RB Jamaal Charles NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Jamaal Charles turned into a fantasy stud late in the season after the team parted ways with Larry Johnson. In ten starts last year, Charles posted over 1,100 yards rushing and a 5.9 yard per carry average.
Charles also produced eight total touchdowns and 40 receptions in the passing game. These break out numbers carried fantasy owners to championships and have made Charles a hot name coming into the 2010 season.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Unfortunately for Charles, the Chiefs went out and acquired Thomas Jones in the offseason. Jones has scored at least fourteen touchdowns in each of the past two seasons, and he is a serious threat to Charles for red zone touches.
Beyond that, it is very likely that Charles will start out the season in a running back by committee (RBBC) with Jones as he only had 190 carries last season. Given the fact that Charles is 23 years old, it only makes sense for the Chiefs to slowly work him into being a true feature back.
Don’t be surprised if the Chiefs allow Charles to be the main runner as we get into the second half of the season but in the first half they should have him on a pitch count.
Other than that, Charles has amazing skills and his patience to wait for holes to break open before he hits the hole is a very encouraging sign for success. The fact that the Chiefs have the easiest schedule against the run won’t hurt Charles’s chances for success as well.
