Thank you for this thread, g. I am still hoping to see his value fall further.....into the ridiculous column. I have, honestly, never cared that much for Matthews However, I liked what I saw from him last year when fed the rock. He averaged 5.1/carry with 6 TD's, which are all career highs.....on only 100 carries. Extrapolate that out to only 200 carries, which I believe is his floor if healthy, than you have a 1000+ yard RB with 10-12 TD's....and that's before receptions (he had 20 last year). BTW, Murray siphoned 193 carries last season, with a 3.6 ypc, running behind the same o-line.
Yes, injury issues are a concern, as they are for every RB......but his reputation, in particular, is creating great value. Remember Fragile Freddy? Eventually became Steady Freddy.
Basically, you are getting potential low-end RB1 value for a RB3 price tag. I'm buying.
