Ryan Mathews says there is ‘no doubt’ that he will play week 1 against the Oakland Raiders. Well, I have doubts. It’s good to hear a player have confidence and that he may ‘ahead of schedule’ on his rehab, but as Norv Turner said “Ryan is NOT a Doctor.” I have laid out my draft plan for Mathews and still think he can provide good value in the late 2nd/early 3rd. There are very few RBs that will have an opportunity to touch the ball 20 times a game and have the juice that this guy has, he just needs to stay out of the freaking trainers room. I’m not counting on a week 1 return, but more like a week 3 return. I am perfectly OK with that as I know the fantasy season is not won or lost in the first 2 weeks of the season.
