Nobody really expected un-drafted Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Charcandrick West to do a whole lot in the NFL this season.
Why? Well, a four-time Pro Bowl selection Jamaal Charles was ahead of him on the depth chart — he of five 1,000-yard seasons in the last six years.
But then Oct. 11 happened.
With Charles sidelined with a torn ACL, West took over the starting job and put up a 110-yard, one-touchdown day against the Steelers later that month and a 97-yard day against the Lions on Nov. 1.
He had zero football cards at the time — and still doesn’t have any.
Changing things soon will be Panini America‘s latest football release, 2015 Panini Crown Royale, which will arrive next Wednesday (Dec. 16) with West’s first RCs inside.
West has slowed a bit of late with just 408 yards and three touchdowns on the season but that’s not likely to stop Chiefs fans — and probably some speculators — from picking off his cards since he has no other options on the market.
