Ryan Mathews finally posts another good fantasy game

San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Matthews has stayed healthy this year - Kevork Djansezian

San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews rushed fourteen times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews rushed fourteen times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Mathews added two catches for 10 yards. Good games for Mathews have been few and far between but he did manage to score twice in the past 3 games. On the year, Mathews has 164 carries for 721 yards and three touchdowns. He is averaging 4.4 yards per carry.

Fantasy impact: Mathews hasn't consistently produced this year for fantasy owners but at least he has managed to stay healthy. He is also getting the majority of the carries out of the backfield with Danny Woodhead doing his primary damage in the passing game. It's difficult to trust Mathews as a solid fantasy start given the numbers. The Chargers will face the Cincinnati Bengals and their punishing defense in Week 13. The Bengals are giving up the fourth least fantasy points to running backs.
