Chiefs | Jamaal Charles limited in OTAs

Thu, 19 May 2016 10:24:44 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will be limited in organized team activities, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is expected to be ready well in advance of the season. It's fair to expect his workload to be tapered with Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware also proven runners. At 29, it's reaching to expect another 1,500-yard rushing season. However, he should remain a steady RB1 with West a low-end RB3 and Ware an RB5 flyer.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles has been running

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 10:43:57 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been running but isn't cutting in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. "I'll be ready," Charles said of being back out there for training camp. "I can't wait."

Fantasy Tip: Charles will be 30 this December, and his injury history is extensive at this point. He'll surely be rested more often after Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware were effective in Charles' absence last year. But when healthy, Charles still is one of the more productive backs in the NFL, and he can return to RB1 status, especially in PPR leagues.

Chiefs | No OTAs for Jamaal Charles

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 11:25:56 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) said he probably won't participate in organized team activities, but he should be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs definitely don't want to overwork Charles this offseason, especially coming off a serious knee injury. If Charles can fully recover and avoid suffering any setbacks, he should be drafted as a RB1 again in 2016.

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 | Jamaal Charles will be ready

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 06:16:49 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) has been working out at the team's facility and will be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is 29 and coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The position doesn't have as many slam dunks as it used to, so it's feasible to consider him just under the elite tier.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles not going anywhere

Fri, 26 Feb 2016 10:20:53 -0800

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not be cut, according to general manager John Dorsey. "He will be an important piece of this team moving forward," Dorsey said. Dorsey also said Charles is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Charles has an injury prone label on his head, but when he's healthy he's arguably one of the most dynamic running backs in the NFL. He'll likely slip in fantasy drafts this fall because of another serious injury, but that means he could be had at a bargain as an RB1, especially in PPR formats.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles likely to stay

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 11:07:56 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee), who is apparently ahead in his rehab from a knee injury, is likely to remain with the Chiefs in 2016, according to general manager John Dorsey. "Well, as I look at it right now, Jamaal … I think he may be ahead of schedule in terms of his rehabilitation," Dorsey said. "The guy is an extremely talented player. Love him to death. Love how dirty-tough he is. Yeah, he's a Chief." The Chiefs could save around $5.3 million by releasing Charles.

Fantasy Tip: Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware more than picked up the slack after Charles' injury last year, which would lead some to believe they can do it again without him. But Charles is an elite running back talent and is even more valuable in PPR leagues. However, he's injury prone, which may cause him to slide into the second round in drafts this year.

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 | Jamaal Charles ahead of schedule?

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 19:15:55 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) may be ahead of schedule as he rehabs from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to general manager John Dorsey.

Fantasy Tip: Charles' rehab is apparently going well, and there is a good chance he is ready for the start of the 2016 season. Despite the injury risk, Charles has too much upside as a runner and a pass-catcher to slip beyond the first couple of rounds of fantasy drafts.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles will be back

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 12:32:29 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will be back for the start of the regular season this year, according to general manager John Dorsey. "The guy is an extremely talented player," Dorsey said. "I love him to death, love how dirty tough he is. Yeah, he's a Chief." Charles missed all but five games in 2015 with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.

Fantasy Tip: Charles is one of the all-around best running backs in the league still, but he's had serious issues with staying healthy for a full season. For that reason his draft value will fall a bit, but he's definitely still worthy of RB1 status, especially in point-per-reception leagues.
