Matthews, handed a bigger role in the offense, almost instantly put up a breakout game in Week 10 against Tampa, ripping off a massive 11-catch, 120-yard, two-touchdown game. But now he's a known quantity and opposing defenses will do what they can to take him away, especially in the middle of the field -- which is where Ryan Tannehill likes to throw the ball.
Despite that, Matthews should still get plenty of work out of the slot, where he's established now that Brandon Gibson is hurt. Tannehill doesn't really seem to like throwing to Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline only sees intermediate stuff, so Matthews could actually be Miami's de facto No. 1 receiver. We need to see more, but he should still be widely owned right now.
