Chiefs Inactives
Branden Albert T
Dwayne Bowe WR
Jamaal Charles RB
Tamba Hali OLB
Derrick Johnson ILB
Dontari Poe NT
Alex Smith QB

Fantasy Impact:

As outlined in our Who's Motivated? article this week, the Chiefs have nothing to play for today with their playoff spot locked up. As a result Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles & Dwayne Bowe are inactive. Knile Davis should see the bulk of the carries with Cyrus Gray also in the mix. Chase Daniel will start at QB. Avoid all Chiefs if possible as this is an unpredictable fantasy situation.

Jamaal Charles (foot) likely to sit out preseason
Friday, August 16, 2013, 7:52pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

A league source tells PFT that Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will not play against the 49ers in the Alex Smith Bowl on Friday night as a result of the foot injury he suffered earlier this week. As coach Andy Reid said on Pro Football Talk on NBCSN earlier this week, Charles would play if this were a regular season game but it isn’t and there’s not much sense risking further injury to a player who will do a lot of heavy lifting on offense for K.C. this season.

Third-round pick Knile Davis will get a chance to show off his skills in Charles’ absence with Shaun Draughn and Cyrus Gray also moving up a notch on the depth chart for this game and, it seems, the rest of the summer.

Fantasy Impact:

There's no point in bringing Charles back unnecessarily for a meaningless preseason games. The Chiefs know that he'll be able to do what they need him to do when the games start to count.

Knile Davis looks to be Chiefs RB2

ESPN - [Full Article]

RB Knile Davis, the Chiefs' third-round draft pick, stepped into Jamaal Charles' place with the first-team offense for the remainder of Monday's practice. Davis had already moved past veteran Shaun Draughn and second-year running back Cyrus Gray to No. 2 on the depth chart.

"He went down. I had to get in, step in and play my role," Davis said. "[Reid's] whole goal was to build a team where if one man went down the next man would step up."

Reid said that the reps that Davis got with the first-team offense were invaluable.

Fantasy Impact:

In Philly, Andy Reid always had a reliable backup to Brian Westbrook in Correll Buckhalter. When BWest would go down, Buck always stepped in and got the bulk of the carries as Reid rarely, if at all, used a committee approach at RB. If you're a Charles owner, Davis may be a guy to target late in drafts as a potential handcuff. He should be around very late, and you may even get a lot of "who?" responses...
