Kansas City Chiefs tight end Kevin Boss was held out of practice this week with a concussion. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Kevin Boss (concussion) did not practice this week. The Chiefs are preparing to play the New Orleans Saints in Week 3 and might be without Boss.

Fantasy Analysis: Boss was looking like a legitimate target for Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel before his injury. The team has been fond of using their two tight ends, using heavy sets and switching them out quite a bit. Boss was seeing action and appeared to be a decent sleeper in fantasy leagues, but this injury will slow his progress. Boss is someone to keep tabs on, because when he's healthy, he could be a solid pickup.
