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. Nov 21 - 12:06 AM

Date:

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.
Nov 16 - 4:23 PM

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.
Nov 16 - 11:41 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.
Nov 14 - 7:58 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.
Nov 13 - 5:00 PM

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.
Nov 10 - 9:34 AM

Travis Kelce was held to two catches for 19 yards in Week 10 against the Bills.

Kelce secured both of his targets, but was a non-factor in a game where Alex Smith threw for just 177 yards. His only notable play was a third-down catch late in the fourth quarter. Kelce will remain a boom-or-bust TE1 in Week 11 against Seattle.
Nov 9 - 5:46 PM

Travis Kelce (ribs) is probable for Week 10.

Kelce is Rotoworld's No. 6 tight end for Sunday's game against the Bills. He's on pace for a 64/838/8 line through nine weeks.
Nov 7 - 6:33 PM

Travis Kelce (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 10.

It confirms Kelce didn't suffer any setbacks in last week's win. Kelce is a boom-or-bust TE1 for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Nov 5 - 5:50 PM

Travis Kelce had four catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 9 win over the Jets.

Kelce beat Antonio Allen for a 12-yard touchdown. He was only targeted five times and played fewer snaps than Anthony Fasano, but is a matchup nightmare whenever he's on the field. Kelce is on pace for a 64/838/8 line through nine weeks.
Nov 2 - 5:08 PM

Travis Kelce (ribs) is active for Week 9 against the Jets.

Kelce was listed as probable on the injury report, so he was fully expected to play. The Chiefs inactives are WR Donnie Avery, QB Aaron Murray, CB Chris Owens, C Eric Kush, CB Jamell Fleming, LG L. Duvernay-Tardif, and OLB Josh Martin.
Nov 2 - 11:35 AM

Travis Kelce (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 9.

Kelce has been playing through a rib issue, but it shouldn't impact his snaps. He's a TE1 with scoring upside against a Jets' secondary that's allowed seven passing touchdowns over the last two games.
Oct 31 - 6:33 PM

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

It's a similar routine to the one he followed in Week 8 before suiting up. Going up against a Jets defense that bleeds passing touchdowns, Kelce is a strong bet to find the end zone.
