Chiefs | Charcandrick West getting healthy

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 11:08:29 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West played 33-of-85 snaps in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos and is getting more playing time lately "because he's simply been feeling better" after dealing with ankle and concussion issues this season, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Spencer Ware has slowed down considerably since serving as a high-end RB1 during the first half of the season, but West hasn't really done much to put any heat on him. As evidence of that, Ware saw 19 touches to West's three in Sunday night's overtime win. Ware remains a solid RB2 play, while West is a decent handcuff option at best.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West has decent outing

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 15:09:28 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West rushed for 39 yards on 13 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. He also caught three passes for 35 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: West was the starting running back against the Jaguars because of the injury to Spencer Ware, but owners probably were expecting more from him. His value for Week 10 will depend on Ware's status. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he starts again but probably can be avoided if Ware plays.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West poised to carry the mail

Fri, 04 Nov 2016 13:04:53 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West will get "most of the work" in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: As expected. West is shaping up to be a DFS superstar this week and potential week-winner for redraft league owners. The Jaguars are coming off a game in which they surrendered 225 total yards and two touchdowns to Tennessee Titans running backs, and Reid may lean heavily on the run as well considering Nick Foles will start for Alex Smith at quarterback this week. Bishop Sankey may see limited work, but he is not worth adding in any format at the moment.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West doesn't do much

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 19:28:12 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West ran four times for just five yards in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints and he had one catch for just three yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: West did absolutely nothing with his five touches, and he would probably be relegated to the bench or a healthy scratch if Jamaal Charles were 100 percent healthy right now. Avoid him in all fantasy leagues.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West ready to play

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 17:02:42 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: West should be active for the game but likely will be behind Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware in terms of playing time. Owners probably can avoid West unless one of the other running backs suffer an injury.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West fully practices

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 15:56:40 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: With Jamaal Charles back, West is now the No. 3 running back behind Charles and Spencer Ware. As long as those two are healthy, West needs to stay out of starting lineups.

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 17:10:12 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like West will be able to play in Week 6 but probably will receive limited playing time behind Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware. Owners in all leagues probably can avoid West.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West won't play in Week 4

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 12:28:53 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) has been ruled out for the team's Week 4 game Sunday, Oct. 2, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Jamaal Charles is expected to make his season debut in this Sunday night encounter, though it's probable that he'll be on a snap count as he's eased back into game action. Thus, owners might want to give him another week before relying on his services. Meanwhile, Spencer Ware can be comfortably slotted in as an RB1 this week.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West sitting out

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:27:11 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) will not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: West may be in danger of missing the team's Week 4 game, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. He has been backing up Spencer Ware and is seeing limited playing time and could lose more time when Jamaal Charles returns. Owners may want to look for other options to use even if Ware plays.

Chiefs | Charcardick West sits out

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 17:38:10 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: West's status will be known later in the week, so owners will need to monitor the situation. West likely would receive limited playing time if he is active for the game but could be a flex option for owners.

Chiefs | Ware, West split snaps evenly in Week 1

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 09:31:07 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West each played 34 of the team's 71 snaps in a Week 1 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the equal distribution of snaps, Ware owned a clear 18-9 edge in touches and 199-23 advantage in total yards. While West needs to be owned in most leagues should Ware get injured, it is becoming very clear the Chiefs' brass views the latter as the more dangerous offensive threat. Ware should be considered a RB1 for as long as Jamaal Charles is sidelined.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware expected to start

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 18:50:38 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware is likely to start against the San Diego Chargers in Week 1, according to head coach Andy Reid, but Reid said RB Charcandrick West and RB Knile Davis will also be used.

Fantasy Tip: If you plan on gambling on one of Kansas City's backs in Week 1, Ware is your best bet.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West a full participant

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 19:56:27 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (elbow) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 8.

Fantasy Tip: West could be worth a look as a flex option if Jamaal Charles sits out, but Spencer Ware is the preferred option if you are trying to take advantage of Charles' knee injury.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West takes part in practice

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 15:16:23 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (elbow) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: West will have a role on offense in Week 1 but could receive more work if Jamaal Charles is not able to play. West can be a decent flex option in leagues this week.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West sees first-team reps

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 19:05:12 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West has been seeing some starter's snap in training camp and the preseason, although RB Spencer Ware has seen the majority with RB Jamaal Charles (knee) slow to recover.

