Ryan Mathews has broken clavicle, fantasy season is over

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Ryan Mathews broke his clavicle bone and his season is over. We break down the fantasy implications.

Michael Gehlken of the San Diego UT reports that Chargers RB Ryan Mathews broke his left clavicle and is done for the season. Mathews went to the locker room midway through the Chargers' blowout loss and never returned. He broke his other clavicle during the preseason.

Mathews will finish his season with just 685 rushing yards, one touchdown and 3.8 YPC.

Fantasy Impact: Mathews' disappointing fantasy season was almost poetic--he started it with a broken clavicle, and ends it with a broken clavicle. It was just a lost season overall, and he burned many fantasy owners who drafted him in the first round.

The former first-round pick is running out of time to shake off the "bust" label.
