The release of Anthony Fasano makes Travis Kelce an "every-down tight end."
Aside from athletic freak Jamaal Charles, Kelce was arguably the Chiefs' most prolific offensive player last season, grabbing 67 catches for 862 yards and five scores. Kelce might never leave the field now that Fasano is out of the picture. Assuming a clean bill of health, Kelce could easily put up Greg Olsen numbers next season (84 receptions, 1,008 yards, six touchdowns in 2014). Feb 27 - 9:54 AM

Travis Kelce caught seven passes for 84 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Chargers.

Kelce's touchdown was a fumble recovery in the end-zone. He'll finish 2014 with a 67/862/6 line, clearly establishing himself as Alex Smith's No. 1 option in the second half. Despite losing snaps to in-line TE Anthony Fasano, Kelce was second on the team behind only Dwayne Bowe with 81 targets. Kelce will return as a top-ten fantasy tight end in 2015.

Travis Kelce caught 4-of-7 targets for 31 yards in the Chiefs' Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

It was a disappointing day for Kelce, who also committed a personal foul. Kelce has proven to be a true weapon in his first healthy NFL season, but coach Andy Reid only occasionally decides to feature him in the passing game. Nevertheless, he's a dynamite option in dynasty leagues.

Travis Kelce has played on 80.4 percent of the snaps the last two weeks.

Kelce's usage has quietly spiked recently even though Anthony Fasano has been healthy. Kelce ran a season-high 46 routes in Week 14 and backed that up by running 30 in Week 15 -- his third-highest mark of the season. Over the last month, Kelce is fantasy's No. 4 tight end and faces a Steelers defense burnable in every facet this week. He's clearly in play as a TE1 for both season-long and daily players.

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-6 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown Week 15 against the Raiders.

Kelce was targeted twice on the first drive of the game and was involved in the passing game throughout. His score came on a 20-yard catch in the third quarter. Kelce caught a quick slant at around the 15-yard line and then ran through four Raiders' defenders into the end zone. Kelce has all the makings of a fantasy superstar, but he is somewhat limited by the Chiefs' offense. He will still be a low-end TE1 Week 15 against the Steelers.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:11:00 PM

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-9 targets for 110 yards Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Kelce paced the Chiefs in receptions, yards and targets, and the 110 yards were his career high. Kelce lost a fumble late in the game and had a couple false start penalties, but he also showed he is Kansas City's best passing game weapon. Kelce will continue to be up and down, but he will be a solid TE1 Week 15 against the Raiders.

Travis Kelce secured all three of his targets for 36 yards in Sunday night's Week 13 loss to Denver.

Kelce was Kansas City's leading receiver in a game where Alex Smith completed just 15 passes. He made a 19-yard catch in traffic in the first half, but had a touchdown vultured by in-line TE Anthony Fasano. Kelce is on pace for 59 catches and six touchdowns this season. He'll remain a boom-or-bust TE1 in Week 14.

Travis Kelce caught 4-of-5 targets for 67 yards in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

Kelce was Zeus-ing every time he touched the ball, shedding tacklers and delivering punishment. That includes some thundering blocks. But coach Andy Reid and Alex Smith still only saw fit to look his way five times. With the Chiefs having the league's thinnest receiver corps, there's simply no reason for Kelce not to be drawing a minimum of 8-10 weekly targets. With 10 days to game plan for Week 13's showdown with the Broncos, perhaps Reid will come to that realization over the long weekend. Kelce remains a boom-or-bust TE1.

Travis Kelce played on 50-of-52 snaps (96.1 percent) in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

Kelce's previous season-high for snaps was 66.1 percent. The playing time is encouraging even if his box score (3-37-0 on five targets with one lost fumble) was discouraging on a day Alex Smith only attempted 16 passes. Kelce was asked to execute just 15 pass routes as the Chiefs took the air out of the ball. If Anthony Fasano's knee injury keeps him out Thursday night, we'd fire up Kelce again as a reasonable TE1 in the hopes a more pass-happy gameplan is needed.

Travis Kelce caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards Week 11 against the Seahawks.

Kelce got open on a crossing route for a 23-yard gain in the second quarter, but was stifled by the Chiefs' run-heavy game plan the rest of the day. Kelce lost a fumble on a third-third down catch late in the second quarter that set up a Seahawks field goal. Despite the disappointing day, Kelce would once again be an intriguing option against the Raiders Thursday night if Anthony Fasano (knee) is unable to play.

Travis Kelce will start against the Seahawks with Anthony Fasano (knee) ruled inactive.

Kelce should play on nearly every-down with Fasano sidelined. Kelce will be a high-upside TE1 against a Seattle defense that gives up the fourth-most points to opposing tight ends.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 11:41:00 AM

Travis Kelce (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 11.

With Anthony Fasano (knee) a game-time decision, Kelce could see an every-down role against a Seattle defense that allows the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Kelce is a mid-range TE1 with upside this week.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 07:58:00 PM

Travis Kelce (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 11.

It's the second straight week Kelce has been listed on the injury report with his ribs issue, but practiced in full. Finally staring at a bigger workload with Anthony Fasano (knee) highly questionable, Zeus should be started in every format of fantasy.

Speaking Wednesday, coach Andy Reid said Travis Kelce is now prepared for a bigger workload if Anthony Fasano (knee) is out or limited.

This quote equates to porn for fantasy footballers: "At the beginning of the year, we kind of kept the package (for Kelce) smaller," Reid said. "Then we've added to it. He's really kind of up to speed with the whole deal right now." Fasano's knee contusion is not considered overly serious, but he did miss practice Wednesday. Things are shaping up for Kelce to have an expanded role against a Seahawks defense that gives up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. If Fasano ends up inactive, Zeus will be unleashed.

Travis Kelce played on 41-of-62 snaps (66.1 percent) in Sunday's win at Buffalo.

The 66.1 percent actually represents a high point, as Kelce was in on just 54.9 percent of the snaps in the previous four games combined. He also set a new season-high with 24 routes run. Therefore, it's a bit confounding that he saw just two targets, catching both for 19 yards. We simply can't trust Andy Reid to get Kelce the ball right now, leaving him as a low-end TE1. The good news is he faces Seattle in Week 11, a team that has struggled mightily to defend tight ends this season.
