Player Outlook

Jamaal Charles is coming back from last year's torn ACL in his right knee, but he's expected to be ready for training camp and should once again be a solid Fantasy option in all leagues. In 2015, Charles was on his way toward another outstanding season when he tore his ACL in Week 5. Prior to that, he was averaging 17 Fantasy points a game in a standard league in his first four outings, but he has to come back from an ACL tear for the second time in his career (he hurt the left knee in 2011). The following season, in 2012, Charles had 285 carries for 1,509 yards and five touchdowns and 35 catches for 236 yards and one touchdown. He's 29 now, and the Chiefs will give touches to Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, but Charles still has the potential to be a Top 5 Fantasy running back. He shouldn't be drafted before Round 2, and you should handcuff him to West since he's expected to be in the No. 2 job. Charles should have one more great season left if his knee is OK, so hopefully he comes back at 100 percent and is ready for Week 1.

  • Chiefs' Jamaal Charles: Won't play Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Charles (knee) won't play in Saturday's preseason game against Chicago, the Kansas City Star reports. This nugget is not particularly surprising, given that Charles only recently came off the Chiefs' PUP list, but on the plus side, the veteran running back -- who tore his right ACL in Week 5 of last season -- has continued to increase his level of practice participation of late.

  • Chiefs' Jamaal Charles: Continues to progress
    By RotoWire Staff

    In his fourth practice since coming off PUP, Charles (knee) did some work in full-team drills Tuesday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Charles' continued progress is encouraging, but the Kansas City Star notes that the Chiefs aren't inclined to push the running back into preseason action. When asked Tuesday if Charles or LB Tamba Hali were candidates to take the field Saturday against the Bears or next week against the Packers, coach Any Reid said, "only if I feel if they're right. But I'm not going to stick them out there if there"s a question on it."

  • Chiefs' Jamaal Charles: Unlikely to face Bears
    By RotoWire Staff

    Charles (knee) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Bears, according to coach Andy Reid. Charles has been increasing his practice workload each day since being activated from the Chiefs' PUP list last week, so although Saturday's preseason game may come too early for him, Charles is still making good progress in his return. Should he indeed sit out against the Bears, Charles would have just one preseason tilt left to test his surgically-repaired knee before Week 1, but it's unclear whether he would be involved in that contest. Nonetheless, given the positive reports from recent practices, it seems like Charles should be ready in time for the regular season regardless of how little he plays in the preseason.

    Charles (knee) won't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. Following his activation from the PUP list Tuesday, Charles was a participant until the start of full team drills both Tuesday and Wednesday. With the uptick in practice reps so quickly in the process, he's backing up the assessment from head coach Andy Reid that Charles will be ready to roll in Week 1. While he won't take the field in Saturday's preseason contest at Los Angeles, Charles would pass a clear threshold in his recovery from a torn ACL with an appearance in the Chiefs' third or fourth exhibition.
