2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The tremendous season Jamaal Charles had already made the backup running back position in Kansas City an afterthought, but a measly 3.45 YPC average made Knile Davis even more irrelevant in the Kansas City offense. Although he did vulture two touchdowns from Charles earlier in the year, Davis' only real value in 2013 came in Week 17 when the Chiefs sat their offensive starters, leading to a 27-carry day. He made the most of that opportunity, at least from a fantasy perspective , by rushing for 81 yards and two scores. Davis could see more touches in 2014, but he will remain essentially a non-factor for fantasy purposes unless there is an unfortunate injury to Charles. Even then, Davis is not nearly the talent that Charles is and could still end up sharing carries, most likely with 2014 fourth-round draft pick De'Anthony Thomas. Davis is a handcuff, but not a particularly enticing one until he can prove that he is a more effective runner.

Comment: Davis is a must handcuff for Jamaal Charles' owners.

News From The Past 90 Days
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 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.

Injury Charles questionable, re-evaluated Saturday
Sprained ankle
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 19, 4:35 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who is on the injury report with a sprained ankle, practiced with the starters on Friday, but coach Andy Reid wasn’t certain how much, if any, Charles will be able to play on Sunday against Miami. Charles was listed as questionable for the game. "We’re going to see how he feels after this practice," Reid said. "He moved around and did a decent job. He looked a little sore, but he did OK." (Kansas City Star)

FFToday's Take: We'll get a better indication of Charles' availability if he makes the trip to Miami tomorrow. If so, and he becomes a gametime decision, fantasy owners may be in a bind since the Chiefs play at 4:25 Eastern. Knile Davis would get the start and be a borderline RB1 if Charles doesn't play.

Injury Charles back at practice
Took part in warm-ups and cutting drills
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 18, 4:00 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
RB Jamaal Charles, who suffered a high ankle sprain in last week's game against Denver, was participating in the early portion of Kansas City Chiefs practice Thursday. His availability for Sunday's game against the Dolphins in Miami is uncertain. Charles went through warm-ups with his teammates and was then tended to briefly by trainer Rick Burkholder before joining the running backs for position drills. One such drill involved cutting through cones to catch a pass. Charles did this several times and appeared to pass these tests without a problem. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Charles' quick return to practice is an interesting turn of events after he did not go on Wednesday. Kansas City desperately needs a win, but it would be foolish for the team to rush him back if he has anything close to the high ankle sprain that was initially reported. Although the surprise return bodes well for Charles' Week 4 status and beyond, Knile Davis is the heavy favorite to dominate touches this week.

Injury Charles diagnosed with high ankle sprain
No timetable for return
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 15, 3:45 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles suffered a high ankle sprain, and S Eric Berry sprained an ankle in Sunday’s loss at Denver, HC Andy Reid said Monday. Reid provided no timetable for their returns. A high ankle sprain can often result in a multi-week injury, but Reid says Charles’ injury “doesn’t look to be a real severe one.” “It does have the component of a high ankle sprain. What does that mean? We’ll see,” Reid said. (Kansas City Star)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners know this drill pretty well by now. High-ankle sprains are often multi-week injuries and Charles would be doing himself and his team a disservice by trying to rush back. Knile Davis will step and replace him as the featured back in his absence. The second-year back should be considered a low-end RB1 in all leagues while Charles is out.

Injury Jamaal Charles out tonight, bruised foot
Didn't make trip to Carolina
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 17, 5:11 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Jamaal Charles will not play tonight for Chiefs vs. Carolina. Hearing it's a bruised foot. Didn't make trip to Charlotte. (Adam Teicher via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs beat reporter went on to say the team doesn't consider the injury to be serious. Knile Davis is expected to get the start in Kansas City's second preseason game against the Panthers.
