Update (8/26): In Saturday night's win over the Steelers, Moeaki suffered a broken shoulder. I know it is hard to believe Tony will miss time due to an injury, but it's happening again. This leaves Fassano and rookie Travis Kelce (who is suffering from a knee injury) as the only viable TE options in KC.

Any initial hope that Moeaki would be a nice replacement for Tony Gonzalez faded once knee injuries became the norm. The Chiefs were obviously concerned enough to sign Anthony Fasano and draft Travis Kelce, moves that put Moeaki's role and roster spot in jeopardy. There is no reason to consider the 26-year-old for fantasy unless a dramatic turnaround occurs.

Update: 9/1 Tony Moeaki has been released from the Chiefs.

Better offense means more chances for Succop, who will be fantasy-worthy here and there in 2013. For example, two games against the Raiders. Actually, Alex Smith's time with the 49ers included many a strong game for his kicker, which actually makes Succop a semi-sleeper, as far as kickers go. Regardless, there are better draft-day options.

Injuries crushed this unit a year ago. When healthy, there are legitimate playmakers at all three levels, including safety Eric Berry, pass rusher Tamba Hali and nose tackle Dontari Poe. Still, the KC defense allowed over 26 points per game and ranked 29th in sacks. If the Chiefs become a surprise playoff contender, this side of the ball will have improved lots, but let that improvement show before putting the defense on your fantasy roster.

Favorite Team: New York J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets! One day they'll win another one. Lets just hope the drought isn't as long as for us Jets fans as it was for those Red Sox fans.

I've been a fantasy football nut for over 15 years. Whether defending my title, as is the case most years, or making my move to take back my championship trophy, I can't wait for each season to begin.
