Chiefs list 10 players as probable for Sunday at Pittsburgh


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4:41 pm ET) The Chiefs listed the following players as probable for Sunday’s game at Pittsburgh: Allen Bailey, Jamaal Charles, Anthony Fasano, Zach Fulton, Phillip Gaines, Jaye Howard, Josh Mauga, Joe Mays, Chris Owens and Sean Smith.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (illness) and linebacker Tamba Hali (knee) are the only players listed as questionable. The Chiefs did not list any players as doubtful or out.

The Chiefs are 3-point underdogs.


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles practices in full Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Ankle and knee ailments could not prevent Chiefs standout running back Jamaal Charles from putting in a full practice Thursday. He was limited in the Wednesday session.

Charles in a roll. He has 515 yards on 86 carries in the last six games for a 6.0 YPC average.


Chiefs' Jamaal Charles puts in limited work on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles was able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. 

Charles was listed with both an ankle and knee injury. He's missed one game this season, but has been able to play through bumps and bruises for the most part. Charles' status will likely be determined based on how much work he can put in on Thursday and Friday.


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.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Chiefs hope to give Jamaal Charles more touches in final four weeks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson is looking to get running back Jamaal Charles back on track with more touches heading into the final four games of the season, per the Kansas City Star.

Charles tallied 35 yards on 10 carries and added four receptions for 24 yards and one touchdown in a 29-16 defeat to the Broncos in Week 13. It was his fewest rushing yards since the second week of the season when he suffered a sprained ankle vs. Denver.

"We as a staff, and me as a coordinator, I have to allow him to touch the football as often as we can," Pederson said. "You look at the stat sheet and look at the targets and the number of touches that guys get, and then you go back and say, 'Oh, I wish I would have done this or I wish I would have done that, or more of this or less of that,' after the game, win or lose."

Charles has rushed for 807 yards and eight touchdowns this season. He'll have a tough task at hands, facing an Arizona defense that ranks sixth in the league in rushing yards allowed per game (89.3).

Charles has rushed for 807 yards and eight touchdowns this season.


Big deficit ruins Jamaal Charles


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2014) Thanks to a 12-yard touchdown reception early in the fourth quarter -- one of his four catches for 24 yards -- Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles wasn't a disaster in Week 13, but after averaging 93.6 rushing yards in his first eight games back from a sprained ankle, he had just 35 against Denver.

Of course, he also had just 10 carries. Like so many running backs who face the Broncos -- who rank second against the run, allowing 72.7 yards per game -- he fell victim to the flow of the game.

In other words, the Broncos built up a big lead early, forcing the Chiefs to rely almost exclusively on the pass in the second half. That's when quarterback Alex Smith had 16 of his 23 pass attempts and Charles had only three of his 10 carries.

It's no reason to lose faith in Charles even with the Chiefs set to face another tough run defense Week 14 at Arizona. The Cardinals are unlikely to pull away in that game with Drew Stanton under center, which should keep Charles a priority on offense. If the Falcons' Steven Jackson can run for 100 yards against the Cardinals, so can Charles.


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles totals 59 yards, scores TD vs. Broncos


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles tallied 35 yards on 10 carries and added four receptions for 24 yards and one touchdown in his team's 29-16 loss to the Broncos in Week 13.

Charles didn't have much of an opporunity to get going in the rushing game as the Chiefs fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter and failed to reduce the deficit to single digits at any point in the final three quarters. Charles managed to save his day by hauling in a 12-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, giving him seven straight games with at least one score. The 59 yards represented his lowest total since dealing with an injury in Week 2. Charles will look for a bigger chunk of offensive production in Week 14 against the Cardinals.


Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles turns in another solid game


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles turned in another solid performance against the Raiders.

Charles had a decent game on the ground, gaining 80 yards on 19 carries. He wasn't able to break any long rushes, with his longest run going for 11 yards. Charles did make up for that in the passing game, though. He caught four of his team-high seven targets for 42 yards and a score. Charles' score was his only big play of the night. He caught a pass about two yards past the line of scrimmage, and tore through the Raiders defense for a 30 yard touchdown. 

Charles will look for more Week 13 against the Broncos.
