News: Matthews caught all three of his targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Bucs. Impact: Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace started, while Matthews and Brandon Gibson both saw significant work with the first-team offense. The Dolphins may not have a true No. 1 wide receiver, but they appear to have excellent depth, with Gibson, Matthews and second-round rookie Jarvis Landry all in the mix for playing time behind the starters. While Gibson is the favorite to see most of the playing time in the slot, Matthews appears to be hot on his heels, and Landry was drafted in the second round for a reason. Gibson caught two passes for 28 yards on three targets in Saturday's game, and Landry hauled in his only target for 26 yards.(RotoWire, )

News: Matthews caught two passes for 40 yards on three targets in Friday's preseason opener against the Falcons. Impact: Though both of Matthews' receptions came from the arm of Ryan Tannehill, the 24-year-old wideout stayed in with the backups. Matthews only got the start because Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline were held out, but he did make the most of his opportunity. Matthews and second-round rookie Jarvis Landry are hoping to push Brandon Gibson for the No. 3 wide receiver role. Gibson caught both of his targets, including one for a touchdown, while Landry had a quiet first half.(RotoWire, )
