Jamaal Charles is NFL's early fantasy hero for Week 5

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Jamaal Charles has 125 yard rushing on 20 carries against the Ravens ... in the first half. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jamaal Charles is off to a very hot start Sunday for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Baltimore Ravens. Through the first 30 minutes, he has already carried the ball 20 times for 125 yards. He also has one reception for five yards, putting him on pace for 260 total yards of offense against what is thought to be a stout Ravens defense.

Fantasy Impact: And if you own Charles in your fantasy league, you have to be smiling right now. Charles is playing at a higher level than any running back in the league right now, and he could be had in the late second round or early third round in a lot of fantasy drafts before the season. As long as he stays healthy, Charles is a weekly must-start in all fantasy formats.
