Chiefs | Knile Davis has 100-yard game

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 21:02:53 -0700

Kansas City Cheifs RB Knile Davis rushed for a team-high 107 yards on 16 carries in Week 5 and added one catch for 12 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Davis saw some extra touches later in the game because Jamaal Charles exited with cramps and the game turned into a blowout. He has proven he can be productive when given enough touches, but expect him to play second fiddle to Charles most weeks.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles probable

Sat, 27 Sep 2014 14:10:02 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 4. He was limited in practice again Saturday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Charles ($8,300; 16.6% of your cap) carries a bit of risk, but he's usually worth the investment. Knile Davis ($7,700; 15.4%) is a player to avoid on FantasyScore this week.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles increasing reps

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 07:43:59 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) will have his role expanded in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Charles ($8,300; 16.6% of your cap) seems to have a good chance to play this week. However, he would need to play something resembling a full load to justify his price tag on FantasyScore. The same can be said for Knile Davis ($7,700; 15.4%), who is a good play if Charles sits. However, if Charles returns and they share the load, both of them could be risky plays.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles not expected to go

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 06:37:41 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is not expecting to play Sunday, Sept. 21, but he will test his ankle on in pre-game warm-ups. RB Knile Davis would be the starter if Charles doesn't suit up.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($5,700; 11.4% of your cap) is a solid RB2 on FantasyScore this week if Charles doesn't play.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could play

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 06:28:42 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) has a real chance to play Sunday, Sept. 21, and will be a game-time decision. Charles has more of a bruise than a high ankle sprain.

Fantasy Tip: Charles ($8,400; 16.8% of your cap) could be a little too pricey on FantasyScore to consider this week. Knile Davis ($5,700; 11.4%) is a great play this week if Charles doesn't go.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles splits reps

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 21:23:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RBs Jamaal Charles (ankle) and Knile Davis split first-team reps in practice Friday, Sept. 19. Davis was the running back for the first snap of practice, and then Charles took the next two snaps. Officially, Charles was listed as a limited participant. He spent time running some light pass patterns and caugh passes with the rest of the team's receivers and backs.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is still a bit of a question mark, and FantasyScore owners might not want to commit $8400 (or 16.8 percent of salary cap space) on a player who might see limited reps, or potentially no reps at all. In fact, Davis might be the better play at $5700 (or 11.4 percent of salary cap space). Watch the situation closely before finalizing your lineup.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles practicing again

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 11:17:26 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) was practicing with the team for the second straight day Friday, Sept. 19, after missing practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, with a high ankle sprain. Charles' official status on the injury report has not been released yet. Charles ran light patterns and caught passes with the receivers and running backs after warming up Friday. RB Knile Davis took the first snap of practice with the starting offense, but Charles took the next two snaps.

Fantasy Tip: This is a tricky situation. Charles will likely be listed as questionable, and he could be a game-time decision. It's a huge risk at FantasyScore for $8,400, especially with the Chiefs playing the Miami Dolphins in the afternoon. Davis ($5,700) becomes a risk, too.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles injury not severe

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 06:24:45 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles' (ankle) high ankle sprain does not appear to be severe, according to head coach Andy Reid. His status is unknown.

Fantasy Tip: High ankle sprains generally cost players multiple weeks. Charles ($8,400; 16.8% of your cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore this week even if he plays. Knile Davis is expected to take over in Charles' role and makes a great RB3 ($5,700; 11.4%) this week.

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 06:17:05 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis' insertion into the starting lineup would not alter the team's game plan, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is a great value at $5,700 (11.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore as an RB3.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles has X-rays

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 05:58:13 -0700

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) had X-rays on his ankle, which were negative. He'll still undergo an MRI to determine if he has any ligament damage.

Fantasy Tip: His status for Week 3 is unknown, but Knile Davis is a good player to target for now.

Chiefs | Knile Davis scores two TDs

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:44:30 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis ran 22 times for 79 yards and two touchdowns against the Denver Broncos in a Week 2 loss in place of RB Jamaal Charles (ankle).

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown at this time how much time Charles will be forced to miss with a sprained ankle. Regardless, Davis will be a popular waiver-wire addition heading into Week 3, at least as a handcuff for Charles owners.

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 14:41:15 -0700

Fantasy Tip: The team isn't overly concerned with the injury, and fantasy owners shouldn't worry either.

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 19:02:07 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said the team plans on giving RB Knile Davis (leg) more touches next season as long as he can recover from his broken leg. "As we went on, we were able to do that with Knile," Reid said. "Knile was a rookie and he was learning every week and getting better every week. As the season went on we were able to give him the ball a little bit more. Coming into this season, we'll be able to mix it up a little bit better than what we did early in the season last year."

Chiefs | More on Jamaal Charles

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 11:41:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid expects RB Jamaal Charles (quadriceps) to play in the team's Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys despite being held out of practice for precautionary reasons Wednesday, Sept. 11. Charles suffered a quadriceps bruise in Week 1. If for some reason he doesn't play, RBs Cyrus Gray or Knile Davis would replace him. Gray played on passing downs in Week 1 and Davis was used on running plays.

Fantasy Tip: Follow up on Charles' practice status for the rest of the week, but for now, assume that he'll play this weekend.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles has mild sprain

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 10:54:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) is dealing with a mild foot strain, and he wasn't walking with a boot or a noticeable limp Tuesday, Aug. 13. He rode a stationary bike but didn't participate in practice. "People are speculating Lisfranc and all that," trainer Rick Burkholder said of the mid-foot injury that caused problems for former RB Larry Johnson. "He doesn't have any discomfort there. I've had him see two orthopedic surgeons and everyone agrees he has a mild foot strain." There is no timetable for when Charles will return to action, but it's unlikely he'll play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16. RB Knile Davis took most of the reps with the first-team offense Tuesday, and RBs Shaun Draughn and Cyrus Gray are battling for the No. 3 job.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is a late-round flier as a handcuff to Charles. The rookie can be explosive if given an opportunity. His touches will go up if Charles misses time, but even then, the Chiefs probably won't rely solely on him.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles update

Mon, 12 Aug 2013 08:53:51 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) left with a foot injury Monday, Aug. 12. X-rays were negative, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Charles owners and those targeting him in the top three picks of drafts can let out a sigh of relief. This reminds us that he's rather injury-prone, though, so if you take him early, it's wise to build strong RB depth around him. When healthy, Charles is one of the best point-per-reception threats in the league. Rookie Knile Davis would probably see the most action if Charles were to miss extensive time.

Chiefs | Knile Davis learning from coaches

Fri, 28 Jun 2013 11:20:25 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs running backs coach Eric Bieniemy has been working with RB Knile Davis to help perfect his running technique. "We've had conversations about stuff on and off-the-field; he's really been like that father-figure to me, helping me and showing me different things, letting me know what I'm about to face," Davis said. "On the field, he's very hard on me; he's my biggest critic. He's a perfectionist, who is on me about the littlest details, but I know it's going to make me better and that's what he's here for; he's definitely doing his job."

Chiefs | Knile Davis talks about fumble issues

Thu, 30 May 2013 08:48:57 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis said the fumble problems he displayed in his final season at Arkansas have been fixed. "I think I'll never fumble again," the 2013 third-round pick said. "I had two bad games last year where I fumbled a lot. It was just me not focusing on it."

Fantasy Tip: Davis will compete to be the main backup to Jamaal Charles but isn't worth anything more than a final-round flyer in most leagues. Only an injury to Charles will vault him into having any value.
