|Primarily known for his fantasy value as Charles’ handcuff in the Kansas City backfield, Knile Davis showed up and impressed when given the chance in 2014. When Charles went down with a high ankle sprain early in Week 2 , Davis jumped right in and took over the duties as the Chiefs’ primary ball carrier, racking up 28 total touches for 105 total yards in that game. The next week, he continued to roll as he rushed for 132 yards and a touchdown. Charles returned in a Week 4 blowout win over the Patriots, but Davis still got 16 carries for 107 yards. From that point on, Davis primarily saw the field as Charles’ backup, but it’s that type of step-in-and-dominate skill that makes Davis one of, if not the most valuable handcuff in all of fantasy football. Expect more of the same from Davis this season, but understand that Charles does have a long injury history and Davis owners could be one injury away from having a fantasy RB1 on their hands.

|Never mind on Knile Davis. He put his helmet on and he's going to practice. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Davis suffered a knee injury in the Chiefs first preseason game on Saturday night. It was classified as a sprain but it appears the injury isn't too severe as he's back on the practice field Monday. He may be limited but it's a good sign for his availability this weekend against the Seahawks.
