Chiefs | Second scope good for Jamaal Charles

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 13:51:41 -0800

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) could return to the field this season thanks to his second knee scope. A return in late December or in the playoffs is still possible. Without the second scope, Charles would not have been able to return at all this season.

Fantasy Tip: This won't have much of an impact on Spencer Ware's fantasy value. Ware remains a weekly RB1 as long as he is healthy. That's including this week against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that allowed 100 rushing yards per game and nine total touchdowns in nine games to running backs.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles undergoes surgery

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 10:14:47 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday, Nov. 14.

Fantasy Tip: There was hope that Charles would be able to return for the postseason, but this surgery probably will end his season. Owners should consider Charles a No. 2 running back in drafts next season.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could return in January

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 07:29:08 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs are optimistic that RB Jamaal Charles (knee) could resume playing as soon as Week 17's game against the San Diego Chargers, according to a source. However, it is more likely that he would be available for a potential postseason run.

Fantasy Tip: Charles will need several weeks to recover from surgery to trim the meniscus in his right knee but his possible return will come too late to help most fantasy owners. Charcandrick West will serve as Kansas City's starting running back for Week 9's game against the Jaguars, although Spencer Ware should reassume the starting role once he fully recovers from a concussion.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could return this year

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 05:22:01 -0700

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) had successful surgery Wednesday, Nov. 2, and there's a chance he could return this year.

Fantasy Tip: That seems pretty unlikely, but if you have the roster space, he could be a nice boost for the playoff run. Spencer Ware (concussion) hasn't cleared the concussion protocol, and Charcandrick West looks like a solid RB2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles having surgery

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 06:34:38 -0700

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday, Nov. 2. A source said Dr. James Andrews wants to take a look at the knee with a scope to determine the necessary procedure and will communicate with the Chiefs' medical staff after he is finished.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is on IR, and his fantasy season is essentially over. Spencer Ware (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol, and Charcandrick West is as talented of a third running back as you'll find. He'll be a solid RB2 or flex option against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles heads to IR, facing surgery

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 14:56:13 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Nov. 1. After visiting Dr. James Andrews, it appears Charles will need a second surgery on his surgically-repaired knee. The severity is unclear.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, this will basically end his season, as Charles just was never able to get over the torn ACL injury he sustained a year ago. A second surgery could also put his NFL future in jeopardy, which would be a real shame. Spencer Ware will remain the starter moving forward, though he's coming off a concussion in Week 8. Charcandrick West is the only tailback behind Ware and should be scooped up off every waiver wire, if possible.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles to miss game

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 16:16:01 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 28, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Spencer Ware will continue to receive most of the carries during the game with Charcandrick West also receiving some playing time. Ware should be a starting running back in all fantasy leagues, while West could have some value as a flex option in some leagues.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles' knee 'acted up' last week

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 13:11:52 -0700

Updating a previous story, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) had a setback in his surgically repaired right knee in a Week 7 win over the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Andy Reid admitted Friday, Oct. 28, that Charles' knee "acted up". "The knee, it was up and down. We'll just back him off here and see if we can't get that thing to settle down. You have to be smart with it. He might take a step back and come forward with something better," Reid said.

Fantasy Tip: So it appears Charles or the coaching staff pushed a bit too hard last week. As aggravating as it might be, owners need to remain patient, because the reality of the situation is if the Chiefs didn't think he was going to be of use and play a critical role down the stretch, they would have already placed him on IR. In the meantime, Spencer Ware should remain a rock-solid RB1 in fantasy.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles will sit vs. Colts

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 12:39:42 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: He was limited in practice all week after receiving one carry on two snaps in Week 7, so one has to wonder how Charles has regressed from last week. Spencer Ware is an elite RB1 play again this week against another soft run defense, while Charcandrick West should see some snaps in relief.
