Rishard Matthews injury update: WR probable, will play for fantasy owners

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

The Dolphins' wide receiver will suit up in Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Rishard Matthews (back) is listed as probable and will play in the team's Week 13 game against the New York Jets. Matthews didn't miss any time in practice this week and will be good to go on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The team's slot man, Matthews broke out in Week 10 and dropped a 11/120/2 line out of nowhere. However, he has predictably returned to earth, playing the third receiving option on a team that struggles to make big plays in the passing game. Matthews wasn't able to do much last week, as he could only haul in three catches for two total yards. If fantasy owners have to resort to starting Matthews, they need to be aware that one of these underwhelming lines is a legitimate possibility in any given week. Matthews has actually proven to be a serviceable slot option. It is his lack of targets that owners need to be aware of.

Matthews has a favorable match up in the Jets, who specialize in stopping the run. Owners still shouldn't get overly excited. Matthews is a good bet for three to four catches, but owners can't expect much else. He's a WR4 in PPR leagues.
