Travis Kelce hauled in 4-of-7 targets for 37 yards in the Chiefs' Week 6 loss to the Steelers.
Fantasy owners should be happy they even got 37 yards. Kelce's first catch did not come until late in the third quarter, and that play went for negative two yards. He did come up with a 23-yard grab up the seam late in the fourth quarter, but that was about it. He should have more success against the Raiders on Thursday night. Oct 15 - 8:03 PM

Date:

Travis Kelce (concussion) is active for Week 6 against the Steelers.

Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is also ready to go, although neither is a surprise considering both players were left off the final injury report. Even in a tough matchup, Kelce should be locked into starting lineups. C Mitch Morse (foot), OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (knee), S Steven Terrell (concussion), WR Albert Wilson (knee), QB Tyler Bray, DL Jarvis Jenkins, and LB Ramik Wilson are inactive for Week 6.

Coach Andy Reid said Friday he expects Travis Kelce (concussion) to play in Week 6 against the Steelers.

He was left off the Chiefs' final injury report. It became clear Kelce was likely to play on Thursday when he turned in a full practice. It appears he should be teed up with confidence against a slumping Pittsburgh defense.

Travis Kelce (concussion) is practicing again on Friday.

After sitting out Wednesday, Kelce was suddenly upgraded to full on Thursday. We're still a bit skeptical and will await final word from the Chiefs' injury report before making assumptions, but it looks like Kelce may be on track for Sunday against the Steelers. If he plays, he's an obvious must-start.

Travis Kelce (concussion) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Kelce is suddenly on pace to suit up for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He's a top-three option at tight end for Week 6.
Oct 12 - 5:37 PM

Travis Kelce (concussion) is expected to get in a limited practice Thursday.

It is a step in the correct direction after he sat out Wednesday, but he still has several hurdles to clear before being allowed to face the Steelers on Sunday. Kelce should be considered legitimately questionable for that game.
Oct 12 - 12:51 PM

Travis Kelce (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

Kelce was concussed on Sunday night against the Texans and needs to go through the concussion protocol before gaining clearance. This suggests he's not anywhere close to that. Demetrius Harris would pick up more snaps if Kelce sits against the Steelers, but Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt should shoulder more of the load. Harris wouldn't be an appealing streaming option.

Travis Kelce suffered a concussion Sunday night against the Texans.

Kelce originally returned on Sunday night after being checked out, but he was removed from the game after halftime. "He was cleared by the UNC (unaffiliated neurological consultants), but then when he came in at halftime he complained about his memory," coach Andy Reid said. "He remembered everything in the tent, but didn’t have it once we got inside, so we chose to hold him out." It sounds like holding him out may have been precautionary, but he still will have to clear the protocol before he gets back on the field. Demetrius Harris would figure to see a boost in targets if Kelce is forced to miss time.

Travis Kelce suffered a possible concussion in Week 5 against Houston.

Kelce initially returned, but didn't play in the second half. He'll finish with eight catches for 98 yards on 11 targets. If Kelce get placed in the concussion protocol, he'll be in a race to get cleared for Week 6.
Oct 8 - 11:22 PM

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-8 targets for 111 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 4 win over the Redskins.

The Redskins have struggled to guard the tight end position this season and Week 4 was no different. Kelce looked nearly unstoppable all night and was able to get open with ease on a number of plays. Kelce now has inconsistent yardage totals through four weeks, with two 100-plus yards games and two under 40 yards. Kelce remains a high-upside fantasy option at a position currently lacking difference-makers.
Oct 3 - 12:11 AM

Travis Kelce caught his only target for one yard Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 3 win over the Chargers.

Coming off a 103-yard effort in Week 2, Kelce was scarcely used in this one as the Chiefs rode impressive rookie Kareem Hunt to yet another victory. Perhaps Kelce can make it up to fantasy owners next week against the Redskins.
Sep 24 - 9:03 PM

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-10 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Eagles.

It's a nice rebound after Kelce was held to 40 yards in the opener. Kelce got off to a fast start with 56 yards on the opening drive. He jumped over multiple players on a highlight catch-and-run shovel pass for his touchdown. Kelce is locked in as Alex Smith's No. 1 option and should continue to see heavy targets. He'll get a matchup with the Chargers in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 5:25 PM

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-7 targets for 40 yards in the Chiefs' Week 1 win over the Patriots, adding a four-yard rush.

He also drew a silly second half personal foul. The Patriots sent the cavalry at Kansas City's elite tight end, but coach Andy Reid kept him involved through creative usage, more than once using him out of the backfield. Kelce even took a direct snap. The Chiefs get the Eagles in Week 2.
Sep 8 - 12:53 AM

According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, the Patriots will focus on "taking away/limiting" Travis Kelce in Week 1.

The Patriots have installed packages to help limit Kelce in coverage. If New England succeeds in containing Kelce, it could open up more looks for Tyreek Hill downfield.
Sep 7 - 1:54 PM

Travis Kelce (calf) was removed from the Week 1 injury report and will start against the Patriots.

There was never any indication Kelce would miss Thursday night's opener. He's a top-flight TE1 and will remain that way for the duration of the season.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Kelce topped 100 receiving yards in five of the final seven weeks while catching at least seven balls in four of those games. The conservative Alex Smith will likely continue to target Kelce on high-percentage passes - the tight end hauled in 72.6% of his 117 targets last year. New England has been effective limiting opponents’ top passing threats and they’ll likely key on containing the dynamic Tyreek Hill, potentially opening up more opportunities for Kelce. He projects as our TE2 this week.
