  Broncos | Jamaal Charles slated for more touches    Thu Oct 19, 09:34 AM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles is on tap to receive more touches, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'That's always the plan with Jamaal as we go forward in the season,' Joseph said. 'He'll get more and more touches.'

Footballguys view: This is still CJ Anderson's backfield, but it's hard not to be concerned that more Charles means less carries for Anderson and a RBBC setup that limits them both. We'll keep an eye on this, and right now it appears like though Anderson is the main back, he's not more than a RB3.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles receives day off    Wed Oct 18, 07:06 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Footballguys view: Just like every Wednesday. The Broncos have a plan for Charles to stay healthy for the full season, and part of that plan is resting on Wednesdays.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles returns to practice    Thu Oct 12, 05:30 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury related) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Unless CJ Anderson goes down, Charles isn't going to get you much. We have him as a RB5 this week so if you start him, it should be as a flex and you had better pray he vultures a touchdown.

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (rest), WR Cody Latimer (knee), QB Paxton Lynch (shoulder), NT Domata Peko (rest) and CB Aqib Talib (rest) each did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Footballguys view: Charles is only getting a day of rest here and should be good to go against the Giants on Sunday night. In PPR leagues, we like Charles as a deep flex play in Week 6.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles receives day off    Wed Sep 27, 07:51 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

Footballguys view: Not a big deal as Charles is getting Wednesday off. If you think Charles can put up numbers as a change of pace back versus a bad Raiders defense on Sunday (like Chris Thompson did in Week 3), then he makes for a sneaky flex play in Week 4.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles runs for 56 yards, TD    Sun Sep 24, 06:01 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed nine times for a game-high 56 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 in Buffalo and he had one catch for just one yard.

Footballguys view: Charles was in basically a 50-50 committee with CJ Anderson, but he won't get more than that because of his knees and Devontae Booker is due back soon. He's a limited ceiling flex play, but it's good to see flashes of his old burst.

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury related) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 21, one day after he was held out.

Footballguys view: Charles has looked good in limited action, but unless CJ Anderson gets hurt he is unlikely to have much value as more than a handcuff.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles to see no more than 10 touches?    Mon Sep 11, 02:40 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles 'may be limited to 10 touches or so' in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers as the team continues to ease him in to action after playing so little in each of the previous two seasons, in the opinion of Mike Klis of 9News.

Footballguys view: The team has a plan for Charles and that includes a somewhat limited workload. They took it easy on him during the preseason and now want to keep him fresh during the regular season. Charles will work as the change-of-pace back behind C.J. Anderson. That role gives him flex appeal in PPR leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Devontae Booker (wrist), DE Jared Crick (back), DE Zachariah Kerr (knee) and QB Paxton Lynch (shoulder) did not practice Friday, Sept. 8. RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) and CB Aqib Talib (non-injury) were able to practice in full, as did P Riley Dixon (hip), C Matt Paradis (elbow), WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) and DE Derek Wolfe (ankle). DE Adam Gotsis (shoulder) and NT Kyle Peko (foot) were limited participants.

Footballguys view: Charles returning to practice is confirmation that his missed practice earlier this week was simply veteran rest.

  Broncos | No practice for Jamaal Charles    Thu Sep 7, 07:55 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Footballguys view: Hopefully this is just veteran rest, but if the Broncos are giving Charles practice days off going into Week 1, they probably aren't going to work him very hard in games this year. He's only a low-end flex play until we see him hold up and excel in the regular season.

  Broncos | No practice for Jamaal Charles    Thu Sep 7, 03:05 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (rest) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed four times for 27 yards and caught two passes for 15 yards in a 20-17 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Charles didn't look quite like his old self, but he did enough in this game to give the team reassurance when it comes time for final cutdowns. He's only a late-round wait and see stash.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles will play plenty    Mon Aug 21, 04:00 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will see a lot of playing time in Week 3 of the preseason, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: This is it for Charles. Joseph seemed to indicate Charles would not be playing in Week 4 of the preseason. "Probably not. This is going to be Jamaal's shot to go do his thing. He knows it. He's ready." Joseph said. Charles hasn't looked like his old self in Broncos camp. This will be his chance to prove that he belongs on the 53-man roster.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles won't play Saturday    Tue Aug 15, 02:08 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not play Saturday, Aug. 19, against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Vance Joseph. He will play in Week 3 of the preseason, however.

