2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
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. Charlesí 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, Hillisí presence doesnít 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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jamaal Charles expected to play     -- Fri Dec 12 1:45 pm --

Chiefs RB did practice Friday
Andy Reid said Jamaal Charles would play Sunday. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)

FF Today'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     -- Wed Dec 10 11:50 am --

Knee, ankle injuries for KC running back
Fasano, Jamaal Charles, bailey, and Hali will not practice today (Adam Teicher via Twitter)

FF Today'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     -- Sat Sep 27 3:00 pm --

Chiefs should have star running back available Monday night
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is listed as probable on the teamís injury report for Monday nightís 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 ó an output that followed only seven carries in the season opener against Tennessee. (Kansas City Star)

FF Today'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     -- Thu Sep 25 12:45 pm --

Head coach thinks Charles will play
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)

FF Today'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     -- Sun Sep 21 8:37 am --

Will test injured ankle in pregame warmups
Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is not expecting to play today, Iím told. Will still test it out pregame. Looking like Knile Davis (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)

FF Today'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.
