Chiefs | Jamaal Charles practices in full

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 14:15:44 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (back) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is on the injury report this week with a new injury, but he's practiced in full the last two days, so he should be perfectly fine for Week 9 against the New York Jets. The Jets have held their own against rushers this year, so Charles may find it tough to return value on his $7,400 (14.8% of cap) this weekend.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles showed concussion symptoms

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 11:15:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (concussion) showed no signs of a concussion when he was checked after a helmet-to-helmet hit in Week 7, according to trainer Rick Burkholder. However, Charles said he was never checked, and he said after the game that the hit was no big deal. He changed his tune after the game: "It definitely hurt," Charles said. "A couple plays later, I just (saw) this light buzz around my eyes and I was trying to catch 'em. But I was like, 'Let's get the ball and run again.'" Charles had other concussion symptoms, as well, but didn't think he had a concussion. He was cleared from the concussion protocol Tuesday, Oct. 21, and was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but the team will continue to monitor him.

Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Charles has a very minor concussion, but it doesn't make him any less risky for Week 8 against the St. Louis Rams. Knile Davis ($3,100) and De'Anthony Thomas ($3,000) could be great FantasyScore bargains if Charles is limited or doesn't play at all.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles cleared to practice

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:41:28 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (concussion) was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but the team will continue to monitor him throughout the week.

Fantasy Tip: Concussions are serious business, making it no sure thing that Charles will be able to play in Week 8 against the St. Louis Rams. If he can't play, Knile Davis and De'Anthony Thomas will see big increases in workload. Consider Charles ($7,400; 14.8% of cap) is a dicey play at FantasyScore until we know more.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles finding room to run

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 18:56:53 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has averaged more than five yards per carry in each of the past two games, and offensive line coach Doug Pederson said improved play from the offensive line has helped boost the rushing attack.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs have a bye in Week 6, but Charles should remain a strong option at FantasyScore when he returns to action.

Chiefs | Andy Reid regrets play-calling decisions

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 09:36:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles didn't touch the ball on any of the team's final 10 plays of their Week 5 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, and head coach Andy Reid regrets his play-calling decisions down the stretch. The Chiefs failed to convert on a third and shirt early in the fourth quarter, electing to pass instead of run with Charles.

Fantasy Tip: Charles had 15 rushes for 80 yards but only one catch in the loss. Reid will have plenty of time to think about getting Charles more involved following the team's Week 6 bye. Expect Charles to see plenty of action in Week 7.

Chiefs | Coach talks Jamaal Charles' workload

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 12:04:22 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles received a limited amount of touches in Week 5, because the offense only ran 15 plays in the second half of the game, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Charles ran the ball 15 times and caught one pass during the game. Charles should continue to be in starting lineups each week despite his limited workload in Week 5.
