Charles had 78 rushing yards (and both of his touchdowns) on 22 carries, adding 50 receiving yards on five receptions. Both yardage totals led the now 6-0 Chiefs.
Fantasy impact: Charles has had at least 100 combined rushing and receiving yards in every game this season, the only player in the NFL who can say that. He has also scored in every game, with his two scores Sunday bringing him to seven on the season.
He has been the best running back in the league this season, and it frankly hasn't been particularly close. While he is unlikely to continue at his current ridiculous pace, Charles has to be considered one of the two or three most reliable running backs in fantasy going forward. Considering he went near the end of the first round in most drafts, he might have been the single best running back investment in fantasy.
