Ware had 20 carries for 75 yards and caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 24-3 win over the Jets.
Ware should have had a bigger fantasy game, but a short touchdown he appeared to score in the second half was questionably overturned to a lost fumble. In any case, Ware once again dominated the backfield touches in absence of Jamaal Charles (knee), as Charcandrick West had just three carries for three yards. Charles might be close to returning, but the Chiefs could elect to hold him next week since they have a bye in Week 5. If that's the case, Ware would be another strong play at Pittsburgh next week.
Ware has been used heavily during Charles' absence to begin the season, turning 21 carries in 127 yards and nine receptions (on 11 targets) into 177 yards. With one end-zone appearance also to his name, Ware will continue to be a boon to fantasy prospects until Charles is ready to return.
Ware has started both of the
Ware tallied 57 yards on 10 carries and hauled in two of three targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 19-12 loss to the Texans. He also lost a fumble.
Despite a largely dominant game by the Texans defense, Ware did manage success on many of his touches. He did have one glaring miscue, that being a lost fumble on a late second quarter carry that the Texans' Kevin Johnson returned deep into Kansas City territory. However, Ware did once again flash his playmaking skills with a 25-yard run and 34-yard reception, and could play a key role in Week 3 even if Jamaal Charles (knee) returns to action.
With Jamaal Charles (knee) considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Texans,
Ware is dealing with a sprained toe of his own, but after fully practicing Thursday, he's expected to suit up for Sunday's Week 2 matchup. While his ailment bears some consideration, Ware thrived in Charles' absence last weekend, when he posted 199 all-purpose yards and a touchdown as Kansas City's lead tailback. Should Charles indeed miss Sunday's game versus Houston, Ware would once again be in a position to benefit, with Charcandrick West poised for a change-of-pace role behind him.
