Joseph: RB Jamaal Charles to play 'a lot' Saturday night

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said last week that veteran running back Jamaal Charles would suit up for the first time in the preseason when the Broncos face the Packers on Saturday night and it sounds like the team plans to make up for the first two games by putting Charles to work.

Joseph said on Monday that Charles will play “a lot” against Green Bay in his first game action since Week Seven of last season. Charles missed the rest of the year with a knee injury and has played in just eight games over the last two seasons, leaving him with a need to show the Broncos that there’s still something left in the tank.

Related players: C.J. Anderson, Devontae Booker, DeAngelo Henderson

Fantasy Impact:

Charles is looking to get back on the radar it seems. The story said Anderson is the number-one back and Booker is expected back for the start of the regular season. Meanwhile, rookie Henderson has looked good.

Scouting Report

Week 7 at Los Angeles Chargers

Once the Broncos fell behind the Giants last Sunday night, the ground game was nearly disbanded. In the loss, C.J. Anderson was held to only 17 rushing yards on 9 attempts, by far his worst outing of the season. His 9 carries were the second-fewest to the 8 he had in Buffalo Week 3. In the opening week of the season, Anderson ran for 81 yards versus the Chargers and should have a bounce back performance on Sunday. Go ahead and keep him in your lineup.
