Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles wants to play another six years


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Jamaal Charles is 29 but hasn't showed any signs of slowing down. 

In his battle to prove that you can hit the 30-year mark in age and still be a capable running back in the NFL, Charles said it's his goal to continue playing this game for an additional half-decade.

“I want to play another six years so, my form is to keep on taking my diet," Charles said, via the Chiefs' official team site. "I’m seeing guys at 37 or 38 still playing football in the trenches and that’s somewhere where you don’t want to play. So I just want to change the game with the running backs. I want this to last longer and then when I retire, I’ll be happy with where I end my career at.”

Charles ran for 1,033 yards and nine touchdowns while going for 291 receiving yards and five touchdowns. 


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles says he wants to play six more seasons


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is gearing up for his eight season in the NFL and he knows the pessimistic perception on the career length for running backs, reports the team's official website.

"The game has changed," Charles said. "They've got all kinds of technology now, all kinds of medicine people have come up with to stay healthy. At the end of the day, an ACL you couldn't play [with], it was the end of a career."

Charles hopes by maintaining his body, avoiding big hits and not trying to run over people, the subtle changes will provide longevity to his career.

"I want to play another six years so, my form is to keep on taking my diet," he said. "I'm seeing guys at 37 or 38 still playing football in the trenches and that's somewhere where you don't want to play. So I just want to change the game with the running backs. I want this to last longer and then when I retire, I'll be happy with where I end my career at."


Chiefs RB Charles seeking to stay healthy, play six more years


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Chiefs standout running back Jamaal Charles told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that he plans to retire at the age of 35 after six more seasons on the field.

Charles, who has played seven years in the NFL, will likely need to avoid the injuries he sustained in 2014 to reach that goal. Though he exceeded 1,000 yards rushing again and averaged an impressive 5.0 YPC, he admitted that a variety of ailments made it difficult on him. But he believes his mindset during games will keep him healthy.

"I'm definitely not going to take as many big hits as I did last year," he said. "I took the biggest hits last year. Normally, I try to get out of bounds or get down. I'm never g9ing to try to take anybody on, be a tough guy.

"I'm going to think about my career, how I can help my team win. I'm not going to try to go out there and prove a point."


Chiefs RB Charles admits to feeling frustrated in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Superstar running back Jamaal Charles didn't perform to his lofty standards for the Chiefs in 2014, but he feels that the blame can be placed squarely on injuries.

So when Charles told ESPN that his "body has healed up" and that he "feels good," it could be bad news for NFL defenses in 2015.

"I was frustrated more last season as I've ever been because of all those injuries," Charles said. "I was frustrated because I didn't feel my body was right the whole season. But I battled through that time. That's all I could do. I felt like I was in a fight and I had to respond. I had 12 weeks to finish the season and if felt to me like I had 12 rounds to go."

Charles suffered through several physical problems last year, including issues with his ankle, foot, back, shoulder, knee and hamstring. Yet despite a lack of practice time and being listed on the injury report for nine of 16 games, he still averaged 5.0 YPC, exceeded 1,000 yards rushing for the fifth time in six seasons and scored nine touchdowns.

Knile Davis benefits from Jamaal Charles' timing


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) Rest assured, Jamaal Charles owners, there's no running back controversy in Kansas City.

The box score for Week 15 against Oakland may suggest otherwise. Charles led the Chiefs with 12 carries for 52 yards, sure, but backup Knile Davis scored both the touchdowns out of the backfield, plunging in from 3 yards out midway through the third quarter and then scoring on a 70-yard catch-and-run a couple drives later.

But it was all a matter of timing. Davis' touchdown run came after Charles took a hard hit the play before and had to be tested for a concussion. Charles returned for the team's next drive, but the Chiefs went up three scores then, putting the game out of reach. It only made sense to bring in the backup running back, who then broke a long one when a defender stumbled.

Davis wasn't even effective with his nine carries, five of which came in the fourth quarter. He gained a total of 11 yards. His value to Fantasy owners remains as a handcuff to Charles. You wouldn't want to start him on his own merits Week 16 at Pittsburgh.


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles gains 53 yards on 13 touches Week 15


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles racked up a team-high 52 rushing yards on 12 carries and added a one-yard reception in his team's 31-13 win over the Raiders in Week 15.

Charles took a big hit on a goal-to-go carry in the third quarter and was replaced by Knile Davis, who scored on the next play to convert on the team's only trip inside 10 yards of the goal line during the game. Charles ended up being fine, coming right back in to take the ball on the team's next offensive play.

Charles is up to 950 rushing yards on 184 carries with nine touchdowns. If he can manage 50 rushing yards in Week 16 against the Steelers, he'll lock up his third straight season with at least 1,000 rushing yards.
