2013 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Sep-02-2013 by Chris Weeks
Update (8/21): It looks like Alex Smith and Fasano have developed a nice bit of chemistry in the preseason. After Bowe, there is no clear cut second receiver on the team; if the preseason is any indication of what we'll see this season then Fasano appears to be taking over that role. The drawback here is that fellow TE Travis Kelce has also performed well. At this point, it looks like a two man race with Fasano holding the slight edge.
The Chiefs signed Fasano to a four-contract, indicating he's the starter, though incumbent and oft-injured Tony Moeaki remains on the roster. Realistically, the ex-Dolphin is a placeholder until rookie Travis Kelce takes the job. Whether that happens in 2013 is uncertain and Fasano has been a decent bye week option, scoring 14 touchdowns over the past three seasons. He has good hands, knows his way around the red zone and is a quality blocker and the Chiefs. If indeed he is the starter, Fasano could be an in-the-pinch fill in owners can grab off waivers.
Update 9/1: TE Tony Moeaki has been released, which means bigger things for both Anthony Fasano and rookie Travis Kelce. Still hard to count on either as a viable TE2, but the upside is there in deeper leagues.
