Chiefs TE Kevin Boss out for season

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without the services of tight end Kevin Boss @KevinBossman because of a concussion. Boss sustained the injury in Week 2 and hasn't played since. This obviously isn't his first head trauma which has forced the team to put him on the shelf. This puts more pressure on Tony Moeaki @TonyMoeaki81 to step up as the No. 1 TE and creates a position battle between TEs Steve Maneri and Jake O'Connell. Given the Chiefs propensity to run the ball, the superior blocker will likely take over.

Fantasy Analysis:

Moeaki has some small upside as a pass-catcher but hasn't quite produced as such. Boss had three receptions for 65 yards and a score in his game and a half played. Meanwhile, Moeaki only has nine receptions for 76 yards. Needless to say, there are a few dozen tight ends you'd probably rather have since most Matt Cassel passes are headed to WRs Dwayne Bowe @DwayneBowe82 and Dexter McCluster @dextermccluster.
