Jamaal Charles disappears from fantasy football in Week 8

Peter Aiken

Jamaal Charles finished with 10 total yards against the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Chiefs looked like they forgot about Jamaal Charles in Week 8, as their No. 1 running back failed to make any impact against the Raiders. Charles finished with five carries for four yards and three receptions for six yards.

Head coach Romeo Crennel didn't seem to have an answer as to why Charles didn't see many touches after the game. Whatever the case, it was a disappointing display.

Fantasy Impact: It's hard to believe a team can only give five carries to its best player. Charles couldn't get anything going with the limited action he saw, but how much of a factor can you expect someone to be on five carries?

Kansas City faces San Diego next week, so hopefully Charles can get back on track. His last game against the Chargers produced 88 rushing yards and a touchdown.
