Chiefs | KC remaining cautious with Jamaal Charles

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 11:00:23 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) appears to have a decent chance to make his season debut in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Andy Reid admitted the team is being "very cautious" in regards to Charles.

Fantasy Tip: Spencer Ware is making the cautious approach look like the right approach thus far, although Week 3 marked the first time he failed to top 100 total yards despite receiving a season-high 21 touches. The Chiefs go on their bye in Week 5, so a case could be made to sit Charles out one more game. Either way, Charles appears headed for a timeshare with Ware - at least initially - once he makes his return.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles won't play Sunday

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 06:56:14 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not play in Week 3's game against the New York Jets, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a precautionary measure for Charles, who has yet to suit up for a regular-season game this year but is likely to see action versus the Pittsburgh Steelers next week. RB Spencer Ware will once again serve as the team's lead back and should be viewed as an RB2 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles doubtful for Week 3

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:55:39 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the New York Jets. While most of his work in practice this week was on the scout team, head coach Andy Reid said Charles saw a bit of first-team work as well.

Fantasy Tip: Charles appears primed for a Week 4 debut versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, although it should be noted the Chiefs have a Week 5 bye. Either way, he's almost certain to share backfield duties with Spencer Ware for at least a few weeks and possibly the remainder of the season when he returns. Kansas City's offense can support two backs in fantasy, although both will likely be relegated to RB2 status if they split work.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles still limited Thursday

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 15:53:18 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, September 22.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Andy Reid has already indicated that it's more likely than not that Charles will sit out another week. Even if he does manage to suit up, he would be shaping up as a risky play at best. As a result, look for Spencer Ware to continue to settle in as a fine RB2 in Kansas City's upcoming tilt with the Jets.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles likely to sit again

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 22:58:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is likely to sit again in Week 3. Head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that "another week is going to help him. We'll just see."

Fantasy Tip: Charles has been inactive for the first two games, as Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West. Fantasy owners should be patient, as it could be another week or two before Charles returns to game action, and a handful of games before he regains fantasy relevance.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles limited

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 16:53:21 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Charles' practice participation during the week to see if he has any chance to play in Week 3. He likely would be limited if he is active for the game and probably should be avoided.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles' Week 3 status uncertain

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 10:36:39 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) "looked better" in practice last week, but head coach Andy Reid was noncommittal when asked about his status for Week 3 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: The nightmare continues for owners who drafted Charles in the second or third round of drafts this summer hoping they were getting a discounted rate on a potential RB1 who could take over the backfield sometime before the end of September. The good news is that a return seems imminent. When he does make it back, he'll likely split backfield work with Spencer Ware.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles to miss another game

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 09:02:46 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 2 game.

Fantasy Tip: Spencer Ware should receive a majority of the playing time at running back with Charcandrick West also seeing snaps. Ware should be a solid No. 2 running back in most leagues despite his toe injury, while West could be an attractive flex option.
