2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Jun-28-2014 by Jeb Gorham
FANTASY ROYALTY: Charles is the ultimate fantasy stud. His 1,287 rushing yards and 12 rushing TDs produced his best fantasy season to date. On the receiving side, Charles doubled his 2012 receiving targets and gained nearly 700 yards through the air, along with seven touchdowns. Charles should see continued chemistry with Alex Smith and continue to be the focal point of this offense's game-plan. He has been the Chiefs' MVP four of the last five seasons. Charles is a no-brainer in fantasy circles and should be off the board with either the first or second pick in redraft.
Editor's note: Expecting Charles to replicate his 2013 numbers isn't wise. During his three best seasons as the Chiefs' primary back (2009-10, 2012), he scored 22 total TDs. Last season, he scored 19 total TDs. A big year could still be on the way; however, a regression toward the mean is a more logical outlook. The wild card is head coach Andy Reid. His presence obviously did wonders for Charles' production. It just wouldn't make much sense to expect him to do it all over again after smashing most of his personal bests by a wide margin. Also, losses to the offensive line are never easy to work through and the Chiefs have had their share of offensive line issues this off-season losing three key starters to free agency.
