Fantasy Tip: Charles is expected to see a limited number of snaps after battling swelling in his knee earlier in the week, so he should be viewed as a risky play despite the favorable matchup. Spencer Ware will see most of the carries for Kansas City Sunday afternoon and makes a viable fantasy option in all formats.

Contrary to a previous report, the Kansas City Chiefs are optimistic that RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will be able to see limited snaps in Week 7's game against the New Orleans Saints, according to multiple sources. He will be tested in pregame warmups before the club decides whether or not to deactivate him.
Fantasy Tip: Despite a favorable matchup against a porous New Orleans defense that has allowed the most rushing touchdowns in the league (11), Charles should be avoided this week due to the uncertainty surrounding his health. He was a limited participant in practice Friday, Oct. 21, and has dealt with recent swelling in his surgically-repaired knee. Spencer Ware will receive the bulk of the carries for the Chiefs in Week 7 regardless of whether Charles suits up.

Fantasy Tip: Charles was a limited participant in practice Friday, Oct. 21, but has been dealing with recent swelling in his knee and was not expected to receive many snaps anyway. Spencer Ware will continue to receive the bulk of the carries and has a favorable matchup versus the Saints, while Charcandrick West merits consideration as a desperation flex option as Ware's handcuff.

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston (knee) did individual and position drills, as well as scout-team work, this week, and the team hopes he'll return in either Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts or Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

CB Kenneth Acker (shoulder), OG Jordan Devey (ankle) and OT Mitchell Schwartz (ankle) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 21, due to some swelling in his surgically repaired knee and will be listed as questionable for Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Tip: It's not uncommon for players coming off an ACL surgery to experience swelling, so owners need to stay tuned for more updates. Spencer Ware was already going to start and handle the bulk of the backfield touches this week anyway, so perhaps the team will rest Charles this weekend in order to get him right for the second half of the season. If Charles sits, Charcandrick West would be Ware's handcuff and could be worth a desperation flex play against the Saints' hapless run defense.
