Matthews caught nine of 13 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews saw no decline in performance despite the downgrade at quarterback from Marcus Mariota (leg) to Matt Cassel. He was kept out of the end zone in his first four games with the Titans, but scored nine times in the last 12. With Mariota scheduled to be back from his broken fibula by the beginning of next season, Matthews will have a great chance to build on this 65-catch, 945-yard campaign.

Matthews caught three of nine targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 38-17 loss to the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews scored from three yards out in the second quarter, giving him eight touchdowns this season. He has doubled his scoring output from two to four to eight over his past three campaigns, but continuing that trend with 16 next season will be a tall order for the 27-year-old wideout. Quarterback Marcus Mariota broke his fibula in the second half, so Matthews will be catching balls from backup Matt Cassel in the season finale against Houston.

Matthews caught four of 10 passes for 105 yards Sunday in Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews was the leading receiver for a Titans passing offense that was kept out of the end zone for the second straight week. He has now topped 100 receiving yards twice while catching a career-high seven touchdowns in his first season with the Titans. Quarterback Marcus Mariota has struggled over the past two weeks, but his No. 1 wide receiver is still producing on a weekly basis.

Matthews caught just one of three targets for 26 yards Sunday against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

It was an off day for this passing game as a whole, with nobody hauling in more than two passes as quarterback Marcus Mariota threw for just 88 yards. Matthews has become Mariota's go-to wide receiver after taking a few weeks to build chemistry early on, and that role should bear more fruit moving forward than it did here.

Matthews turned seven targets into three catches for 64 yards and a touchdown Sunday in Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews caught just one of his four first-half targets, but that one was a 29-yard touchdown. The former Dolphins wide receiver got off to a slow start with his new team, but has really come on of late with seven touchdowns in the past eight weeks. He led the team in both targets and yards here, and he has emerged as the primary weapon in a passing offense that has accounted for multiple scores in every game since Week 5.

Matthews hauled in nine of 13 targets for 122 yards Sunday in Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews led the team in targets, catches and yards as quarterback Marcus Mariota eclipsed 35 passing attempts for just the fourth time all season. The former Dolphins wideout set a season high in yardage, and has now eclipsed 60 yards in three consecutive games. Couple that yardage output with Matthews' four touchdowns in the past four weeks, and you get an excellent all-around option at the receiver position.

Mathews caught three of five targets for 63 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews has four touchdowns during a three-game scoring streak, and has now found pay dirt six times in his last six games. Marcus Mariota's No. 1 wide receiver is thriving due to the second-year signal caller's improvement, and has worked his way into the every week starter discussion. He was one of five Titans to score a receiving touchdown in this 47-25 victory, as their passing game continues to thrive.

Matthews hauled in six of his team-leading 10 targets for 63 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 43-35 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

That's five touchdowns in the past five weeks for the former Dolphins wideout. It took Matthews a while to build a rapport with quarterback Marcus Mariota after coming over in the offseason, but he has undoubtedly emerged as the team's go-to wide receiver. Look for him to continue his success over the season's second half as Mariota is allowed to air the ball out more.

Matthews secured all four of his targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 36-22 win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old continues to be an afterthought in the minds of many within a Titans offense dominated by Marcus Mariota, DeMarco Murray and Delanie Walker, but he's quietly crossed the goal line in three of the past four games. While he doesn't offer a ton of upside, he's also tallied 70 yards or more in two games this season and hauled in 27 of 38 targets overall, making him a very dependable option for Mariota in the short-to-intermediate passing game.

Matthews turned seven targets into four catches for 37 yards Sunday against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews led Titans wide receivers in targets and tied for te lead in catches, but played second fiddle to tight end Delanie Walker. Walker is the only member of Tennessee's passing game that can be trusted on a week to week basis, as quarterback Marcus Mariota often doesn't have the volume or effectiveness to support multiple viable receiving options.
