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.

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.
Jan 28 - 4:57 PM

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.

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.
