Mathews top Charger in fantasy football

ESPN fantasy football experts released the top 200 players for the 2014 season Tuesday, which you can check out here. And with all 11 starters returning from one of the top offenses in football, it's no surprise that six San Diego Chargers made the cut.

Running back Ryan Mathews is the top San Diego player at No. 37, followed by Keenan Allen (42), Danny Woodhead (87), Donald Brown (114), Philip Rivers (118) and Nick Novak (157).

Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green did not make the list, but the duo is rated the No. 15 and 16 tight ends in ESPN fantasy football.

Mathews is ranked No. 17 among running backs, followed by Woodhead (36) and Brown (48).

Rivers is ranked No. 14 among quarterbacks, and Allen comes in at No. 16 among receivers.

Novak is the No. 7-ranked kicker in ESPN fantasy football.
