Chiefs | Spencer Ware considered the backup

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:14:27 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware is viewed as the backup running back behind RB Jamaal Charles, according to ESPN.com's Adam Teicher. Teicher did say that Ware and RB Charcandrick West would both play if Charles was injured.

Fantasy Tip: Ware and West proved their worth last season after Charles went down. Their fantasy value is limited as long as Charles is healthy, though. Both Ware and West are low-end RB4 to high-end RB5 considerations in the Chiefs' backfield.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles will not be rushed

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 16:38:05 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was able to participate in some drills during minicamp, but head coach Andy Reid said the team will not rush Charles back to the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Charles probably will not receive a lot of playing time during preseason because the team wants him to be ready for the regular season. He should be a first-round pick in fantasy drafts if he is healthy because he produces in the running and passing game.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could return soon

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 12:37:53 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) might participate in team drills during minicamp nextw eek, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs will probably take it easy with Charles before the regular season starts. If he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he's still worth RB1 consideration, with added value in PPR leagues.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles won't work until camp

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 22:53:57 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) made an appearance at practice Wednesday, June 1, wearing a jersey and shorts without a helmet. However, he did not practice, and he is not expected to participate in practice until training begins in July, at the earliest.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is making his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered in October, and there is no guarantee he'll be back to 100 percent by the start of the regular season. While Adrian Peterson came back and was better than ever after a torn ACL, it's a tough injury to make it back from, especially for a running back who relies on sudden turns and quick cuts. When healthy he is obviously a top-notch fantasy talent, but there is a ton of risk involved with Charles this season.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles limited in OTAs

Thu, 19 May 2016 10:24:44 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will be limited in organized team activities, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is expected to be ready well in advance of the season. It's fair to expect his workload to be tapered with Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware also proven runners. At 29, it's reaching to expect another 1,500-yard rushing season. However, he should remain a steady RB1 with West a low-end RB3 and Ware an RB5 flyer.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles has been running

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 10:43:57 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been running but isn't cutting in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. "I'll be ready," Charles said of being back out there for training camp. "I can't wait."

Fantasy Tip: Charles will be 30 this December, and his injury history is extensive at this point. He'll surely be rested more often after Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware were effective in Charles' absence last year. But when healthy, Charles still is one of the more productive backs in the NFL, and he can return to RB1 status, especially in PPR leagues.

Chiefs | No OTAs for Jamaal Charles

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 11:25:56 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) said he probably won't participate in organized team activities, but he should be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs definitely don't want to overwork Charles this offseason, especially coming off a serious knee injury. If Charles can fully recover and avoid suffering any setbacks, he should be drafted as a RB1 again in 2016.

Dolphins | Knile Davis among Dolphins' pursuit

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 11:47:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is a player the Miami Dolphins have expressed interest in. Davis is believed to be on the trade block. The Dolphins also expressed interest in RBs Jamaal Charles, Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, but those talks appeared to go nowhere.

Fantasy Tip: Davis could be an RB3 if he landed in a prominent situation like Miami.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles will be ready

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 06:16:49 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been working out at the team's facility and will be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is 29 and coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The position doesn't have as many slam dunks as it used to, so it's feasible to consider him just under the elite tier.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles not going anywhere

Fri, 26 Feb 2016 10:20:53 -0800

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not be cut, according to general manager John Dorsey. "He will be an important piece of this team moving forward," Dorsey said. Dorsey also said Charles is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has an injury prone label on his head, but when he's healthy he's arguably one of the most dynamic running backs in the NFL. He'll likely slip in fantasy drafts this fall because of another serious injury, but that means he could be had at a bargain as an RB1, especially in PPR formats.
