#4 vs. STL

Jamaal Charles was the strength of the Chief's offense in their win against the San Diego Chargers. Charles recorded 95 yards rushing 16 of those yards coming on a 16 yard run that saw him spin into the end zone for a touchdown. He also added 12 receiving yards.

Fantasy Impact: Jamaal Charles owners in fantasy should be very satisfied with this production. Charles was the primary offensive weapon in this game.

For the second time this season Andy Reid regrets not using Jamaal Charles in critical situations. This time it was against the San Francisco 49ers. Against the Titans earlier in the year he was limited to seven carries. Charles was not in any of the Chiefs last ten plays. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Hopefully this means more involvement after the bye week. This week Charles owners are probably hitting the waiver wire for points.

Jamaal Charles ran 15 times for 80 yards and added one catch for 4 yards In Sunday's loss.

Fantasy Impact: Jamaal Charles, as expected, continues to be the Chiefs number one threat out of the backfield. Although he did not find the end zone, he did average 5.3 YPC proving he is back to his normal self. Charles continues to be one of the top fantasy backs in the NFL.

It is expected that the San Francisco 49ers will be a tougher test for Jamaal Charles and the Chief's offense. The 49er defense has had success thus far taking away the run game and short passes. It will be on Andy Reid to call another gem similar to Monday night's blow out of the Patriots. Alex Smith will need to be back on point as well. (Source: The Kansas City Star)

Fantasy Impact: We saw on Monday night that Andy Reid is quite capable of opening up the play book and running numerous types of formations, and misdirection plays. The key is the execution of these plays for they can easily back fire if the quarterback is not on point. Expect Jamaal Charles to be mixed in quite a bit against the 49ers, and to have a solid outing barring unforeseen circumstances.

Jamaal Charles totaled 108 yards and added three scores in his return from the high ankle sprain.

Fantasy Impact: That is the Jamaal Charles we knew from 2013. He ran 18 times for 92 yards and a score and added 3 catches for 16 yards and two scores. Andy Reid utilized much more as he said he was going to do and Charles proved he is still one of the top running backs in the league.

Jamaal Charles scored three touchdowns before heading to the locker room midway through the third quarter with an apparent injury which occurred during his third touchdown which saw him land awkwardly into the end zone after catching a pass from Alex Smith. Luckily it was only cramps and Charles was able to return after a visit to the locker room.

Fantasy Impact: While Charles shared carries with Kniles Davis his production was a huge relief to fantasy owners, who will now hold their collective breaths hoping he does not miss any more games due to injury. Luckily this was just a scare.

Jamaal Charles participated fully is practice on Saturday and looks like a good bet to play Monday. (Source: Pete Sweeney on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Charles now listed as probable, it is apparent he will suit up Monday night against a tough New England Patriots defense. Although he is a risky start coming off the high ankle sprain, you drafted him in the first round to play him, not let him sit on your bench.

Reagardless of the health of Jamaal Charles going into week four, he is a risky fantasy option against a solid New England Patriots run defense. (Source: Bleacher Report)

Fantasy Impact: Pete Sweeney on Twitter reported that Jamaal Charles is expected to practice with the team on Thursday, which is a good sign, however he also practiced some last week. The injury aside, the Chiefs are facing the Patriots who have allowed just 121 rushing yards and no touchdowns over the last two weeks. With the bum ankle, Patriots defense and Knile Davis likely earning at least a few carries, Charles is more of an RB2 or flex play in week four, if he suits up.

Andy Reid stated that Charles would practice and it follows that he should play in Week 4. (Source: BJ Kissel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Good news for Charles owners. Charles should be expected to have a featured role in next Monday's game, sending valuable handcuff Knile Davis back to the bench.

By Brian Tesch, Chiefs Correspondent, Sun, Sep 21st 3:39pm EDT

Jamaal Charles will not play today, as he has been listed as inactive. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Knile Davis will start in his place, and presumably get a hefty workload. If you have Charles in your lineup, get him out ASAP. Charles will most likely return Week 4, or shortly thereafter.

By Brian Tesch, Chiefs Correspondent, Sun, Sep 21st 12:57pm EDT

Per Jay Glazer, "Jamaal Charles still hurting this AM. Andy Reid wants him to show he can protect himself 100% in order to play him. Plan is to sit him unless he can convince them he can be full go" (Source: Jay Glazer via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It would have highly irregular if Charles would've made it back from a high-ankle sprain in less than a week. The prudent thing for those rostering Charles is to park him on your bench for the week. For those who picked up size/speed specimen Knile Davis this week, or are playing in a daily format, start Knile with confidence.

