   Top 15 Fantasy Running Back Monographs! Monograph – A highly detailed and thoroughly documented study or paper written about a limited area of a subject or field of inquiry. 5. Chiefs – Jamaal Charles, KC (10) Adrian Peterson wasn’t the only running back who came back from a torn ACL in 2012 to have a career season. Jamaal Charles was right there with him. He set career highs in carries (285) and rushing yards (1,509) despite having 3 games with fewer than 10 carries. When Charles was able to register 17 or more carries, which happened in 9 games, he finished with double digits in standard Fantasy points. As a main threat and fixture in the Chiefs offense, Charles recorded 8 games with at least 20 or more total touches while rushing for 70-plus yards in 10 of 16 games. He really showed his explosiveness with 2 standout games against the Saints and Colts where he recorded 23-plus total touches for at least 226 rushing yards. If Charles can remain healthy for a full 16 game season...

Andy Reid makes passing game the priority on day one

New Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid knows what this team's weakness was in 2012, and if there's something to be done about it, it's early on in training camp. On Wednesday, Reid left the running plays out and went all pass for the day in an attempt to hopefully breath some life into a almost nonexistent passing attack on a team that scored the fewest points...

Chiefs still waiting to sign No. 1 pick Eric Fisher

We suppose the No. 1 overall pick in April's NFL Draft is supposed to be signed dead last. It certainly looks that way as the Kansas City Chiefs have yet to sign right tackle Eric Fisher. Luckily, we hear talks are ongoing, which is a good sign. But in the meantime, Fisher is missing training camp, and that's always a concern for a rookie. According to league source,...

Chiefs' Commings breaks collarbone in practice

Instead, the Pro Bowl safety spoke optimistically about what the Kansas City Chiefs can accomplish this season under a new head coach. Berry thinks the pieces are in place for a quick turnaround from a 2-14 record...

Smith gets his first reps for KC

The first pass that Alex Smith threw on Tuesday was to Tony Moeaki, who might have a hard time making the Kansas City Chiefs after an injury-plagued start to his career. Then came passes to Tyler Shoemaker, Rico Richardson and Junior Hemingway. It was about as modest of a start as you could get to Smith's first training camp with the Chiefs - a bunch of throws to wide receivers...

Ailing Chiefs Moeaki, Avery back in practice

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) Tony Moeaki spent most of the Kansas City Chiefs' offseason workouts watching from the sideline with a baseball cap on his head. Donnie Avery did the same. They're both happy to have a helmet on instead. Moeaki had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee after last season, keeping the tight end from participating in the first round of practices under...

Chiefs get fresh start after franchise face-lift

The thousands of fans heading north on Interstate 29 to catch some of the Kansas City Chiefs' training camp the next few weeks would be wise to bring along an updated roster.
