"When he's running the way he's running now, that's what you'd like to see: more decisive," offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said. "He got more opportunities. He actually had been doing a good job for us those short yardage plays, he's been very effective. We get him back to the line of scrimmage and he's been able to power his way over some people and make the first down for us, keep us on the field."

RB | Ryan Mathews | San Diego Chargers | Injury, Fantasy

"It definitely opens it up," said Mendenhall, who averages 22 carries per game - seven more than a season ago. "You can't play strictly run, you can't play strictly pass. When you're able to get a defense off balance, it's good for the run and pass as well. Ben adds those big plays in the passing game, so we'll have that dynamic as well."
