Noticeably to teammates, Chargers RB Ryan Mathews has been carrying an added confidence of late.
He's rushed 12 times for 64 yards through two exhibitions. While feeling faster physically, he said the game is slowing down mentally and that he's learned to trust his instincts more entering his fourth season.
Mathews gives credit to the offensive line, but it's still not expected to be a strong point of the team. While Mathews is clearly the most talented back, he'll still compete with Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown, leaving Mathews ranked at 27th among our RBs - a clear RB3 right now.
