2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Always a fantasy juggernaut, Jamaal Charles was off to a great start once again in 2015 as he had already accumulated 541 total yards and five total touchdowns by the end of Week 5. Unfortunately, it was in Week 5 when Charles once again broke the hearts of Chiefs fans and fantasy owners everywhere when he tore his ACL for the second time in his career. There aren’t many NFL running backs who’ve come back from torn ACL’s and picked up right where they left off by dominating the league, but Charles is definitely a player who did just that. He missed nearly the entire 2011 season before coming back in 2012 and setting a career high in rushing yardage with 1,509 yards. Now 29 years old, however, Charles is at a substantially higher risk for not being able to return to peak condition.

The concerns with Jamaal Charles are two-fold in that, he might not be fully recovered and thus may not be the dominant force that we once remembered him being. But in addition to that, there is a growing worry that the Chiefs might give into the current NFL trends and turn their backfield into a much more split by-committee approach. Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware are not the physical beasts that Charles is, but they showed in 2015 that they are capable of producing serviceable numbers as a duo. Even if Charles remains healthy, they might cut into what has typically been one of the highest workloads of any back in the league. Still, Charles presents the kind of upside that is rare to find in Round 2 and would be the ideal complement to an elite WR should fantasy owners opt to go in that direction in Round 1. Even if he doesn’t get back to producing high-end RB1 numbers, his usage should at least allow him to finish in the range of an RB1.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Chiefs bumping up Jamaal Charles' workload
KC reportedly giving RB work faster than expected
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 18, 5:30 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
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)

FFToday'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
Chiefs RB should be ready for Week 1
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 16, 9:32 am

Kansas City Chiefs
ESPN's Adam Teicher reports that Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is practicing Tuesday. (ESPN)

FFToday'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
Stud RB should continue to see majority of touches
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Jul 26, 9:40 am

Kansas City Chiefs
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)

FFToday'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.
