Travis Kelce caught 5-of-7 targets for 77 yards in the Chiefs' Divisional Round loss to the Steelers.
The Chiefs got Kelce the ball on a couple shovel passes, with one picking up a good chunk of yards but the other being stuffed for a minimal gain inside the 10-yard line. Kelce also had a horrible drop on deep ball down the middle in the third quarter and took out his frustration two plays later with a dumb personal foul penalty to make it 3rd-and-20. At the end of the day, Kelce's stat line was respectable and he had a great individual season, leading all tight ends with 1,125 yards and finishing one catch behind Dennis Pitta's 86 grabs for the position lead. Kelce scored just four touchdowns but clearly became the Chiefs' top pass-game option in his fourth pro season. Kelce is locked up through 2021 and just turned 27. He and Rob Gronkowski are fantasy's top two tight ends. Jan 16 - 12:14 AM

Travis Kelce caught 1-of-2 targets for eight yards Week 17 against the Chargers.

Kelce appeared to play the entire game and made a couple nice blocks on some of the offense's big plays, but he was not very involved. Despite the down week, Kelce still finished the regular season with 85 catches for 1,125 yards, which are both easily career-highs. He should be a much bigger part of the gameplan in the Divisional Round.
Jan 1 - 8:57 PM

Travis Kelce caught 11-of-12 targets for 160 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 16 win over the Broncos.

Kelce got back to his massive pass-game role after seeing his targets scaled back some in Week 15. He's clearly the Chiefs' top playmaker not named Tyreek Hill. And with the Broncos' stud cornerbacks locking down the outside, Kelce was the X factor down the seam and on screen passes. His touchdown was an 80-yard catch-and-run on a screen to the right. He and No. 2 TE Demetrius Harris combined to see 21 targets and scored both touchdowns. Kelce has now topped 100 yards in five of his past six games. He'll be a top-three option next week against San Diego.

Travis Kelce caught 3-of-5 targets for 41 yards in the Chiefs' Week 15 loss to the Titans.

Kelce came into Week 15 with four-straight 100-yard games. The streak was bound to snap eventually, especially in this weak passing offense. And with Jeremy Maclin back to 100 percent from his multi-week groin injury, he took over as the No. 1 and led the Chiefs in targets, catches, and yards. Kelce will look to rebound next week against the Broncos, who he dusted for 8-101 on 15 targets in Week 12. But that was obviously with Maclin out of the lineup.

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-8 targets for 101 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

The 100-yard effort was Kelce's fourth straight, and fifth in seven games. Like he's done for the entirety of his hot streak, Kelce was gashing the defense for huge gains up the seam. Kelce could have had an even bigger game had Alex Smith not gone into witness protection after halftime. Most encouragingly, the big night came with Jeremy Maclin back in the lineup. Kelce will be a top-three tight end for next week's home matchup with the Titans.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 05:00:00 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.

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.
Sun, Oct 30, 2016 05:00:00 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.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 05:02:00 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.

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.

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.
