Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles Over 125 Total Yards Already Against Bills

Week by week, the Kansas City Chiefs slowly continue to realize RB Jamaal Charles is their best weapon. He has 86 rushing yards and 45 receiving yards in today's first half against the Bills. That's 131 yards on only 12 touches, making him the game's leading rusher and receiver.

Charles has yet to break 100 yards this season, though he's finished with 87 or more yards four times. He's also only scored twice, having played setup man for RB Thomas Jones and others, and today's no different. QB Matt Cassel and WR Dwayne Bowe connected for the Chiefs' only touchdown.

Though Charles broke a 56-yard gain in week one, his 32-yard burst today was his longest run since. Considering the Chiefs tend to keep him below 20 touches per game, fantasy owners hoping for the rare Charles touchdown may not have too many more chances today, especially since the Chiefs should be able to beat the Bills with or without him.
