Fantasy Tip: Royal has been a bit inconsistent in his production this season but could be a factor this week since the Baltimore Ravens struggle against opposing wide receivers. Royal could be a cheap flex option on FantasyScore at $3,100, but owners should be able to find a more consistent option to use.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews should continue to receive a majority of the carries. Mathews has a price tag of $5,200 on FantasyScore but likely will not be a great option to use since the Baltimore Ravens have given up the fewest fantasy points to running backs this season.

Fantasy Tip: Royal ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has only seen 23 targets over his last seven games, which makes him a high-risk flier in FantasyScore contests.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has only rushed 28 times through two games since returning from his should injury. Although he has posted respectable numbers, the Baltimore Ravens allow just 88.3 yards per game on the ground. Consider Mathews nothing more than an endgame option in FantasyScore contests, if his salary fits.

San Diego Chargers FS Eric Weddle has taken over the defensive play-calling duties in the last two games, which means he is the one communicating with defensive coordinator John Pagano on relaying play calls to the rest of his teammates. LB Donald Butler was in that role earlier this year, but Butler's playing time has decreased, and Weddle has plenty of experience. The Chargers are 2-0 since the switch and have played more consistently on defense.

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee, shoulder) has 175 rushing yards in two games since returning from a knee injury, but he's carried the ball an average of 14 times in those two games, with just four carries in the fourth quarter and two in the red zone. Head coach Mike McCoy said that team is monitoring Mathews' touches as he makes his way back from injury. RBs Branden Oliver and Donald Brown are still being sprinkled in. Mathews suffered a shoulder injury in the second half but returned to the game, and the injury isn't considered serious.
Fantasy Tip: Mathews looked healthy and spry against the St. Louis Rams in Week 12. However, be careful not to overvalue him heading into Week 13 in a very tough matchup against a strong Baltimore Ravens run unit on the road at FantasyScore.
