for a gain of 4 yards.

Matthews caught a short pass for a gain of 13 yards late in the fourth quarter for his only catch and target of a 34-15 defeat.


Rishard Matthews on the way out of Miami?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/15/2014) Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews is on the outs with the team because of "losing focus" and "not learning as quickly as coaches want," the Miami Herald reported. It turns out Matthews isn't "a Joe Philbin favorite" despite catching 41 passes for 448 yards and two scores in limited playing time last season. 

The Dolphins drafted LSU receiver Jarvis Landry with a second-round pick, a sign the team is ready to move on from Matthews. 


Dolphins draft WR Jarvis Landry


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 63 pick in the NFL Draft, the Dolphins selected receiver Jarvis Landry from LSU.

Landry could compete to be the No. 3 receiver for the Dolphins this year behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline. He could challenge Brandon Gibson, Rishard Matthews and Armon Binns for playing time right away.

Landry had a big season in 2013 with 77 catches for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns. He isn't overly fast (he ran a 4.77 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine), but he does have good hands and is physical.


Dolphins receivers step up in finale


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Dolphins reserve wide receivers Rishard Matthews and Marlon Moore were pressed into extra action in Week 17 against the Jets, with Brian Hartline going down with a knee injury.

Matthews actually led the team in receiving yards in the game, as he hauled in four of the seven passes thrown his way for 58 yards. Moore was less productive, finishing with 25 yards on three catches in a 20-7 loss.


Rishard Matthews catches one ball in Week 16


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews barely made an impact Sunday, in a 19-0 loss to the Bills in Week 16. Matthews caught just one pass for 9 yards, and was only targeted twice in the game.

Matthews enters Week 17 against the Jets with 37 receptions for 390 yards and two touchdowns.  


Rishard Matthews gets involved in Week 15


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews had a solid effort in Week 15, his best game in five weeks in a 24-20 win over the Patriots.

Matthews was targeted nine times and brought in five of those passes. He finished the game with 64 yards, his second-best total of the season, with a long catch of 24 yards.

Matthews has topped 50 yards three times this season, and enters Week 16 against the Bills with 36 catches for 381 yards and two touchdowns. 


Rishard Matthews does little again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews continues to make little impact, as he was held to just one catch in a 34-28 win over the Steelers in Week 14. Matthews brought in one of the two passes thrown his way for 5 yards.

Matthews is now four games removed from his breakout, two-touchdown performance in Week 10 against the Buccaneers. In four games since, he has just 80 yards on 10 catches.

The Dolphins face the Patriots in Week 15. 


Rishard Matthews continues to do little


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews was held in check in Week 13 against the Jets, in a 23-3 win.

Though the Dolphins passed for 300 yards, Matthews went for just 21 on two receptions. He was targeted three times in the game.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Dolphins wide receivers Rishard Matthews (back) and Marlon Moore (hamstring) are both active and in uniform, as expected, for Week 13 against the Jets. Both players were listed on the injury report as probable for Sunday's game.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

They are guard Sam Brenner (knee), wide receivers Marlon Moore (hamstring) and Rishard Matthews (back), linebacker Koa Misi (knee), defensive lineman Jared Odrick (knee), running back Marcus Thigpen (wrist) and safety Jimmy Wilson (abdomen).


Rishard Matthews does little in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews was held in check in Week 12 against the Panthers, in a 20-16 loss.

Matthews caught just three passes for 2 yards in the game, while being targeted seven times. He nearly caught his third touchdown in as many games, but had the ball knocked loose on a play that drew a flag for an apparent personal foul.

Matthews broke out for 11 catches, 120 yards and two scores in Week 10, but has just seven catches for 54 yards in two games since. He will try to get back on track in Week 13 against the Jets. 


Rishard Matthews suits up vs. Panthers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews (back) is active and in uniform for Week 12 against the Panthers Sunday, as expected. 

Rishard Matthews just OK after breakout game last Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Dolphins emerging wideout Rishard Matthews didn't follow up his stunning Week 10 performance with another one, but he did contribute to his team's win over the Chargers on Sunday.

