  Chiefs | Dexter McCluster becoming bigger part of offense?    Tue Oct 29, 02:09 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster had a team-high seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 win over the Cleveland Brown. He also had one rush for five yards. 'As a player, you never know when it's going to be your day,' said McCluster, who was targeted by QB Alex Smith a team-high 10 times. 'You just have to be there when it's time. I was able to get started early and get some balls early.' His 13 touches were a season high, and the team has been looking for someone to step up and help lighten the workload for RB Jamaal Charles. Smith thinks the team will use McCluster more in the second half of the season.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to take note here. Andy Reid has finally figured out how to use McCluster as a receiver, and he's thriving with a bigger role. The Chiefs are going to have to open up the offense in the near future when they play teams like the Chargers and the Broncos.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) said he isn't sure if he'll play in this week's preseason game. 'Playing in the NFL you get weird injuries,' Charles said. 'This is one of the weird injuries I've had. It started in my foot and it traveled all the way to the top of my foot and now it's stuck in the middle of my right leg.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners would feel more confident about drafting Charles with a premium pick if they could see him in the dress rehearsal for the regular season aka week three of the preseason. This foot injury has been categorized as mild and the Chiefs are taking it easy on their superstar RB so they don't rush him back too soon.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has adapted well to the new offensive scheme under head coach Andy Reid, and he's embracing the opportunity to catch more passes out of the backfield. Charles touched the ball on eight of the 14 plays for the first-team offense in the first preseason game.

Footballguys view: Charles is the centerpiece of the Chiefs offense as he should be. He should get plenty of touches to make fantasy owners incredibly happy. It wouldn't be a shock to see him finish the year as the best RB in fantasy football. His current ADP is RB4 and he's coming off the board at 1.03 in 12 team PPR leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (foot) is out of practice again Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: From everything we've been able to gather, Charles' foot injury truly is minor and something that shouldn't change your ranking of him.