Andy Reid was pretty elusive about Charles in the press conference today, meaning Charles will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game. (Source: Kansas City Chiefs)

Fantasy Impact: Charles does not have a high-ankle sprain, but does have an issue with the ankle. He was seen making cuts and running well during position drills yesterday but clearly is not 100%. He is not a viable fantasy option this Sunday, in any format. The Chiefs will most likely limit him this week to avoid further injury. But If owners must start a RB from the Chiefs then it has to be Knile Davis, who opened some eyes last week with over 100 total yards against Denver.

By Steve Painter, Chiefs Correspondent, Thu, Sep 18th 11:29pm EDT

Jamaal Charles was limited in Thursday's practice. He has a slightly less tan 50 percent chance of playing this week. (Source: BJ Kissel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Reporters present at practice today say Charles moved well and was even making cuts in position drills. Perhaps the Chiefs have some sneaky motive here, but it appears he has a shot at playing, maybe on some sort of snap count. It's pretty obvious he never had the dreaded high ankle sprain.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Jamaal Charles has a high ankle sprain... tough injury for any player, especially a RB. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: What many were hoping as a minor ankle injury is now a much more severe one that will likely sideline an explosive runner like Charles for weeks. Now is the time to grab Knile Davis if he's still available.

By Steve Painter, Chiefs Correspondent, Sun, Sep 14th 11:22pm EDT

Jamaal Charles left the game against the Broncos in the first quarter with an ankle injury. He'll have an MRI Monday but early indications point to a mild sprain. (Source: Jason La Canfora on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Charles might play next week but Knile Davis needs to be owned everywhere. The injury was significant enough to keep him from returning and the Chiefs will be cautious given that they have Davis to man the position capably until Charles is fully healthy.

By Mark Horn, Chiefs Correspondent, Mon, Sep 8th 9:57am EDT

There is one thing that is apparent after Sunday's astonishingly poor showing by the Chiefs, that unless they can get Jamaal Charles out in space and relegate Alex Smith back to the game manager role he thrived in last year, it will be a long season. Charles understands his role, as he told Sean Keeler after the game: 'We can get worse or we can get good. My job is to get the team good.' The lack of creativity in the Chief's offense was apparent early. Gone were the flair patterns, screens, and sweeps that were so critical to last years success. (Source: http://arrowheadaddict.com)

Fantasy Impact: Charles will be a fantasy factor going forward. While this game was a bitter pill for fantasy owners, Andy Reid is a smart coach and will get back to what the Chiefs do best. With the injuries on the defensive side of the ball, time of possession will be of utmost importance for the Chiefs. What this means is getting the ball to Charles in space and providing an offensive game plan that will play to Alex Smith's strengths as opposed to his weaknesses.

Jamaal Charles and the Chiefs were thwarted by a stifling Titan defense in the opener, losing 26-10. Charles had 7 totes for 19 yards along with 4 receptions for another 15 yards. He did not see the end zone. Coach Andy Reid said that the Titan defense closed a lot of options for Charles to do much. (Source: Terez Paylor on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Don't panic on Charles just yet. Andy Reid is a great coach and Charles an elite talent. The Chiefs will right the ship but with today's losses on defense, it will be an uphill climb for the team.

By Steve Painter, Chiefs Correspondent, Thu, Sep 4th 10:33am EDT

Jamaal Charles is projected to rush for 86 yards with 1 TD and have 40 yards in receptions this week against Tennessee. (Source: FantasyPros)

Fantasy Impact: He was one of the top picks in fantasy drafts this year and is certain to please his owners. Mr. Versatility is poised for a big year in Andy Reid's offense and is a must start every week in all formats.

According to Ian Rapoport the Chiefs and Jamaal Charles have agreed upon a new 2 year contract extension, and he's on his way to St. Joe for training camp. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Charles is fresh off his 2013 MVP caliber season. Charles finished 2013 with 1,287 yards rushing, 693 receiving yards, and 19 TDs. The Chiefs do have some questions to answer after losing 3 offensive linemen to free agency, but with Charles, he's a big play waiting to happen. He's certainly deserving of a number 1 pick.

By , Chiefs Correspondent, Wed, Jul 23rd 2:21pm EDT

It was reported last night by KCTV5's Brad Fanning that Charles may hold out of Training Camp for a new contract. (Source: KCTV5)

Fantasy Impact: Charles is by far the most important player the Chiefs have heading into 2014. Charles, last season accounted for more than 1/3 of their offense. It's hard to believe that the Chiefs won't get this situation corrected in the short order. He has until 2 p.m. central time to report or he will begin to get fined.
