Ryan Mathews a potential salary cap casualty

Philadephia Eagles beat writer Paul Domowitch believes running back Ryan Mathews "probably has played his last game" with the team.

Fantasy Impact

Mathews, who hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2013, a feat he only accomplished once, could become a salary cap casualty for the Eagles this offseason. He is due a $4 million salary in 2017, his walk year. Playing in 13 games last season, Mathews compiled 661 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns on the ground while catching 13 targets for 115 yards and a touchdown as a receiver. Barring a pay-cut, Mathews is unlikely to play out the final year of his deal in Philadelphia.

Ryan Mathews placed on IR

The Philadelphia Eagles placed running back Ryan Mathews (neck) on the injured reserve list Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

After a year filled with injuries, Mathews was placed on IR Tuesday with his latest ailment - a herniated disc in his neck - ending his season. He'll finish 2016 with 776 total yards and nine touchdowns in 13 games played. His future with the Eagles is in question entering the 2017 offseason.

Ryan Mathews has herniated disc, will miss Week 17

Ryan Mathews has a herniated disc in his back according to Doug Pederson. He will miss Week 17 with the injury.

Fantasy Impact

Mathews was clearly bothered by the injury on Thursday night, but did his best to fight his way through it. The injury leaves the Eagles with just two healthy running backs on their active roster - Darren Sproles and Byron Marshall. Expect Sproles to get an increase in workload next week against the Cowboys.

Ryan Mathews erupts for 128 yards and a touchdown

Ryan Mathews had 20 carries for 128 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' loss to the Ravens. He also had one reception for five yards.

Fantasy Impact

Mathews saved his best work for what was the fantasy semifinals in most leagues. Mathews' monster game likely helped many fantasy owners reach their championship games in Week 16. While it is unclear yet whether Darren Sproles will be cleared for Thursday night's game against the Giants, it will not greatly impact Mathews' role. Fantasy owners can safely start Mathews as an RB2 next week, as he is expected to once again get the bulk of the carries.
