Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Tops century mark in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught 10 of 15 targets for 133 yards during Kansas City's 31-9 loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

Kelce led the Chiefs in both targets and yards Sunday, and he capped the postseason with three straight games over 100 receiving yards. Still, as the Chiefs' offensive line (sans both starting tackles) proved unable to match Tampa Bay's pass rush and protect an already-hobbled Patrick Mahomes, Kelce's ability to move the chains wasn't enough to keep the offense competitive. The normally sure handed tight end also dropped a potentially game-changing third-down pass in the first half. Still, Kelce is coming off a season in which he set the all-time tight end yardage record (1,416) while also scoring a career-high 11 touchdowns, and he's now logged three straight campaigns with over 1,200 receiving yards. He's locked in as the unquestioned top tight end for 2021 fantasy drafts, assuming there are no questions about Mahomes' health after he undergoes offseason toe surgery, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports is expected. The only question will be whether Kelce warrants a first-round selection.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Posts two more TDs against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce secured 13 of his 15 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 38-24 win against the Bills in the AFC Championship Game.

Kelce evidently has Buffalo's number, as he does most every team in the NFL, with his only other multi-TD performance of the season coming Week 6 against the Bills. It was a seemingly favorable matchup, with Buffalo surrendering an NFL-worst 92 receptions to opposing tight ends during the regular season. Kelce predictably cashed in. The three-time All-Pro enjoyed a ludicrous start to the playoff rematch, setting a Chiefs franchise postseason record with nine first-half receptions Sunday. Heading into a Super Bowl matchup against the Buccaneers on Sunday, Feb. 7, Kelce carries a streak of six consecutive outings with 10-plus targets and at least one TD catch.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Tops 100 yards with a TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught eight of 11 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Browns in the AFC divisional round.

Kelce scored from 20 yards out early in the second quarter as the Chiefs controlled the game early, but the momentum shifted after quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a concussion in the third quarter. The tight end continued to be effective with Chad Henne under center, making catches of five and 24 yards. Even if Mahomes is unable to play against the Bills in next week's AFC Championship Game, Kelce should still thrive against a Buffalo defense that has struggled to defend tight ends all season.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Ready to play Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce doesn't appear on the injury report the Chiefs released Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Kelce was held out of the Chiefs' regular-season finale against the Chargers for rest purposes and benefited from Kansas City having a first-round bye in the postseason, so he should have the benefit of fresh legs heading into the team's playoff opener Sunday versus the Browns. Top wideout Tyreek Hill, who dealt with a hamstring injury back in December, is also off the Chiefs' injury report. Patrick Mahomes will thus have his full assortment of pass catching weapons available for the divisional round.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: May be rested Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though Kelce is not among Kansas City's Week 17 inactives, per Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star, ESPN's Adam Teicher relays that he hasn't seen the tight end in uniform during warmups.

In addition to five players previously ruled out due to injuries, Kansas City elected to deem QB Patrick Mahomes and safety Tyrann Mathieu inactive Sunday. However, with the team having clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed and a first-round bye, Teope notes that it would be surprising if a number of key players such as Kelce, who were not listed as inactive Sunday, saw extended action in the contest. Teicher's report suggests that Kelce may be rested as a precaution, along with Mahomes. In such a scenario, added Week 17 tight end snaps would be available for Nick Keizer and Deon Yelder.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: May rest in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce is a candidate to be rested in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers after dealing with some nagging injuries in recent weeks, Dave Skretta of the Associated Press reports.

Kelce isn't listed on the Chiefs' Week 17 injury report and would likely play without any restrictions in a normal scenario, but Kansas City has already locked up the AFC's No. 1 seed, and head coach Andy Reid has stated that he plans to give rest to key players, including quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Though Reid hasn't detailed his plans for Kelce specifically, the star tight end and wideout Tyreek Hill (hamstring) are both likely to have minimal roles if active Week 17, as the Chiefs look to preserve the health of their top two playmakers heading into the postseason. Assuming that's the case, Kelce -- who ranks second in the league with 1,416 receiving yards on the season -- will likely fall short in his bid to become the first tight end to lead the NFL in receiving yardage.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Sets receiving record for position
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce secured seven of 13 targets for 98 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 17-14 win against the Falcons.

