worried about J Charles? (1 Viewer)

foot inj is an issue for a player that relies on speed and elusiveness (remember mcfadden's turf toe early in his career) these foot injuries (Charles does not have turf toe) often tend to be a problem for many weeks

last PS game he played in he looked slow and unable to juke anybody

week 3 PS against Pitt

7 carries 10 yds long of 11 yds, so is that 6 carries for -1 yd

2 catches 4 yds

any concern here?

for a top ten pick, top 5 PPR this requires some faith to take him

anybody heard any recent news on him?

a record for views and no responses?

was this a dumb post?

guess this could go several ways

don't worry its just pre-season, don't over react he has time to get over it

or dnd draft he sux

clearly he's a proven stud, but when healthy

still, top 5 in PPR nobody worried?

 
I think I would be concerned. At the very least give me pause before drafting him. I have the number two pick in my ppr League. I am considering possible other options.

 
Not really concerned at all to be completely honest. People were talking about this concern with Nicks after he was seen jogging/running slow in the 2nd preseason game. After the game he made comments that went along the lines of "Of course I'm not running full speed, it's preseason. We're just running through the motions out there, if that were a real game I'd be running full speed. There's no reason to run full speed and risk an injury in a preseason game though".

The starters during the preseason don't play full speed, don't show their real playbook and try their best to not be injured. It's more likely that Charles was purposely not putting full speed and weight on the foot on those runs as a small precaution than it was that he has a lingering issue. If he have ANY... ANY ANY ANY ANY small, tiny, minuscule amount of discomfort he would have been rested until the regular season. He has nothing to prove, Reid wouldn't waste his #1 player just so he could get some preseason reps in.

So no, I'm not worried at all.

 
I guess that's the

"don't worry its just pre-season, don't over react" answer

did you draft him already?
I drafted him after the injury happened without a question in my mind. I really do see no reason to be worried and if I were drafting today I'd still draft him with that pick.

No more worried about Charles than anyone else. Football is a dangerous sport, and RB is an especially dangerous position. Once the games count, I think he'll be fine... and if he's not, he'll catch 5 passes and get his yards through the air, instead.

 
Good topic, IMO. Its a guessing game i am slifhtly concerned anytime a guy enters the season after injury. May take mccoy over charles

 
Who is the backup to own in KC?

Knile Davis, 4 rushing attempts 1 target

Cyrus Gray entered first after JC went out, 2 rushing attempts, 1 target

I think Knile Davis is the most likely to take over the lions share if JC were to go down.

 
1 vote for Knile! Any more info on the backup? Based just on stats, C. Gray did about the same a Knile. Sherman had 4 receptions, no rushes. Is he just a 3rd down guy either with or without Charles?

based on what? put effort into your posts or don't bother
Says the guy with 25 posts, at least one of them now telling somebody else not to post.
The other 24 posts were in the Axe Elf thread as the faux Axe Elf's alt. The dude is a straight up troll, just ignore him.

As for Davis, he has a scary speed/strength combination that a lot of RBs would kill for (ran a 4.37 while tallying the 2nd most bench-press reps at the combine). I think he's clearly raw but also has loads of potential. It's not all upside though, as he's had trouble staying healthy in college and also has ball security issues as witnessed in college and in the preseason. Regardless, he's handcuff you want here.

I think they will share. Grab if you can.
I'd like to know this as well. However, from what i read (and I don't know who is who) but sounds like one of the backups is the running down guy and the other is passing down guy so it might not even be worth the handcuff.

 
Long term, I'm not worried and you have to accept it's football. Am I worried about Week 2? :yes: . You always worry about a player with a tweak that if they tweak it again, they give you a bagel for the week.

Dodds had some love for K Davis (I believe in one of his 'From the Gut') columns. Just sayin'
huh?
Quoting from David Dodds' "From the Gut" article before the season started:

RB Knile Davis, KC/10 - Here is a flier I like very cheaply late in drafts. Injuries decimated his college career, but he did manage 1,322 rushing yards and 13 TDs as a Sophmore for Arkansas playing in the mighty SEC. He is just a Jamal Charles injury from significant playing time in a very run-friendly offense.

Thanks Harstad...i didn't want to post FBG content without knowing whether it was free content.

Anyone got more info on this? I got a gut feeling the backup may get some love before the season is over.

 
Davis seems like the back they would rely more on if Charles went down. Watching all the preseason games he looked better and he is listed as 2 on the depth chart. I thought Shaun Draughn looked better than Gray

There aren't any hard and fast rules concern when you can and cannot post subscriber content on the forums, but a general rule of thumb I like to use is that you can excerpt to add depth to a very specific discussion, as long as you aren't giving away the reason people would want to read the article. I doubt people are reading Dodds' "From the Gut" just because they really want to know what he thinks about Knile Davis, so quoting his thoughts from the article works just fine. If I started copying half of the article onto the forums... not so much. It's sort of an "I know it when I see it" guideline, but it's served me well over the years.
