Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Kelce set career highs across the board last year with 105 catches, 1,416 yards and 11 TDs. (And he did it in 15 games, sitting out the meaningless regular-season finale.)
  • He scored 32 more PPR points and 34 more non-PPR points than any other TE.
  • Kelce provided a lofty weekly floor, scoring as a top-12 TE in 13 of 15 games.
  • And he brought plenty of ceiling, scoring at a top-2 level 9 times. Darren Waller did it 5 times, and no other TE more than 3.
  • Kelce has led TEs in PPR and non-PPR points in 3 straight seasons. The 2 years prior, he ranked top 2 across scoring formats.
  • Kelce turns 32 in October but has obviously shown no signs of decline. In fact, his 2.49 yards per route run last season was a career high.
  • He hasn’t missed a single game due to injury since 2014 -- although he did sustain 2 concussions during the 2017 season.
  • He returns to the same offense with the same (elite) QB in 2021.
  • Kelce even has a shot to top last year’s 24.7% target share after the Chiefs parted ways with WR Sammy Watkins this offseason and only added 5th-round rookie WR Cornell Powell.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Kelce has led all TEs in fantasy points in 3 straight seasons and ranked top 2 in 5 straight. Despite going on 32, he’s shown zero signs of decline.

Back with QB Patrick Mahomes and HC Andy Reid for another year, Kelce is 1 of the safest picks in fantasy football and worth consideration in the middle of Round 1.

The Chiefs and TE Travis Kelce have agreed to a 4-year extension -- just hours after TE George Kittle got a new deal from the 49ers. Kelce is reportedly getting about $14 million per year, which trails the $15 million Kittle received. That makes sense considering Kittle is 26 while Kelce is 30. Of course, Kelce has still led all TEs in fantasy points in 4 straight seasons. He's now tied to the Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes through the 2025 campaign.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is active for today's game against the Texans. He was limited in practice all week, but the knee issue doesn't sound like something that will be a big factor today.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans after a limited week of practice. HC Andy Reid said Friday that Kelce's injury is "more of a bruise than anything." Unless we hear otherwise, we're expecting him to be available for his usual role on Sunday.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's dealing with a "sore knee," according to ESPN's Adam Teicher. "Shouldn't keep him out of Sunday's game but something to watch," Teicher adds. We'll see what Kelce does in Thursday's practice.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has been medically cleared for the start of training camp. He was sidelined this spring after early-offseason ankle surgery, but it never sounded like something that would impact his 2019 campaign. Kelce is locked in as the #1 TE in fantasy football and is worth considering at the tail end of Round 1.
