Look for Jamaal Charles’ carries to drop, catches to increase

Here’s a prediction. Running back Jamaal Charles will not rush for 1,509 yards this season, as he did in 2012. But he still may gain close to 1,500 yards from scrimmage as a rusher and as a receiver. New Chiefs coach Andy Reid loves throwing to his backs, and Charles, who caught 35 passes for 236 yards last year, will more than double that this season based on what we’ve seen in training camp.
