Fantasy owners shouldn't sweat Jamaal Charles' holdout until Aug. 10
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

We've seen a bunch of players, especially a number of running backs, hold out of training camp and then struggle in the following year. Hopefully Jamaal Charles won't be one of those players, but he'll dramatically improve his chances of success if he reports to Chiefs training camp with plenty of time to prepare for the season. In my latest blog entry I give Aug. 10 as the date I'd want to see Charles back by. And if he's not back by then he probably won't be my top pick in Fantasy. Knile Davis is the must-draft handcuff starting in Round 10.

Jamaal Charles plans on holding out
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles will not report for training camp on Wednesday unless there's a breakthrough in contract talks, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported. Charles believes he's outplayed his current deal and deserves a salary comparable to the highest-paid running backs in football. 

The CBS affiliate in Kansas City, KCTV, was first to report the holdout

Charles totaled over 1,900 total yards last season with 19 total touchdowns, his best year in the pros, while helping the Chiefs reach the playoffs. In fact in the two years since coming back from a torn ACL he's totaled 2,796 rush yards, 929 receiving yards and 25 total touchdowns.

Speculation begins on a Jamaal Charles holdout
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

CBS affiliate KCTV in Kansas City reported Tuesday evening that Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is planning to hold out of training camp. When asked about the subject, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Charles might indeed not show up for the start of camp. The Chiefs expect him to show up according to the Kansas City Star

Camp opens on Wednesday for the Chiefs with the first practice on Thursday. Charles is allegedly seeking a new deal as he's paid $9 million per year less than Adrian Peterson and doesn't make as much as Reggie Bush and Ray Rice. Charles scored 19 touchdowns for the Chiefs last season.

Eric Fisher getting an early start
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs left tackle Eric Fisher, last year's No. 1 overall pick, practiced with rookies and fringe players at Tuesday's minicamp ahead of the full-squad training camp that opens Thursday, reports ESPN.com. Fisher is coming back from shoulder and sports hernia surgeries.

"I had the surgeries, so I needed to get out here, get situated before the vets get here," Fisher said. "I’m glad to be here early so I can get a jump on things."

Fisher played right tackle last year, so the extra time should help him adjust to protecting Alex Smith's blind side. He said he hasn't lost strength despite not being able to bench press following the shoulder operation.

"I’ve been in there working," he said. "When you can’t bench, there’s other things you can do. That’s what I was doing."
