San Diego’s favorite runningback Ladainian Tomlinson picked his fantasy football team yesterday and one of the players that he chose was our boy Ryan Mathews:

Looks like LT trusts in the Ryan this season. With a new coaching staff and a new offensive line, I think that Ryan Mathews can put up some good numbers this season. It just depends on if he can stay healthy for the year.

Ryan doesn’t have a threat for the carries this season. He is the main back with a couple of other 3rd down backs on the roster. He is going to get the foal line carries, unless he does more of that fumbling of the football stuff around that area.

Mathews seems like a good option and I will trust in LT on this one. I am sure it feels good to Ryan that his favorite player has chosen him to be on his fantasy football team. Time to step up Ryan and put some points on the board for your fantasy owners and for your team.

You guys know I love touchdowns. Hope my fantasy team knows the way to the endzone!
