Chiefs | Dexter McCluster becoming bigger part of offense?

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 11:09:58 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster had a team-high seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 win over the Cleveland Brown. He also had one rush for five yards. "As a player, you never know when it's going to be your day," said McCluster, who was targeted by QB Alex Smith a team-high 10 times. "You just have to be there when it's time. I was able to get started early and get some balls early." His 13 touches were a season high, and the team has been looking for someone to step up and help lighten the workload for RB Jamaal Charles. Smith thinks the team will use McCluster more in the second half of the season.

Fantasy Tip: With Dwayne Bowe being limited with an injury, McCluster stepped up last Sunday. Bowe has been a disappointment, and McCluster's jack-of-all-trades versatility could make him a valuable asset down the stretch, especially in point-per-reception leagues. Consider adding him as receiver depth in deeper formats.

I've fought through a whole bunch of stuff that's been hurting me. ... I'm really a tough player and I'll play through pain." Charles practiced in full Friday, Sept. 13, and is listed as probable.

Fantasy Tip: Charles may not be 100 percent healthy, but as long as he's starting Sunday, he should be kept in your starting fantasy football lineup.

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 16:19:56 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (quadriceps) had 16 carries in the Week 1 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, giving him 800 for his career.

Fantasy Tip: Charles left the game for a period due to a quadriceps injury, but was able to return. It is something that bares watching for fantasy owners heading into Week 2, but it isn't likely to be that serious if they let him back in.

As expected, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) was among the inactives for the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, against the San Francisco 49ers.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles likes his role

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:57:18 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has adapted well to the new offensive scheme under head coach Andy Reid, and he's embracing the opportunity to catch more passes out of the backfield. Charles touched the ball on eight of the 14 plays for the first-team offense in the first preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Charles will be a huge part of this offense and will be extremely valuable in PPR leagues. Consider him a top-three running back in those formats, and he should go in the top five in all leagues.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles has mild sprain

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 10:54:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) is dealing with a mild foot strain, and he wasn't walking with a boot or a noticeable limp Tuesday, Aug. 13. He rode a stationary bike but didn't participate in practice. "People are speculating Lisfranc and all that," trainer Rick Burkholder said of the mid-foot injury that caused problems for former RB Larry Johnson. "He doesn't have any discomfort there. I've had him see two orthopedic surgeons and everyone agrees he has a mild foot strain." There is no timetable for when Charles will return to action, but it's unlikely he'll play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16. RB Knile Davis took most of the reps with the first-team offense Tuesday, and RBs Shaun Draughn and Cyrus Gray are battling for the No. 3 job.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is a late-round flier as a handcuff to Charles. The rookie can be explosive if given an opportunity. His touches will go up if Charles misses time, but even then, the Chiefs probably won't rely solely on him.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles update

Mon, 12 Aug 2013 08:53:51 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) left with a foot injury Monday, Aug. 12. X-rays were negative, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Charles owners and those targeting him in the top three picks of drafts can let out a sigh of relief. This reminds us that he's rather injury-prone, though, so if you take him early, it's wise to build strong RB depth around him. When healthy, Charles is one of the best point-per-reception threats in the league. Rookie Knile Davis would probably see the most action if Charles were to miss extensive time.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles praises team's offense

Thu, 27 Jun 2013 14:06:17 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles said he excited the team is going to use the pistol offense in 2013, an offense he is familiar with after running it in the 2008 season. "I ran it my rookie year and I love it," Charles said on NFL Network's "NFL AM" on Thursday. "I ain't never been around no offense that's about to be explosive and about to put me in space and making me make plays. I see Frank Gore had success with (the pistol) with the (San Francisco) 49ers. If he can have success, I hope I can have success as well."

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles to be big cog in passing game

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 05:35:34 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson confirmed RB Jamaal Charles will be a major part of the team's passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Charles proved his health last year with over 1,500 yards rushing. From 2004-2011 Brian Westbrook and LeSean McCoy averaged 65 catches a season for the Philadelphia Eagles in Andy Reid's offense. You can expect Charles to approach that, despite never catching more than 45 balls in a season. Charles appears poised to be one of the top running backs in 2013.
