2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
After sharing the running back duties with Mike Tolbert last season, Mathews appears ready to take over a workhorse back role with San Diego in 2012. Tolbert signed with Carolina as a free agent and the Chargers will enter the season with the uninspiring trio of Ronnie Brown, Le’Ron McClain and Curtis Brinkley in reserve behind Mathews. That should translate into plenty of touches for the talented Mathews. He enters the season having had a very productive 2011 with 1,545 total yards and six touchdowns despite missing two full games and playing nicked up in several others. Tolbert saw plenty of action last season both as a short yardage runner and the teams’ third down back, pilfering 10 touchdowns. Look for Mathews to assume most of that workload, giving him an opportunity to approach 2,000 total yards and reach double-digit touchdowns for the first time in his career. The only risk with Mathews is his penchant for getting hurt (six missed games over the first two years of his career) but reports out of San Diego indicate that he is in the best shape of his career. He is a legitimate RB1 in 2012 and likely to be amongst the top five fantasy producers at running back.

Murray, Mathews to divide workload     -- Thu Jun 4 3:50 pm --

Former 1,000-yard rushers likely to split carries in Philly
The Eagles plan on dividing the rushing workload between running backs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, a far cry from past years when LeSean McCoy carried the load. Eagles OC Pat Shurmur revealed the plan Wednesday although he declined to put a percentage on the way touches would be divvied up. “They’re two really fine players,” Shurmur said at a coaches availability. “They’re two guys that have been starters in places that they’ve been and they’re going to come here and kind of share the role.” (Delaware County Times)

FF Today's Take: Given the fact that part of HC Chip Kelly's uptempo offensive approach is about keeping the same defenders on the field play after play, he needs a pair of backs like Murray and Mathews to keep the other player fresh. Murray figures to be the leading rusher by a significant margin when all is said and done this year. However, it should come as no surprise if he tops out around 250 carries while Mathews ends up with around 150 carries if both players stay healthy. Both players could flirt with RB1 or flex value depending on the matchup and their injury status.
