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
Since the Chargers selected Mathews with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2010 draft, the underachieving and injury-prone runner has accumulated just one 1,000-yard season (2011), five 100-yard games and a fill-in Pro Bowl appearance (2011) on his NFL résumé. Last season, Mathews astonishingly broke both collarbones, which forced him to miss San Diego’s first two games and last two of the season. When healthy, the talented dual-threat Mathews averaged 19 total touches and 80 total yards per contest, but he found the end zone just once. The Chargers have a new front office and coaching staff in place, which is why Mathews, who is a relic of the A.J. Smith/Norv Turner regime, is facing a make-or-break season. Although Mathews is expected to receive the bulk of the first- and second-down carries while running behind a revamped offensive line, new passing-down specialist Danny Woodhead will command a large share of the third-down work. Mathews never has scored more than seven total touchdowns in a season, and he also has missed games due to injuries in five of the last six years dating back to his college days at Fresno State. While Mathews has plenty of upside as a fantasy RB3, he comes with plenty of risk, too.

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

Draft Analysis
Round 4, Pick 11
RB1 on great passing offense, so shouldn't have to deal with stacked run defense. Capable receiver for PPR
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)
