Week 6 at Minnesota
On those rare occasions when Jamaal Charles was unavailable over the past two seasons, Knile Davis had shown to be a capable replacement. As a result, many owners selected Davis earlier this year, thinking they would have an immediate starter if something happened to Charles.
Unfortunately, Charles was lost for the season last Sunday. But even before that happened, the back who was spelling Jamaal was Charcandrick West, not Davis. It was somewhat of a surprising development given how Knile had played in the past. Kansas City head coach Andy Reid indicated both runners would have a role in replacing Charles, but West seems to be in the best position of the two at the moment. Davis needs to be on rosters across the board in the event West struggles, but for now, he is merely a fantasy reserve, even against a below-average Minnesota run defense.
