With the fantasy football dorks in full swing, ESPN and the rest of the NFL sports media are blowing Jamaal Charles WAY out of proportion. Most fantasy drafts have Charles going number 4 overall?? You've got to be kidding me. Fantasy "experts" are always drooling at the mouth trying to find the next big player every year so that they can brag to everyone about how they "knew all along" that player would shine. But I've got news for you, Jamaal Charles is NOT going to be that guy.
Now, let me also note here that I am a devout Chiefs fan, and I give credit to Charles for helping this team get off the ground and this article is not to take away from his contributions or talent in any way. I just think that the media has really taken Charles too far. There is no doubt that our opponents are going to be keying on him with 1000X Compound Microscopes as it is, so I just wish that everyone would shut up about Charles for awhile. Oh, and if you even think of picking up Charles in the first round of your draft, please get a hold of me so I can sell you some of my lakefront property in the Florida Everglades.

Charles is so awesome that it won't matter that the other teams are studying his film 24 hours a day, he STILL puts up monster numbers. (172 votes)
