Fantasy Savior: Jamaal Charles


Via Can Andy Reid Help the Chiefs Offense?.

Want a reason to be excited for Jamaal Charles? Over the last seven years, there have been six occasions where an Andy Reid-coached running back ran the ball 200 or more times. In all six occurrences, that running back – either Brian Westbrook or LeSean McCoy – caught at least 48 passes. And we’ve seen a 77-, 78- and 90-reception year, too.

Not only could Charles be in for a big year through the air in Kansas City, but he’s been a runner who’s been able to do a lot with a little. Considering the offense will more than likely open up the running game, Charles has a legitimate shot to be a league leader in average yards per carry this season. He’s not just advantageous to look at in the first round of PPR leagues. He’s worthwhile in all leagues.

Fantasy owners all cringed when Jamaal Charles went down late 2011, but those who drafted him last year were rewarded with outstanding numbers (1509 rushing yards and 236 receiving yards). And there is a LOT more to look forward to as seen in J.J. Zachariason’s piece on Andy Reid’s offense for the Chiefs. We here at RotoViz aren’t sleeping on Jamaal Charles either. Check out this great piece by Jacob Myers on Andy Reid and Jamaal Charles. Myers agrees with Zachariason in that he believes Charles will be one of the most feared options in PPR leagues. Myers even proves that the addition of Alex Smith won’t hinder Charles’ production. Even more, Shawn Siegele goes out of his way in a Marshawn Lynch piece to highlight Charles as a running back in comparison to Lynch and Adrian Peterson. With the addition of Andy Reid, Jamaal Charles has the potential to be one of, if not the best running back in all leagues this year.