Kelce made NFL history Sunday, surpassing George Kittle's 2018 record for tight end receiving yards in a single season (1,377). With his Week 16 output, the six-time Pro Bowler pushes his season-long total to 1,416 yards, also leaping back ahead of Green Bay's Robert Tonyan for the TE league lead with his 11th TD catch of the year Sunday. Kelce has amassed double-digit targets in seven of his past eight games, but there's a possibility he's held out for a Week 17 matchup against the Chargers, given that Kansas City has already locked up the AFC's No. 1 seed.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Finds end zone in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught eight of 12 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 32-29 win over the Saints.

He took a shovel pass from Patrick Mahomes for a one-yard score early in the second quarter, giving Kelce a TD in three straight games and tying his career high with 10 on the year. He's also closing in on history, as Kelce needs only 60 more receiving yards next week against the Falcons to break George Kittle's single-season NFL record for a tight end of 1,377.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Continues stellar stretch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught eight of 10 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-27 win over Miami.

Kelce's six-yard touchdown with 37 seconds left in the first half put the Chiefs up 14-10, and they proceeded to pull away with 16 unanswered points in the third quarter. The star tight end replicated his stat line from last week, and such performances have become the new normal for Kelce. He has caught at least eight passes in each of his last six games, topping 100 yards in five of those and finding the end zone in four. Kelce will look to keep rolling in Week 15 against the Saints.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Dominates in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce racked up 138 receiving yards and a touchdown on eight receptions (13 targets) in Sunday's 22-16 win over the Broncos.

The Chiefs were uncharacteristically poor in the red zone, but Kelce was able to cash in on Patrick Mahomes' lone touchdown heave. The star tight end blew by the 1,000-yard marker for the fifth year in a row, and he is on pace to finish with double-digit touchdowns (eight through 12 games) for just the second time in his storied career. The 31-year-old continues to be one of the most consistent fantasy assets in the game with Mahomes under center, averaging numbers worthy of a WR1 with 6.8 receptions and 93.0 yards per game. Next Sunday's opponent, the Miami Dolphins, rank eighth against opposing tight ends, but the Broncos ranked ninth heading into Sunday's contest before Kelce annihilated them, confirming his matchup-proof status heading into Week 14.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Strong production in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce brought in all eight targets for 82 yards in the Chiefs' 27-24 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

The veteran was a distant second to Tyreek Hill in receptions, receiving yards and targets, but his numbers were nevertheless solid from a fantasy perspective. Kelce's yardage tally Sunday left him just short of the 1,000-yard mark for the campaign, a threshold that, once eclipsed, will render the 31-year-old the first tight end in NFL history to accomplish the feat in five consecutive seasons. Kelce now has at least eight grabs in four straight games, a streak he'll look to extend at the expense of the Broncos in a Week 13 divisional battle.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Catches game-winning score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce hauled in eight passes (10 targets ) for 127 yards and a touchdown Sunday. He also completed his lone pass attempt on a trick play for four yards in a 35-31 win over Las Vegas.

Kelce feasted between the hashes against the Raiders' safeties, consistently getting open down the field as Patrick Mahomes scrambled to buy time behind the line before connecting with his favorite target. The 31-year-old has been on an absolute tear of late, averaging 9.3 receptions and 139.7 yards with two total touchdowns over his last three contests. With George Kittle (foot) missing the majority of the season, Kelce has reclaimed his spot alone atop the fantasy tight-end summit. Next week's opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, boasts a pair of athletic coverage linebackers patrolling the middle of the field, but Kelce is a must-start player regardless of matchup.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Spectacular numbers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce secured 10 of 12 targets for 159 yards in the Chiefs' 33-31 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Kelce paced the team in receptions and receiving yards in a performance highlighted by a 44-yard grab, his second-longest catch of the campaign. The Panthers came into the contest with solid numbers against tight ends, but Kelce's elite athleticism, which has now helped him to three 100-yard efforts in the last five games, clearly overcame any statistical disadvantage. Now having seen 12 targets in back-to-back contests, Kelce will look to improve on Sunday's season-best effort against the vulnerable Raiders defense in a Week 11 AFC West battle.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Leading receiver in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught eight of 12 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-9 win over the Jets.

