2016 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


Over six years in the NFL, Mathews has missed 23 games. He has two seasons with over 1000 yards rushing on his resume while averaging 4.5 yards per carry in his career. His game played well in the Eagles system in 2015 (107/539/6) over 13 games (six starts) with some value in the passing game (20/146/1). Ryan missed three games over the second half of the year due to a concussion and a groin issue. His best game of the season came as a starter in Week 3 (128 combined yards with a TD and two catches). Last season the Eagles' RBs rushed for 1633 yards on 398 carries with 15 rushing TDs while catching 128 balls for 878 yards and three TDs on 178 targets. Mathews has talent with a chance to provide scoring in all areas of the game (yards, catches, and TDs), but he also does have injury risk. He's decent gamble as a backend RB2 with a chance at 250 or more touches for 1300+ yards and double digit TDs. It will be important to secure a handcuff based his propensity to get hurt.
