Ware rushed 17 times for 77 yards, and caught both of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Saints.
Ware scored Kansas City's first points on a 46-yard reception, and ended up leading the team in both rushing and receiving yards. Meanwhile, Jamaal Charles mixed in for just one carry, and still appears to be too hampered by his surgically-repaired knee to siphon off much playing time. Ware should continue to be the focal point of this run-first offense as long as Charles is at less than 100 percent.
Ware rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries and caught two passes for 32 yards in Sunday's win over Oakland.
Ware got Kansas City on the board with a two-yard zone in for a touchdown and then set up the Chief's third score of the day, a screen to Dontari Poe, with a 45-yard dash in the third quarter. Jamaal Charles had his most productive game in over a year, but it didn't stop Ware from having a career-high in rushing yards. The young all-purpose back more than doubled Charles' touches, 26 to 11, and scored for just the second time this season. Age and cost are in Ware's favor to keep the starting job over Charles, his only potential downfall being a fumbling tendency. Sunday snapped a three-game fumble streak for Ware, though Charles - with is own fumbling history - is hardly a cure to such an issue.
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.
