Ryan Matthews is quickly becoming a household name and he hasn’t even played a down in a real NFL game.

Fantasy football players are drafting him as one of the top-15 picks according to fanball.com, which would make him the highest drafted rookie.

Former California RB, Jahvid Best of the Lions  is the second highest rookie according to the average draft position.

Matthews durability and speed may be the reason why he is soaring on draft boards and he showed that in the preseason loss to the Saints, “I think it showcased my speed a little bit.” Mathews said.
