Travis Kelce caught 6-of-7 targets for 46 yards in the Chiefs' Week 15 win over the Chargers.
Kelce committed his second drop inside the ten-yard line in as many weeks late in the first quarter. The good news is it was his lone missed target of the night in an efficient, chain-moving effort that lacked big plays. Kelce will get one of the best tight end matchups possible when Kansas City hosts Miami next. Dec 16 - 11:53 PM

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-13 targets for 74 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

The Chiefs made it a priority to get Kelce the rock in this one, but he narrowly missed three touchdowns to turn a solid game into what could have been a spectacular one. Kelce dropped a would-be score inside the ten-yard line, had another overturned by a penalty on RT Mitchell Schwartz, and scored from 17 yards out early only for the play to be negated on replay. Kareem Hunt scored from a yard out one play later. Kelce will get a tougher Week 15 draw against the Chargers, who held him to one catch for one yard when those teams met in Week 4.
Dec 10 - 4:52 PM

Travis Kelce absorbed four-of-eight targets for 94 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Chiefs’ Week 13 loss to the Jets.

Kelce got off to a blistering start with three catches for 90 yards on Kansas City’s first two drives but didn’t catch another pass until late in the fourth quarter. He got KC on the board with a 32-yard catch-and-run on the game’s opening drive, breaking a tackle on his way to the end zone. His second touchdown came on a 22-yard play-action pass from Alex Smith. Kelce torched rookie safety Marcus Maye on the play. He now has seven touchdowns on the year, which is tied for second in the league among tight ends. Kelce will look to stay hot against the Raiders in Week 14.
Dec 3 - 6:09 PM

Travis Kelce caught 3-of-4 passes for 39 yards in Week 12 against Buffalo.

Kelce was held catchless in the first half. He was wide open on a few plays, but Alex Smith didn’t see him. Kelce was invisible outside of a two catch, 35-yard opening drive in the second half. With a matchup against the Jets, Kelce should rebound in Week 13.
Nov 26 - 4:47 PM

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-14 targets for 109 yards in the Chiefs' Week 11 loss to the Giants.

The Giants are one of the worst teams at covering opposing tight ends, making this outing fairly expected. In a game the Chiefs' offense struggled to get much of anything going, Kelce was consistently their best option. Kelce will remain an elite TE1 option in Week 12 against the Bills.
Nov 19 - 4:29 PM

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-9 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 9 loss to the Cowboys.

Kelce's fifth touchdown of the season was his third in as many games. It came on an excellent timing route with Alex Smith near the goal line. In the middle of an electric campaign, Kelce has a dream matchup for Week 11 when the Chiefs come off their bye against the Giants. The "there's always next year" G-Men have been getting pulverized up the seam.
Nov 5 - 8:01 PM

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-10 targets for 133 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' 29-19, Week 8 win over the Broncos on Monday night.

Kelce has had his way with the Broncos the past three times they've met, with Kelce going over 100 yards in all three contests and scoring two touchdowns. The big tight end ripped up S Darian Stewart's coverage with a double-move in the first half on an easy 29-yard touchdown that had Stewart not even in the same area code in coverage. Kelce went quiet for a stretch after appearing to twist his ankle, but he came back with a couple chunk gains in the second half. He's now scored in back-to-back games and remains an elite TE1 next week at Dallas.
Oct 30 - 11:37 PM

Travis Kelce caught 4-of-5 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

The touchdown was Kelce's third of the season. It was a quiet night by Kelce's 2017 standards, but he's now caught at least four passes in 6-of-7 games. He's averaging 60 yards, putting him on pace for 967. That should increase. Kelce and the Chiefs host the Broncos in Week 8.
Oct 20 - 12:24 AM

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

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.
Oct 15 - 3:02 PM

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.
Oct 13 - 2:22 PM

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.
Oct 13 - 12:56 PM

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.
