Charles was playing at an elite RB1 pace prior to tearing his ACL in Week 5. Our injury expert, Russell Manalastas, predicts that Charles will be limited in camp and good to go for Week 1, and that his recovery is an opportunity to get him at a discount. The Chiefs found solid contributors in Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware (recommended handcuff and attrition play), so Andy Reid could elect to reduce his workload in an effort to keep him healthy. So far, it looks like Charles is on track to play in Week 1.
