The Chiefs are committed to Spencer Ware and Charles as a running back by committee. Charles can be viewed as a mid-range RB2 in a plus matchup against the Saints. He had 11 touches in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact
It appears that Charles suffered a minor setback this week. He suffered a small amount of swelling in his knee and was limited in Friday's practice. However, Charles should be able to play in Week 7's favorable matchup against the Saints. Charles should be in the mid-range RB2/ Flex conversation until his role grows into a larger capacity as Spencer Ware continues to garner the lion's share of the touches in Kansas City's backfield.

Charles has a RB1 matchup against New Orleans, but he is probably more of a RB2 with all the carries and goal line work that Ware will vulture.
