Broncos | Jamaal Charles ready by training camp?

Tue, 23 May 2017 13:34:57 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) hopes to be ready for action by training camp, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Charles will rehabilitate and get back to good health during organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Charles will be part of a committee in Denver, primarily with C.J. Anderson, and should be on the field mostly in passing situations and on third downs. Health is a huge risk in Charles' case and he can't be drafted as more than a flex in PPR formats.

Broncos | Denver plans on using RB committee in '17

Mon, 22 May 2017 21:36:51 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is planning on using a running-back-by-committee system in the upcoming season. "You need two or three guys that can carry the load," Joseph said. "It is no longer a one-guy position. I'm excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De'Angelo (Henderson) in the mix there. It's a good group. It's going to be competitive, and that's the way it should be."

Fantasy Tip: Anderson figures to lead the way throughout the campaign, but it looks like he may not get as much work as his fantasy owners will desire, especially since he's coming back from a significant injury. With Charles and Booker also in town, it looks like this will be a tricky situation to deal with in 2017.

Broncos | Jamaal Charles not a lock for roster

Thu, 18 May 2017 18:09:44 -0700

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles has a 50 percent chance to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Mike Klis.

Fantasy Tip: If Charles can prove he is healthy during camp, he should land a spot in the running back rotation. Even in that scenario, he is only worth taking a chance on in the later rounds.

Broncos | Open competition at RB in Denver

Fri, 12 May 2017 12:14:40 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph told reporters Friday, May 12, there will be competition for the starting running back job in training camp, presumably between C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Devontae Booker.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph may actually be leaning toward a committee approach based on his comments Friday. Assuming Charles is anywhere close to his former self, he should be considered the leader, although his recent injury woes makes him a poor bet to hold up all season. Anderson is most likely going to be the most valuable player in this bunch in 2017, but he has yet to prove he can handle a heavy workload for a full season. As a result, none of these backs may be worth anything more than flex consideration in 2017.

Broncos | One-year deal for Jamaal Charles

Tue, 02 May 2017 14:30:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles' deal is one year in length and worth up to $3.75 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has a one-year prove-it deal with Denver to see if his knees can hold up. At 30 years old and with multiple knee surgeries, the safe route to take is drafting Charles as and RB3 or flex in PPR leagues.

Broncos | Jamaal Charles joining Broncos

Tue, 02 May 2017 14:26:48 -0700

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) will sign with the Denver Broncos after agreeing to terms Tuesday, May 2, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Jamaal Charles significantly diminishes the fantasy value of C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker, but more so Booker. The key word in that sentence is "healthy." Charles has missed close to two full seasons consecutively due to multiple knee surgeries. Anderson should serve as Denver's two-down back and is still worth a look as an RB2. Charles will have a change-of-pace role and makes Booker ostensibly undraftable as long as he can stay on the field.

Broncos | Denver may sign Jamaal Charles

Tue, 02 May 2017 11:27:25 -0700

Former Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is visiting the Denver Broncos Tuesday, May 2. If Charles passes his physical, the expectation is that the Broncos will sign him, according to The Denver Post's Troy Renck.

Fantasy Tip: Charles epitomizes a high-risk, high-reward player at this point in his career. He might even be a high-risk, medium-reward player. The oft-injured running back has only played in eight games the last two seasons and has undergone multiple knee surgeries. It's an exciting move and a good fit if the Broncos sign him, but don't let the excitement force an overdraft. He's no more than an RB3 or flex option with more value in PPR leagues.

Broncos | Jamaal Charles will visit Broncos

Mon, 01 May 2017 12:01:34 -0700

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) is scheduled to visit the Denver Broncos Tuesday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: C.J. Anderson will lead Denver's backfield, but Charles could serve as the third-down back in a change-of-pace role alongside Devontae Booker. Unfortunately for Charles, he's 30 years old and has missed 23 games the last two seasons due to serious injuries and multiple knee surgeries. He's merely a late-round flier at this point in his career. The risk is just too great.

Seahawks | Jamaal Charles leaves Seattle with no deal

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 17:25:43 -0700

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) "had a good visit" with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, March 16, but ultimately left without signing a contract. Charles also may be visiting another team next week, though the identity of that franchise isn't known.

Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks just signed Eddie Lacy, and considering they also have Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise on the roster, there just doesn't seem to be a fit here now. Charles was one of the league's top running backs when healthy, but over the past two seasons, he's managed to suit up in only eight games combined. His next destination will determine how much fantasy value he has entering his age-30 season.

Seahawks | Jamaal Charles will meet with Seattle Wednesday

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 14:37:35 -0700

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) will visit the Seattle Seahawks Wednesday, March 15, and Thursday, March 16, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is what many would consider washed up at this point in his career. His extensive injury history has caught up to him as he has only played in eight games over the last two seasons. Even if he signed with the Seahawks, he would be splitting snaps with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise. At 30 years old, Charles is too big of a risk to be drafted as more than an RB4.
