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.
Kelce, whose long gainer went 33 yards, scored on a 2-yard reception in the fourth quarter. He's up to 18 catches, 259 yards and two touchdowns. Kelce visits the 49ers in Week 5.
Davis will try to test out his ankle before the game, so we should know his status around 90 minutes before their 4:25 pm EST kickoff. If you have a Davis replacement ready to slide into the lineup, make sure it is someone set to play at 4:00 pm EST or later.
Some options to consider might be
Kelce played just 50 snaps in the team's first two games, but was on the field 47 times on offense in Week 3, 65 percent of the team's plays. He turned that into just three catches for 36 yards, but made up for it with a touchdown, and should get more looks moving forward.
Kelce has a tough matchup on the way in Week 4, as the Chiefs get set to take on the Patriots this Sunday. New England has allowed just 4.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, the third-lowest total in the league. Kelce might not pay immediate dividends as a waiver-wire pickup this week, but his growing role should lead to good things before long.
