It's the Jaguars, and Jamaal could end up with the weeks highest RB totals.
With Dwyer getting the surprising boot from Pittsburgh, guess that means Redman is the guy for now. I'm sure we'll see a little of Felix Jones as well. Seems baffling to me on why the Steelers let Dwyer go but I wouldn't be shocked to see him reunite in Arizona after Ryan Williams gets injured.
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Jamaal had Peyton Hillis slowing him down in 2012. Jamaal also had Matt Cassel at QB and a defense that was always banged up, led by an angry teddy bear in Romeo Crennel. Bring in Andy Ried, a healthy defense, and most importantly Alex Smith. Charles could easily move to #4 by the end of the preseason. Alex Smith keeps drives alive, Jamaal just needs his touches.
Redman is next in line if Bell does not do the job he is supposed to do. Redman has proved that can be a capable RB#3 if he gets the job, with RB#2 upside. For now forget about drafting Redman, but watch to make sure Bell is legit in the preseason before the Steelers go all in on the Rookie.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
It is a perfect storm for Charles. The Jaguars were 29th against fantasy running backs last year and it would be hard to imagine the Jaguars blowing out the Chiefs, which can limit a back's touches. Charles should be the focal point of the Chiefs offense, which should lead to a monster game.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Easily top three in PPR in new offense
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Jags are soft on D and Charles is primed for a huge season. It should get off to a hot start in week one.
He's the starter with a good matchup. That has to count for something, right?
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Charles goes into Jacksonville against a team who gave up the third most fantasy points and second most rushing yards per game in the last half of 2012. They have defensive minded coach in Gus Bradley, but a very young defense. It should take them a while to come together.
 
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Charles' outstanding comeback season was completely lost in the shuffle of the Chiefs' debacle of a season, but he ran for over 1,500 yards coming off of an ACL injury of his own. His relatively pedestrian touchdown production is the only thing keeping him this low.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
With the addition of Alex Smith and Andy Reid, Charles will be the focus of a Kansas City offense poised for a bounce-back season. Charles finished 2012 with 1,509 rushing yards, but only 5 TDs. He also added 35 receptions for 236 yards and 1 TD. These are impressive stats from a last placed team making replacements and major upgrades in Andy Reid, Alex Smith (QB) and Number 1 Overall Pick Ė Eric Fisher (Offensive Tackle). Thatís a winning combination that canít be ignored.
