by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jamaal Charles carries regular-season TD streak into Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles got off to a fast start last season, totaling 100 yards (77 rushing) and one touchdown in a 28-2 win Week 1 at Jacksonville. It helped propel him to a banner season in which he finished as the highest-scoring running back in Fantasy with 293 points.

The Week 1 opponent for the Chiefs in 2014 will be the Titans. Charles rushed for 108 yards and one touchdown, while adding five catches for 37 yards in a win at Tennessee last season. Charles has at least one touchdown in his last five regular season games games and has a total of 11 touchdowns (six rushing) in that span.

Running backs had a pretty good success against the Titans in 2014. They averaged 96.9 rushing yards, 56.3 receiving yards and 21 Fantasy points per week, which was the fourth-highest average. Running backs also totaled 20 touchdowns (19 rushing).