Footballguys view: Charles is fully cleared to participate in Broncos camp but he rarely does much of anything in practice. Joseph says the decision to hold him back is on himself and that Charles wanted to play in the first preseason game against the Bears. If Charles can be a shadow of his former self, he could make the team as a reserve runner. If his knees are shot, then Charles might not make the 53-man roster.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles may be scratch against 49ers    Mon Aug 14, 07:26 AM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) may not play in the second exhibition game Saturday, Aug. 19, against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: He didn't play in the team's first game against the Bears either. Broncos head coach Vance Joseph says they have a plan for Charles, but he won't reveal what that plan is. Now, it just seems the plan for Charles is to rest him as much as possible. He's fully cleared to participate in practice, but Charles rarely receives much work in team drills. That has slowly ramped up...a little bit...since the start of training camp.

  Broncos | Denver RBs taking it easy this week    Tue Aug 8, 01:54 PM

Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson will play no more than three series, while RB Jamaal Charles will not play at all in the team's preseason opener against the Chicago Bears on Thursday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Anderson will get a drive or two against the Bears on Thursday night. No matter who is the quarterback, we expect the Broncos to surprise some with how much they want to run the ball in 2017. We all know the story with Anderson...if healthy, he's got the skill set to be a top-15 fantasy back. Having never played a full 16-game season in his pro career, fantasy owners already know a backup plan must be in place if Anderson is their RB2.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles to be more involved    Mon Jul 31, 10:03 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will receive more work during practice Wednesday, Aug. 2, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

Footballguys view: Charles has been limited to individual work since camp began but is expected to participate in seven-on-seven drills this week and may participate in team drills next week. If healthy, Charles will compete to be a change-of-pace back behind C.J. Anderson. Charles thinks he can still be 'the man' but he hasn't been the same in two seasons trying to work through knee problems.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles pegged for light work    Mon Jul 31, 08:49 AM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles is expected to receive eight to 10 touches per game this season if he makes the team. Charles said he has zero knee pain for now.

Footballguys view: Charles is fully cleared for training camp, but the Broncos are being careful. The veteran running back has a chip on his shoulder about getting released by the Chiefs. Holding him back in camp is the best idea, but he might be fuming because of it. If healthy, Charles could at least be a Danny Woodhead-like back in the Mike McCoy system.

Denver Broncos RB Juwan Thompson served as the backup to RB C.J. Anderson during training camp Thursday, July 27, with RB Devontae Booker (wrist) and RB Jamaal Charles not practicing.

Footballguys view: Sixth-rounder De'Angelo Henderson will push Thompson for a roster spot and he should get a long look in preseason games with Booker out and Charles getting the veteran treatment.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles not practicing    Thu Jul 27, 10:06 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles did not practice with the rest of the team Thursday, July 27.

Footballguys view: The team will take it slowly with Charles, but he has no limitations and will at least have a sizable role as a pass-catching back as long as he's healthy. Charles could surprise and get close to previous form, turning this into a true RBBC, but his workload will have to be managed in any event.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles cleared for full participation    Wed Jul 26, 01:53 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles will be eased in slowly, but he has been cleared to participate fully in training camp, according to the Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala.

Footballguys view: Charles is salty since the Chiefs released him. He's basically missed the last two years due to knee problems. If healthy, Charles is going to push C.J. Anderson for playing time. Anderson himself has to stay healthy and keep second-year pro Devontae Booker at bay in addition to Charles.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles cutting, doing everything    Thu Jun 29, 08:11 AM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) said he has been cutting and doing everything on his surgically repaired left knee, and he finally feels normal. '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 (known) 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.'

Footballguys view: It's good to hear he is feeling back to normal, but a 30-year old back coming off of knee issues--over the course of two years no less--is unlikely to be able to sustain a high level of play for a whole season. We think it more likely he is a change-of-pace back who gets a decent amount of touches and, as long as he is healthy, can produce consistent points. That said, he's not going to do so in a way that gives you more than flex type points. Right now his ADP is hovering at 132 overall and 47 among backs.

  Broncos | No team drills for Jamaal Charles    Tue Jun 13, 02:33 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not participate in team drills during the Broncos' three-day minicamp. He will do some work with his helmet on, however.

Footballguys view: Charles has taken some handoffs during individual drills but that's it. He still thinks he can be 'the man' and Charles seems rather salty after the Chiefs let him go. If his knees hold up, we think Charles works best in a limited role as a change-of-pace back behind starter C.J. Anderson.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles takes part in drills    Mon Jun 5, 06:43 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) participated in some light drills with the running backs during organized team activities Monday, June 5.