Matthews manged four receptions for 52 yards on six targets. He now has 15 catches for 172 yards in his last two games after snagging 10 for 117 yards in his first eight games combined. Matthews and his Dolphins await a visit from Carolina in Week 12.


Rishard Matthews could be strong new Fantasy weapon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews didn't inch his way onto the Fantasy radar Monday night. He sprinted onto it with an eye-opening performance against Tampa Bay. He more than doubled his season output in one eventful game with 11 catches for 120 yards and his first two touchdowns of the season.

Most encouraging for those lucky enough to have Matthews on their rosters our quick enough to have picked him up this week is that he should continue to receive an opportunity to play in the slot with Brandon Gibson sidelined.

Week 11 foe San Diego hasn't exactly been lights-out against the pass this year, ranking 28th in the NFL in yards allowed through the air with 2,516 and 31st in yards yielded per passing attempt at 7.5.

The Chargers will obviously be more aware of Matthews than were the Bucs and Fantasy owners certainly can't expect the same production this week. There are plenty of quality receivers on Fantasy rosters and one must be careful to commit to Matthews so soon. But he just might be a find and the matchup is favorable. He is a risk worth taking on Sunday, at least as a flex option.


Rishard Matthews scores first two NFL touchdowns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2013) Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews surpassed his career output in the Week 10 loss at Tampa Bay. Entering the game with 10 career catches for 117 yards and no touchdowns, Matthews erupted for 11 catches and 120 yards and two scores.

Playing in the slot for the injured Brandon Gibson, Matthews drew a game-high 14 targets as he repeatedly got open over the middle. The second-year Nevada product, a seventh-round pick, made eight catches for 77 yards in the first half, including a 6-yard score in the second quarter.

In the third, Matthews lined up wide, caught a short pass and scampered 19 yards for a touchdown. That was his longest gain of the night.

Matthews will try to stay hot Week 11 vs. the Chargers.


Rishard Matthews sees larger role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews stepped into the starting lineup with Brandon Gibson sidelined by a knee injury in Week 9 against the Bengals Thursday.

Matthews played a minor role despite his ascension to a starting role. He was targeted four times in the passing game, hauling in two passes for 24 yards.

The Dolphins face the Buccaneers in Week 10.  


Dolphins confident in Rishard Matthews


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said receiver Rishard Matthews is capable of filling the slot role formerly handled by Brandon Gibson. Gibson reportedly is out for the season with a torn patella tendon. 

"Gibson is a special player," Sherman said, via the Sun-Sentinel. "There's no question about that, but I think Matthews has really improved a lot in the last year. I never thought he'd end up being an inside receiver, but he's really developed as an outside and inside receiver, as has Gibson."

Sherman said he has a lot of confidence in Matthews, who caught three passes for 30 yards against the Patriots.


Injury opens up a spot for Rishard Matthews


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews saw extensive action in Week 8 against the Patriots, after Brandon Gibson went down with a knee injury.

Mathews was targeted six times for three catches, totaling 30 yards. He now has eight catches for 93 yards on the season.

Matthews could continue to see a larger role in the offense moving forward, as Gibson's injury seems significant. The Dolphins face the Bengals in Week 9 Thursday.  


Rishard Matthews held to one grab


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews, who had four catches in the Week 3 win over Atlanta, was held to one 21-yard grab against the Saints. Matthews was targeted twice in the loss.

He'll play the Ravens in Week 5.


Dolphins get several minor contributions Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) The Dolphins received minor offensive contributions from a few role players during Sunday's home opener against the Falcons in Week 3.

Wide receiver Rishard Matthews got his first action of the year as he caught all four of his targeted passes for 42 yards. Tight end Michael Egnew made his first career catch during Miami's game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. He finished with one catch for eight yards in a 27-23 victory.

Dolphins OK with having just four wide receivers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2013) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday he doesn't feel vulnerable with just four receivers -- Mike Wallace, Brandon Gibson, Brian Hartline and Rishard Matthews -- on the 53-man roster.

"Not necessarily, we have what we have right now," Philbin said, per the Sun-Sentinel, "and we’re good with what we have."

Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman echoed Philbin's sentiments.

"I think everybody wants one more of everything," Sherman said with a laugh. "I’ll take one more of whatever I can get at any time. I like the four that we have. It will serve us well."
