Tony Moeaki Fantasy News
Wednesday, August 28, 2013, 1:31pm
TE Travis Kelce, a third-round draft pick who showed great promise early in training camp, missed last week’s game at Pittsburgh because of a knee injury.
The Chiefs run a lot of formations with two tight ends, and Fasano leads the club with eight receptions for 69 yards in the preseason.
Fasano, who signed with the Chiefs as a free agent during the offseason, believes the young players can fill Moeaki’s role, especially Kelce.
“Travis has come a long way, even from spring,” Fasano said. “For a rookie, he has a lot of confidence, and a great skill set. Losing Tony, if that were to happen, would definitely be a loss, but our tight end position will be able to step in and fill the void.”
With Tony Moeaki out indefinitely with a shoulder fracture, Kelce and Fasano are suddenly on the deep league TE radar. Fasano figures to play more, but it's tough to say who will see more targets. It depends on how quickly Kelce develops.

Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki has been little more than a spectator at offseason practice after having arthroscopic knee surgery at the end of last season. HC Andy Reid said it was unlikely that Moeaki would be able to practice in the final two weeks of the offseason program and he even hedged a little when asked if Moeaki would be ready by the start of training camp in two months.
“We’ll see,’’ Reid said. “Right now I’m thinking he will be but we’ll see how that goes. He’s working like crazy.’’

“It’s important that (Moeaki) gets himself healthy and he works on the rehab part of that,” Reid said. “The combination of those two is something we’re looking at as a positive.”
Neither player is looking like a particularly good fantasy option at this point in the offseason.

Another disappointing Chiefs receiver has been tight end Tony Moeaki. He doesn’t look like the same player he was as a rookie in 2010 before he missed all of last season with a torn ACL. Moeaki has consistently been unable to shake coverage. He’s been targeted 20 times but has just 10 catches.
The Chiefs need a reliable receiver in the middle of the field if the passing game is to come alive. The Chiefs miss tight end Kevin Boss, whose season is over as the result of a concussion he suffered in Week 2.

Charles had just nine touches in the blowout loss and was seen riding an exercise bike on the sideline. We will find out Wednesday if he has an injury or the Chiefs were just being safe with their running back.
