ESPN's Fantasy Football Rankings Has Jamaal Charles Fourth Overall

New, comments

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles put one of the most efficient seasons in NFL history for a running back averaging over six yards per carry en route to a 1,467 yard season. That helped make him one of the best fantasy football options in 2010.

The downside? 

Touchdowns. He didn't score many of them -- only five rushing. That's probably one of the reasons he isn't the top ranked fantasy football player heading into the 2011 season.

ESPN's fantasy rankings are out and Charles comes in at No. 4 overall behind Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster and Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson.

Among the other rankings from ESPN:

WR Dwayne Bowe is the 13th ranked receiver

QB Matt Cassel is the 16th ranked quarterback

RB Thomas Jones is the 47th ranked running back

TE Tony Moeaki is the 16th ranked tight end

Chiefs defense is the 12th ranked defense

WR Jonathan Baldwin is the 60th ranked receiver

WR Dexter McCluster is the 97th ranked receiver
