Fantasy Impact: With the dearth of elite running backs in today's NFL, if Mathews can stay healthy he should be a solid RB2. The offensive coordinator stating that he will be the "primary workhorse" should help clear up any fears that he will lose touches to addition Donald Brown. 2014 is a contract year so he will be extra motivated to put up big numbers to get one last pay day.

Mathews might suddenly be one of the most underrated RBs in the league. Odd how that worked out.

Set career-highs in carries (285), games played (16) and yards (1255) in 2013.

Ryan Mathews proved to the fantasy community that he can be the player everyone thought he could be. It only took a few years and countless tears from fantasy owners. All signs point to good things... but you know the risk is still there.

Ryan Mathews rumbled his way to a post-hype breakout last season and should see 250 plus touches though he will lose work on valuable passing downs.

He is such a risky pick due to his injury history. He has upside, but don't draft him too early.

Ups and downs characterize the short careers of Ryan Mathews and Doug Martin. Both have penetrated the RB1 class. Both have triggered massive migraines. In this cage-match to the death, Brad Evans and Andy Behrens beat one another to a bloddy pulp over who you should draft.  Sound the bell ...  The Noise, naturally, professes his renewed love for Mathews:  Well, well, well … ...

Mathews had a surprising season with 1,444 yards from scrimmage and seven total touchdowns, making him the 12th ranked fantasy back in 2013. An awful injury history makes me skeptical that he will repeat that in 2014, but the Chargers offense is on the rise and he has a boatload of talent. The signing of free agent RB Donald Brown could also zap his fantasy upside.
