Anticipate a very large workload versus the Steelers. Despite preseason concerns over West stealing some touches, Tate appears to be locked in as an every down guy.

- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF

Tough to love him on the road here, especially since the Chargers appear to want to use all 3 running backs.

- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF

The Steelers were only 21st against fantasy running backs, but Tate is going to be facing 11 in the box the way QB Brian Hoyer has been throwing the ball.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

 
Is going to have a nice role right off the bat but Steelers aren't going to be dominated.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Mathews could get fed and score if the Chargers dictate the pace, but AZ was suffocating against the run last year.
