Weekly Writeup
Kelce has only fallen short of 6 catches in a game once this year. He could become even more important if Tyreek Hill misses Sunday's game.

Week 5
Kelce caught 6 of 10 targets for 57 yards and 1 TD in the Chiefs' Week 5 loss to the Bills.
Kelce caught just 6 balls in a game in which QB Patrick Mahomes threw it 50+ times. Kelce struggled to make his appearance felt as the Bills jammed him at the line and threw multiple defenders at him.
Kelce got behind the defense on their first drive of the game and was wide open for a 75-yard TD but Mahomes overthrew him.
The Chiefs did not look right in Week 5 but should bounce back in a big way in Week 6 against Washington.
Week 2
The guy is an unstoppable force every single week.

The Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes find ways to get the ball in Kelce's hands as often as possible. One reason why, he makes incredible plays in the open field. He took a short pass on a scramble drill for a 46-yard TD in the 3rd quarter, breaking multiple tackles on the play in one of the more impressive plays of the young season. Kelce tied for the team lead in targets in this game with 8. He finished the night with 7 catches for 109 yards and the terrific catch-and-run TD.

We have Kelce ranked as the overall TE1 against the Chargers this week and overall TE1 the rest of the way. Kelce has scored a TD in 7 of his last 8 games.

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.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce suffered a "stinger" on a hard hit late in Sunday night's loss to the Bills, HC Andy Reid told reporters after the game. That's a generally minor injury to the neck/shoulder area. We'll watch Kelce's status this week but don't expect his availability to be threatened for a Week 6 trip to Washington, barring some change in the diagnosis.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce returned to practice on Monday. He missed 4 days with what the team called back and hip tightness. We'll keep an eye on him, but consider Kelce's fantasy stock unaffected.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce left Thursday's practice with what the team is calling back and hip tightness. That doesn't sound like a long-term issue, but we'll certainly keep an eye on the 1st-round fantasy pick.

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.
