    I'm gonna say the 1100-1300yds range, because he's a rookie and this is still the Philip Rivers show. And 12 TDs

    But if he were to get around 325 carries (which he will not) I could see the 1400+ range.

    I am hoping he can finish a season for starters.

    Is it true the brother has never finished a season ? If so I am hoping for health.

    Last season he had 271 attempts and 1800 yards. I can see similar numbers with the same amount of attempts and I'm also predicting he goes over 100 yards in at least 10 games. Plus, Norv predicted him to get around 250 attempts and 40 catches

    Right now I'm guessing 1575 yards and 14 tds

    I'd be happy with 1000 yards, 6 TD's, and NO FUMBLES!

    IIRC he has not finished a full season. Last year he missed 1 game due to concussion, I didn't really bother to dig deeper than that, but I'm sure the super draft nerds on here know.

    If he only gains one yard all season, it will be one more than he had last year for the Chargers.:bolt:

    We will now get a better reading on the line. If they play decent I figure around 1200 yds.

    Jeff Chadiha ESPN:

    Top Ten Draft Day Marriages:

    4. Ryan Mathews RB, San Diego Chargers: The Chargers traded plenty to move up 16 slots for Mathews, but it will be worth it in the end. He now joins an offense stocked with Pro Bowl talent. He also gets to share time with a proven playmaker in Darren Sproles and run the ball for a head coach (Norv Turner) who's at his best with an effective ground game. In other words, Mathews should be the front-runner for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

    not to nitpick but your last option should read < 800 (less than 800 yards) and the last one > 1800 (more than 1800 yards), yeah, I'm a geek programmer :lol:

    I think a couple of years he missed a single game. Not sure if they would have kept him off the field in the NFL.

    1,200 yards and 8 td's.

    and Rivers is going to go crazy this year... because Matthews will play well early, and teams will have to stack the line like they used to...and Rivers will feast on them.
