Travis Kelce caught 8-of-8 targets for 140 yards in the Chiefs' Week 13 win over the Falcons.
The team leader in every receiving category, Kelce continually ripped the Falcons down the middle of the field. The 100-yard effort was his third in a row, while the 140 yards were a new career high. Kelce has been good since 2014, but he's been becoming great in the absence of Jeremy Maclin. Even with Maclin finally nearing a return from his groin injury, it's hard to see Kelce slowing down. He'll be an elite TE1 for the fantasy playoffs. The Raiders are an attackable Week 14 matchup. Dec 4 - 4:39 PM

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-15 targets for 101 yards in Kansas City's Week 12 win over the Broncos.

Kelce easily led the Chiefs in receiving, but didn't come alive until the fourth quarter. He saw heavy targets in a game Alex Smith attempted 44 passes. Kelce set up the game-winning field goal in overtime with a 16-yard catch. He's now gone over 100 yards in two straight weeks. Kelce is a locked in TE1 for Week 13 against Atlanta.
Nov 28 - 1:45 AM

Travis Kelce pulled in seven-of-nine targets for 108 yards Sunday in the Chiefs' Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

Kelce was targeted four times on the Chiefs’ opening drive, though he lost five yards on an ill-advised jet sweep inside the five-yard-line. That forced the Chiefs to settle for a field goal. He later made a great double move to beat Vernon Hargreaves for a gain of 44 yards down the left sideline. Kelce was clearly Alex Smith’s preferred target on Sunday and should be a no-brainer TE1 next week against the Broncos.
Nov 20 - 5:05 PM

Travis Kelce caught 3-of-6 targets for 31 yards in the Chiefs' Week 10 win over the Panthers.

Kelce should have had a much bigger afternoon. Alex Smith didn't even see his tight end standing wide open in the end zone on a potential 18-yard touchdown, then Smith overthrew him by about five yards in the end zone later in the game. Kelce also dropped a pass that would have gone for 20-plus yards down the middle. Kelce will be a TE1 next week at home against the Bucs.
Nov 13 - 5:00 PM

Travis Kelce was ejected from Sunday's Week 9 game against the Jaguars for committing two personal fouls.

Kelce wanted a pass interference call in the end zone on a fourth-quarter incompletion and lost his cool when the refs wouldn't hear his side of the argument. He received a 15-yard personal foul for unsportsmanlike conduct and was later tossed for throwing his towel at an official. The two flags nearly pushed Kansas City out of field-goal range. He was having a productive day before his meltdown, turning seven targets into five catches for 58 yards. Kelce can expect to pay a fine, though a suspension would probably be a bit excessive.
Nov 6 - 3:48 PM

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-10 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's Week 8 win over the Colts.

Kelce did all of his damage in the first half, making six of his catches for 96 yards and a touchdown. He lost targets to Tyreek Hill when Nick Foles took over in the third quarter. The breakout is overdue after Kelce was held under 40 yards the last three weeks. Even if Alex Smith doesn't get cleared for Week 9, Kelce will remain a midrange TE1.
Oct 30 - 5:00 PM

Travis Kelce snagged two-of-three targets for 24 yards Sunday in the Chiefs' Week 7 win over the Saints.

All three of his targets came in the first half. Kelce was a victim of game-flow this week, as the Chiefs built a lead and coasted in the second half by handing it off to workhorse Spencer Ware. In total, the Chiefs threw just 24 passes compared to 28 rushing attempts. Kelce should be in for a bounce-back game next week against the Colts.
Oct 23 - 5:02 PM

Travis Kelce caught 3-of-3 targets for 32 yards in the Chiefs' Week 6 win over the Raiders.

None of the Chiefs' pass-game option lit up the box score. Chris Conley led the team with four targets, while he, Kelce, and Jeremy Maclin each caught a team-high three passes. Kansas City leaned heavily on its running game, riding it to 183 yards and all three touchdowns. Kelce should rebound next week at home against a Saints defense that has been gashed all year.
Oct 16 - 7:57 PM

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-8 targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Steelers.

Kelce was shut down for the entire game. He struggled to get anything going and had a bad drop, but salvaged his night with a touchdown on the final drive. Kelce is on pace for a 108/972/8 line through four weeks. He'll get a matchup with the Raiders after Kansas City's bye.
Oct 3 - 1:04 AM

Travis Kelce caught 6-of-7 targets for 89 yards and a touchdown Week 3 against the Jets.

The Jets had no idea what to do with Kelce Sunday. He got open twice on shallow crossers early in the game in the red zone, diving for the pylon on a 12-yard touchdown on the first and getting tackled at the three on the other. He failed to convert on a screen on the next play. Kelce started the second half with a big play as well, easily running away from Calvin Pryor on a slant and running over Marcus Gilchrist to finish the run. He likely could have had an even bigger game, but the Jets' ineptitude on offense allowed the Chiefs to sit on the ball in the second half. Kelce’s upside is limited by his offense, but he is among the most reliable options in the league. He will be a solid TE1 on Sunday night against the Steelers.
Sep 25 - 7:32 PM

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-7 targets for 34 yards Week 2 against the Texans.

With Alex Smith struggling, Kelce struggled to get anything going downfield. He could have saved his fantasy day with a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but he could not come down with a one-handed grab. Kelce's consistency keeps him in the TE1 conversation, but he rarely blows up for big games. That should remain the case next week against the Jets.
Sep 18 - 7:33 PM

Travis Kelce delivered six catches for 74 yards on seven targets Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 1 win over the Chargers.

He didn’t secure his first catch until about five minutes left in the second quarter. Kelce helped the Chiefs march down the field in overtime with a pair of highlight-reel grabs. He beat Dwight Lowery to convert a third-and-three before overpowering Kyle Emanuel to set up a first-and-goal at San Diego’s eight-yard line. Kelce looked sharp Sunday and should remain a clear-cut TE1 next week when the Chiefs travel to Houston.
Sep 11 - 5:34 PM

Travis Kelce caught all three of his targets for 37 yards Saturday against the Bears.

All three of his catches converted third downs including a great contested grab in the second quarter. Unlikely to play next week, Kelce finishes the preseason with six grabs for 61 yards. He is locked in as a top-five tight end.
Aug 27 - 3:28 PM

Chiefs signed TE Travis Kelce to a five-year, $46 million extension through 2021.

It's been a good week for Zeus. First he landed a reality dating show on E! Now, he's the NFL's second highest-paid tight end behind only Jimmy Graham. Kelce has emerged as a huge weapon for Kansas City, hauling in 1,737 yards and 10 touchdowns over his last two seasons. He's been a model of consistency, as his stats from 2015 were almost identical to the ones he posted a year earlier. The deal comes with $20.5 million guaranteed. Although Kelce often frustrates fantasy owners because he isn't force fed targets by Alex Smith, he is a difference-making presence in the Chiefs' offense, and is also capable of manhandling opponents in the run game. At age 26, Kelce is a complete tight end still in his ascent phase.

Deadline.com reports Travis Kelce will star in a reality dating show for E!

Catching Kelce will premiere "later this year." It's ticketed for eight episodes. The show has a convoluted concept, but will apparently feature at least one woman from every U.S. state. Set your DVRs now.
