Travis Kelce caught five of seven targets for just 46 yards in Sunday's 33-3 win at San Diego.
Kelce hasn't had big game since Week 1, as the Kansas City Chiefs like to run the ball and dink and dunk with Alex Smith. Kelce did appear to score a touchdown right before halftime, but the play was reversed via replay. While he's seen at least six targets in nine of 10 games this season, he's only seen more than seven looks three times. He's got the skill set and talent to be a dominant receiving tight end, but mainly because of the team's conservative offense, he's not getting opportunities down the field to make big plays. In any case, he and the Chiefs will host the Bills in Week 12.
Travis Kelce (groin) caught 5-of-9 targets for just 36 yards in Sunday's 29-13 win at Denver.
While Kelce was quiet Sunday, Alex Smith threw for just 204 yards, with 80 of those yards coming on a fourth-quarter touchdown to RB Charcandrick West. Kelce really hasn't made a major impact since Week 1, when he caught 6-of-6 targets for 106 yards and two touchdowns. He's not seeing a large number of targets either, with seven looks or less in six of nine games this season. Things do open up for Kansas City, however, with a string of soft passes defenses coming up on the schedule. Kelce could bounce back next week at San Diego, which has hasn't defended opposing TEs all that well this season.
Travis Kelce (groin) is active for Sunday's game in Denver, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
Kelce has landed on the injury report at times this season with a groin issue, but his game-day availability has never been in question. In Week 10, he'll seek to produce against a Broncos defense that has allowed three touchdowns to tight ends over the past three games.
Travis Kelce (groin) had six catches on eight targets for 49 yards -- all team-highs -- and a touchdown Sunday against the Lions in London.
The Kansas City Chiefs don't throw the ball a ton, but when they do, it's usually to either Kelce or wideout Jeremy Maclin. Kelce's touchdown was his first since Week 1, so while he gets a decent number of passes thrown his way for a tight end, his upside isn't quite as high due to the few looks near the end zone (seven red zone targets this season, two inside the 10-yard line). Fantasy owners will have to look for a Kelce replacement in Week 9, as the Chiefs are on bye before a tough Week 10 matchup against the Broncos.
Travis Kelce had five catches on six targets for a team-high 73 yards Sunday against the Steelers.
With No. 1 wideout Jeremy Maclin held out again because of a recent concussion, quarterback Alex Smith really spread the ball around, with seven different players getting targeted multiple times. Kelce is still the upside play in the Kansas City Chiefs ' passing game, but it's not a prolific unit, and the tight end has now gone six straight games without scoring a touchdown.
