FANTASY FOOTBALL 2015: BUST OF THE WEEK (1) (JAMAAL CHARLES)
FANTASY FOOTBALL 2015:
BUST OF THE WEEK (1) (JAMAAL CHARLES)
BEAST DOME NATION.
Coming into Week 1 of the 2015 NFL Season, every Fantasy Expert is high on Jamaal Charles as if he were coming off of his 2012 campaign, which included over 1,500 Yard Rushing yards along with a career high 285 carries. The 2015 Jamaal Charles is only a shade of how good he once was, as Jamaal is coming off of a 1st Round Pick Record low 206 Carries and just a tad over 1,000 rushing yards on the ground in 2014. With Jamaal Charles being held on average under 11 carries a game in his last 5 matchups to close out the 2014 season, it is time to realize that Jamaal is not even a fraction of the Jamaal he once was.
Heading into Week 1 of the NFL season as the most expensive Running Back in Daily Fantasy on DraftKings at 7,900, and going up against the Hard Knocks Houston Texans Defense, in Houston. Andy Reid and Jamaal Charles Fantasy Football owners will have to hope for a miracle, or just pretend like they know exactly what you’re doing taking him Top 3, because Jamaal Charles.
You are my BUST OF THE WEEK
The Texans Defense is much stronger than they were in 2014. The two biggest moves that will be most evident for the Texans Defense this season is the addition of Vincent Wilfork, he is big enough to count as two moves. Wilfork will create so much pressure up the middle that Quarterbacks will not be able to step up in the pocket when J.J. Watt and others create pressure from the outside, Running Backs will meet a brick wall if they take the carry up the middle. The biggest impact will be the return of Jadeveon Clowney. I am excited to see Clowney who will finally be back ready to BEAST after missing nearly all of the 2014 season with a knee injury. Clowney is also the perfect hybrid DE/LB to contain Jamaal Charles from breaking runs to the outside as Clowney’s speed is unreal for his position, and we all know how hard this guy can hit. With Clowney holding containment turning Charles back to the middle, Brian Cushing will eat him up for breakfast/lunch and dinner. Jamaal is the type of Running Back that the Chiefs need to limit how many times he gets hit in a game. A couple big hits from Watt/Wilfork/Clowney/Cushing is sure to leave Jamaal banged up which is the last thing his owners want as we embrace the upcoming four months of the 2015 season.
