Via Can Andy Reid Help the Chiefs Offense?.
Want a reason to be excited for Jamaal Charles? Over the last seven years, there have been six occasions where an Andy Reid-coached running back ran the ball 200 or more times. In all six occurrences, that running back – either Brian Westbrook or LeSean McCoy – caught at least 48 passes. And we’ve seen a 77-, 78- and 90-reception year, too. Not only could Charles be in for a big year through the air in Kansas City, but he’s been a runner who’s been able to do a lot with a little. Considering the offense will more than likely open up the running game, Charles has a legitimate shot to be a league leader in average yards per carry this season. He’s not just advantageous to look at in the first round of PPR leagues. He’s worthwhile in all leagues.Fantasy owners all cringed when Jamaal Charles went down late 2011, but those who drafted him last year were rewarded with outstanding numbers (1509 rushing yards and 236 receiving yards).
