Mathews enters the Chargers’ game against Denver this week coming off his fourth 100-yard rushing game of the season. He had 29 carries for 103 yards with a touchdown in Sunday’s 37-14 win over the Giants. He also caught three passes on four targets for 32 yards.
A solid RB2 option, Mathews is the bell cow in this offense. He sees consistent carries, handles short-yardage situations and has emerged as a decent receiver out of the backfield. He was held to just 59 yards rushing, but did have a touchdown, in the teams’ first meeting.
