Strength of Schedule
Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Mathews finally put together a 16-game campaign last season and had career highs in carries, as well as rushing yards, on his way to a top 20 finish. The season was not completely without injury, as Mathews suffered an ankle sprain in Week 16 that would hamper him throughout the playoffs. He will be fine for offseason work and training camp but he will also face more competition for touches. While Chargers GM Tom Telesco has stated that Mathews will remain the "bell cow," but recently signed Donald Brown will certainly cut into his touches. On the plus side, Mathews showed a nose for the end zone punching in three one-yard plunges down the stretch last season and should remain the goal line option. Mathews is in a contract year and that added incentive should bolster his efforts in this campaign. He is a solid RB2 heading into 2014.

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

San Diego Chargers Team Talk
He needs to be banished from the "stud" list. after 7 weeks, he's only had 1 game with less than 2 turnovers and there's not been a single week when he was a top 12 QB. I was hoping the return of Antonio Gates would give him a bump, but ...
 
Only Norv could play at home against one of the worst teams on the NFL and almost get beat. Terrible game plan. They should have one by 20 or more! Wow....
 
So how does everyone feel about the 2011 Chargers? playoff team? possible contender for Super Bowl? Or not even make the playoffs? IMO they'll make the playoffs as long as the special teams doesnt stink it up like last season. Have a chance to go ...
 
Hey San Diegans.... Is LaBoy starting for the Chargers at OLB this season? Sure would be helpful information for my IDP fantasy league. Many thanks from a person born in Redondo Beach now living in Charleston, SC...
 
In hindsight, and with the perspective of a concerned father, Antonio Cromartie's meltdown Sunday in Denver is less surprising. If no more acceptable. "I take fault for it," Cromartie said. "I played like straight trash." Two ...

Average Draft Position (ADP) Tracker
Draft Analysis
Round 4, Pick 11
Positives
RB1 on great passing offense, so shouldn't have to deal with stacked run defense. Capable receiver for PPR
Negatives
Tolbert will steal goal line work, and should be committee situation Pass protection concerns last year
Draft Strategy
I was hoping Felix Jones would fall, but he went the pick before me. I really needed a RB2 here, Matthews, Moreno, Blount, Wells were around. Vernon Davis was available, but I would most likely be making back to back RB picks, since I think there's value farther down in TE this year. I might have been better off with Blount here, but I was too tempted at Matthews ADP being so much higher. I should have looked more closely. (Contributed by: fungalreason)
