When asked Wednesday why Knile Davis didn’t receive a similar workload to last year with Jamaal Charles out of the mix, Chiefs coach Andy Reid acknowledged that while Davis did have three productive games with Charles out a year ago, Charcandrick West is a better fit for what the offense is currently doing.
“The things that we’ve been doing, we feel pretty good with what Charcandrick (West) is doing and Knile working in on some other things,” Reid said. “So we’re not down on Knile by any means. That’s not where we’re at with it. Just with some of the things we’re doing right now, Charcandrick kind of fits that.”
The Charcandrick Era did not get off to a very good start -- he was benched late after fumbling -- but it sounds as if the Chiefs will continue to use him as the lead back.

Week 5 vs. Detroit
After scoring touchdowns in the first three games of the season, Jamaal Charles was held out of the end zone in Week 4. However, Charles still generated 145 yards, once again providing the dependability fantasy owners have counted on for years.
The Chiefs are done with a daunting stretch that saw them play Denver, Green Bay, and Cincinnati. The Bears, who may come into Kansas City flat after winning their first game of the season, are allowing 119.3 rushing yards per game. They have only allowed two rushing touchdowns, but that is partly because opposing passing games have burned the Bears with big plays and have not been lining up as much near the goal line. No matter what slant the statistics provide, Chicago’s defense is not a daunting obstacle and Charles is one of the best backfield plays this week.
