Anthony Fasano limited in practice, decent fantasy value for Week 15

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano was limited in practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano was a limited participant in team practice on Wednesday, according to Adam Teicher of ESPN. Fasano practicing at all is a good sign, given that he is recovering from a concussion. He's currently going through the league's protocol regarding concussion recovery, and if he's been cleared for practice, he's halfway there.

There's no word on whether or not he's cleared for actually playing -- that usually comes later in the week. But practicing on a Wednesday is definitely a good sign. Fasano sustained the injury against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. He had three receptions for 28 yards and a touchdown in that game.

Fasano was injured earlier in the season as well, and has played in just eight games this year. Still, he's a reliable tight end who has scored in his last three games.

Fantasy Impact: Fasano has just 22 receptions (30 targets) for 181 yards and three touchdowns on the season. He's become a favorite target of quarterback Alex Smith in the red zone though, and has found the end zone in his last three outings. He's not a must-start tight end by any means, but his scoring production has been helpful. If he's on your radar this week, he's likely to play. The Chiefs will take on the Oakland Raiders in Week 15.
