2016 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: TROUBLING SIGNS FOR JAMAAL CHARLES OWNERS

The report came late in the day on Tuesday but it was ominous nonetheless.  The report in question centered on the fact that it has been Spencer s Ware and not Jamaal Charles who has taken the first team reps for most of the summer.  And it got worse when later in the same report, it was suggested that Charles was not all the way back from his second ACL tear in his knee which ended his 2015 early.  All of this now points to a possible running back committee to begin the season or even worse for Charles owners, that the very capable Ware will be the primary back in Week 1.  As someone who owns Charles despite all the risks I talked about this summer, this is not good news.  I was able to nab Charles in the third round of the Experts League draft which was later than his average second round position which is the only reason why I went with him despite my misgivings.  Now we have this very troubling news which has suddenly made Ware a big pickup with the new season looming.  So what do we do now as a Charles owner and will Ware end up being the top back to own on the Chiefs this season?  Ultimately I still think Charles will be the primary back once he is 100 percent, even if that timeline starts in Week 2 or 3.  Ware could very well be the goal-line back and take a few more carries from Charles but in PPR formats the latter should still be a low-end RB 1.  After all don't forget that Charles has never not averaged more than 5.0 yards per carry in any of his NFL seasons so he will get his share of work.  Still overall this is not what you want to be dealing with as the season dawns.  So are you a Charles owner?  What are your thoughts on this?  Post below.  Also follow us on Twitter
