Chargers | Coach wants to use multiple RBs

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said he wants to use multiple running backs this season and will use the hot hand at the position. "That's the big thing. Play the hot hand while you roll. If you've got to tap out for a play or two, we'll put the next guy in," McCoy said. RB Ryan Mathews has worked with the first-team and second-team offense during practice and is part of a rotation with RBs Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown.

Fantasy Tip: It would appear Mathews will be the starting running back entering the season but could lose carries to Woodhead and Brown because the coaches want to keep all three fresh. Mathews should be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back this season. Woodhead can be a No. 3 running back in point-per-reception leagues and a No. 4 running back in non-PPR leagues. Brown could be a No. 5 running back in deeper leagues.
