Jets' Rishard Matthews: May be utilized Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews is a candidate to earn snaps Sunday in Chicago with Quincy Enunwa (ankle) sidelined and Robby Anderson (ankle) doubtful to play, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ.com reports.

With the aforementioned duo expected to be out of commission this weekend, the Jets are particularly thin at wideout. Aside from Jermaine Kearse, only Andre Roberts (eight targets) and Deontay Burnett (two) have been on the receiving end of passes from Sam Darnold, Among the rest of the skill positions, Chris Herndon (16), Isaiah Crowell (13) and Eric Tomlinson (10) are the only healthy options that sit in the double-digits in terms of targets. While Matthews has only been with the team since Tuesday, he may be forced to run routes due to the lack of available options. Prior to his release from the Titans last month, he had just three catches (on six targets) for 11 yards. However, Matthews is just two years removed from a 65-945-9 line on 108 targets.

Jets' Rishard Matthews: Reaches deal with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews agreed to a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Matthews had been on the market for almost a month after requesting his release from the Titans and took longer than anticipated to find work for a player just two years removed from a 65-catch, nine-touchdown campaign. After working out with the Jets earlier Tuesday, Matthews apparently made a positive impression, as the team acted quickly to bring him onto the 53-man roster. He'll provide immediate relief to a banged-up wideout corps that recently released an injured Terrelle Pryor (groin) and could be without Quincy Enunwa (ankle) for additional games. Matthews will likely report to the team for practice Wednesday and should have enough time to get up to speed with the playbook prior to Sunday's game against the Bears. The 29-year-old could immediately contend for a regular role in three-wideout sets, with Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse representing the only healthy, established options in the receiver ranks.

Rishard Matthews: Working out for Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews will work out for the Jets on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Since asking for and gaining his release from the Titans in late September, Matthews reportedly has drawn interest from a number of teams and even worked out for one of them (the Browns). The Jets would give Matthews a chance to contribute immediately with Quincy Enunwa out for multiple weeks due to a high-ankle sprain and Terrelle Pryor dealing with a groin injury. At 29 years old, Matthews is just two seasons removed from posting a career-best line of 65-945-9 on 108 targets, so he could be a modest placeholder while the Jets' receiving corps gets back to full health.

Rishard Matthews: Set to work out for Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns are slated to work out Matthews on Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Since dealing Josh Gordon to the Patriots, the Browns have been on the lookout for veteran wideout help to add depth behind Jarvis Landry and to complement rookie Antonio Callaway. Matthews could therefore be a decent fit with the Browns, and if he does sign, there could be a path to targets for him once he absorbs the team's playbook.

Rishard Matthews: Hires agent, hopes to sign soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews has drawn interest from multiple teams since being released by the Titans last week and is expected to sign with a club soon, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Matthews had been representing himself in his conversations with teams, but he's since hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent, presumably with the hope of expediting the signing process. Given that he's just two years removed from a 945-catch, nine-touchdown season, it's not a surprise that Matthews reportedly has plenty of suitors. It's less clear, however, if any of the interested parties envision using him as a starter or a depth option at wideout, which would obviously have significant implications for his fantasy outlook.
