Chiefs released TE Anthony Fasano.
The move clears $1.959 million in cap space. More importantly for fantasy purposes, it frees up last year's TE8, Travis Kelce, to go absolutely bonkers in 2015. Going on 31, Fasano was constantly banged up in 2014, and it was reflected by his play. He caught just 25 passes for 226 yards over 15 games, and his run blocking fell off a cliff. A nine-year veteran who's had a well-rounded game, Fasano will undoubtedly latch on elsewhere, but there's no guarantee he'll crack someone's 53-man roster. Feb 26 - 1:45 PM

Date:

Anthony Fasano (knee) remained limited on Thursday.

Fasano's status is not in doubt for Week 14. He's well off the fantasy radar.
Thu, Dec 4, 2014 05:21:00 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) is listed as probable for Week 13.

Fasano was active for last Thursday night's loss to the Raiders, but only played two snaps. His role is unclear for Sunday's clash with the Broncos.
Fri, Nov 28, 2014 04:02:00 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) returned to Chiefs practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

The barely-there TE2 will be ready to rock for Sunday night's game against the Broncos.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 01:57:00 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Fasano played through his knee injury last week, but was on the field for just two snaps. His presence will continue to limit Travis Kelce's upside if he plays on Sunday night. Fasano has just a 22/203/3 line this season.
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 05:49:00 PM

Anthony Fasano caught 2-of-2 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

Returning from a knee injury, Fasano made a beautiful adjustment on an under-thrown ball from Alex Smith for his 19-yard score in the third quarter. The touchdown was Fasano's third of the season. The barely-there TE2 will take a 22/203/3 line into Week 13.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 12:28:00 AM

Anthony Fasano (knee) is active for Week 12 against the Raiders.

Fasano has zero fantasy value, but his presence renders Travis Kelce a boom-or-bust option as a TE1. Inactive for the Chiefs are QB Aaron Murray, WR Donnie Avery, WR A.J. Jenkins, CB Chris Owens, CB Jamell Fleming, C Eric Kush and G/T Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. The Chiefs are remarkably thin at receiver.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 06:59:00 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) is questionable for Thursday night's Week 12 game against the Raiders.

Fasano has been limited in practice all week after missing Week 11, but we fully expect him to play against Oakland, which will likely mean Travis Kelce goes back to being a part-time player. Still, Kelce would be a boom-or-bust TE1.
Wed, Nov 19, 2014 12:57:00 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) remained limited on Tuesday.

Barring a setback, it appears Fasano will be ready for Thursday's game against the Raiders. That, of course, is bad news for Travis Kelce owners. That being said, Fasano will remain off the radar if he suits up, while Kelce will be a boom-or-bust TE1.
Tue, Nov 18, 2014 05:09:00 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) returned to practice on Monday.

Barring a setback ahead of Thursday night's clash with the Raiders, this puts Fasano on track to return in Week 12. Travis Kelce figures to go back to playing 55-60 percent of Kansas City's offensive snaps, although that isn't a lock. Kelce will remain in the lower-end TE1 conversation against the Raiders. A blocker and possession tight end, Fasano hasn't been a fantasy factor all year.
Mon, Nov 17, 2014 01:07:00 PM

Chiefs declared TE Anthony Fasano (knee) inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

The roadblock to Travis Kelce's eruption has (hopefully) been cleared. Fasano's absence should turn Kelce into an every-down player against a Seahawks defense that has been susceptible at times to pass-catching tight ends. The Chiefs are also playing without Donnie Avery and AJ Jenkins, leaving Frankie Hammond to start opposite Dwayne Bowe. Kelce is a strong TE1 play.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 11:53:00 AM

Chiefs coach Andy Reid stated Friday that Anthony Fasano "might play" in Week 11 against the Seahawks.

Fasano did not practice at all this week and will be a game-time decision against the Seahawks. If Fasano does not play, the Chiefs might utilize Travis Kelce as a full-time player.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 02:14:00 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) remained sidelined Thursday.

Fasano is looking unlikely to suit up against the Seahawks, leaving Travis Kelce as a mouth-watering option against a defense allowing the fourth most fantasy points to tight ends.
Thu, Nov 13, 2014 05:03:00 PM

Anthony Fasano (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Fasano has a bruised knee. His status for Week 11 is uncertain. If Fasano can't go, Travis Kelce could see a much-deserved uptick in snaps. No. 3 tight end Demetrius Harris broke his foot in Week 10 and was sent to injured reserve.
Wed, Nov 12, 2014 12:52:00 PM

Anthony Fasano sustained a knee contusion toward the end of Sunday's Week 10 win at Buffalo.

A contusion is just a fancy word for a bruise, but it was severe enough that Fasano missed snaps in a close game. He finished with 47-of-62 while Travis Kelce was up at 41-of-62. Kelce owners should be monitoring Fasano's status closely heading into a plus Week 11 matchup at home against the Seahawks.
