Summary

The Jamaal Charles era is over in Kansas City. Last year, Ware took over the lead role in an offense that got significant contributions from Tyreek Hill and Charcandrick West. However, Ware was clearly the guy. Entering his fourth season, Ware delivered 1369 yards from scrimmage on his way to fantasy RB2 production. Andy Reid's description of Ware in April fits what has been said about the Chiefs' runner since his career at LSU: "I'm a big Spencer Ware fan. [He's] dirty tough. He's going to give you an honest down every snap. HE's not real fancy--that's not his deal, but he can block, he can catch, and he can run." Only Tevin Coleman (12.6) and Ezekiel Elliott (12.5) averaged more yards after the catch per reception than Ware (11.9) among running backs with at least catches. Combined with Ware's skill between the tackles as a goal line back and in-game closer, expect a significant contribution from him in 2017. While Kareem Hunt does good work between the tackles, Chiefs analyst Adam Teicher believes Ware is the favorite to retain the starting job in 2017. (August 14)
