Chargers RB Mike Tolbert (hand) was limited in practice on Friday, the first time he was able to practice at all this week. Tolbert is listed as questionable on the Chargers injury report, while rookie Ryan Mathews (ankle) is probable after practicing all week.
Tolbert is the more reliable fantasy option, though a bruised hand limits him in the passing game and the Raiders held him to only 11 rushing yards in the team’s previous meeting. Though, in fairness, the Chargers were put into a large hole in the previous meeting because of special team touchdowns.
Tolbert will be hard pressed to reach the 26 rushing attempts he had against the Colts in Week 12, and because of that, I would use Tolbert as a flex starter in most fantasy formats.
