    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Charles will serve as the primary backup running back and will see limited touches. He had some success earlier in the season, but owners should have better options to use in their starting lineup.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 7:52pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles said he would love for the coaching staff to 'take the training wheels off' of him when the Broncos face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Charles clearly wants to give his former team a little payback, but as part of a committee in Denver, he just doesn't see enough touches to warrant a starting spot.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 3:10pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (rest) was able to return to practice on a full basis Friday, Oct. 27.

    Huddle Up: Charles received the veteran's day off on Thursday, as the team preserves him for game day. He remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy formats as long as C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker are available.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 3:45pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Charles usually receives the first day of the practice week off and will be ready to play against the Kansas City Chiefs. He started off the season strong but has seen a drop in his production over the last few weeks. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options and can avoid Charles.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 8:16pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed four times for just two yards in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Chargers while adding four grabs for 20 yards.

    Huddle Up: The run game has been stifled in Denver, as opposing defenses are stacking the box and daring Trevor Siemian to beat them through the air. It isn't happening right now. Charles is only worth using in the very deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 3:18pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Charles has received only 10 carries over the last two weeks but still has 52 yards during that span. He has been successful in his limited playing time, but owners may want to consider other options that receive more touches for their starting lineup.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 5:01pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) was back at practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Charles has disappointed those who gave him a shot on their fantasy teams this year, though it's mostly not his fault due to lack of touches. In fact, his number of carries has decreased gradually since Week 1 and he's yet to record multiple receptions in a game yet. He shouldn't be started in any formats at the moment.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 6:34am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles is on tap to receive more touches, according to head coach Vance Joseph. 'That's always the plan with Jamaal as we go forward in the season,' Joseph said. 'He'll get more and more touches.'

    Huddle Up: Charles has received 38 carries and three receptions through five games, and it remains to be seen whether his workload will increase by much at his age. He's averaging 5.1 yards per carry, but Charles is just a bench stash for now.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 4:06pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Charles should return to practice later this week and will have his usual role against the Los Angeles Chargers. He has only received 10 carries over the last two games and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 5:00am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed five times for 19 yards in a Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: This may have been the best reason to keep Charles seated until the Broncos figure out the rushing attack. Granted, C.J. Anderson struggled as well, but as long as the RB committee continues Charles will get the lower end of the deal.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 2:30pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury related) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Charles has played well in his first season in orange and blue, but he can't be trusted in the fantasy realm as long as C.J. Anderson is healthy. Anderson will continue to serve as Denver's lead back. Charles is nothing more than good depth with added value in PPR scoring.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 4:51pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Charles will continue to serve as the No. 2 running back and will receive around 10 touches again this week. He has been successful in his limited role in the first three weeks of the season and can be a flex option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 4:51pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Charles will be able to play in Week 4 and should continue to see around 10 touches per game. He is coming off a solid Week 3 game with 56 rushing yards and one touchdown. Charles can be considered a flex option or even a low-end No. 2 running back in leagues.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 3:01pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed nine times for a game-high 56 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 in Buffalo and he had one catch for just one yard.

    Huddle Up: Charles picked up the slack with C.J. Anderson mostly contained. He continues to take advantage of the absence of Devontae Booker, looking like the Charles of old. He isn't quite a fantasy stud, but he can be trusted as an RB3 or flex play in most formats heading into Week 4 against the Raiders.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 3:00pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Charles has been productive as the No. 2 running back for the Broncos and has rushed for at least 40 yards in each of the first two games of the season. He probably will receive a similar workload in Week 3 and probably should only be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 3:16pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury related) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 21, one day after he was held out.

    Huddle Up: Charles is just fine and has been rested on Wednesdays due to his age. Although he's the clear backup to C.J. Anderson, the former Kansas City Chief has managed to post some modest numbers thus far, logging 86 yards on 19 rushes. However, his services should be reserved for the deepest formats.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 8:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed nine times for 46 yards and he added a catch for six yards on his only target in Week 2 against the Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Cowboys has looked good when spelling C.J. Anderson through the first two games. He appears to be back to 100 percent health, and he still looks to have a little left in the tank. However, it's uncertain if his role will change once Devontae Booker is ready to return, so tread lightly.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 3:20pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Charles should serve as the No. 2 running back again against the Dallas Cowboys. He probably will see around the same amount of touches has he did in Week 1, but owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 2:36pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (non-injury) was held out of practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Charles debuted with 10 rushes for 40 yards on Monday night against the Chargers, but he also lost a fumble. He was seeing more touches than expected with Devontae Booker (wrist). Once Booker can return it will be a crowded backfield and Charles will be fighting for crumbs.

  • Posted: 9/12/2017 3:52am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles finished with 10 carries and 40 yards Monday, Sept. 11, in a 24-21 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Not only were his yards down, Charles committed a costly turnover with a fumble that aided the Chargers in their comeback drive. Prior to the game, the coaching staff said Charles might be limited to 10 touches or less, which is the staff's way of working him into action. Charles didn't do anything wrong to jeopardize his No. 2 status, but a healthy C.J. Anderson will keep him from doing much else.

  • Posted: 9/11/2017 11:40am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles 'may be limited to 10 touches or so' in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers as the team continues to ease him in to action after playing so little in each of the previous two seasons, in the opinion of Mike Klis of 9News.

