Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
When Mathews was given the starter's load of carries, he produced as a RB1. But he may not hold the keys to the car here in 2016. There's a lot of whispers of a committee approach and the idea of Sproles being listed as the starter has been brought up as well. Mathews should be rolled out this week but the leash will be very short. If Sproles posts RB1 numbers and Mathews is simply a change of pace, his in season value could take a sudden and violent hit.
Rushing: 34 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 16 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
See if this sounds familiar: Ryan Mathews is the lead running back for a team with an enigmatic quarterback, an incredibly young, and unproven WR corps, an aging but still effective tight end, and an undersized backfield running mate who specializes in catching the ball and being the most elusive player on the field. Perhaps the only part of this scenario that doesn't seem like deja vu is the glaring fact that the city of Philadelphia will never be mistaken for San Diego. So if you've seen this before, and have a bit of hesitance in trusting your 2016 fantasy hopes with Ryan Mathews, it makes sense. But maybe, just maybe, this is the year that Mathews stays healthy and shows owners just what he can do with a full 16-game slate. He did, after all, run circles around last year's starter, DeMarco Murray, averaging five yards per carry on just 106 rushes, while also adding 20 catches for 146 yards. These numbers also occurred while the roof was caving in on the Chip Kelly regime, which may be a testament to the potential Mathews still has in the league. Fantasy owners can play it safe and view Mathews as no more than an RB3, but those who watched him last year know that he has high-RB2 potential and can be had at a cheap price come draft day. Just. Stay. Healthy. He'll also need to dispel head coach Doug Pederson's notion that this is a committed backfield by putting some distance between himself, Darren Sproles and rookie Wendell Smallwood.

Rushing: 1150 Yards, 7 TD.
Receiving: 36 Receptions, 210 Yards, 2 TD.
