Pros: In his rookie season last year, Charles averaged 5.3 yards per carry and 10.1 yards per reception. He showed to be a competent receiver by registering 27 catches. Running back Larry Johnson is probably one gaffe away from a lengthy suspension, which would allow for Charles to shine.
Cons: Johnson remains entrenched as the starter, so it's unclear how much work Charles will receive. The offensive line is suspect, and new head coach Todd Haley has a history of employing a pass-first approach. There is question as to whether Charles is capable of being more than a change-of-pace or third-down back.
Fantasy tip: If LJ goofs and provides Charles with a consistent chance to touch the ball, fantasy owners could have a steal on their hands. Charles' average draft placement points to the early 15th round, which could be highway robbery for the speedy second-year back.
