| Considered a top five-fantasy running back prior to last season, Charles suffered a torn ACL in Week 2, ending his season and leaving his fantasy owners with a massive hole in their starting lineups. Heading into 2012, the issue with Charles is clearly going to be how well his recovery has gone and when he will be back, close to 100%. On that front, having suffered the injury early in the 2011 season is a benefit. Charles’ game is all about speed and agility so any lingering effects of the knee injury will be amplified. The Chiefs signed Peyton Hillis in the offseason as a change of pace back and to handle the short yardage work with the expectation that he will likely see plenty of touches early in the season. Provided Charles returns to full health, Hillis’ presence doesn’t really impact his fantasy value given the 1,935 yards and eight touchdowns that he put up in 2010, splitting time with Thomas Jones. Consider Charles a lower tier RB1 with some risk in 2012.
|Eddie Lacy lands one-year deal with Seahawks -- Tue Mar 14 12:30 pm --|
$3 million fully guaranteed

FF Today's Take: Despite the signing it's expected that Jamaal Charles will visit the Seahawks on Wednesday. Lacy missed the majority of 2016 with an ankle injury playing in only five games but did rack up an impressive 5.1 yards per carry. This signing dampens the fantasy value of Thomas Rawls who's had injury problems of his own.

Set to count $6 million against salary cap

FF Today's Take: This was an expected move as Charles was set to count $6 million against the salary cap and has battled knee injuries over the past two seasons. Charles states he will be healthy for the 2017 season. Expect him to sign a one-year deal once free agency begins.
