Chiefs | Jamaal Charles limited Friday

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 17:31:43 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles sat out most of the contact drills during practice Friday, Aug. 7, because the team wants to keep him fresh.

Fantasy Tip: Charles will see a lot of touches this season, so the team likely will limit his work during training camp and the preseason. Charles should be one of the first players selected in drafts this season since he will help in the running and passing game.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles used in passing game

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 17:27:00 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles was emphasized in the screen game during practice Saturday, Aug. 1, and in one drill, nine straight passes were thrown to running backs.

Fantasy Tip: Charles finished with just 291 receiving yards last year, which is surprisingly low for a player with so much explosiveness and versatility. It sounds like the Chiefs are making it a point to put the ball in Charles' hands as much as possible, and he should be considered a RB1 in all formats for 2015 with top five upside at the position.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles feeling young again

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 12:01:51 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles said he's feeling healthy, is eating right and doing yoga. "I'm doing everything I am supposed to do to keep my body up at my age. Charles added that he feels like he's 20 or 21 years old again.

Fantasy Tip: A refreshed Jamaal Charles is a dangerous Jamaal Charles. Even a hampered Charles from last year was dangerous. If he can stay healthy and produce the way he's produced the last few seasons, he'll be in the top-five running back conversation again in 2015.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles taking week off

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 13:54:58 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will be taking a week off from football now that minicamp is over. Following the hiatus, Charles will begin an intense workout regimen. Charles said he would try to come back early and work with the Chief's strength and conditioning coach to get more in shape and back in the groove.

Fantasy Tip: Charles dealt with his fair share of injuries last year, but still managed to only miss one game.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles plans on playing a while

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 16:08:19 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will turn 29 by the end of the 2015 season, but he said he has no plans on slowing down and wants to play another six years. "(The game) has changed," Charles said. "They've got all kinds of technology now, all kinds of medicine people have come up with to stay healthy."

Fantasy Tip: Charles battled injuries last year, but he still managed more than 1,300 yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns. The Chiefs added Jeremy Maclin to help stretch the field a bit this year, and Charles should still produce like a RB1 as the focal point of the ground game.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles wants team to address OL

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 04:23:11 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles wants the team to address the offensive line situation in the upcoming NFL Draft. Charles told media "it was challenging last year playing with guys... some got hurt, some got suspended. So it was hard playing. I never knew how crucial it was to my career that I needed linemen."

Fantasy Tip: If you don't have a solid offensive line, it's hard to run the ball. Pure and simple. Charles' production slipped backwards somewhat because the Chiefs' offensive line was not up to snuff. Of course, that was just one reason, as there were injuries, but it's enough to make Charles a low RB1 or an RB2 on most fantasy boards.
