2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-24-2013 by Jeb Gorham

In my opinion, Mathews is a stud running back, but he falls signifcantly down the draft sheets this season. At this point he should be considered a solid'safe pick at RB. He might not have had the expected output last season, but I think he will be ready to go this year. His ability to catch the ball as well as run adds to his value. The addition of Danny Woodhead to the running back mix should be interesting, but not severely cut into Mathews' workload. Mathews is the starter here and he should show increased fantasy performance in 2013.

Update 8/23/13 - Mathews has looked good in preseason and continues to be a safe RB pick. His value has slid down most drafts and you might grab him as a steal. He still has to work with Danny Woodhead sharing some of the load. We will have to see how much.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
4.12 FFToolbox - Jeb Gorham - Jamie grabbed Danny Amendola at 4.10 and he was next on my list. I figured that Ryan Mathews had dropped this far and was worth a last pick 4th round - might be a steal. Was a top RB pick last season's drafts.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
4.01 KFFSC - I'm a glutton for punishment. I've been burned by Mathews for 3 seasons on various rosters. But he is going to see a lot of carries and although his receptions may be down, he still is a RB2 with RB1 potential. I put a lot of thought into taking Frank Gore here and wouldn't begrudge anyone who does, but I think Matthews is going to be relied on heavily.

5.03 KFFL - This was probably a mistake, but I felt he was worth the risk as a third running back. A new offense and improved line should help him, assuming he can remain healthy.