Fantasy Tip: West might see some meaningful touches early in the season as the Chiefs bring Charles along slowly, but he is only worth a look as a depth player in standard fantasy formats, and not someone to rely upon as a starter.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West works in practice

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 19:25:09 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (elbow) was back at practice Wednesday, Aug. 24. He has been dealing with an elbow injury.

Fantasy Tip: West is behind Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware on the depth chart, so he is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point unless injuries open up a more prominent role.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West day-to-day

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 15:27:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (elbow) is considered day-to-day because of an elbow injury.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that West is dealing with a minor injury, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He should receive limited touches behind Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware this season but could still be a late-round option in some leagues as a possible handcuff.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West out of practice

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 06:52:02 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (undisclosed) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: West is third fiddle behind Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware. The shifty West has talent, but if the other two are healthy, there aren't enough footballs to go around for him to show it much. He's worth a depth grab late in drafts.

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 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.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West still sick

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 12:54:12 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (illness) is making progress from an undisclosed illness, according to head coach Andy Reid, but he has missed four straight days of practice.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like West is dealing with anything serious. He should maintain his status as Jamaal Charles' backup in 2016 and is a top handcuff later in drafts.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West contract details

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 11:50:43 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West was signed to a two-year contract extension worth $3.6 million with $2.35 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: West had a big impact in his rookie season with Jamaal Charles (knee) injured for most of the year, and he rushed 160 times for 634 yards and four scores and also caught 20 passes for 214 yards and another touchdown. His role will be scaled back a bit with Charles healthy, but West has RB4 value in point-per-reception leagues as Charles' handcuff.

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 | 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.

Chiefs | Decision time on Jamaal Charles

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 15:53:44 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was hurt and then the team went on average 135.9 yards - fifth in the league - in 11 regular season games with RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware. He has a $2 million report-to-training camp bonus due in July, and he could be asked to take a pay cut and/or relinquish that bonus to return while earning it back through incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has been a productive back in this league, but he has had multiple injuries to his anterior cruciate ligament and he is getting up there in age. Fantasy owners should be preparing for a steep decline going forward.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West leads the backfield

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 17:14:05 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West carried 17 times for 61 yards and a touchdown and has two catches for 15 yards in a 27-20 loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 16.

Fantasy Tip: West was effective at times after Jamaal Charles was lost for the year, but as long as Charles is ready for the start of 2016, West will only have value as a potential handcuff.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West struggles in win

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 21:21:15 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West posted just 34 rushing yards on 13 carries in the Week 17 game against the Houston Texans, and he added one reception for minus-2 yards.

Fantasy Tip: West was outplayed by Spencer Ware, who had 16 runs for 76 yards and a touchdown. Ware is the player for FantasyScore owners to target heading into the wild-card game against the Houston Texans next Saturday.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West back at full strength

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 15:02:32 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West ran for 76 yards and scored one touchdown in a 34-14 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: West ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has battled injuries in the past few weeks but appears to be back to near normal. He's effective now in daily FantasyScore contests.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West runs 10 times

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 21:09:49 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West ran 10 times for 54 yards in the Week 14 game against the San Diego Chargers, and he was targeted once in the pass game with no receptions. He had a 63-yard reception called back due to an offensive pass interference call on TE Travis Kelce.

Fantasy Tip: West saw a majority of the carries after Spencer Ware left the game with an injury to his ribs. West could be a sleeper fantasy option heading into Week 15 against a poor Baltimore Ravens defense, especially if Ware is inactive.

Chiefs | RBs to rotate in KC

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 09:59:13 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West and RB Spencer Ware will likely continue to rotate, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Both could still have value, but obviously it's not ideal for either back. West ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) will probably be the multiple-down guy with Ware ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) coming in for red zone situations. West is a risk against the San Diego Chargers at his price, while Ware makes a decent midrange grab on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware probable

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 15:16:04 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) and RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 4, and are listed as probable for the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: West ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should regain his starting role, but Ware likely will have solid role in the offense after his play the last few weeks. West probably has more fantasy value at this point, but both players could be starting options for owners.

