Sadly, this may be the end for J.C. He hasn't really 'played' in a year-and-a-half, and when he did, he wasn't the same player. After attempting to return from his second torn ACL, Charles wound up having to get both of his knees cleaned out towards the end of last season. He's still not participating in OTA's, so it's very likely that Devontae Booker beats him out for the change-of-pace role behind C.J. Anderson. Even if he sticks, he'll likely max out at 8-10 touches per game.

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.
