Injury History

Date League Injury Details
Sep 3, 2013 NFL Knee Patella Fracture Kelce had arthroscopic surgery on his bothersome knee, which revealed a cartilage issue that led to a microfracture procedure. He missed all but 1 play of 2013 but didn't lose another game to the knee. Original injury deemed a bone bruise.
Oct 19, 2014 NFL Chest Rib Sprain/Pull Unspecified Kelce sustained a rib injury but played through it. HC Andy Reid called it a sore rib "mostly up in the cartilage area."
Aug 31, 2015 NFL Pedal Ankle Sprain/Pull Unspecified Grade 1 Kelce suffered an ankle sprain in a preseason practice. He sat out the 4th preseason contest, though HC Andy Reid said he would have played if it were a regular-season game. Kelce returned for Week 1.
Oct 8, 2017 NFL Head Cranial Concussion Grade 1 Kelce suffered a concussion against the Texans. He was initially cleared to return to the game but showed some short-term memory loss at halftime. Kelce cleared the protocol in time to play the following week.
Jan 6, 2018 NFL Head Cranial Concussion Grade 1 Kelce missed the 2nd half of the Wild Card Round loss to the Titans with a concussion. It was his 2nd of the season.
Feb 28, 2017 NFL Shoulder Kelce had February shoulder surgery that HC Andy Reid indicated was a "cleanup" type procedure. He missed no game time, and it's not clear what the original injury was (which also caused no missed game time).
Jan 8, 2020 NFL Knee Strain Grade 1 Kelce had practiced on a limited basis due to knee soreness ahead of Divisional Round matchup against the Texans
Oct 10, 2021 NFL Cervical Neck Stinger Kelce suffered "a little bit of a stinger" during Week 5's loss to the Bills. He was good for the next game.

Basic StatsTravis Kelce's Preseason Player Analysis

View TE Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Kelce caught 92 of 134 targets for 1,125 yards and 9 TDs last year.
  • He tied for the position lead in TDs, while ranking 2nd to Mark Andrews in targets, catches and yards.
  • Kelce finished 2nd to Andrews across fantasy scoring formats – but he was 58 PPR points and 44 non-PPR points ahead of the #3 TE.
  • Kelce has now finished as a top 2 fantasy TE in 6 straight seasons.
  • Among 35 TEs with 40+ targets last season, Kelce ranked 4th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade, 7th in yards per route run and 9th in yards per target.
  • But Kelce’s 8.4 yards per target was a career low. His 1.92 yards per route run was the 2nd lowest mark among 8 NFL seasons.
  • Kelce turns 33 in October.
  • The Chiefs traded WR Tyreek Hill to Miami in March.
    • Hill has averaged 8.3 targets per game over the past 5 seasons, including a career-high 9.4 last year.
  • The Chiefs also lost WRs Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson this offseason. Those 2 combined for 101 targets last season (15.0% of the team total).
  • Kansas City signed WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling and drafted WR Skyy Moore in Round 2 of this year’s draft. WR Mecole Hardman also returns.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Kelce turns 33 in October and averaged a career-low 8.4 yards per target last season. It’s safe to say he’s past his peak.

But he still ranked top 9 among 35 qualifying TEs in yards per target, yards per route and Pro Football Focus receiving grade last year. And, most importantly, he has a chance to set a career high in targets this season with WR Tyreek Hill gone.

Kelce easily projects as the #1 TE across scoring formats for 2022 and is worth considering near the end of the 1st round of fantasy drafts. He’s a strong pick anywhere in Round 2.
