Peyton Hillis had nice things to say about Jamaal Charles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Hillis said Jamaal Charles looks "great" and he's "100 percent" on a Kansas City radio station this weekend.

Fantasy Impact: Charles has looked every bit as good as he did last year when some people were saying they'd be willing to invest the top pick on the Texas product. Unlike Rashard Mendenhall and Adrian Peterson, Charles had almost an entire year to rehab his torn ACL and it certainly looks like that injury is behind him. The Chiefs will be splitting carries between Hills and Charles and they're expecting to give them a combined 500 carries. For what it's worth, the Broncos and Texans each ran the ball 546 times last year, so it's not too lofty of an expectation. Charles has nice value in the early-second or late-first round while Hillis should be off the board in the middle rounds.
