Chiefs would prefer to give RBs Jamaal Charles, Peyton Hillis 500 touches
Well, not individually.
The Kansas City Star's Adam Teicher wrote Monday that the Chiefs will do everything they can to get running backs Jamaal Charles and Peyton Hillis heavily involved this season.
"In the Chiefs' perfect world, they'll get the ball to Charles and Hillis a total of 500 times," Teicher wrote.
That's nice to envision. If Charles is healthy and can get 275 of those touches, matching his career high from 2010, he'll be a clear RB1 in fantasy. But really, when is the last time a perfect world existed for the Chiefs? I think such a number is infeasible, most likely due to injury. But hey, it should give fantasy owners some more hope for Charles and makes Hillis a possible bye-week fill-in. No matter what, it would be better than letting Matt Cassel throw it 500 times.
