Week 12: at Oakland Raiders
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Alex Smith hasn't needed to throw the ball much as Jamaal Charles has dominated the last two opponents in the rushing phase of the game - Smith posted 11/16 for 108 yards passing, with zero TDs, interceptions, or sacks taken against the Seahawks last week. He threw 17/29 for 177 yards, zero TDs or interceptions while taking six sacks at Buffalo (for -26 yards) - K.C. won both games. There simply isn't much fantasy juice to be had out of this passing attack entering the final weeks of the season as the Chiefs don't need to throw the football to win games. This week, the pathetic 0-10 Raiders await the Chiefs in the Black Hole - to date, Oakland has allowed an average of 235.4 net passing yards per game (12th in the NFL), but over three times as many passing scores - 18 - as interceptions generated (five, tied for 27th in the NFL). They have only 10 sacks this year (dead last in the NFL). Philip Rivers had a modest day against this group last week (22/34 for 180 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions) but Denver stomped them for 33/49 yielding 353 net passing yards, five TDs and two interceptions thrown just two games ago. Advantage, K.C. - but realize that they may not need to throw the football much in this one.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 9 vs NYJ (3 / 3 / 24 / 1 rec)
Fasano was on the receiving end of one of the more fortuitous touchdowns of the year. He cut a defensive lineman in pass protection and was lying on his back when a deflected ball landed in his gut. He then lunged forward for a yard into the end zone for the score. Fasano had 2 other receptions for 22 yards, and on both plays he was so wide open it was as if the defense had completely forgotten about him.
2014 Week 10 vs BUF (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Fasano's only target and only catch came on a short dump off on 3rd and 15. He fought through one tackle but came up well short of the marker.
