RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Kevin Boss.

2012

Boss had a forgettable season in Oakland last year, totaling only 368 receiving yards and three touchdowns. The drop in production is largely attributable to battling concussion, knee and hip injuries, which kept him from playing at 100 percent health most of the season, even if he only missed two games. The Raiders used Boss less in the passing game than perhaps expected, as his 40 targets were 30 fewer than during his previous season with the Giants. He also only received eight red-zone targets and three targets inside the 10-yard line despite the advantage of his 6-6 frame. Boss is an above average blocker who isnít going to make many defenders miss but can break tackles in the open field, posting a healthy 13.1 yards per catch. He signed with the Chiefs in the offseason after being cut by the Raiders and will compete with the oft-injured Tony Moeaki for the starting role. He will play a significant number of snaps even if he doesnít win the starting job, but he needs more targets to regain decent fantasy value.

2011

For the second season in a row, Boss totaled five touchdowns in 15 games on nearly the same yardage. Boss used a combination of size and speed to make plays for the Giants, which he will try to replicate in Oakland after signing a four-year, $16 million contract this offseason. His 6-6 frame is an asset when matched up against smaller defensive backs near the goal line Ė he had nine targets inside the 10, third most among tight ends. Boss also gets downfield very well, posting an excellent 15.2 yards per catch, third among qualifying tight ends. His one flaw, though, is hands, as his six dropped passes didnít help his 50-percent catch rate, a very low number for a tight end. After minor hip surgery in January, Boss is healthy and ready for training camp. He should be an interesting play this season, as the Raiders don't have a lot of wide receiver talent, opening up the possibility of Boss filling the void left by Zach Miller, who had success in Oakland.

2010

Bossí stats saw a modest uptick in his second season as the starter in New York, but inconsistent production week to week continues to trouble him. Boss had six games with less than 30 yards receiving, missed another to injury and failed to catch a pass on three targets in the season finale. That said, Boss has good upside considering his red-zone ability and his speed. He had 15 red-zone targets last year, giving him 34 the last two years. And he can get down field, averaging 13.5 yards per catch, second among tight ends with 40-plus receptions. The thirdyear pro from Western Oregon should continue to develop, which could pay off in greater consistency and more touchdown conversions inside the 20. Itís worth noting Boss had ankle surgery in May, but is expected to return for training camp.

2009

Boss had mixed reviews in his first full season as the starter in New York. He had a meager 33 catches for 384 yards, but 19 red-zone targets led to six touchdowns. Thanks to the Giantsí strong running game, four of those touchdowns came at the goal line, with opposing defenses focusing on Brandon Jacobs. The addition of Travis Beckum, better known for his receiving ability than blocking, will take some passing targets from Boss. However, Boss will be on the field inside the red zone and have decent value for those in scoring leagues.

2008

Boss filled in for the injured Jeremy Shockey in Week 15 and made a good impression during the Giants' postseason run. So good, that the Giants wouldn't mind moving Shockey during the offseason. If a trade occurs, Boss should shoot up your tight-end rankings. Heís bigger, more durable than Shockey and doesnít have Shockey's baggage. But he's not as quick as Shockey, and his route running isnít nearly as polished, either.

2007

Boss possesses excellent size and is a sure-handed receiver, though his blocking needs work. He'll back up Jeremy Shockey at tight end.
