Minny D not what it once was but Zimmer should have them playing more disciplined. Stacy should get plenty of volume, though.
Mathews could get fed and score if the Chargers dictate the pace, but AZ was suffocating against the run last year.

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

The Vikings were a substandard run defense last year. They completely revamped their defensive line, but I still think it is a favorable matchup for Stacy and he should see the ball 20 plus times, despite reports that the Rams plan to go with a hot hand approach at running back..
