Jamaal Charles dominates for Chiefs, fantasy owners

Peter Aiken

The Chiefs running back was the team's best offensive player Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had a big day Sunday in the team's 26-17 win over the Tennessee Titans. He ran the ball 22 times for 108 yards and a touchdown, adding five receptions for 37 yards.

Charles' touchdown put the Chiefs ahead for good in the fourth quarter, scoring on a one-yard run with 6:23 left in the game to make the score 20-17.

Fantasy impact: The game was Charles' first of the season in which he topped 100 rushing yards - though, between rushing and receiving, he's had at least 100 all-purpose yards in all five Chiefs' games this season. He has alternated games with rushing and receiving touchdowns, meaning he has five touchdowns all season, one in each game.

Charles was in the top tier of running backs in fantasy drafts this year, but was solidly in the back half of the first round. With his performance, though, he has to be considered one of the safest fantasy running backs around, and could be considered a candidate for the top one, two, or three going forward.
