2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a few seasons of fantasy disappointment, Ryan Mathews finally showed glimpses of what made him a first-round draft pick back in 2010. Mathews recorded career-high numbers in rushing yards (1,255) and total touchdowns (7). This all happened despite a dreadful start to the season, rushing for an average of just 47 yards per game through the first five games of the year. He was able to change that around, however, as the Chargers offense became more balanced and he finished with an average of 93 yards per game through the final 11 games. Best yet, Mathews was finally able to shed the label of being injury-prone, as he played in all 16 games for the first time in his career. Mathews could complete another quality fantasy season, but Donald Brown joins the already crowded backfield, bumping Mathews down to a mid-level RB2 in most formats.

Chargers' backfield "a three-headed monster"
Mathews coming off career season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 4, 3:55 pm

San Diego Chargers
Ryan Mathews calls it “the three-headed monster.” It could perhaps also be called unprecedented. In NFL history, only the 2012 Carolina Panthers - after signing Mike Tolbert - could arguably boast three running backs coming off a season as productive as the Mathews-Danny Woodhead-Donald Brown trio. It will be the same thing this year. Mathews (will be) the workhorse, Woodhead the versatile guy who can run and catch, Brown the sort of hybrid of the two. Said Chargers running backs coach Ollie Wilson: “There is no such thing as a featured back any more.” (San Diego Union-Tribune)

FFToday's Take: The Chargers figure to enter the season as a run-heavy team, but those plans may have to change based on San Diego's difficult schedule - one that includes the NFC West. Not only should owners remember Mathews is still an injury risk, they should also consider his difficult schedule. Woodhead is going to see the majority of passing-down snaps while Brown should steal a few other carries. In short, Mathews is a poor bet to match last season's production.
