Jamaal Charles: He's here, there and everywhere in Chiefs' new offense
SEAN KEELER |
Published: Friday, May 31, 2013, 1:49pm


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — You'd need a GPS to find Jamaal Charles in all these new formations, even on a good day.

One series, he's at his standard spot at tailback. The next, he's the deep back in the pistol. The next, he's out wide, lounging around in Dwayne Bowe's real estate.

Over the past month, the Kansas City Chiefs' all-universe tailback has been tried out in more positions than a socket wrench. It's just another wrinkle in Andy Reid's makeover-slash-master plan. Or not. In May, it's kind of hard to tell.

"Obviously, we know what he did last year — Pro Bowl running back, had over 1,500 yards, excellent, excellent season," new offensive coordinator Doug Pederson told reporters Thursday following the penultimate practice of this week's round of organized team activities. "He's a guy that we can put in multiple spots. He's a sharp kid. He's worked extremely hard this offseason.

"Really, I think the sky is the limit with him with what we're trying to do. Just put him in different spots and using his ability to, again, create matchups defensively."

THis here. Throw in PPR, and I'm thinking career year for Charles. Knowing how Reid uses his RBs like I do, this guy is gonna be good. Gonna see an uptick in catches, probably a bit of a down in his rushing attempts, but rest assured, he'll get the ball.

Guy is a nightmare in space. Probably the best back that Reid has had to work with.

I want to be all over this guy this year. Alex Smith is definitely going to help keep the defense honest, at least somewhat. After AP and Foster, this guy is my #3.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Last year the worry was Hillis poaching from him but with no Hillis (FA) and only Knile Davis behind him I think it raises his stock. I think his rush yards decrease but his receiving yards will eclipse that. I think he gets more TD's and a few more longer ones with the extra catches.

Overall Im not sure yet where I have him but there is an argument for him going 3rd. This year there is a decent amount of RB's I like as my #1 where last year there was 3. I still havent fully assessed exactly where I rank them this year.

I've liked Charles for a few years now. The first year, I got him at 5, and was ecstatic. Then he went down with a knee. Then last year, I was "stuck" with him at 11. I think if he falls to 6 this year, it will be a three-peat.
