Rookie Ryan Mathews was lost to an injured ankle in the first half against the Jaguars, so the Chargers are leaning on Mike Tolbert, not Darren Sproles, as their lead backfield option.
The bowling ball of a running back has 74 yards on 14 carries with two touchdown runs (2, 1) in the contest. If Mathews is forced out in Week 3 due to his injury, Tolbert will be a hot name on the fantasy waiver wire.
He’s a free agent in 99.2 percent of NFL.com leagues.
