The Fresno State product has been one of the bigger disappointments on the year with 475 rushing yards and one total TD in his seven games. He still has a respectable 4.2 yards-per-carry average this year and it's mostly been Norv Turner getting in his way.
Fantasy Impact: It has not been fun to own Mathews this year and his owners are going to be scratching their heads on whether or not they should take a chance on him. Norv Turner has given Jackie Battle more carries than anyone expected.
The fact of the matter is that the Broncos are 6-3 on a four-game winning streak thanks to their 30.1 points per game. San Diego should need Mathews play-making ability and we'd start him, but make sure you have an emergency option for the late game.