Footballguys view: Charles was out there for 1-on-1 drills with the Broncos for the first time this offseason. The team is easing him back into action as he returns from the knee injury that bothered him each of the last two years. Charles feels he can still be "the man" but he's likely going to be the change-of-pace back for the Broncos behind C.J. Anderson.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles ready by training camp?    Tue May 23, 04:34 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) hopes to be ready for action by training camp, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Charles will rehabilitate and get back to good health during organized team activities.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are giving Charles the time he needs to get as close to full strength as he possibly can. When healthy (perhaps in training camp), Charles will compete with C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker for touches/snaps in the backfield. Charles could work in a RBBC behind Anderson, and he could at least be a pass-catching back for the team.

  Broncos | Denver plans on using RB committee in '17    Tue May 23, 12:36 AM

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is planning on using a running-back-by-committee system in the upcoming season. 'You need two or three guys that can carry the load,' Joseph said. 'It is no longer a one-guy position. I'm excited to have Jamaal (Charles), C.J. (Anderson), (Devontae Booker), even De'Angelo (Henderson) in the mix there. It's a good group. It's going to be competitive, and that's the way it should be.'

Footballguys view: This is not news. The Broncos don't have a lead back as Anderson hasn't been able to stay healthy for a full 16 games. They'll use Charles (if healthy) as a change-of-pace back behind Anderson. Booker will be used as a spot runner and potential starter if Anderson is injured again. Anderson has the most fantasy value, and his current ADP is RB17 (4.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles not a lock for roster    Thu May 18, 09:09 PM

Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles has a 50 percent chance to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Mike Klis.

Footballguys view: Charles suffered a meniscus injury in the same right knee that had ACL surgery after a season-ending injury in 2015 and ended up having surgery on both knees after his 2016 ended. He should be ready for training camp, but how ready will that be? It feels like he's going to be behind the eight ball with CJ Anderson and Devontae Booker having plenty of time to get used to the offense. Charles hasn't really been great the last few seasons anyway and we think he's on the wrong side of his career and is likely destined for a minimal role in Denver.

  Broncos | Open competition at RB in Denver    Fri May 12, 03:14 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph told reporters Friday, May 12, there will be competition for the starting running back job in training camp, presumably between C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Devontae Booker.

Footballguys view: Anderson has to be considered the frontrunner at this time. Charles has not been himself over the last two years, and he might be best suited as a change-of-pace back. Booker did struggle as a rookie but he led the team in rushing last year, and he was the Broncos third-leading receiver in 2016. We'll see this unfold in training camp.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles confident in his knee    Tue May 2, 08:29 PM

In a conference call with Broncos reporters, newly signed running back Jamaal Charles expressed confidence in his knee. "I've been working out, I feel good. I feel confident in my knee." Charles said.

Footballguys view: Charles has missed most of the last two years due to knee problems. Charles admits that last year he just wasn't healthy and that was certainly the case as he registered a career low 3.3 YPC on only 12 carries in just three games. If healthy, Charles should work as a part-time back behind starter C.J. Anderson. Charles will be filling a Danny Woodhead-like role for the Broncos. We should see him eased into action this offseason with the plan for him to fully participate in training camp.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles' deal is one year in length and worth up to $3.75 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That makes sense. The Broncos weren't going to overcommit to the veteran back due to injury history and age.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles joining Broncos    Tue May 2, 05:26 PM

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) will sign with the Denver Broncos after agreeing to terms Tuesday, May 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Charles stays in the AFC West here. If healthy, Charles has the speed and elusiveness to score anytime he touches the ball. We anticipate he'll be working in a RBBC with C.J. Anderson. The Broncos need to monitor Charles' touches in order to keep him fresh and healthy. In a part-time role (but in a Mike McCoy offense), Charles could have at least RB4/flex fantasy value.

  Broncos | Jamaal Charles will visit Broncos    Mon May 1, 03:01 PM

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) is scheduled to visit the Denver Broncos Tuesday, May 2.

Footballguys view: Charles be close to "E" when it comes to gas left in the tank on his pro career. He hasn't been healthy in two years and may have lost the speed that made him such a dangerous pro. If added by the Broncos, Charles would be a part-time player as a change-of-pace back behind starter C.J. Anderson.

  Seahawks | Jamaal Charles leaves Seattle with no deal    Thu Mar 16, 08:25 PM

Free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) 'had a good visit' with the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, March 16, but ultimately left without signing a contract. Charles also may be visiting another team next week, though the identity of that franchise isn't known.

Footballguys view: With Eddie Lacy signed, it's hard to imagine the Seahawks are going to spend more money at the position, especially on an aging back who has been banged up. Charles should land somewhere but it will be as a backup we bet.
