Jamaal Charles Fantasy Football Owners Finally Get Their Wish

For the Kansas City Chiefs first three games, Jamaal Charles fantasy football owners were screaming for more carries. Charles hasn't had a game with more carries than Thomas Jones to this point.

The Chiefs coaching staff indicated their carries were based on matchups.

On Sunday, in the dome against a fast defense, Charles' matchup was the best. Fantasy football owners were granted their wish and he was the feature back between he and Jones. Charles had 16 carries to Jones' eight.

The Chiefs gave him 11 carries in the first half which he turned into 61 yards. Unfortunately that rhythm didn't continue in the second half as Charles ended with five more carries on the day.

Charles had 101 total yards which is a respectable number but one that I think most Charles owners figured would be higher.
