Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Limited duty in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

West carried the ball just once in Thursday's regular-season opener against the Patriots, but he that tote went for 21 yards and a touchdown. He also added a catch on his only target of the night for four yards.

As one of just two running backs currently on the Chiefs' roster, West would be the obvious candidate to replace Kareem Hunt in the backfield should he suffer an injury. However, it appears coach Andy Reid is comfortable allowing the rookie to take on a workhorse role for the team, limiting West to value mainly as a handcuff with upside if given an opportunity.

Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Preparing for Week 1 role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy suggested West, Kareem Hunt and C.J. Spiller will all have roles in Thursday's regular-season opener against New England,'s Adam Teicher reports. "These guys are all prepared," Nagy said. "They're all prepared to play. They all know they're a big part of this game plan."

Head coach Andy Reid has made it clear Hunt will get the start and lead the backfield, but that doesn't necessarily mean the rookie will handle a typical starter's workload. Consider Spiller was released and then re-signed over the weekend, West should be locked in as the No. 2 back, with his role potentially including a good chunk of the passing-down snaps. Facing a formidable opponent on the road, the Chiefs may eventually be forced into a pass-heavy approach that works in West's favor.

Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Bigger part of running back stable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

West should see some extra regular-season reps out of the backfield with Spencer Ware (knee) sidelined indefinitely, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Although Kareem Hunt will receive the majority of the club's carries with Ware out, coach Andy Reid suggested the other backs -- West and C.J. Spiller -- will rotate in as well. Prior to Ware's injury, West's foothold on a roster spot was rather shaky. That outlook has likely changed at this point, with both he and Spiller now expected to make the team.

Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Gets six touches against Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

West ran three times for a lost yard and caught three passes for nine yards in Friday's preseason loss to Seattle.

It was a crash back to earth for West, who slashed and dashed Cincinnati just a week earlier. After posting 1,329 total yards over the past two seasons in a supporting role, West's offseason has been a little disappointing with injuries and rookie Kareem Hunt climbing up the depth chart. If the knee injury suffered by Spencer Ware is serious, however, then all of the Chiefs' backs are bumped up a slot and all of a sudden West is back to his old role as key reserve and weapon in the passing game.

Chiefs' Charcandrick West: Impresses against Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

West rushed for 113 yards on seven carries -- including a game-high 50-yard run -- during Saturday's preseason win over Cincinnati.

West is battling to hold off rookie Kareem Hunt and first-year Chief C.J. Spiller, so this was a strong outing for the third-year running back. However, it's worth noting that West broke his 50-yard run in the fourth quarter when the Cincinnati starters were out of the game. Additionally, Hunt impressed against the Bengals' first-team defense. Still, West projects to have a role in the rushing attack to open the season. It just might not be a large enough one to provide reliable fantasy numbers.
