Steve Breaston drops down the Chiefs depth chart: Fantasy implications

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Steve Breaston appears to be falling down the Chiefs' depth chart after being marked as a healthy scratch prior to Monday's game against the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Steve Breaston appears to be falling down the Kansas City Chiefs' depth chart, according to Pro Football Talk. Breaston was a healthy scratch before Monday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Romeo Crennel explained the decision, saying that he wanted to take a look at younger wideouts, and Breaston hasn't made many plays this season.

Fourth-round rookie Devon Wylie started ahead of Breaston, but did not make any impact on the game. He played six snaps, but was not targeted once by quarterback Matt Cassel.

Fantasy Impact: Breaston has had at least 47 receptions in each of his last four seasons, but has just six receptions for 61 yards so far this year. It doesn't help that Cassel has been awful. Right now, Breaston appears to be no better than No. 5 on the Chiefs' depth chart, and should not be given starting consideration in any fantasy format.
