Ryan Mathews leads Chargers rushing attack in Week 11 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers running back Ryan Mathews returned to action Sunday, rushing for 70 yards on 16 carries and catching his only target for another five yards in his team's 13-6 win over the Raiders in Week 11.

Mathews started out a little slow, gaining a total of one yard on his first three carries, but looked just fine after missing two months with a knee injury. His best carry came early in the third quarter, when he made a slight adjustment after taking the ball to cut through a hole in the defense and then kept his balance after taking his first hit before finally being dragged down with a 20-yard gain.

Running mate Branden Oliver also received 13 carries in a game that the Chargers led for more than 59 minutes. However, Oliver averaged just 2.8 yards per carry, gaining only 36 yards on the ground while adding one catch for three yards. Mathews will likely remain the No. 1 option in the running game moving forward while healthy. The Chargers move on to face the Rams in Week 12.

Ryan Mathews returns to lead role
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Charges running back Ryan Mathews took the lead role back from  Branden Oliver in Week 11, after missing seven games with a knee injury.

The Chargers didn't really ease Mathews back in too much, as he touched the ball 17 times in the win. The blowout still left Oliver plenty of opportunities to contribute, as he added 13 carries, but was far less effective than Mathews, rushing for 34 fewer yards on just three fewer carries.

There is no question Mathews is the better option in the backfield, so it was good to see get something close to a full workload in his return. The Chargers trust Oliver enough to keep him involved, but Mathews is likely to get 15-20 touches per game. He should be a solid Fantasy option down the stretch, while Oliver will likely be just a handcuff option for Mathews owners.

Chargers fairly healthy with Week 11 game on horizon
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cornerback Jason Verrett (shoulder) is out and nose tackle Sean Lissemore (quad) is doubtful, but it appears all other Chargers are ready to roll Sunday against Oakland. The only exception could be safety Jahleel Addae (concussion), who is questionable.

The probables are linebackers Manti Te'o (foot) and Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring), running back Ryan Mathews (knee) and offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger (back).
