Four Downs: Jamaal Charles is baaaaack
Updated: September 24, 2012, 12:17 AM ETBy Eric Karabell
The ol' saying goes that fantasy football owners shouldn't sit their studs, but it was hard to tell a week ago who Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles really was. After all, it's one thing to struggle, as Charles did in gaining three yards on six attempts in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills. It's quite another to do so at least in some part due to left knee pain, especially when the player had ACL surgery on that knee about one calendar year prior. My concern on Charles, which led to more of a flex ranking than starter trust for me in Week 3 (the staff ranked him 21st at running back), was based on health and the threat of shared touches.
