Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 6 vs NYG (5 / 19 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Charles was the second back in the game after Anderson took all the snaps on the first 2 drives, but he was just as much of a non-factor as Anderson. Charles saw around 20 snaps, logging just 5 carries. Siemian short-hopped his first attempt to toss the ball to Charles. Charles gathered his second target for a minimal gain. Charles' third target was a short dumpoff out of the backfield that was swatted away by a linebacker.
2017 Week 4 vs OAK (5 / 33 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Charles entered the game in the 1st quarter after Anderson and Booker. He ripped a nice run up the middle on his first carry. Charles was featured in the two minute offense at the end of the 1st half, logging a few carries and catching a swing pass for a gain of 14. The Broncos didn't call Charles' number much in the 2nd half, as CJ Anderson took over in the run game. Charles finished the day with 5 carries for 33 yards and 14 yards on his lone target.
2017 Week 3 vs BUF (9 / 56 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Charles claimed a bigger share of the Broncos backfield split in week 3. He entered the game as the feature back on Denver's 2nd offensive drive of the game, taking a toss around the right side for a 1st down on 3rd and 1. He scored a 12 yard touchdown in the 2nd quarter, taking a handoff straight up the middle and following some great blocking into the end zone. Charles' longest run of the day was a 19 yard carry straight up the middle in the 3rd quarter. Charles may have a reputation as a speed back, but he has some serious shake when running in between the tackles as well. Charles' only target in the passing game was a halfback screen that was blown up in the backfield. Charles led the team in carries(9) and yards(56).
2017 Week 2 vs DAL (9 / 46 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Charles provided occasional rest for CJ Anderson, who stole the show on offense in week 2. Charles caught a quick flare route out of the backfield for a short gain of 6 in the 2nd quarter, and immediately followed it up with his best run of the day, a 14 yard gain off right tackle. He had a nifty 10 yard run up the middle in the 3rd quarter where he showed some serious wiggle in between the tackles. J.C. finished the day with an impressive 5.1 ypc on his 9 carries, along with the one target and reception.
2017 Week 1 vs LAC (10 / 40 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The Broncos used Charles as the only change of pace to lead back CJ Anderson, with Anderson garnering twice the carries(20 to 10). Charles did post a nearly identical YPC. J.C. had a couple of impressive carries midway through the 3rd quarter, and a goal line carry(his only of the night)that was blown up by an unblocked defender. Charles could not secure his only pass target of the night. He looked good as a receiver in preseason and should contribute more in the passing game in the future.

Our 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.
