Summary

Charles put together what may have been his best all-around season in 2013, setting career highs in receptions (70), receiving yards (693) and touchdowns (19). After three out of four seasons as a fantasy RB1, Charles finished 2013 as THE RB1 with 382 PPR fantasy points. That's more fantasy points than any running back has scored since Arian Foster in 2010, and Charles sat out week 17 with a playoff spot secured. Charles actually saw his carries slightly decrease in 2013, but he saw a huge uptick in the passing game. He was targeted 104 times, 40 more than he'd ever seen before. Maybe more importantly, Charles was unleashed in the red zone. All but 5 of his 19 touchdowns came from inside the 10 yard line. In fact, he had more red zone touchdowns (15) last season than he had in career coming into 2013 (14). Charles is a rare all-purpose back that should continue to see high usage in both the running and passing game while also being featured close to the goal line. (May 1)
