Chargers running back Ryan Mathews turned in his best performance of the season against the Saints on Sunday, rushing for 80 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and catching six passes for 59 yards.Fantasy Spin:Mathews had 1,546 yards from scrimmage on 272 touches last season, so he can certainly contribute in multiple phases of the game. While Jackie Battle has taken away some of Mathews' work due to the latter back's fumbling issues, Mathews is simply the more talented back and is the player to own in fantasy. Battle only had four carries on Sunday.

San Diego Chargers Atari Bigby went to the "University of Jah Rastafari" (Video)

One of my favorite parts of Sunday Night Football has to be the player introductions since some of the NFL talent have become pretty creative with where their went to college/high school. During tonight's Chargers/Saints affair, San Diego's Atari Bigby decided to let his Rastafari flag fly: After taking a gander at his Wikipedia page, Atari was born in Jamaica and chose...

DA BEARS!

Top pick this week was DA BEARS. Bears win 41-3. Enough said. No pick for Sunday Night. San Diego Chargers @ New Orleans Saints (-3.5) is a toss up to me. If you want to play it, you’re better off flipping a coin. I’m taking the Chargers +3.5 in the pick ‘em league, but not putting my money on it. I already made a killing thanks to DA BEARS and stand to gain even more if I...
