Thoughts on Jamal Charles? WHIR

Postby angels7777 » Sun Aug 12, 2012 10:23 am

.5 PPR Redraft 10 teams

Is he worth a 2nd round pick? Is he a good value this year since he was looked at as a 1st rounder before last year's injury? Does the presence of Hillis scare you or lower his value? Do you trust him to stay healthy? Is he completely health? Is he a better selection that AP? Would you take him around pick #16 with Forte off the board but Murray still there? Please discuss.

I would gladly take charles in the 2nd round. I think the presence of Hillis will help. It will keep charles fresh.

Yes they have. He's worth 2nd round consideration.

Love this^
Agree on all these questions. If he stays healthy he will be a stud. In Charles' breakout year, I believe that Thomas Jones actually had more carries than him. Charles has never been a power back, but the boy is quicker than lightning. I like him best of any RB coming off a serious injury. His was week 2 or 3, AP's was much later. I don't get why people are thinking AP will be back healthy and Charles wouldn't be

In his best year on record, T Jones was there and it didn't matter. As for him versus Murray, I'd have to go Murray. If you could somehow get both Charles and Hillis..... BANG

Need your help....

I am in the same dilemma. At pick 19 in the 2nd round (PPR) , I am considering Charles, Mathews, Sproles, S-Jax, Murray. How would you rank them in order? Or do you take Julio Jones if hes there?
12-team PPR

QB: Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick
RB: Jamaal Charles, Darren Sproles, Knowshon Moreno, Montee Ball
WR: Jordy Nelson, Larry Fitzgerald, Vincent Jackson, Cecil Shorts, Justin Blackmon

Charles, Matthews, and Murray definitely over the others. Jax, Sproles, and even JJ may be available in the Round 3 even. I though am not as high on Murray or an injured Matthews though as most.
