FF Today's Take:West missed practice all week and it's likely he will be made inactive this morning but he's not officially been declared out as of yet. Ware is a volume-based play in a mediocre matchup against the Bills. This game figure to be low-scoring, so consider Ware an RB2 if/when West is made inactive.
Charcandrick West misses practice Thursday-- Thu Nov 26 8:00 pm --
Reid optimistic both could play Sunday
Running back Charcandrick West and wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas remained on the sidelines during Chiefs practice on Thursday.
West injured his calf and Thomas suffered concussionlike symptoms in the Chiefs’ victory at San Diego last Sunday. On Wednesday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he was optimistic both could play this Sunday against Buffalo at Arrowhead Stadium.
(Kansas City Star)
FF Today's Take:It's encouraging that Reid feels optimistic but it would be nice to see the Chiefs running back get some practice time in Friday. If West is unable to play this week, Spencer Ware would likely draw the start against the Bills with Knile Davis filling a backup role.
Charles officially out for the season-- Mon Oct 12 6:00 pm --
FF Today's Take:Absolutely devastating news for the Chiefs and all of Charles' fantasy owners. Kansas City will likely move on with some form of committee of Charcandrick West and Knile Davis, although both seem to have plenty of support within the Chiefs' front office. West's slashing style resembles Charles' while Davis is more of a pounder that has already shown he has the ability to carry the load. The team also plans on working out Pierre Thomas and Ben Tate.
ACL injury likely for Charles, MRI Monday-- Sun Oct 11 4:45 pm --
Chiefs lose star running back
Coach Andy Reid said the preliminary report he received was that Jamaal Charles had a torn ACL. He was scheduled for an MRI on Monday. He was injured without contact, while making a cut with Kansas City facing a first-and-goal from the Chicago 9.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Charles is likely done for the season. Charcandrick West has jumped ahead of Knile Davis on the depth chart and will be a hot waiver wire pickup this week.
