Chiefs want to run the ball ... a lot

Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

One of the biggest priorities for Kansas City at camp is to get RB Jamaal Charles back to where he was before last season’s knee injury.

Another is to figure out how to maximize the talents of both Charles and RB Peyton Hillis, who had his best pro season playing for new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll two seasons ago, when Daboll was with the Browns.

In the Chiefs’ perfect world, they’ll get the ball to Charles and Hillis a total of 500 times.

Fantasy Impact: 

This seems like pretty good news for potential Charles owners. We rank him 10th in standard leagues and 12th in PPR. His ADP is early third round, so if you pick at the bottom of the order, Charles should be there for you. While there is always some risk with recovery, Charles has a chance to finish as a top RB. He may lose some TDs in close to Hillis, but we've seen Charles score from anywhere on the field, too.