Chiefs | KC running backs have full practice

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 17:10:25 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West (hamstring) and Spencer Ware (hamstring) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: West ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) appears ready to return to duty against the Oakland Raiders, but we expect Ware ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) will continue to remain involved in some capacity. Even while sharing touches, West, as the go-to running back, has appeal on FantasyScore against a top-10 matchup against the run.

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 09:55:51 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) will be a full participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: West ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) has a decent matchup against the Oakland Raiders this week and will be a high-end RB2 consideration on FantasyScore.

Chiefs | KC ground game excelling

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 11:16:20 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are averaging 152.6 yards per game during the team's five-game winning streak. With RB Jamaal Charles earlier in the year, the Chiefs were averaging 109.8 rushing yards per game.

Fantasy Tip: With West injured and sitting out in Week 12, Ware filled in admirably for fantasy owners who took a chance on him. It's unclear if West is in line to return this weekend, but whoever faces the Oakland Raiders as the starting running back is certainly worth a look on FantasyScore at a cheaper salary. The Raiders are a top-10 PPR fantasy matchup for running backs.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West out for Week 12

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 07:40:03 -0800

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) will not play in Week 12's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Remove West ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) from all fantasy lineups immediately. Spencer Ware ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) will serve as the starter against the Bills, on the heels of a two-touchdown performance against the Chargers in Week 11, with Knile Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) serving as the backup.

Chiefs | Spencer Ware to start against BUF

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 07:05:31 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware will be the starting running back for Week 12's game against the Buffalo Bills. RB Knile Davis will also be active for the game. RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) is considered a long-shot to play, although the condition of his hamstring has improved.

Fantasy Tip: Ware ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) had 96 yards on 11 carries with two touchdowns in Week 11's game against the San Diego Chargers and should be a solid option in all fantasy formats this week. Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and West ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West questionable

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 14:54:20 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as questionable for the Week 12 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: West ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) did not practice at all this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. Owners should have other options ready in case West is ruled out. Spencer Ware ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) would start if West does not play and could be a solid fantasy option since he played well in relief in the last game.

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 10:35:40 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) is out of practice Friday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look good for him this weekend. Spencer Ware ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) broke out with an 11-96-2 game after West's injury last week. He's an RB2 option against the Buffalo Bills on FantasyScore.

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 15:31:57 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (hamstring) left the Week 11 game against the San Diego Chargers due to a hamstring injury. He is questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs have a comfortable lead, so it might be Spencer Ware finishing up the game, much to the dismay of West's owners in FantasyScore and standard leagues. West's injury is one to watch going forward.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West has been awesome

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 13:39:38 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West has averaged 133 yards from scrimmage in the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: With Jamaal Charles done for the rest of the year, West will continue to have a huge role in this offense. Based on his workload alone, he has RB2 value basically every week. In Week 11 against the San Diego Chargers -- one of the worst rush defenses in the NFL -- he'll be a strong play in all formats.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West posts giant line

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 22:39:50 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Charcandrick West ran 24 times for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Denver Broncos, and he added three receptions for a game-high 92 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: West was having a strong game, but an 80-yard touchdown in the second half turned it into a giant stat line. He has been a tremendous value in FantasyScore, and he isn't even close to being pushed for carries by Knile Davis or De'Anthony Thomas.

Chiefs | Knile Davis inactive for Week 10

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 12:13:36 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is inactive against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Nov. 15. RB Spencer Ware should back up RB Charcandrick West.

Fantasy Tip: Ware will play sparingly as long as West is healthy. Davis' fantasy value appears to be nearly non-existent at this point.

Chiefs | Knile Davis unlikely to play

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis is expected to be deactivated for Week 10's game against the Denver Broncos. RB Spencer Ware is expected to serve as the backup to RB Charcandrick West.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has averaged just 2.4 yards per carry on 21 rushing attempts this season and hasn't seen an increase in playing time despite Jamaal Charles going down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 5. Ware ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has four carries for 20 yards over the past two weeks. Neither player is a great fantasy option at this point.
