As the Sixers prepare to wing to Seattle for Sunday’s tussle with the Seahawks, let’s look at their fantasy prospects:
Ryan Mathews looked dominant in Week 10 against Atlanta with 19 carries for 109 yards and two touchdowns and two catches for 30 yards, and he scored 27 fantasy points in a standard league.
His performance came out of nowhere since he had nine combined carries in his previous two games for 25 yards, and he was being outplayed by Darren Sproles.
We’ll see if the Eagles stick with Mathews this week, but this is a much tougher test on the road at Seattle.
The Seahawks have allowed five running backs to score double digits in fantasy points in a standard league this year, but it’s hard to trust Mathews based on the sample size of his work we have to deal with.
He has two games with double digits in fantasy points since Week 2 and five games with seven points or less over that span. He’s likely to score the latter this week, which makes him just a flex option at best in most formats.
