Bills insider Joe Buscaglia believes TE Tony Moeaki is capable of pushing TE Scott Chandler for playing time this year.  With Chandler missing last week's minicamp for personal reasons, Moeaki "got a ton of time with the first-team ... and was relatively impressive," per Buscaglia.  Moeaki has always had an intriguing skill set and flashed with a 47-556-3 line in his 2010 rookie season.  He's had trouble staying healthy but is still only 27.  We'll keep an eye on Buffalo's TE situation when camp opens next month.  Neither Moeaki nor Chandler are worth targeting in standard fantasy drafts right now.

Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki suffered a fractured shoulder in Saturday night's preseason game.  That figures to knock him out for at least the 1st half of the season and may even force him to IR.  Moeaki had been running as Kansas City's 3rd TE behind Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce.  The oft-injured TE is well off the fantasy radar.

Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki underwent arthroscopic knee surgery after the 2012 season ended.  He's expected to be back on the field by May.  It sounds like it was a relatively minor procedure.  But it's still a concern considering Moeaki's lengthy injury history, which includes a torn ACL in 2011.  Kansas City is looking to deploy more 2-TE sets in 2013 with Moeaki and newly signed Anthony Fasano.  Neither guy is likely to be a fantasy factor.

Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 17. It's unclear if he's been cleared to play against the Broncos this weekend. Regardless, you should be able to do better than T-Mo at TE if your fantasy league is still playing.

Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki (head) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Colts. The team hasn’t made it official, but T-Mo is almost certainly dealing with a concussion.  He won't play.

Although he's unsure how much he'll be able to do in OTAs, Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki (knee) expects to be a full-go for training camp.  He went down with a torn ACL in last year's preseason finale.  'Rehab is good,'' Moeaki said. ''As far as team activities, I’m just doing what the trainers and the coaching staff tells me to do. I don’t really know until we get there.''  T-Mo is extremely injury-prone, but he flashed intriguing potential during a 47-catch, 556-yard rookie campaign back in 2010.  We'll continue to monitor his rehab, but a healthy Moeaki would be worth gambling on as a backup in fantasy drafts this summer.

Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki is done for the year after suffering a torn ACL in the preseason finale.  HC Todd Haley is going to catch a lot of flak for this one after leaving his starters in the game into the 2nd quarter.  TE Leonard Pope is next up on Kansas City's depth chart, although they may look to add a free-agent.  It's a situation to avoid in fantasy.  QB Matt Cassel also gets a downgrade with the news.

Chiefs HC Todd Haley loves TE Tony Moeaki's versatility.  "You’ve seen us split him out, you’ve seen us put him in the slot, you’ve seen us put him in the backfield," Haley said.  "Those are good things because now you have a chance to create (favorable) matchups either for him or for other players.”  Look for Moeaki to build on his 556-yard, 3-TD rookie campaign this season.  He's a TE2 with upside.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King came away from Chiefs camp impressed by TE Tony Moeaki.  "What interested me is the Chiefs' aggressive use of him in passing formations -- as a slot receiver, a blocker tight to the formation, and set out wide," King writes. "He's their Dallas Clark."  That sounds like a bit of an exaggeration to us.  We love Moeaki's skill-set, but he's injury-prone and playing on a run-first offense.  In a deep position, that makes him just a mid-range TE2.

Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki has been activated from the PUP list and is back at practice.  He missed the first week of camp after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason.  Barring a setback, he'll be good to go for Week 1.  T-Mo remains a risky pick because of his injury history, but there's also some upside here as he looks to build off an impressive rookie campaign.

Sports Illustrated's Don Banks reports that Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in late March.  He hasn't been able to take part in training camp yet.  Banks says that T-Mo is expected to return "soon," but this is definitely a concern considering his injury history.  Moeaki has the upside to post top-12 numbers this year, but he needs to be flagged as an injury-risk.
