Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman saw just ten offensive snaps in Thursday's game against the Broncos. Sherman saw a dramatic drop in snaps from 25 in Week 1 to 10 in Week 2. Given the lack of production out of the fullback spot, it shouldn't have too much impact on his fantasy value, but it could be an indicator that the Chiefs plan to move in a different direction offensively.
Several Chiefs contributed in the Week 14 loss at Arizona. Among them, running back De'Anthony Thomas rushed twice for 5 yards and made a 6-yard catch. Running back Knile Davis had a 4-yard carry and caught three passes for 3 yards. Fullback Anthony Sherman caught two balls for 8 yards. They'll all face the Raiders in Week 15.
The Chiefs backup pass catchers did little Week 12 against the Raiders. Anthony Fasano was the biggest winner, hauling in two passes for 30 yards and score. He hooked up with Alex Smith on a 19 yard strike in the third quarter. Albert Wilson also had two catches, gaining 27 yards. Frankie Hammond caught one pass for 7 yards. Fullback Anthony Sherman had one reception, but failed to gain any yards on the play. They'll take on the Broncos Week 13.
The Chiefs backup pass catchers did little Week 11 against the Seahawks. Anthony Sherman hauled in one pass for 13 yards. Phillip Supernaw also caught one pass, gaining 3 yards. Both players will look for more Week 12 against the Raiders.
The Chiefs have announced a contract extension for fullback Anthony Sherman that will keep him off the free agent market after this season. The length of the deal has yet to be revealed. The 25-year-old Sherman has participated in all 24 games since joining the team before the 2013 season, but has served mostly as a blocker for stud featured back Jamaal Charles. He has just two carries and five receptions this year.
