Matthews has flex value against a Rams D that allows the 9th fewest points to fantasy running backs.

I like how Mathews looked last week in his return but I like the St. Louis Rams defense a little more. The Rams have been playing great and should be able to control the clock and not give Mathews and company much time on the field.
