Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles back to full practice Thursday

The ever-ambiguous "illness" and "DNP" labels were affixed to Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles @jcharles25 on Wednesday, but he was back as a full participant during Thursday's practice. Holding Charles out Wednesday, by all reports, was merely a precaution and is set to play in a largely meaningless Week 17 game against the red-hot Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Analysis:

Charles' stats are lost in today's high-flying, big numbers NFL. The 26-year-old back ranks sixth all-time in yards per carry (5.8) and the five guys in front of him are a veritable "who's who" of prolific scrambling quarterbacks, making Charles the best per-carry runner of all-time thus far in his career. If the former Texas All-American is poised to set a career-best in rushing yards Sunday and will eclipse 1,500 rushing yards after he gains 44 more yards. Fantasy owners should have no qualms starting him.
