Ryan Mathews Fantasy Value Is Still High With Chargers Trust

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Chargers still have faith in Ryan Mathews, according to Norv Turner. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Diego chose to sit Ryan Mathews for a large part of its matchup with Kansas City, but when he was given an opportunity to perform, he impressed everyone. Norv Turner said after the game the Chargers still have "great trust" in Mathews.

Fantasy Impact: It was a tough pill to swallow for Mathews owners seeing Jackie Battle take over as the starting running back. However, it's clear Mathews is a much more talented runner, and the Chargers were simply sending a message. Mathews kept a positive attitude about his situation, and assuming he can limit his turnovers going forward, there's no doubt he will continue to be a focal point of the offense. Now would be a good time to buy on Mathews from worried owners.
