Jamaal Charles listed as probable, should be a must-start in fantasy football

Jamaal Charles is listed as probable on the Kansas City Chiefs' injury report. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is listed as probable for the team's Week 6 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Charles is dealing with a foot injury that kept him out of practice on Wednesday and had him limited on Thursday and Friday.

The injury, which has been reported as severe blisters, was never expected to keep Charles out for Sunday's game. But when you have a player of his caliber and his extensive injury history missing practice, it's always a big deal. Charles has already missed time this season and the Chiefs struggled without him.

That said, the Chiefs remain undefeated, though the matchup against Tennessee will be a tough one. Having Charles going full steam will be a big plus for them, and he should definitely be ready to carry a full load.

Fantasy Impact: Seeing Charles' name on the injury report is expected for fantasy owners at this point. It's always disturbing, however because Charles is the top running back for many fantasy teams these days. That said, he's a must-start this week barring any setback which isn't expected. There's no reason to sit him at this point, as Kansas City also doesn't have anyone to challenge him for his spot.
