Ryan Mathews is questionable for Week 2 against the Titans. We beak down the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. Mathews hasn't played since breaking his collarbone on his first preseason snap. He was cleared for contact Thursday and got limited practice time in on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Mathews will probably be another game time decision this week - the Chargers waited until just before kickoff to declare him inactive last week. Once he's clear to play, he's an easy Top 5 fantasy RB, but the team is being cautious to rush him back, so wait until Sunday morning for a final decision. Ronnie Brown and Curtis Brinkley will likely be splitting carries again if he can't go.
