Should San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) be unable to play Sunday, Jan. 12, against the Denver Broncos, RB Ronnie Brown and RB Danny Woodhead would likely split carries once again, much as they did last week when Mathews left the game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) "will go if he can go" against the Denver Broncos in the divisional round this weekend. RBs Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown would pick up the slack if Mathews can't play.

The San Diego Chargers have trusted RB Ryan Mathews despite a fumble inside the red zone in the team's Week 2 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Mathews has now fumbled eight times in his career and three times inside the red zone. Despite his fumble last weekend, Mathews played in the second half, although RBs Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown split carries. Mathews was absent for the team's hurry-up drive because of his inability to prove he can hang onto the football. "You're going to play, you're going to make a mistake," head coach Mike McCoy said of his words to Mathews. "You just keep going, don't worry about the last play. Philip (Rivers) has made a mistake, there's going to be a bad call, I'll make a poor decision somewhere. You do something, keep going. The future is now, just keep playing." Mathews carried the ball 16 times for 73 yards against the Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: It's great news for Mathews owners that the new coaching staff has more patience for his ball-security issues. However, if this keeps up, Woodhead and Brown will surely see more carries. Woodhead has more upside and should be owned in most leagues, especially if it's a point-per-reception setup.

San Diego Chargers RB Ronnie Brown (rest) was given a day off Thursday, Aug. 1, but he was back on the practice field Friday, Aug. 2.

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said he wants to use multiple running backs this season and will use the hot hand at the position. "That's the big thing. Play the hot hand while you roll. If you've got to tap out for a play or two, we'll put the next guy in," McCoy said. RB Ryan Mathews has worked with the first-team and second-team offense during practice and is part of a rotation with RBs Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown.
Fantasy Tip: It would appear Mathews will be the starting running back entering the season but could lose carries to Woodhead and Brown because the coaches want to keep all three fresh. Mathews should be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back this season. Woodhead can be a No. 3 running back in point-per-reception leagues and a No. 4 running back in non-PPR leagues. Brown could be a No. 5 running back in deeper leagues.

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy wants RB Ryan Mathews to be the guy in 2013. McCoy said the depth the team added when they signed RBs Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown was not a reflection on Mathews. McCoy has one message for Mathews; "To have a great year and be the guy."

It seems as though the San Diego Chargers have come to grips with the fact that RB Ryan Mathews won't be the stud three-down running back they envisioned when they traded up to select him 12th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. RB Danny Woodhead has been very impressive in offseason workouts, and The San Diego Union Tribune's Michael Gehlken thinks Woodhead will be a big part of the Bolts' running attack, taking valuable repetitions away from Mathews.
Fantasy Tip: Mathews will fall far in this year's fantasy football drafts, with good reason. He'll probably have to plummet to RB3 range to have any real profit potential, though, since Woodhead and Ronnie Brown will likely steal touches from him in passing situations.
