Chiefs | Larger role for Spencer Ware?

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 19:04:16 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware has been seeing a lot of the starter's reps in practice in training camp, and RB Charcandrick West gets some, too, as RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been slow to return to a featured back role after a torn anterior cruciate ligament back in October 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is behind schedule and all indications are that he will not be able to handle the lion's share of the carries like in the past, meaning Ware might be used much more. Ware is worth drafting in the final rounds of all fantasy formats, especially if you draft Charles early on draft day. West is also a decent handcuff if you miss out on Ware.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware scores third preseason TD

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 18:02:28 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware finished with nine carries for 24 yards and a touchdown to go along with four catches for 26 yards in a preseason win over the Chicago Bears on Saturday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: With Jamaal Charles sitting out yet again, Ware continued to prove he is the handcuff to own in Kansas City despite a less-than-impressive rushing line. The real takeaway is his work in the receiving game, as he has eight catches over the last two preseason contests after posting only six in 11 outings last year. Owners of Charles would be wise to invest a pick in Ware in the early double-digit rounds, while Ware might also provide standalone value as the likely goal-line back to non-Charles owners.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West holds his own

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 15:10:40 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West played behind RB Spencer Ware in the team's preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, Aug. 13, but flashed on a 25-yard run and finished with 35 yards on four carries.

Fantasy Tip: West doesn't project to have an early-season role with Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware ahead of him on the depth chart, but this performance is just another reminder the Chiefs are as deep at running back as any team in the league. The Abilene Christian product will need some injuries to happen in front of him to be relevant in fantasy, but he has already shown he can produce when given the chance.

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 | Spencer Ware under the weather

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 18:44:31 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (illness) did not practice Saturday, July 30, and head coach Andy Reid said he was sick.

Fantasy Tip: Ware looks like the frontrunner to be Jamaal Charles' primary backup, and if you grab Charles early, you should consider Ware as an insurance policy.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware active in passing game

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:50:32 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware caught lots of passes in OTAs, according to beat writer Terez A. Paylor.

Fantasy Tip: Ware is expected to be the No. 2 back behind Jamaal Charles. Both Ware and Charcandrick West are worth owning given Charles' injury history, but Ware should be higher on your draft board.

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.

Dolphins | Knile Davis among Dolphins' pursuit

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 11:47:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is a player the Miami Dolphins have expressed interest in. Davis is believed to be on the trade block. The Dolphins also expressed interest in RBs Jamaal Charles, Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, but those talks appeared to go nowhere.

Fantasy Tip: Davis could be an RB3 if he landed in a prominent situation like Miami.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware contract details

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:32:49 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware received a two-year extension worth $3.6 million for 2017 and 2018. The deal can be worth up to $9.6 million based on yards and touchdowns, and he's guaranteed $2.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: Ware had 72 attempts for 403 yards and six touchdowns in 2015 with Jamaal Charles (knee) injured for a big chunk of last year. He provides KC with valuable depth in the backfield, but it'll be an uphill battle to come anywhere close to those numbers with Charles expected back healthy in 2016. Ware won't be worth drafting in standard leagues to begin the year.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware extended

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:16:54 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are both signing contract extensions Thursday, March 31, after the two combined for more than 1,000 yards in 2015 after RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was out for the season. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: West and Ware were nice fantasy fill-ins for those that were scrambling to replace Charles early in the year. With Charles expected to return healthy in 2016, though, their roles will be cut back a bit. Perhaps KC will use them both more to preserve Charles, but less frequent touches will knock their fantasy value back down. West could still be an RB4 in deeper leagues, though.
