Why Jamaal Should Win Fantasy Player of the Year

If there was an NFL player not named Peyton Manning that fantasy owners longed for this season, it was Charles. Playing under new head coach Andy Reid, Charles asserted himself as one of the league’s dual-threat backs. He led the Chiefs in both rushing and receiving and was one of the most consistent fantasy producers around. But what really made Charles valuable is that he turned it up when it counted most. Between Weeks 12 and 16, the stud rusher averaged 29.08 fantasy points per game – highlighted by his 51.50-point outburst against the Oakland Raiders in Week 15. You want your fantasy studs to play their best ball late in the season. No one may have done that better than Jamaal Charles. And in the time it took you to read this, he just scored again.

Marshall's Take
Jamaal Charles

Jamaal Charles’ lightning quick speed and ability to catch the ball out of the backfield have made him an almost unstoppable weapon in Andy Reid’s West Coast Offense. His 1,200+ yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground are impressive in their own right, but when you also factor in Charles’ 70 catches, 690+ yards and 7 touchdowns through the air; it’s easy to see why he is quickly becoming the new prototype for an elite fantasy running back.
