San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews is hoping to finally be unleashed against the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune states that Mathews could get 25+ touches tonight as long as he does not fumble. Acee also notes that Mathews has 5.3 YPC against the Broncos in his career.
Mathews has 185 rushing yards, one TD and 5.1 YPC as he battled injuries and ball control issues.
Fantasy Impact: We should be wary of predicting things like touches because the game state is way too fluid to stick to an arbitrary number like that, but it's good to hear that Norv Turner is finally willing to let his workhorse back be a workhorse back.
Mathews is an easy RB1 talent and he should be starting in all fantasy leagues going forward.
