Miami Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews shined on Monday Night Football - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews caught eleven passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns on Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Rishard Matthews caught eleven passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns on Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The second year player was targeted fourteen times and made the most of his opportunities. With the inconsistent Mike Wallace struggling and Brandon Gibson lost for the year, Matthews is a bright spot in the Dolphins receiving corp. Going into the game, Matthews had caught ten passes for 117 yards and no touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Matthews is an intriguing young player who certainly looks good under the bright lights of Monday Night Football. He is owned in about  1% of all fantasy leagues and is looking very much like he is stash-worthy at the least. If you are looking for wide receiver help, grab him while you can. Matthews should be the number two option right now at the least. The Dolphins will face the San Diego Chargers in Week 11. They are giving up the 4th most fantasy points to wide receivers right now.
