2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Not since the days of Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson have the Chiefs had a fantasy producer anywhere near the level of running back Jamaal Charles. Charles, who was a consensus round 1 pick in 2013, lived up to the hype and then some with a monstrous fantasy season that made him the top-scoring fantasy back in practically all formats. Although he finished third in rushing yards, his 693 receiving yards were nearly 100 yards better than the next best back (Danny Woodhead), and his 19 total touchdowns were five more than that of any other rusher. You will hear whispers about increased opportunities for backup Knile Davis, but Charles will likely shoulder another heavy load in 2014, which makes him one of a few candidates for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy football drafts this season. Of course, the high number of touches also makes Charles a candidate for injury, but given the lack of true “feature backs” remaining in the league, the potential reward far outweighs the risk of drafting Charles with your top draft pick this season.

Comment: Still love Jamaal, just not at No. 1. The Chiefs have numerous injury issues and offensive line is becoming a growing concern.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jamaal Charles expected to play
Chiefs RB did practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 12, 1:45 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Andy Reid said Jamaal Charles would play Sunday. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Charles is expected to be listed as Probable when the injury report comes out later today. Charles got his knee, ankle bent the wrong direction last week and missed practice on Wednesday. Unless there is a setback expect Charles to be his usual self in a nice matchup against the Raiders.


Injury No practice for Jamaal Charles on Wednesday
Knee, ankle injuries for KC running back
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 10, 11:50 am

Kansas City Chiefs
Fasano, Jamaal Charles, bailey, and Hali will not practice today (Adam Teicher via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday that Charles has a "tender" knee and ankle. It's unlikely Charles will practice much this week but he should be good to go against the Raiders on Sunday.


Injury Charles likely to play, Probable on Injury Report
Chiefs should have star running back available Monday night
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 27, 3:00 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is listed as probable on the team’s injury report for Monday night’s home game against New England, meaning he is almost certain to be available to play. Charles suffered a high ankle sprain in a week two loss at Denver after only two carries — an output that followed only seven carries in the season opener against Tennessee. (Kansas City Star)

FFToday's Take: Charles was limited in practice this week but it appears he will get the start Monday night against the Patriots. Owners can safely insert him into their lineups but this may be a scenario where Andy Reid will sprinkle in Knile Davis more than normal. I'd expect a 70-30 workload split between Charles and Davis.


Injury Jamaal Charles to practice Thursday
Head coach thinks Charles will play
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 25, 12:45 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs plan to expand Jamaal Charles' role in practice today and see how he does. Berry and DAT are more iffy. They may not practice (Adam Teicher via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Andy Reid said "Yeah, I think so" in a response to a question whether Charles would play on Monday night. It sounds like Charles will play unless he has a setback in practice this week.


Injury Charles not expected to play, gametime decision
Will test injured ankle in pregame warmups
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 21, 8:37 am

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is not expecting to play today, I’m told. Will still test it out pregame. Looking like Knile Davis (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It should be noted that an hour earlier Rapoport reported that Charles was a "gametime decision" and that Charles injury was more of a bruise than an ankle sprain which gives him "a real chance". We likely won't know Charles' real status until inactives come out. Chiefs play at 4:25 pm Eastern.
