Jamaal Charles to be featured in passing game

Fox Sports Kansas City - [Full Article]

"You've seen [RB Jamaal Charles] sprint out of the single receiver, and he'll come out of the backfield," Chiefs OC Doug Pederson continued. "He's a guy that needs to move around, and (one) you can put in different positions, motion out the back, shift him from the backfield. He catches the ball so well that you have to take advantage of that offensively."

Charles ranked 22nd among NFL tailbacks last season in terms of total targets (48) and was 13th in 2010 (61). Meanwhile, in Andy Reid's West Coast scheme, LeSean McCoy wound up eighth in targets in 2012 (67) and was first in 2010 (97).

"I think you can use (Charles) more in the passing game," Pederson said.

Fantasy Impact: 

McCoy averaged 3.8 receptions in 27 games over the last two seasons. That projects to 61 catches over a full season. We currently have Charles projected to catch 57 passes for 465 yards. He is our #3 RB in PPR formats.
