Charcandrick West Fantasy Football News 2019

6:12pm EST 12/13/18

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Chargers. So it’s Damien Williams, Darrell Williams and Charcandrick West in Kansas City’s backfield. Damien is the best bet for touches and is in the RB2 mix.

The Chiefs list RB Spencer Ware (shoulder, hamstring) as doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Chargers after he missed practice all week. Ware was able to play through the injuries last week, but it doesn't look like he'll be able to tomorrow. His absence would leave Damien Williams as Kansas City's lead back. Charcandrick West and Darrell Williams also figure to mix in, but Damien projects for 12-15 touches. That makes him a RB2 option.

The Chiefs have signed RB Charcandrick West. He spent the past 4 seasons in Kansas City, averaging 3.8 yards on 266 rush attempts and catching 75 balls. West knows HC Andy Reid's offense and should help out in passing situations. Spencer Ware will remain the Chiefs' lead ball-carrier.

The Jets have signed RB Charcandrick West, who was just cut by the Chiefs. West has averaged just 3.8 yards per carry for his career, although he's totaled 75 catches over the past 3 seasons. He figures to provide insurance behind RBs Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell in New York. West might have trouble holding a roster spot once RB Elijah McGuire is ready to return from his broken foot.

The Chiefs have released RB Charcandrick West. He served as the team's #2 RB last year but was expendable with the return of Spencer Ware from his knee injury and the additions of Damien Williams and Kerwynn Williams this offseason.

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (illness) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. With RB Kareem Hunt unlikely to play much, if at all, RB Akeem Hunt is in line to handle the majority of backfield duties. The 3rd-year pro has just 41 NFL carries under his belt, although he's averaged 5.0 yards per. Hunt has also averaged 7.9 yards on 12 catches. He caught 86 balls over his final 2 years at Purdue and tested as an above-average athlete in the pre-draft process (63rd percentile SPARQ). It'd be tough to trust Hunt in season-long lineups, but he's an intriguing DFS value.

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos. Players almost always play through illnesses, but his status will be worth checking on Sunday. Chiefs-Broncos doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET, so we'll look for an update in the morning. With RB Kareem Hunt not expected to play much, if at all, West's absence would leave Akeem Hunt as Kansas City's lead back.

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (personal) is out for this weekend's game against the Jets. He's been a thorn in RB Kareem Hunt's side, totaling 5 carries and 14 targets over the past 3 weeks. His absence is a slight boost to Hunt's outlook.

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) has been a full-go in practice this week and is set to return for Monday night’s game against the Broncos. He’s not a fantasy option but figures to steal some 3rd-down work from RB Kareem Hunt.

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (concussion) is out for Thursday night's game against the Raiders. He's played 24% of the offensive snaps so far and averaged 2.7 touches per game. The majority of that work should go to RB Kareem Hunt vs. Oakland.

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West sustained a concussion in Sunday's game against the Steelers. It's the 1st known concussion of his career. We'll track his progress through the protocol this week. Akeem Hunt operated as Kansas City's #2 RB -- behind Kareem Hunt -- after West exited.

Chiefs Head Athletic Trainer Rick Burkholder announced that RB Spencer Ware has a torn PCL, “in addition to other damage.” He’s going for a 2nd opinion, but the injury is likely a season-ender. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport does add that Ware is hoping to land on the IR-designated-to-return list, which would allow him to come back anytime after Week 8. That sounds optimistic, though. We’ve removed Ware from the RB rankings. Kareem Hunt is obviously the big winner here. The rookie will step into the feature role in HC Andy Reid’s offense. We detailed earlier this offseason how productive that spot has been for fantasy football. RB Charcandrick West moves up to #2 on the depth chart. And RB C.J. Spiller now stands a good chance to make the squad. Check out our updated projections for the Chiefs backfield.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Chargers. That leaves Charcandrick West in what should be a feature back role.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid labeled RB Spencer Ware (ribs) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Chargers. He was limited in practice all week. Kansas City is still battling for the AFC's #2 seed, so Ware will play if he's able. The issue for fantasy owners is that Chiefs-Chargers doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday. Charcandrick West will serve in something close to a feature-back role if Ware can't go.

10:23am EST 12/26/16

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware injured his ribs in Sunday night's win over the Broncos, HC Andy Reid said. He's scheduled for an MRI on Monday. Kansas City still has a shot at the AFC's #2 seed with a Week 17 win coupled with a Raiders loss, so Ware will likely play if he's medically cleared. If not, Charcandrick West will step in as the lead back against the Chargers.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He didn't practice all week and shouldn't be considered a lock to return for Week 10. His absence leaves Charcandrick West in a feature back role in a plus matchup.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Jaguars this weekend. That'd put Charcandrick West in a feature-back role in a positive matchup. We'll get another update on Ware tomorrow.

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He'll probably need to at least get in a limited practice on Thursday to have a chance to play against the Jaguars this weekend. At this point, RB Charcandrick West looks like the favorite to start that one.

The Chiefs have signed RB Bishop Sankey off the Patriots' practice squad. They need a warm body in the backfield with Spencer Ware (concussion) and Jamaal Charles (knee) iffy for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Sankey has been a colossal bust since being selected in the 2nd round of the 2014 draft, averaging 3.8 yards per carry with just 4 total TDs. He'll back up RB Charcandrick West if Ware and Charles are both out this weekend. Sankey isn't worth adding to fantasy rosters.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles will have his knee checked out by Dr. James Andrews this week, HC Andy Reid said. Charles started experiencing swelling a couple of weeks ago and was inactive for today's game against the Colts. We should get an update on his status this week, but he seems like a long shot to play against the Jaguars next Sunday. With RB Spencer Ware dealing with a concussion, the backfield might belong to RB Charcandrick West.