Kelce's three-yard touchdown put the Chiefs up 21-9 with 58 seconds left in the first half, and he led the Chiefs in targets, catches and receiving yards as Patrick Mahomes piled up 416 yards and five touchdowns through the air. The league's most dependable receiving option at the tight end position has 48 catches for 610 yards and six touchdowns through eight games, putting Kelce on pace to eclipse 1,200 receiving yards for a third consecutive season. He'll face the Panthers in Week 9.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Quiet outing against Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught all three of his targets for 31 receiving yards during Sunday's 43-16 win against Denver.

The five-time Pro Bowler was proving to be the surest tight end in fantasy through the first six weeks of 2020, as he had amassed 70 receiving yards or recorded a touchdown in all six of his appearances entering Sunday. Kelce had three TDs in his preceding two games coming into the divisional tilt, but Kansas City tallied only one passing TD on 25 attempts during the drubbing of Denver. Tyreek Hill dominated the passing-game workload with 10 targets, while no other Chief exceeded four. Despite the quiet outing from Kelce, he remains a top option given his talent, the offense he is working within and his healthy workload of eight targets per game. Kelce now heads into a Week 8 matchup against a Jets defense that surrendered 64 receiving yards to Buffalo tight end Tyler Kroft on Sunday.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Catches two touchdowns in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught five of seven targets for 65 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's 26-17 win over the Bills. He also lost a fumble prior to halftime.

Kelce got Kansas City on the board with an 11-yard reception toward the end of the first quarter, then found pay dirt from 12 yards out toward the end of the second. While those plays brought Kelce's touchdown total to five through six games, the tight end committed his first turnover of the season Monday, coughing the ball up just before halftime. That miscue surely bothers Kelce, but with at least five catches and/or 70 receiving yards in every game this season, he remains in great form ahead of Sunday's trip to play the Broncos.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Paces pass catchers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce brought in eight of 12 targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' 40-32 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

The All-Pro tight end led the Chiefs in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the afternoon, and his seven-yard touchdown grab with 3:57 remaining gave Kansas City some fleeting hope. Kelce's 100-yard effort was his first of the season, and he's now logged double-digit targets on two occasions over the first five games. Kelce will look to stay hot in a Week 6 Monday evening road matchup versus the Bills.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Tops team in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught three of six targets for 70 yards in Monday night's 26-10 win over the Patriots.

Kelce again led Kansas City in receiving yards, with the bulk of his total coming on a 45-yard grab during the second half. That play was the Chiefs' longest of the game and helped compensate for Kelce posting a season low in catches. Nonetheless, with at least 70 yards and/or a touchdown in all four outings this season, Kelce is in fine form ahead of Week 5's game against the Raiders.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Leads team through air
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught six of seven targets for 87 yards in Monday night's 34-20 win over the Ravens.

Kelce led the Chiefs in receiving yards while going for a season-long gain of 29 yards during Monday's contest. Although he couldn't continue his touchdown streak to start the season, instead seeing teammates Anthony Sherman and Eric Fisher vulture close-range scores through the air, Kelce still caught six passes for the third straight game and topped 85 yards for the second in a row. Up next for the highly touted tight end is a matchup against the Patriots in Week 4.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Scores TD on nine receptions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelce caught nine of 14 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Chargers.

Kelce led the team in targets and catches while finishing behind only Tyreek Hill in receiving yards. He got the Chiefs on the board with a 10-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, giving him two scores in as many games to start the season. The star tight end also has 140 yards and 15 receptions to his name already, so he should remain locked into fantasy lineups despite a seemingly difficult matchup against the Ravens next Monday night.
