Clay Matthews's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP WITH DOWNWARD TREND PROJECTED FOR 2019

Clay Matthews had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the number #89 ranked LB and the #542 ranked player overall. His ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #108 LB. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 5 games he averaged 4.4 fantasy points which was higher than his start (2 FP) and his ending average (3.3 FP). A late season drop-off might be expected given his age. His fantasy production is more volatile that most players based on having a relatively high standard deviation. When he is good, he is really good but when he is off, he is really off. He averaged 3.3 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 9 fantasy points. Clay Matthews (2019 Season Projection: 32 Solo, 15 Ast, 2.9 Sacks, 0.6 Fumrec, 1.4 PDs) is projected to take a significant step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #102 player at his position.
