From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Sep 30): What ankle injury? Charles soaked up the touchdowns the Chiefs offense has been creating for running backs in his return, and everything seems hunky dory for the #1 running back from 2013. San Francisco is not an easy matchup next week, but Charles owners have to be thrilled to have a full speed stud back in their lineups again.

General News (Wed Oct 1): partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

Week 5: at San Francisco 49ers

Detailed matchup analysis coming soon.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs DEN (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Charles left the game at the 9:29 mark with a high ankle sprain. His leg bent under him and he hobbled off on his own power. No timetable has been given for his return.

2014 Week 4 vs NE (18 / 92 / 1 rush, 3 / 3 / 16 / 2 rec)

Charles was outstanding in limited work despite a slow start and missing a drive because of dehydration. He showed no effects of his ankle sprain and looked as shifty and powerful as ever. His first touchdown illustrated that power. After a well-timed cutback he powered through 2 tacklers for the last half yard of his two yard touchdown. Charles next touchdown came on his next touch, but this time he lined up as a wide receiver. The Chiefs set up a screen to Charles and he dove through a wall of blockers for a five yard touchdown. Charles showed his confidence in his ankle on an 8 yard zone run on his next carry. The Chiefs ran the ball with Charles three straight times to start the second half, and he picked up 14 yards behind outstanding blocking. After a Patriots turnover gave the Chiefs a short field, Charles capitalized with a third touchdown. He badly beat Mayo out of the backfield, and had an easy catch and run into the end zone. Charles yardage totals were hampered by the near 50/50 split with Knile Davis, but his usage in the red zone more than made up for that.

Chiefs | Jamaal Charles probable (Sat Sep 27, 05:10 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 4. He was limited in practice again Saturday, Sept. 27.

Our View: If Charles is playing he has to be in your lineup. The problem is, you have a Monday night game, leaving you few options (if you don't have Knile Davis) if he is deactivated. If Charles is out, Davis becomes an RB1/RB2 play but if Charles plays, he's too risky to play. Charles should put up top ten fantasy RB numbers - assuming they use him properly.
