This call has lots to do with a certain 11 receptions for 120 yards and two-touchdown performance, but not solely. Matthews entered the lineup following slot receiver Brandon Gibson's season-ending injury. Clearly, Ryan Tannehill likes throwing to that position - having limited time to get off throws might have something to do with that. Don't forget that Gibson scored three touchdowns in his last two games before his knee went kaput. Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace remain Miami's top two wide outs, but that's based on name and contracts, not production. Then factor in the Dolphins will face a San Diego defense allowing the third most fantasy points to WRs and Mathews makes for a WR3 play in Week 11.

Early in his career with the Seahawks, John Carlson had the look of fantasy TE1, not to mention a quality NFL player with at least 50 receptions in each of his first two seasons. Admittedly, that version hasn't been around since 2009, but we saw glimpses Thursday night when in place of Kyle Rudolph; Carlson went for 98 yards and a score on seven receptions. The starting job remains his with Rudolph out for a while. As long as Christian Ponder remains in the starting lineup, the tight end position will receive targets. Now Carlson has a revenge date in Week 11 against Seattle. The matchup is so-so at best and Carlson's remaining schedule is tough-ish, but considering the weak field of TE2 options, owners could certainly take a flyer.
