08/27/2014 17:10 2014 Draft Prep: 10-team draft
Enough with running mock drafts with just our writers. Let's invite the masses! Our final 10-team draft includes owners from all walks of life ... along with Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg.
Jamaal Charles will try to repeat as the No. 1 Fantasy running back this season after he was a beast in 2013. Charles had 259 carries for 1,289 yards and 12 touchdowns and 70 catches for 693 yards and seven touchdowns. The rushing touchdowns, catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns were all career highs, and he excelled in his first year playing for coach Andy Reid. Charles will take a hit this season with Knile Davis expected to get more work, and Kansas City's offensive line will look different in 2014. But Charles is too good with too much potential to pass up as the No. 1 overall pick in all leagues. The last three times Charles played a full season, which was 2010, 2012 and 2013 (he suffered a torn ACL in 2011), he had at least 1,700 total yards and six total touchdowns. We're expecting Charles to have another big year, and make sure when you draft him No. 1 overall you handcuff him with Davis with a late-round pick.
