Chiefs | Jamaal Charles not the starter yet

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 19:03:01 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) recently returned to practice after knee surgery, but he has yet to play in a preseason game. He is unlikely to play Thursday, Sept. 1, in the exhibition finale. He is considered behind schedule, and while there hasn't been a setback, he isn't confirmed as the full-time featured back, either. RB Spencer Ware has taken first-team reps for training camp and the preseason, with RB Charcandrick West also seeing first-team reps. "For Jamaal, it's (a matter of) getting trust in the leg," head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday, Aug. 30. "Every day he does a little bit more and a little bit more and his cuts are a little bit sharper. It's just a matter of time and we're OK there. We're OK with that."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners who took Charles in the first round of fantasy drafts are likely not OK with that, however. It sounds like there will be a timeshare, at least for the first few games, as the Chiefs ease Charles into a full-time role. Spencer Ware should be added right now in all fantasy leagues, as if he gets the hot hand he could see significant time, at least in the first few weeks.

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 07:08:37 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is unlikely to play in the third preseason game, according to head coach Andy Reid. Charles should practice more this week, however.

Fantasy Tip: The team is easing Charles in this preseason, and there's no reason to believe he'll be limited when the season begins. Charles is a midrange RB1 in fantasy.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles does more work

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 09:02:37 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was limited Wednesday, Aug. 17, but he got through a larger workload than he did the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: The team plans to use Charles as much as he can handle if he's healthy and productive. He has plenty of talent behind him, though, and they can afford to take it slow with him in the early stages. Charles is in the midrange RB1 mix.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware caps first drive with TD

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 14:59:23 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware got the start with RB Jamaal Charles (knee) still on the Physically Unable to Perform list and did not disappoint in the team's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, Aug. 13, running for 24 yards on five carries and converting on a 1-yard plunge early in the first quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Ware had the first two drives all to himself before giving way to Charcandrick West, reaffirming the former is in the lead at the moment to be considered Charles' handcuff. The LSU product may also have a bit of standalone value as Kansas City may opt to use him over Charles at the goal line. Ware is one of the better handcuffs available to owners this summer and should be a solid RB4 with significant upside.

Chiefs | GM hopeful about Jamaal Charles

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 13:25:37 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said he is hopeful that RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will be ready for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list but will still have several weeks to recover. Owners should monitor the situation during the preseason to see if he will be ready for Week 1. Charles should be considered a No. 1 running back if he is healthy.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles won't be limited

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 08:22:28 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' (knee) workload won't be limited if he's healthy and returns to the player he was before his knee injury, according to beat writer Adam Teicher.

Fantasy Tip: Charles turns 30 in December, and there will be some concern whether he can return to that elite level. That also means he could come at a slight discount in drafts. Charles remains a solid RB1.

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.
