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.

Seahawks | Jamaal Charles to meet with Seattle

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 16:12:37 -0700

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) is scheduled to meet with the Seattle Seahawks in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has not received a lot of interest this offseason, but the Seahawks have been checking in on several running backs. He probably would not be the starting running back if he joined Seattle but probably should have a solid role. Charles could be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in fantasy leagues depending in his role.

Seahawks | Jamaal Charles has mutual interest in SEA

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 05:27:26 -0800

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) has mutual interest in the Seattle Seahawks, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has missed a large part of the last two years, and there are questions what is left in the tank now that he's north of 30. It's worth noting that he has only played 16 games three times in nine seasons, and he's probably an RB3 at this point.

NFL | Jamaal Charles not attracting much interest

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 10:03:55 -0800

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) is finding a cool market for his services at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is available to sign immediately after the Kansas City Chiefs cut him last week, but he may be waiting a while before finding his new employer. The 30-year-old makes sense as a short-term answer for the Philadelphia Eagles, but he will have to prove his knees are healthy first. While Charles could conceivably start in Philly, his days as a regular fantasy starter are almost certainly over.

Eagles | Philly to consider Jamaal Charles

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 18:19:07 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson suggested Wednesday, March 1, he will look into whether or not free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) is a fit in Philadelphia. Pederson served as Charles' offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-15.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming Charles is cleared medically in the near future, this marriage makes a ton of sense because of Philadelphia's need for a lead runner, Charles' familiarity with Peterson and the fact he should come fairly cheap (given his recent injury history), which is a necessity for the cap-strapped Eagles. Charles is going to be hard to trust in fantasy as anything more than a risky flex regardless of where he winds up, but he could salvage some value if he can stay healthy in Philly.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles failed physical

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 18:03:11 -0800

Updating a previous story, Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) was released Tuesday, Feb. 28, with a "failed physical" designation.

Fantasy Tip: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day Charles is "healthy", but it appears the 30-year-old's may need a bit more time to fully recover from the knee injuries that have ruined the better part of his last two seasons. He should find a new job quickly once he is medically cleared, but his days as a trusted feature back are probably over.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles released

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 12:13:28 -0800

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles was released Tuesday, Feb. 28.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs could afford to make this move considering Charles' age, injury history and the players behind him. Spencer Ware will be the main man in the Chiefs' backfield going forward, with Charcandrick West playing a complementary role. Ware proved himself worthy of starting status last year in Charles' absence and should be drafted as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2.

Chiefs | KC set to release Jamaal Charles

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 11:16:11 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is expected to be released by the team Tuesday, Feb. 28, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: The move will clear $6.2 million in salary cap space and makes it much more palatable for the Chiefs to fit Eric Berry's new large contract onto the team payroll. Charles is one of the top running backs of his generation, but he has only 83 carries since the end of the 2014 season. His 2016 season was a complete wash as he battled injuries to both knees. The 30-year-old should find a job on the open market, but he'll probably be paid like a backup and his days as a fantasy superstar are likely over.

Eagles | Jamaal Charles an option for Eagles?

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 11:42:34 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles could be an option for the Philadelphia Eagles if he is released by the Chiefs, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Tim McManus. The Eagles will be looking to add at running back this offseason and Charles has worked with head coach Doug Pederson when Pederson was the offensive coordinator of the Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is expected to be available in free agency and may not be able to find a starting job because of his recent injury history. He would be part of a committee if he signed with the Eagles but likely would have a solid role in the offense. He will be a risky option for owners but could be a No. 3 fantasy running back depending on his role.