    Huddle Up: Charles went from a potential preseason release candidate to perhaps sharing backfield work with C.J. Anderson with a fine showing in the Broncos' dress rehearsal a couple of weeks ago. The former Kansas City Chief will be hard-pressed to become a fantasy asset on only 10 touches, but his role will most likely grow if he is able to come away from Monday's action without any issues. With that said, his upside will be capped as long as Anderson is healthy.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 7:16am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Charles should be the No. 2 running back for the Broncos against the Los Angeles Chargers and probably will receive limited touches during the game. Owners should be able to find better options for their lineups.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 4:55pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Charles may only be receiving a day off, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He likely will serve as the backup running back if he plays and would receive limited playing time. Owners in most leagues probably can find better options to use and can avoid Charles.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 12:05pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (rest) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: This was likely nothing more than a day off for the veteran. He should be good to go on Monday night and will see playing time behind C.J. Anderson. Don't start him right away, though. Only an injury to Anderson would give Charles real fantasy significance.

  • Posted: 8/27/2017 7:09am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles has made the team's 53-man roster, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Charles should serve as the backup to C.J. Anderson this year and warrants consideration as a late-round flier in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 8/26/2017 10:01pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles rushed four times for 27 yards and caught two passes for 15 yards in a 20-17 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: If Charles' knees can hold up, he could play his way into the backup role behind C.J. Anderson. He has some appeal as a late-round lottery ticket.

  • Posted: 8/21/2017 1:00pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will see a lot of playing time in Week 3 of the preseason, according to head coach Vance Joseph.

    Huddle Up: Charles has some catching up to do. He hasn't seen meaningful action since mid-October of last season. He'll likely be playing behind at least C.J. Anderson, De'Angelo Henderson and Devontae Booker this season, too. Charles is no more than a late-round PPR flier at this point in his career.

  • Posted: 8/15/2017 11:08am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not play Saturday, Aug. 19, against the San Francisco 49ers, according to head coach Vance Joseph. He will play in Week 3 of the preseason, however.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos are taking it easy with their new, fragile toy. They don't want more injury at the position, especially since Devontae Booker is already hurting. If Charles is healthy, he's still no more than a PPR flier.

  • Posted: 8/14/2017 4:26am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) may not play in the second exhibition game Saturday, Aug. 19, against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Ordinarily this would not be a big deal, as many of the regular players do not take part in one or more of the exhibitions. However, with Charles returning from knee issues, he needs to show Denver he is capable of some workload. Continue to monitor the situation but keep his draft status downgraded, at least RB4.

  • Posted: 7/31/2017 7:03pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will receive more work during practice Wednesday, Aug. 2, according to head coach Vance Joseph. Charles has been limited to individual work since camp began but is expected to participate in seven-on-seven drills this week and may participate in team drills next week.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos have been taking things slow with Charles so far, but he should see his work increase as camp goes on. He is expected to receive eight to 10 touches per game this season and will be part of a committee at the position. Charles probably will be a late-round pick in most drafts as a No. 4 running back.

  • Posted: 7/31/2017 5:49am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles is expected to receive eight to 10 touches per game this season if he makes the team. Charles said he has zero knee pain for now.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to believe how far he has fallen in the fantasy spectrum so quickly, but he's little more than an RB5 right now.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 7:06pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles did not practice with the rest of the team Thursday, July 27.

    Huddle Up: Charles will be eased in as he returns from another knee injury, and he will need his body to hold up and a little bit of luck to carve out a meaningful role in the offense. He is a late-round lottery ticket.

  • Posted: 7/26/2017 10:53am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles will be eased in slowly, but he has been cleared to participate fully in training camp, according to the Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala.

    Huddle Up: Charles is slated for situational work if his knees hold up, but there is very little that is for certain in Denver's backfield at the moment. C.J. Anderson figures to start, but Devantae Booker and Charles will mix in and could take over at any time during the course of the game if one of them gets 'hot.' For now, Charles should be drafted late as a RB5 with some upside.

  • Posted: 6/29/2017 5:11am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) said he has been cutting and doing everything on his surgically repaired left knee, and he finally feels normal. 'I feel like the way I am cutting that I am back to the normal me, man. It feels good to be moving around again,' said Charles, who was limited to eight games the past two seasons because of knee injuries. 'I have (known) this the whole offseason (that the knee was fine). Nobody can take nothing away from me except God when my time is up. I am still 30 years old. I still have a lot of special stuff to do.'

    Huddle Up: Charles won't be asked to do a whole lot unless something happens to C.J. Anderson, which could peg him for a third-down role. Charles is, at best, a RB4 in fantasy until further notice.

  • Posted: 6/13/2017 11:33am ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) will not participate in team drills during the Broncos' three-day minicamp. He will do some work with his helmet on, however.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos will be careful with their fragile veteran running back this offseason. Don't be surprised to see him limited in the preseason, too, after two consecutive serious knee injuries. Charles still has more value in PPR formats, but he's a high risk, medium reward player.

  • Posted: 6/5/2017 3:43pm ET

    Denver Broncos RB Jamaal Charles (knee) participated in some light drills with the running backs during organized team activities Monday, June 5.

    Huddle Up: Charles will not be the starting running back but will have a role in the offense if he is healthy. He probably will be used as a receiver out of the backfield and could also receive some carries. He probably should be considered a late-round pick in fantasy leagues but will have more value in point-per-reception leagues.
