2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

2010 Stats
 1,467 rush yds.
5 rush TDs
45 rec. / 468 yds.
3 rec. TDs
2011 Projected
 1,375 rush yds.
9 rush TDs
50 rec. / 510 yds.
2 rec. TDs

After splitting carries early in the season with Thomas Jones, Charles became the feature back in Kansas City late in 2010. The result was a huge success with Charles rushing for 619 yards and five touchdowns the final six games of the season. Charles solidified his spot as the Chiefs starting running back in 2011 and should get more carries. Charles rushed for 1,467 yards in 2010 on just 230 carries, that's an average of 6.4 yards per carry. If he adds 100 more carries, while keeping that same average, he'll rush for over 2,000 yards next season. Charles is also very good in the passing game, catching 45 passes in 2010 for 468 yards and three touchdowns. He's also durable, missing just one game in his three-year career.
