2016 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 Chiefs bumping up Jamaal Charles' workload     -- Thu Aug 18 5:30 pm --

KC reportedly giving RB work faster than expected
Jamaal Charles expanding the workload, out there for 9 on 7 drills. Seem to be giving him work faster than expected. (Matt Derrick on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: This could mean any number of things, although it is never a bad development for an injured player to be able to be cleared to work more faster than expected. The most likely scenario remains Charles acting as the lead back with Spencer Ware mixing in every third series or so and stealing most of the goal-line work, at least early in the season. If he can stay healthy, patient owners should feel confident they'll have a high-end RB1 down the stretch.
Injury Jamaal Charles off PUP, practicing Tuesday     -- Tue Aug 16 9:32 am --

Chiefs RB should be ready for Week 1
ESPN's Adam Teicher reports that Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is practicing Tuesday. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Charles is recovering from an October ACL tear. He got in some work during minicamps, but he had yet to see any action in training camp after opening on the active/PUP. Charles will probably be limited for the rest of camp, but is likely going to be 100 percent before Week 1. He's actually being undervalued at this point.
Chiefs won't "limit" Jamaal Charles if healthy     -- Tue Jul 26 9:40 am --

Stud RB should continue to see majority of touches
Chiefs beat writer Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) on Twitter: "Chiefs won't limit Charles if he's healthy and he's the same player he was before the knee injury." (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: There's no reason to believe that Jamaal Charles won't continue to be a solid option in all fantasy formats, but he's going to lose some touches this season. The emergence of Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West -- who combined for 1,256 total yards and 11 scores last season -- means his workload should go down. A 65-20-15 breakdown among Charles-Ware-West makes the most sense.
