Chiefs | Decision time on Jamaal Charles

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:53:44 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was hurt and then the team went on average 135.9 yards - fifth in the league - in 11 regular season games with RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware. He has a $2 million report-to-training camp bonus due in July, and he could be asked to take a pay cut and/or relinquish that bonus to return while earning it back through incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has been a productive back in this league, but he has had multiple injuries to his anterior cruciate ligament and he is getting up there in age. Fantasy owners should be preparing for a steep decline going forward.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles ahead of schedule?

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 19:15:55 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) may be ahead of schedule as he rehabs from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to general manager John Dorsey.

Fantasy Tip: Charles' rehab is apparently going well, and there is a good chance he is ready for the start of the 2016 season. Despite the injury risk, Charles has too much upside as a runner and a pass-catcher to slip beyond the first couple of rounds of fantasy drafts.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles will be back

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 12:32:29 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will be back for the start of the regular season this year, according to general manager John Dorsey. "The guy is an extremely talented player," Dorsey said. "I love him to death, love how dirty tough he is. Yeah, he's a Chief." Charles missed all but five games in 2015 with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is one of the all-around best running backs in the league still, but he's had serious issues with staying healthy for a full season. For that reason his draft value will fall a bit, but he's definitely still worthy of RB1 status, especially in point-per-reception leagues.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles update

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 07:26:39 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) recently had a stem-cell procedure on his right knee recently to assist with the recovery of his torn right anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Charles turns 29 next month, and he'll have some questions entering the 2016 season. It's hard to see him falling out of the first round of drafts next year.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West solid in relief

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 15:14:07 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West was strong in place of RB Jamaal Charles (knee) on Sunday, Oct. 25. West ran for 110 yards on 22 carries and scored one touchdown in a 23-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: West ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will be a decent replacement for Charles, but keep an eye on how he does in another game so you have a decent sample size to choose from.

Chiefs | KC eager to see Charcandrick West

Sat, 17 Oct 2015 15:35:39 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West has the team eager to see what he can do in Week 6. "Quietly, they kind of like West," ESPN.com's Adam Teicher said. "The term has been used to me, 'a poor man's Jamaal Charles.' They think there are a lot of similarities in how they go about business. Now, he's not as good as Charles, don't mistake that. But they're kind of eager to see what he can do." Teicher said RB Knile Davis could get more of the goal-line opportunities because he's the bigger back. But the Chiefs might prefer West in every other situation since he's a much better pass-catcher, a more versatile runner and likely at least as good in pass protection. Teicher doesn't expect any running back to carry the load the way Charles did. But if one does emerge in that role down the road, West has a better chance than Davis.

Fantasy Tip: West ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) faces the Minnesota Vikings, who are in the middle of the pack as far as defending the running back position. West has some upside at a midrange price on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles goes to IR

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 13:42:24 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Oct. 13. Charles tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Week 5 and will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Charcandrick West ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is a top waiver wire pickup this week, but Knile Davis and De'Anthony Thomas will also be in the mix. West has a good matchup against the Minnesota Vikings this week and makes for a solid value play on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Torn ACL for Jamaal Charles

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 14:37:31 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' (knee) MRI confirmed a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to a source. Charles will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Charcandrick West, Knile Davis and De'Anthony Thomas will take over in the Kansas City backfield. West will probably be the starter, but Davis and Thomas will also be involved. West is definitely worth claiming if he is available in fantasy leagues.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles to undergo MRI exam Monday

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 13:26:25 -0700

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam on his right knee Monday, Oct. 12. Head coach Andy Reid said during his press conference that preliminary reports that he received suggested that Charles had a torn ACL.

Fantasy Tip: There is a possibility that Charles ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) could miss the rest of the season if the MRI exam yields similar results. Continue to check back frequently for official updates on his status. Charcandrick West ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had 31 rushing yards on seven carries against the Bears in Week 5 and appears poised to become the Chiefs' No. 1 back going forward. He should be grabbed in all seasonal formats if he is still available on the waiver wire. Knile Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could see increased playing time as well but is unlikely to see as many carries as West.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles may have torn ACL

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 12:46:14 -0700

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) may have suffered a torn ACL during Week 5's game against the Chicago Bears based on initial tests, according to a source with knowledge of the injury. The team will receive more information after he undergoes an MRI exam. Charles exited the game during the third quarter after suffering a non-contact injury to his right knee and had to be helped off the field by two trainers.

Fantasy Tip: If Charles ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) does indeed have a torn ACL, he will be sidelined for an extended period of time. Charcandrick West ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is receiving the bulk of the carries for Kansas City in his absence, with Knile Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) also in line to receive increased playing time. Keep checking back for further updates on Charles' status.
