2013 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff
The Chiefs had a two headed monster in the backfield last season and it looks like the same monster may be lurking. It would be difficult to argue any other team having a better one-two punch than the Chiefs. Charles carrying the ball 230 times for 1,467 yards and Jones with 245 carries for 896 yards is just an outstanding tandem. From a fan perspective, what the Chiefs' coaching staff did with their backfield last year was great. From a fantasy owners perspective it was somewhat of a nightmare. Charles' owners were unhappy because they wanted more touches and Jones' owners were happy to see him with so many carries. With 245 carries, Jones was a viable second back in many leagues and a definite bye week filler. This year Jones will be 33 and I have to believe his numbers will be on the decline. It would not surprise me to see the Chiefs start the season with an even number of carries for both backs and at some point pull back Jones' carries as his yard per carry drops. I'd like to say I'm comfortable with another 900 yard season from Jones, but that is not the case. I believe this year Jones' age will start to show.
