Jamaal Charles May Not Be 100 Percent Yet For Fantasy Owners

Jamaal Charles was a non-factor in the Chiefs Week 2 loss against the Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Chiefs only gave Jamaal Charles six carries in their Week 2 matchup with the Bills. Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star believes that Charles isn't 100 percent right now after seeing him play in the first two games on 2012.

Fantasy Impact: Charles looked solid against the Falcons in Week 1, rushing for 87 yards on 16 carries. Week 2, though, was a completely different story. He only managed to find three yards on the six carries he was given, while Peyton Hillis and Shaun Draughn combined for 122 yards on 16 touches. There haven't been any reports regarding Charles recently, so if there is something wrong we won't find out until Kansas City releases its official injury report this week. Whatever the case, three yards rushing is concerning for fantasy owners.
