|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.
| Charles diagnosed with high ankle sprain|
No timetable for return

|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.

Didn't make trip to Carolina

|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.
