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. Jan 29 - 1:11 PM

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.

Travis Kelce caught 6-of-9 targets for 23 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Kelce averaged 3.8 yards per catch after posting a 12.2 mark during the regular season. Kelce has proven time and again that he's one of the league's top playmaking tight ends, but he drew 10 or more targets only once in 2015. Kelce sometimes seems to need his targets manufactured for him, but it's worth it for a player so lethal in the open field. Going on 27, Kelce will be a high-end TE1 in the final year of his rookie contract.
Jan 16 - 8:17 PM

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-10 targets for 128 yards in the Chiefs' 30-0, Wild Card win over the Texans on Saturday.

Kelce roasted the Texans for 6-106-2 in the Week 1 opener. He hadn't had a 100-yard game all season afterward until doing it again to Houston on Saturday. With Jeremy Maclin locked up in tight coverage against the Texans' strong cornerback trio and then injuring his knee in the third quarter, Kelce did work over the middle, showing off his big-time YAC skills on a 48-yard catch-and-run. With Maclin looking extremely unlikely for the Divisional Round, Kelce will again be a candidate to lead the Chiefs in targets and catches.
Jan 9 - 7:42 PM

Travis Kelce caught 1-of-2 targets for 10 yards Week 17 against the Raiders.

Kelce was hardly involved in a game Alex Smith attempted just 24 passes, and he did not have a single target after halftime. Kelce has been a low-ceiling option all season, and that should continue into the playoffs.
Jan 3 - 8:54 PM

Travis Kelce caught 6-of-8 targets for 43 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 16 win over the Browns.

Kelce led the Chiefs in targets and scored the team's second touchdown on a 13-yard skinny post before halftime to give Kansas City a 17-3 lead, one they would sit on for the entire second half. Of course, Kelce fails to capitalize on previous cupcake matchups and scores for the first time since Week 12 against a tough Browns tight-end defense. Kelce will be a mid-range TE1 next week in a favorable home date with the Raiders in the finale.

Travis Kelce secured 6-of-7 targets for 73 yards in the Chiefs' Week 15 win over the Ravens.

The Chiefs funneled Kelce the ball in this one, designing tight end screens to feed him the rock. His longest gain went for 29 yards early in the second half deep down the middle. It should be noted that Kelce limped off with a knee injury late, and we're not sure whether he returned. If Kelce is healthy, he'll be a mid-range to low-end TE1 play against the Browns in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 04:17:00 PM

Travis Kelce caught 3-of-5 targets for 18 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Chargers.

Kelce didn't catch a single pass in the first half and probably did more harm than good in this one with an offensive pass interference penalty that wiped out a 67-yard touchdown by Charcandrick West. The big tight end has been really quiet the past two weeks with just five catches for 60 yards total. He'll look to rebound next week in a plus spot at the Ravens.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:12:00 PM

Travis Kelce caught 2-of-3 targets for 42 yards in the Chiefs' Week 13 win over the Raiders.

Kelce also lost a fumble at the end of his first catch while trying to create more yards after the catch. But he canceled the lost fantasy points out by catching a two-point conversion in the second half. The Raiders' once-awful tight end defense has held firm in recent weeks, and Kelce has seen his targets dip a bit with Jeremy Maclin reemerging as the go-to receiver. Kelce will still be a fine TE1 option next week against a weak Chargers defense.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 08:37:00 PM

Travis Kelce caught 4-of-7 targets for 69 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 12 win over the Bills.

Playing through a groin issue that landed him on the injury report Friday, Kelce had a really quiet first half, catching on pass for 11 yards. He made up for it in the second half with a long catch and then an 11-yard touchdown, boxing out rookie CB Ronald Darby over the middle of the end zone. The targets have been there for Kelce in recent weeks, and he gets the Raiders in Week 13.

Travis Kelce (groin) is active for Week 12 against the Bills.

Kelce popped up on the injury report Friday and was listed as questionable. He's locked in and ready to roll as a surefire TE1 thanks to a steady helping of targets.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 11:37:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Travis Kelce (ankle, questionable) will play Sunday against the Bills.

The Chiefs slapped Kelce with the questionable tag after he suffered a minor ankle injury at Friday's practice. He'll play through the pain Sunday in a game featuring two teams fighting for their playoff lives. Kelce has really only had one monster fantasy game this year, but his steady workload has allowed him to maintain his place as an every-week TE1.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 08:31:00 AM

Travis Kelce is listed as questionable for Week 12 after "tweaking" his ankle in Friday's practice.

The extent of Kelce's injury is currently unknown, but the fact that it's being characterized as a "tweak" rather than a sprain or high ankle sprain suggests he still has a chance to play on Sunday. If Kelce can't go against the Bills, the Chiefs would turn to Demetrius Harris as their starter.

Travis Kelce corralled five of seven targets for 46 yards in the Chiefs' Week 11 win over the Chargers.

Kelce had a touchdown called back on replay late in the second quarter. Like most of Kansas City’s receivers, he didn’t see much action after halftime as the Chiefs let Spencer Ware cut up the Chargers for 96 second-half yards. Though Kelce has only scored once since Week 1, he’s been pleasantly consistent with five or more catches in each of his last five games. He’s locked in as a top-five option next week against the Bills.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 08:14:00 PM

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-9 targets for 36 yards in Kansas City's Week 10 win over the Broncos.

Kelce's targets led the team, but he's now been held out of the end zone in seven of his past eight games. Kelce is a freakish talent being held back by his quarterback and playbook. Kelce possesses week-winning upside, but will remain a mid-range TE1 for next week's matchup with the Chargers.
