2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Mike Tolbert, RB, San Diego

2010 Stats
735 rush yds.
11 rush TDs
25 rec. / 216 yds.
0 rec. TDs
2011 Projected
795 rush yds.
7 rush TDs
23 rec. / 205 yds.
0 rec. TDs

After just 37 carries in his first two NFL seasons, Tolbert had a breakout year in 2010. Tolbert filled in very nicely for the injured Ryan Mathews, scoring 11 touchdowns and rushing for 735 yards. While Mathews is expected to be the feature back in San Diego, Tolbert will still get his share of carries, especially around the goalline. Tolbert has value for two reasons, he plays behind an injury proven player in Mathews and the Chargers offense is one of the best in the NFL.
