The Scores Report:
In two years, Mathews has missed an average of three games per season, which is roughly a quarter of the NFL season. In an average 14 week fantasy season, these missed games are even more significant. Additionally, he’s been a top 10 running back each of the last two years and failed to produce- what is different this year?
Regardless of that, Mathews is being drafted on average as the fourth overall running back selected. By not re-signing Mike Tolbert, it clears the way for Mathews to be a workhorse running back- but, the signings of Ronnie Brown and Jackie Battle show you that even the Chargers brain trust isn’t convinced.
So as a fantasy player, why should you be? Especially when you can get MJD, Matt Forte or Steven Jackson instead- proven commodities who are being drafted after him.

Instead of a lightening bolt logo as the team logo, it might be more appropriate if they changed it to a question mark.
Head to the internet or listen to radio and TV, and you're certain to hear...
I love the fans Juan…
Philip Rivers apparently had a great day of practice and onlookers were signing his praises when it came to his accuracy. Many thought he had an injury early in the 2011 season, but he had a much better second half. I’m thinking bounce back season.
