Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 8: Rishard Matthews a risky play vs. Jaguars

The Titans have several receivers who can make a fantasy impact, but guessing which one it will be each week is risky.

The Tennessee Titans offense has gotten good production from several wide receivers, but none of them has produced on a week-to-week basis.

Rishard Matthews is a good example as he has been a solid option in the passing game with 23 grabs for 319 yards and two scores this season. However, he has failed to hit the 100-yard mark in a game.

Matthews has scored in two of the past three games and done just enough to stay fantasy-relevant. The Titans hope that continues in Week 8 when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Matthews as the 51st-best wide receiver in Week 8. He faces a Jaguars defense allowing the seventh-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

Matthews might be a decent play if a lot of your other receivers are on bye weeks and/or injured, but try to keep him on the bench this week.
