Jamaal Charles limited production, injury in Week 9 hurts fantasy value

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Jamaal Charles couldn't get much going on the ground in Week 9. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Chiefs only gave Jamaal Charles 15 total touches in Week 9 on Thursday night. While it was an improvement from last week's disappointing performance, Charles still rushed for just 39 yards to go with 27 yards receiving against the Chargers.

After a helmet-to-helmet hit late in the game with Donald Butler, Charles stayed down for a couple of minutes. He jogged off to the sidelines, but did not return after it was reported he had suffered a neck injury.

Fantasy Impact: Charles was given the standard concussion test on the sideline, so be sure to check on his status going forward for any developments with his injury. He still isn't touching the ball enough and, with the lack of a passing game, it's hard for Charles to burst free with defense honing in on him.

Kansas City has another prime-time game in Week 10, this time facing Pittsburgh's improving defense. Charles will face another tough test on Monday night.
