Mathews has been limited to six games this season due to injury. Donald Brown and Branden Oliver would likely pick up most of the slack in the running game, if Mathews is sidelined.

12/12/2014 17:31 Week 15 Fantasy Cheat Sheet
If there was ever a week to be completely informed about all of the matchups that could impact your lineups, it's Week 15. Our Dave Richard shares his outlook in his Fantasy Cheat Sheet.
Ryan Mathews had the rebound season many Fantasy owners were hoping for in 2013. But now he has to do it again -- and it won’t be easy. San Diego added Donald Brown as a free agent this offseason and, in theory, Donald Brown will replace Ronnie Brown and allow Mathews the chance to shine. But Donald Brown will be more of a factor this year. It would be a shame to limit Mathews' touches since he was a star last season with 285 carries for 1,255 yards and six touchdowns and 26 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown. The Chargers are saying all the right things about Mathews, who is entering a contract year, and we still consider him a No. 2 Fantasy running back. He is worth drafting in Round 4 and hopefully Donald Brown and Danny Woodhead won't hinder Mathews' progress. We just hope Mathews doesn't suffer a setback because last year he was a surprise sensation, and we'd like to see him do it again.
