Jamaal Charles Has a Fantasy Football Day For the Ages

When people remember some of the greatest moments in history, they always remember where they were when that moment happened. On December 16, 2013, managers who owned or went up against Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles will be able to do the same thing. When these managers talk next year at their fantasy football drafts and people ask, “How did your season end last year?” Many will say, “Jamaal Charles — that’s how it ended!” In Week 15, Charles had the greatest fantasy football day that I can recall in my entire time of playing the game. Charles  did not just score a few touchdowns or gain over 100 yards, he went off in a big way! Charles and the Chiefs went up against the division rival Oakland Raiders. This was a huge game for the Chiefs due to the Denver Broncos losing on Thursday night. For many fantasy owners, Charles was their last chance to put points up on the board in their effort to go to their league’s championship game. All Charles did was gain 215 yards of total offense (195 yards receiving) while scoring five touchdowns. In standard ESPN leagues, this accounted for 51.5 fantasy points! If this did not win you your league this week, then you must have sat every one of your players! When you drafted Charles all the way in August, you could have never imagined that this would happen during one of the most important weeks of the year. Players like Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster and Doug Martin, who were all drafted before him, were not playing in Week 15 due to injuries. Drafting Charles was a genius move for you and it really paid off in the clutch. Charles clearly won the fantasy football MVP award for 2013 with his performance this week and may have also won the NFL MVP. Charles also won the hearts of every one of his owners, and they will be forever grateful when they can rub this victory in the faces of their their fellow fantasy GMs!
