  1. How can you say Rishard Matthews has become Tannehill’s favorite receiver after one game? Matthews only had 10 receptions going into Sunday’s game. He had no lt recorded more than 42 yards in any one game this season. I think it’s safe to say that Matthew’s performance against the worst team in football is an aberration.


    • When Brandon Gibson (now on IR) went down, Matthews became more valuable to Tannehill because as a slot receiver, he’s the closest to Tannehill who seldom has the time to throw downfield as the O-line cannot protect him. Before Brandon Gibson got injured a couple of weeks ago, Tannehill had thrown three touchdown passes to him vs the Patriots & the Bills. We think that Matthews ‘could’ now be THAT receiver for Tannehill. Just our hunch…


      • Gibson had 1 reception for 4 yards, and a touchdown against the Patriots. That is hardly fantasy relevant. Gibson has put up more than 7 points once all season, so THAT guy is pedestrian, at best. If you value your fantasy team, then don’t pick up Matthew’s.


      • He only had 1 reception in the Patriots game because he was carted off the field with a torn left patellar tendon early in the 1st quarter.
        We never said that Matthews will turn into the second coming of Jerry Rice; we’re only suggesting as a slot receiver (like Welker was to Brady), Tannehill could better utilize him on quick slants because he gets sacked so frequently. He is a strong WR3 going forward…nothing more.


    • Walker goes up against the Colts who give up the 12th fewest fantasy points to TE’s while coming off his best game of the season last week. Carlson will face the Seahawks AT Seattle and although he will get the start in place of Rudolph, that’s a tough place to play as you know. We would lean towards Delaine Walker with the choice you gave us. Good luck!
