Fantasy Tip: Charcandrick West, Knile Davis and De'Anthony Thomas will take over in the Kansas City backfield. West will probably be the starter, but Davis and Thomas will also be involved. West is definitely worth claiming if he is available in fantasy leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RBs Charcandrick West and Knile Davis both expect to split carries with RB Jamaal Charles (knee) expected to miss the rest of the season, and head coach Andy Reid said the two running backs will continue to split time without committing to anything on the depth chart. West had seven carries for 31 yards while Davis had just two carries for two yards in Week 5. "I'm not saying who is or is not the feature guy, but we need both of them," Reid said. "Both their games are different. We'll just see how that goes. You saw both of them played today, so we'll get back to the drawing board on that and get it right."
Fantasy Tip: West has been the primary backup to Charles this year after a solid preseason, so he'll likely have the first shot at the majority of the carries for the rest of the year. He's the pickup if you own Charles or are desperate for another running back. However, don't expect a ton of production from either West or Davis with Charles out of the picture.

Fantasy Tip: Maclin ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has 27 catches on 36 targets for 369 yards over the last three games, and he has logged double-digit targets in every game. Maclin is worthy of a starting spot at FantasyScore on a weekly basis, and his value could be on the rise with Jamaal Charles likely being lost for the season in Week 5.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Knile Davis ran just twice for two yards in the Week 5 game against the Chicago Bears, even after RB Jamaal Charles (knee) went down. It was RB Charcandrick West seeing the bulk of the carries once Charles left.
Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) might have some FantasyScore value going forward if Charles is lost for the season due to an ACL injury, but West ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) might be the better play given the sneak peek Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: West ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) worked ahead of Knile Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) in the stunning loss. Both will be players to target going forward if Charles indeed suffered an ACL injury to end his season.

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam on his right knee Monday, Oct. 12. Head coach Andy Reid said during his press conference that preliminary reports that he received suggested that Charles had a torn ACL.
Fantasy Tip: There is a possibility that Charles ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) could miss the rest of the season if the MRI exam yields similar results. Continue to check back frequently for official updates on his status. Charcandrick West ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had 31 rushing yards on seven carries against the Bears in Week 5 and appears poised to become the Chiefs' No. 1 back going forward. He should be grabbed in all seasonal formats if he is still available on the waiver wire. Knile Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could see increased playing time as well but is unlikely to see as many carries as West.

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) may have suffered a torn ACL during Week 5's game against the Chicago Bears based on initial tests, according to a source with knowledge of the injury. The team will receive more information after he undergoes an MRI exam. Charles exited the game during the third quarter after suffering a non-contact injury to his right knee and had to be helped off the field by two trainers.
Fantasy Tip: If Charles ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) does indeed have a torn ACL, he will be sidelined for an extended period of time. Charcandrick West ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is receiving the bulk of the carries for Kansas City in his absence, with Knile Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) also in line to receive increased playing time. Keep checking back for further updates on Charles' status.

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not return to Week 5's game against the Chicago Bears after suffering a non-contact injury during the third quarter. Charles' right knee appeared to buckle when he was cutting and he was helped off the field by two trainers.
Fantasy Tip: Check back regularly for updates on Charles' ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) condition. In the meantime, the Chiefs will rely on Charcandrick West ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Knile Davis ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) at running back, with West expected to see most of the carries.
Sun, 11 Oct 2015 11:57:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation because it looked like Charles suffered a potentially serious injury. Charcandrick West and Knile Davis likely would be more involved in the running game if Charles is out for an extended period of time.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Conley ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) caught two passes for 53 yards last week as a starter and likely will be receiving another start. Owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Conley ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) was targeted seven times in the last game but was only able to catch two passes for 53 yards. Conley could see a significant amount of snaps in Week 5, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) is good to go against the Bears and is a strong play on FantasyScore, as the Chiefs passing game still features Kelce in a big way, and the Bears can be beaten often through the air.
