Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles was involved in the ground game and the passing attack on Friday with three catches for 27 yards, while adding five rushes for 13 yards and one score in a loss to the Saints on Friday.
Now that Andy Reid is around, Charles has drawn a lot of attention. He's getting comparisons to LeSean McCoy and Brian Westbrook, both of which has been monsters in the past thanks to their added value in the passing game. Charles hasn't been a slouch in catching the ball with his 35 catches last year and 152 receptions in his 65 career games.
Fantasy impact: It's all systems go on Charles this year -- especially in PPR leagues. His carries may take a hit with the new Reid system, but the Kansas City Star reported earlier this week that JC could double his 35 catches from last year. This is obviously music to PPR owners' ears and he ranks number three in our PPR running back rankings.
