RB - FA
Week 8 Outlook
Jamaal Charles took to Twitter to officially announce his retirement on Wednesday.
Charles signed a one-day contract with the Chiefs to retire with the team who originally drafted him back in 2008. In his nine seasons with the Chiefs Charles averaged an insane 5.5 YPC. He was one of the best running backs of his generation, both in real life and in fantasy. The 32-year-old will likely wind up in the Chiefs ring of honor.
The Jaguars have released running back Jamaal Charles.
Charles saw just eight touches through two games. His release creates room on the roster for Carlos Hyde. T.J. Yeldon and Hyde will split touches until Leonard Fournette returns.
Jamaal Charles had one carry for two yards and one catch also for two yards as the Jaguars lost to the Texans on Sunday by a 20-7 score.
Charles is losing his role as RB2 with the addition of Carlos Hyde and could end up getting released when Leonard Fournette comes back from his injury. Charles had a great career but it looks like his comeback will be short lived.
Jamaal Charles rushed five times for five yards and caught one pass for five yards as the Jaguars lost to the Cowboys by a 40-7 score in Week 6 action.
Charles was recently signed by the Jaguars who are desperate for help at running back. Charles backed up T.J. Yeldon on Sunday and did not do much when he was on the field. The best days are behind the veteran running back and he is not worth rostering in fantasy leagues.
The Jaguars are reportedly signing Jamaal Charles, according to Adam Schefter.
With Leonard Fournette already declared out for Week 6 and Corey Grant hitting IR, the Jaguars are in desperate need of running back depth. It remains to be seen how much Charles has left in the tank, especially considering he hasn't been a productive fantasy asset in years, but he's worth a speculative add in very deep leagues.
