The Broncos may very well cut Charles, and even if they don't, it seems apparent that CJ Anderson is their guy. With that being said, this is the all-time NFL yards-per carry leader that we are talking about so he shouldn't be ruled out for a potential RB1 season if everything falls into place.

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.
