That they went with an in-house option, Spencer Ware, to replace the injured Jamaal Charles on their roster, would seem to speak well for Ware and their other backs, Charcandrick West and Knile Davis. Ware, who played for the Chiefs in training camp and the preseason, had been on their practice squad.
The Chiefs placed Charles, who tore his ACL in Sunday's loss to the Chicago Bears, on the injured-reserve list.
Most outlets say it's West who passed Davis on the depth chart as the team's RB2. Andy Reid went as far as saying West has a similar skill set to Charles while Davis is a one-cut runner. Davis has had success filling in for Charles in the past, but right now it seems like West is the back to own. However don't be surprised if Davis gets some work as well.
PIT RB Ben Tate - Week 18, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook
Ben Tate Wildcard game vs. Ravens
Ben Tate was signed by the Steelers earlier this week with LeVeon Bell likely out against the Ravens. But he will have had just three practices to prepare for this game, meaning his role will be limited. I wouldn't expect anything more than a short-yardage carry or two for Tate in this game, with rookie Josh Harris getting the majority of the carries.
