Summary

Dual threat extraordinaire Jamaal Charles is an elite RB1 with the potential to be the number one RB in fantasy. Charles is the engine that runs the Chiefs offense and it will remain that way as long as he stays healthy. He has the potential to break a big play at any moment, strong pass catching ability and an all-time great YPC rate. Despite battling his share of ailments last year, Charles finished last season as the number 7 RB. Charles has acknowledged that the minor injuries may have held him back last year, a possible red flag on wear and tear - but if he can avoid them this year, he offers an incredibly high ceiling. If the passing attack and OL improve as expected, he will have no trouble exceeding 2014 totals and potentially have the finest season of his career at age 28. Charles is a guaranteed first round pick and deserves serious consideration as the first player taken overall. (May 16)

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles used in passing game (Sat Aug 1, 08:27 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles was emphasized in the screen game during practice Saturday, Aug. 1, and in one drill, nine straight passes were thrown to running backs.

Our View: The Chiefs didn't throw a touchdown to a wide receiver at all last year. The arrival of Jeremy Maclin should change that, but this team is still going to target Charles plenty as a receiver out of the backfield.
