Jamaal Charles injury update: listed as probable, will start for fantasy owners

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs running back is in no danger of missing the team's Week 9 game against the Buffalo Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (knee) practiced on Friday and will start on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. The star running back hasn't missed a game this year and should continue his monster campaign against Buffalo's weak defense.

Fantasy Impact: Jamaal Charles has hit 100 yards from scrimmage in every single game this season. Owners should expect more of the same as he takes on the Bills' Swiss cheese defense. Charles has eight touchdowns on the year and has proven to be arguably the year's best running back in both standard and PPR formats. Two of his eight touchdowns have come through the air and he is on pace for 82 receptions on the year. The only blemish on his stats is that he has fumbled three times and lost two of them. However, owners can hardly complain since he is the centerpiece of Kansas City's run-first offense.

Charles is an elite RB1 and it goes without saying that he is a must-start fantasy play every week, especially against the Buffalo Bills. When you factor in Kansas City's highly unproductive receiving corps, Charles should be in for an eye-popping line.
