Jamaal Charles misses another preseason game

Jamaal Charles has missed the first two games of the preseason for the Broncos. Per head coach Vance Johnson, Charles is suppose to play in Week 3 of the preseason. Sounds like Johnson is being cautious with Charles.

Fantasy Impact

Charles has no value at the moment until he can get on the field and prove his worth. With another good showing on Saturday night by rookie De'Angelo Henderson, Charles just might be fighting for his roster spot this week.

Jamaal Charles cleared for camp

NFL Network's Nicki Jhabvala is reporting Denver Broncos running back Jamaal Charles (knee) is medically cleared for "everything" for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Although Charles is "cleared for everything" at the start of training camp, Jhabvala believes the team will "start him slow" and ease him back into action. With Devontae Booker sidelined for the foreseeable future with a fractured wrist, Charles, whose roster spot was in question, could find himself in a significant role in the offense when Week 1 rolls around. At his RB45 ADP, Charles is a steal at the back end of fantasy drafts due to his potential upside.

Jamaal Charles 'ahead of schedule'

Denver Broncos beat writer Troy Renck is reporting running back Jamaal Charles (knee) is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from left knee surgery. "I am doing everything," Charles said via TheDenverChannel.com. "I have been cutting the last couple of days with the guys during the offseason workouts. I feel like the way I am cutting that I am back to the normal me, man. It feels good to be moving around again," said Charles, who was limited to eight games the past two seasons because of knee injuries. "I have been knowing this the whole offseason (that the knee was fine). Nobody can take nothing away from me except God when my time is up. I am still 30 years old. I still have a lot of special stuff to do."

Fantasy Impact

Charles, who is recovering from a pair of left knee surgeries from last season, appears to be progressing on schedule in his rehab. The veteran rusher is entering his first year with the Broncos and could ultimately carve out a significant role in the backfield despite the presence of the inconsistent C.J. Anderson with a strong showing in training camp and if his health remains intact. At his current RB39 ADP, he is worth a late-round flier as his upside is sky high when playing at close to 100 percent.

Jamaal Charles to sit out of team drills at minicamp

Denver Broncos beat writer Jeff Legwold is reporting Jamaal Charles (knee) will not participate in team drills at this week's mandatory minicamp.

Fantasy Impact

Charles, who is still removing from a pair of knee surgeries from last season, will be held out of team drills at minicamp this week. However, the injury-plagued rusher is fully expected to participate in individual work off to the side. Currently, Charles' availability for the start of training camp remains up in the air. If Charles can make a full recovery and if his health remains intact, he could cut into presumed starter C.J. Anderson's workload in 2017. But if he suffers a setback, it wouldn't be surprising if the Broncos elect to move on from him before the start of the season.

Jamaal Charles says he can be 'the man' in Broncos backfield

Jamaal Charles believes he can be "the man" in the Broncos backfield this upcoming season.

Fantasy Impact

Charles is on the wrong side of 30 and still hasn't been cleared for full-speed in practice. The Broncos will be cautious with Charles, and have a stable of running backs that are sure to get a share of the workload this season. C.J. Anderson is still expected to lead the running back duties in Denver, and the Broncos will want to see more out of Devontae Booker in his sophomore season. Charles could provide the Broncos with great value as a change-of-pace back if he remains healthy. Unfortunately, that role won't provide Charles with much value from a fantasy football perspective.
