Jamaal Charles May Be No. 1 Fantasy Football Back Heading Into 2011

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles has been on fire since the midway point of the 2009 season and more and more people are starting to notice.

Prior to the 2009 season, only some people -- mainly Football Outsiders -- were predicting big things from Charles. By 2010, some people were still skeptical of what he could but, by the end of last season, Charles is regarded as one of the top five running backs in football.

In 2011, that ranking could rise -- all the way to the top.

Rotoworld's Evan Silva ranked the top 10 fantasy football running backs heading into 2011 and Charles sits at the top of the list with Silva writing, "I'll take his situation-talent combo over any back's in the league."

We'll see if Charles can keep up his near-record-breaking yards per carry number. If he can do that and hits 250 carries in 2011...watch out, NFL.
