Chiefs | Jamaal Charles underused

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 19:10:21 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles received just 11 touches in Week 1, rushing seven times for 19 yards and catching four passes for 15 yards. Head coach Andy Reid took the blame for Charles' lack of involvement in the offense. "Not giving 25 the ball more than seven times is negligence on my part," Reid said Monday, Sept. 8.

Fantasy Tip: After an ugly loss to Tennessee in Week 1, itís a pretty safe bet that Reid will make sure Charles receives plenty of touches against Denver in Week 2. Coming off a bad performance and facing a tough opponent, Charles' $7,100 salary (14.2% of cap) ranks just ninth among backs in FantasyScore. He averaged 4.9 yards per carry in two games against the Broncos last year so consider taking advantage of his slightly depressed salary this weekend.

Chiefs | Dexter McCluster becoming bigger part of offense?

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 11:09:58 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster had a team-high seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 win over the Cleveland Brown. He also had one rush for five yards. "As a player, you never know when it's going to be your day," said McCluster, who was targeted by QB Alex Smith a team-high 10 times. "You just have to be there when it's time. I was able to get started early and get some balls early." His 13 touches were a season high, and the team has been looking for someone to step up and help lighten the workload for RB Jamaal Charles. Smith thinks the team will use McCluster more in the second half of the season.

Fantasy Tip: With Dwayne Bowe being limited with an injury, McCluster stepped up last Sunday. Bowe has been a disappointment, and McCluster's jack-of-all-trades versatility could make him a valuable asset down the stretch, especially in point-per-reception leagues. Consider adding him as receiver depth in deeper formats.
