Ryan Mathews bulking up

San Diego Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews made quick cuts in consecutive bursts to the end zone. He looks to have gained muscle and weighs 222 pounds, up seven from last August.

Fantasy Impact: 

From Week 6 on, Ryan Mathews was the #10 RB in fantasy. He averaged 21.5 touches for 104 yards and 0.55 TD over the remainder of the regular season, but petered out in the playoffs after suffering a high ankle sprain. Heading into 2014 fantasy drafts, his stock will be interesting to watch given how many owners he has burned in the past, and Danny Woodhead’s presence doesn’t help matters — he will continue to limit Mathews’ involvement in the passing game. Still, he has finished as a RB1 in two of the last three seasons and GM Tom Telesco confirmed that he is still the team’s “bell cow” RB despite adding Donald Brown to the mix.
