Chiefs TE Travis Kelce catches four passes in Week 7 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in his team's 23-20 win over the Chargers in Week 7.

Kelce came into the week with touchdowns in three straight games but watched fullback Anthony Sherman grab the only passing touchdown of the day for Kansas City. It's Kelce's second straight game falling short of 10 yards per catch after crossing that mark in each of his first four performances. Kelce has tallied 24 receptions, 307 yards and three touchdowns. The Chiefs face the Rams in Week 8.

Chiefs second-year tight end Travis Kelce found the end zone for the third straight game Week 5 at San Francisco. In the first quarter, Kelce took a quick screen 2 yards for the score. He caught two of three targets for 15 yards.

Kelce is on a bye Week 6.

Travis Kelce getting comfortable in the end zone
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

As long as Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce can keep finding the end zone, as he did for the third straight game in Week 5 against the 49ers, Fantasy owners will have nothing to worry about.

Kelce had a pretty ineffective game overall Sunday, finishing with just 15 yards on two catches. However, he racked up seven Fantasy points thanks to his third touchdown of the season. He now has 41 Fantasy points on the season, 18 of which have come thanks to his touchdowns.

Kelce is not totally dependent on finding the end zone for Fantasy relevance, but is the difference between him being a solid Fantasy option and a must-start one. He is on pace for nine-plus touchdowns this season, a total only 11 tight ends have topped in one of their first two seasons. At this point, you cannot take Kelce out of your lineup, but he might be in line for some ugly lines if he is kept out of the end zone.

Taking a look at the tight end waiver wire
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With key players like Vernon Davis (back), Niles Paul (concussion), Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Tyler Eifert (elbow) dealing with injuries, finding help on the waiver wire might be the key to success at the tight end position. Here are some of Jamey Eisenberg's thoughts on the best pickups for this week.

Larry Donnell of the Giants and Travis Kelce are likely to be the most-added tight ends when waivers run Wednesday morning, and Jamey admits to being "torn" on which he prefers. Dwayne Allen of the Colts, Garrett Graham of the Texans and Reed round out the top-five, while Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, Clay Harbor and Jace Amaro are sleeper adds for deep leagues.

Charles Clay of the Dolphins and Ladarius Green of the Chargers are considered drop-worthy, if you need a roster spot.

Still some questions for Travis Kelce
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who caught the attention of Fantasy owners with his big-play ability in the preseason and showed flashes of it through the first three weeks, finally turned in the performance everyone was hoping to see Week 4 against New England, emerging as quarterback Alex Smith's favorite target after playing just a peripheral role in the passing game earlier in the year.

Is it validation that Kelce is a starting-caliber tight end in Fantasy? I'd say so. He now has two games with 80-plus receiving yards and two touchdowns in a span of four weeks, making him the eighth-best tight end in standard CBSSports.com scoring. That says a lot right there.

But is he so good that you should feel comfortable shopping Jimmy Graham if you happen to own both? I'm not ready to make that leap. For one thing, the Chiefs passing game isn't the most stable in the league. A different player has led the team in targets each week. For another, Kelce doesn't see the field all that much -- at least not like we're used to seeing from the league's top tight ends. He played only 52 percent of the team's snaps Monday, down from 65 percent in Week 3. He played less than 40 percent of their snaps each of the first two weeks.

Because the Chiefs are lacking a standout wide receiver, I believe that number is more likely to rise than fall going forward. But until we see that it is rising consistently, Kelce remains a solid but not especially high-end starter at tight end.
