2016 Outlook
Always a fantasy juggernaut, Jamaal Charles was off to a great start once again in 2015 as he had already accumulated 541 total yards and five total touchdowns by the end of Week 5. Unfortunately, it was in Week 5 when Charles once again broke the hearts of Chiefs fans and fantasy owners everywhere when he tore his ACL for the second time in his career. There aren’t many NFL running backs who’ve come back from torn ACL’s and picked up right where they left off by dominating the league, but Charles is definitely a player who did just that. He missed nearly the entire 2011 season before coming back in 2012 and setting a career high in rushing yardage with 1,509 yards. Now 29 years old, however, Charles is at a substantially higher risk for not being able to return to peak condition.

The concerns with Jamaal Charles are two-fold in that, he might not be fully recovered and thus may not be the dominant force that we once remembered him being. But in addition to that, there is a growing worry that the Chiefs might give into the current NFL trends and turn their backfield into a much more split by-committee approach. Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are not the physical beasts that Charles is, but they showed in 2015 that they are capable of producing serviceable numbers as a duo. Even if Charles remains healthy, they might cut into what has typically been one of the highest workloads of any back in the league. Still, Charles presents the kind of upside that is rare to find in Round 2 and would be the ideal complement to an elite WR should fantasy owners opt to go in that direction in Round 1. Even if he doesn’t get back to producing high-end RB1 numbers, his usage should at least allow him to finish in the range of an RB1.


News From The Past 90 Days
Eddie Lacy lands one-year deal with Seahawks
$3 million fully guaranteed
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Mar 14, 12:30 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Running back Eddie Lacy has agreed to a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, his agents said Tuesday. A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the deal is worth $5.55 million, with $3 million fully guaranteed. (ESPN)

FFToday'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.


Chiefs release Jamaal Charles
Set to count $6 million against salary cap

FFToday'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.
