JAMAAL CHARLES, KANSAS CITY CHIEFS RB
After the Kansas City Chiefs hired Andy Reid as head coach, Jamaal Charles was primed for a huge year in the mold of LeSean McCoy and Brian Westbrook. He delivered, compiling 1,980 total yards and scoring 19 total touchdowns. He also single-handedly won millions of Fantasy Football playoff matchups in an incredible Week 15 performance (215 total yards and five touchdowns) against the Raiders.

CHARLES IN MADDEN NFL 25 (99 OVR, 98 SPD, 99 ALU, 99 ACC)
Jamaal Charles has speed that Madden NFL players dream about. Only a few players have that top-end speedm and NONE control it quite like Charles. Even if defenders think they have an angle, Charles’ 99 Elusiveness rating often leaves defenders wondering how they missed the tackle. Add in a 95 Catch rating and Charles is easily one of the best backs in Madden NFL 25.

KEY PLAY: SINGLEBACK ACE – HB OFF TACKLE
This is a consistent run that will get double team blocks on the defensive end. If you can learn to read your blocks, you can break huge gains and capitalize on Charles’ amazing speed.

Pro Tip: If it looks like this run isn’t going anywhere, get in behind your lineman to pick up a few yards.
