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.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes threw for 423 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT in Sunday's win at San Francisco. WR JuJu Smith-Schuster and TE Travis Kelce tied for the target lead with 8.

Dynasty Write-up
Kelce has a chance to end his career with the Chiefs; he’s currently under contract through the 2025 season. Tied to Patrick Mahomes, the only real dilemma here is Kelce's age (33 in October). We'll also see how defenses adjust to an offense that no longer features Tyreek Hill.
