Chiefs | Jamaal Charles expected to be released

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 14:55:39 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is expected to be released this offseason in order for the team to create salary cap space.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has dealt with knee injuries over the last two seasons and likely will be a free agent this offseason. Charles may not be able to handle a full workload anymore but could have a solid role for a team. Charles can be a No. 3 running back for fantasy owners depending on his team.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles hopes to be ready for 2017

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 10:57:27 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is working hard in order to be ready for the 2017 season, according to general manager John Dorsey. Dorsey said he does not know what will happen in March but sees Charles as a member of the team at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has been limited to eight games over the last two seasons and is still dealing with a knee injury. It is not known if Charles will remain with the Chiefs since they have Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West on the roster. Owners in fantasy leagues should monitor his situation because his fantasy value will depend on his role with a team.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could be released

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 09:42:58 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles may be a candidate to be released this offseason because he is scheduled to make $7 million in 2017 and dealt with knee injuries this season. Charles could return if the two sides can agree on a restructured contract.

Fantasy Tip: Charles was limited to 40 yards on 12 carries during the season and has dealt with injuries in the past, so he could hit the free-agent market this offseason. It is not known if Charles will be a starting running back in 2017 but he should have a solid role for a team. Charles probably can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy running back depending on his role.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles wants to keep playing

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 10:40:03 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) stated on his website recently that he wants to continue playing.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has played in only eight games over the last seasons and finished with 40 yards on 12 carries in 2016, so the Chiefs may be inclined to part ways with the 30-year-old this offseason. On the other hand, Spencer Ware's second-half fade may convince the team to bring him back. Assuming he returns to Kansas City, Charles figures to be a high-risk, high-reward mid-round pick in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles' season over

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 07:53:17 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) was not activated from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 21, and his season is over.

Fantasy Tip: Charles turns 30 next week, and he has had two season plagued by knee injuries. His draft stock will take a severe hit next season, and it may be a question mark if he returns to the Chiefs. Charles will probably fall into the RB3 range in drafts unless he lands on a team where he's the clear-cut back.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could return for playoffs

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 13:14:16 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) is doing well in his recovery from two knee surgeries. He is hopeful that he'll be able to return for the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Charles won't be fantasy relevant for the remainder of the regular season, but those who participate in fantasy games for the playoffs should pay attention to Charles' progress. Spencer Ware has filled in splendidly and both would likely be startable depending on the matchup.

Chiefs | Second scope good for Jamaal Charles

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 13:51:41 -0800

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) could return to the field this season thanks to his second knee scope. A return in late December or in the playoffs is still possible. Without the second scope, Charles would not have been able to return at all this season.

Fantasy Tip: This won't have much of an impact on Spencer Ware's fantasy value. Ware remains a weekly RB1 as long as he is healthy. That's including this week against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that allowed 100 rushing yards per game and nine total touchdowns in nine games to running backs.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles undergoes surgery

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 10:14:47 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday, Nov. 14.

Fantasy Tip: There was hope that Charles would be able to return for the postseason, but this surgery probably will end his season. Owners should consider Charles a No. 2 running back in drafts next season.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could return in January

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 07:29:08 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs are optimistic that RB Jamaal Charles (knee) could resume playing as soon as Week 17's game against the San Diego Chargers, according to a source. However, it is more likely that he would be available for a potential postseason run.

Fantasy Tip: Charles will need several weeks to recover from surgery to trim the meniscus in his right knee but his possible return will come too late to help most fantasy owners. Charcandrick West will serve as Kansas City's starting running back for Week 9's game against the Jaguars, although Spencer Ware should reassume the starting role once he fully recovers from a concussion.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles could return this year

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 05:22:01 -0700

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) had successful surgery Wednesday, Nov. 2, and there's a chance he could return this year.

Fantasy Tip: That seems pretty unlikely, but if you have the roster space, he could be a nice boost for the playoff run. Spencer Ware (concussion) hasn't cleared the concussion protocol, and Charcandrick West looks like a solid RB2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
