FANTASY FOOTBALL WAIVER WIRE: How The West Was A RBBC (Charcandrick West)
FANTASY FOOTBALL WAIVER WIRE:
How The West Was A RBBC
BEAST DOME NATION.
With a Waiver Wire so thin this week due to no major injuries outside of Jamaal Charles, today’s Waiver Wire is going to be more of a BEAST or BUST and talk about what we should expect from the Kansas City Chiefs and their running game moving forward. First the two candidates.
Knile had every chance in the world to win the clear #2 RB job for the Chiefs. He was “Thee” guy for the Chiefs during the Preseason. He even vultured a TD from Jamaal Charles during the Week 2 Thursday Night Football game against the Broncos. Despite his average performance so far this season, Knile Davis has been demoted behind Charcandrick West. Watching Knile Davis and his 2 carries last week, Knile still looks like a strong back who can fall forward when he is hit, but I also see what Andy Reid see’s in Charcandrick.
This guy is actually more special than I originally thought. He is very quick, he is bigger than most people think, and like the famous Pokemon Chamander, Charcandrick comes standard with a cut. When Charmander goes out for a pass, it is tough for linebackers to cover him as he jukes one way and goes the other. When Charmander takes a handoff up the middle, he has the ability to cutback and bounce it outside for a nice gain. I do not want to say Charmander is a Superstar, but he is a bigger/stronger Shane Vereen, and that is exactly what the Chiefs need right now.
Before I go off and say that Charcandrick is a BEAST, we do have to take note that the Chiefs are bringing in Ben Tate and Pierre Thomas to round out that backfield. No matter what RB they sign, either of them are more talented than Charcandrick from what we have seen last season, and instantly this would turn into a RBBC. I do expect the Chiefs to go as far as to sign one of them as it would seem foolish to rely on two RBs who do not have the experience of a Vet, nor the Superstar name that defenses have to respect.
In the end once the Chiefs sign a RB.
CHARCANDRICK WEST. BUST
As for Week 6 goes, Charcandrick makes for a good RB3 in Deep Leagues. After Week 6, his future is undecided.
