2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
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
Injury Jamaal Charles not done yet this season?
Aging RB hoping to return for playoffs
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 8, 8:20 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
As his team plays tonight, #Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (2 knee surgeries) is doing well, working hard, hopeful to be back for the playoffs. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Owners should not be holding their breath on this news, if only because Charles would probably serve a change-of-pace back for Spencer Ware if he does return. The good news is that he is already feeling good and should be fine to play next season even if he cannot make it back in 2016.


Injury Jamaal Charles has scope on left knee
All but ruled out for the 2016 season
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 17, 12:45 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Jamaal Charles had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Monday. Previously had his right knee scoped. Had been experiencing problems in both knees. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The news keeps getting worse for Charles who previously had his right knee scoped. This latest procedure will kill There any hope of Charles returning for potential playoff games. Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West are locked in as the Chiefs top running backs.


Injury Jamaal Charles headed to IR
May need another surgery on knee
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 1, 5:30 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs on Tuesday placed running back Jamaal Charles on injured reserve, a league source told ESPN's Field Yates. Charles has had soreness in his surgically repaired right knee. The move to IR means he will miss at least eight weeks. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Charles missed last week's game after suffering a setback in Week 7. He was scheduled to see Dr. Andrews today. Charles can be dropped in redraft leagues as the Chiefs will move forward with Spencer Ware (concussion) and Charcandrick West. Ware isn't expected to play this week and the team is signed Bishop Sankey from the Packers practice squad.


Injury Jamaal Charles ruled out for Week 8
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 28, 2:30 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs coach Andy Reid says Jamaal Charles will miss Sunday's game with knee issues. (Terez Paylor on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Charles has experienced swelling in his knee last week and with Andy Reid playing it safe with Charles up to this point, it's not surprising Charles will miss Week 8. Spencer Ware will continue his role as the lead back in the Chiefs offense with Charcandrick West filling a backup role.


Injury Limited workload for Jamaal Charles
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 23, 8:35 am

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs optimistic Jamaal Charles will be able to play today with a limited workload, per sources, but want to test him pregame to make sure. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Charles popped up on the injury report Friday with swelling in his surgically repaired knee. He's off the radar as a fantasy play with limited action expected. Spencer Ware may lose a few carries to Charcandrick West, but remains a solid RB1 against the Saints in Week 7.
