Chiefs | Will ride hot hand at RB

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel loves RB Jamaal Charles' speed and RB Peyton Hillis' power, and he plans to use both backs often in Week 1. However, Crennel added the flow of the game will dictate which back sees more time. "Just how we feel, how it's going," Crennel said when asked if he has a carry-split plan for Charles and Hillis. "And, that's totally honest with you. You can't say how a game is going to go. We go up there and we work all these hours at night and we put a game plan together, but if a play is not working, then you don't keep calling that play. So, whatever is working, that's what we're going to call, and that's why many times you look at that offensive call sheet that has so many plays on it because if they're not working, then you've got something else to go to."

Fantasy Tip: Owners must take a wait-and-see approach when it comes to the Chiefs' backfield as Charles and Hillis will likely split carries for now. If Charles can prove he is all the way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, however, he should emerge as the lead back. Consider both backs as RB2 options for Week 1.
