[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="500"] Ryan Matthews performance against the Saints had his fantasy owners flying high.[/caption]

Chargers head coach Norv Turner indicated that RB Ryan Mathews’ weekly workloads will increase back to the full-time variety following Sunday’s loss to New Orleans, saying “I expect him to be one of the league’s leading rushers.” “Ryan was outstanding,” Turner said following Mathews’ 139-total yard, one-score effort in which he was ultimately underutilized. “Everything I’ve said about him in the offseason, every time he’s had adversity, he’s come back stronger.

People want to count him out or say, ‘Hey, you can’t count on this guy,’ but he’s come back stronger.” Sounds like the question of who’s the starting running back in San Diego has finally been answered.

Matthews broke out against the Saints on Sunday Night Football with a standout performance as he posted 25.9 fantasy points in standard point per reception leagues with 12 carries for 80 yards to go along with six receptions for 59 yards and a rushing touchdown.

If Matthews ends up getting the football as much as Turner says he is going to give it to him, he will be an elite fantasy running back, particularly in point per reception formats.
