The Chiefs offensive line is a bit of a worry but Charles should still dominate in 2014. Andy Reid installed his offense extremely quick in Kansas City and they should be even smoother in year two. Charles will once again be force in fantasy.
A lot of people are going to reach for Martin but the emergence of Mike James, showed me how bad Martin was during the first half of the season. Buyer beware.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
Core O-line dismantled in free agency, TD production (19) tough to repeat.
Clear cut bell cow back with injuries to Sims and James.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Charles led the lead in receiving targets last season with 104 while also running the ball 259 times! Andy Reid wants to limit his high workload slightly in 2014 as Charles touched the ball 21.9 times per game last year. Knile Davis is a safe and talented backup and will only be in while Charles rests. You can still expect 300 touches from Charles this season in Andy Reid’s Offensive Scheme. You know what you’re getting with Charles.
Tampa Bay is coupled with a very questionable Offensive line along with a brand new OC, Jeff Tedford that has never coached in the NFL before. Tedford has been at coaching at Cal the past 10 seasons, so it’s hard to suggest what his offense will exactly look like . ESPN Bucs reporter says “the Bucs want to use a rotation at the RB position this season,” as both new head coach Lovie Smith and Jeff Tedford are very fond of. “One running back just can’t make it through the season,” says Smith. The new regime in Tampa are not the ones who drafted Doug Martin, but they are the ones who spent a Top 70 pick on receiving back Charles Sims. Lovie Smith remains committed to Doug Martin being big part of their offense, but expect Charles Sims to replace him on passing downs while Rainey and James are also mixed within the Running Back Committee.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Finished 3rd in rushing with 1,287 yards. Targeted 104 times with 7 TDs in passing game. I expect a lighter workload for Charles in 2014, as he averaged almost 22 touches per game. It will be tough for him to repeat 7 rec TDs, but still worthy of a top three pick.
Played in only 6 games last season due to a torn labrum in his shoulder. Look for Martin's workload to diminish this season as Tampa Bay drafted Charles Sims in round 3 to give Martin a breather on occasions during passing downs. Martin should be drafted as a RB2 with RB1 upside. Tampa wants to rotate their RBs this year.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
JC Superstar should continue his fantasy dominance with checkdown king Alex Smith realizing Charles is probably his team's best receiver and using his track athlete burst to rack up a high yards per carry.
Doug Martin probably belongs in tier three for now but as an ‘old regime’ back who has to deal with a very impressive rookie in Charles Sims, who is already a better receiver out of the backfield and who is a more exciting runner, he gets knocked down a tier due to his forecasted value hit.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Charles might carry the ball a little less but he's amazing and Andy Reid running backs own all.
The talent is there but that huge role may not be. He should still be a threat for the top-5.

Bumping him up into 2nd tier. Going to touch the rock a lot.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Injuries to the line have us worried a bit, but not enough to knock him out of our top 3.
With Sims, the rookie, suffering injury, the threat of RBBC has quickly vanished. Martin's ADP hasn't rebounded since those threats, though, which is great news for those looking for a low-end RB1 outside of the top 20 overall.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
More issues along the Chiefs line are troubling, even for a rusher of Charles' talent.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Despite turning 28 years old this year, Charles has only 1043 career carries and 222 career receptions. He should be a good bet to repeat his strong season in Andy Reid's friendly running back offense. The Chiefs offensive line is a mess, which is the main reason I flipped Peterson and Charles.
I think Martin will have a bounce back season in Lovie Smith's run oriented offense. I also do not view the torn labrum injury that cut his season short as an injury as that screams injury prone. I have lowered him in my rankings due to a Buccaneers offensive line that has been awful at run blocking in the preseason. Trading for G Logan Mankins will help, but quick fixes don't usually work on the offensive line.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
I'd be happy with any of the top three backs here.I believe Charles will once again be the Chiefs offense and that means lots of fantasy points. Yes Knile Davis will get some work, but we know who the stud is for KC.
Muscle Hamster's stock has fallen a bit with talk of his role being reduced, but I see Tedford upping the run game and that should compensate for any spreading out of touches for the running backs. Martin is still a top tier player.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
He's terrific, but it's mildly concerning that the KC O-line is in a state of transition.
A hard guy to peg. Tampa O-line has taken hits.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
There is no better RB selection for PPR leagues than Jamaal Charles.
He is a forgotten RB except if you were burned last year by his injury. He will slip in drafts, but his amazing upside can not be overlooked.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Served up a colossal dud in W1 (11 touches, 34 YFS), and O line has issues, but HC Reid admits he underserved his star
Workload no longer much of a concern with rookie RB Smis injured; 27% of career fantasy PTS came in 2 of his 22 games played
