Chiefs | Travis Kelce leaves practice

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:23:05 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (leg) left practice early Monday, Aug. 31, because of a right leg injury. Kelce was able to walk off the field but did not return to practice.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for an update on Kelce's status over the next day or two. Kelce is expected to be one of the top targets in the team's offense this season and could be a No. 1 tight end in leagues.

Chiefs | KC wants a bigger Travis Kelce

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 14:47:00 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce played at roughly 250 pounds in 2014, but head coach Andy Reid wants Kelce to report bigger in 2015, and Reid thinks Kelce can pack on an extra 15 pounds without losing any of his speed or quickness. Kelce led the team in catches (67) and receiving yards (862) last season.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce wasn't fully healthy last year following a knee injury in 2013. He is a fine receiving tight end that might have some targets taken away with the addition of Jeremy Maclin, but he'll make for a decent low-end TE1 in traditional formats.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce studying Gonzo

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 11:09:39 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has been studying former NFL TE Tony Gonzalez's game tape to creatively find ways to improve Kelce's game, focusing on the fundamentals in relation to instinctual play.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce recently reminded the public that he was not at 100% health in 2014 after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in November of 2013. The addition of WR Jeremy Maclin could cut into his work, but Kelce is a downfield threat in an offense that features the tight end position. Expect respectable numbers that place him in the TE1 conversation, but his best value will be found on FantasyScore given his erratic nature in season-long formats.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce to have bigger role

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 14:36:05 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce, who led the team with 67 catches and 862 receiving yards in 2014, is expected to be a more prominent part of the passing offense in 2015 after the team released TE Anthony Fasano Thursday, Feb. 26. Kelce was in the lineup for roughly 65% of the snaps last year. However, the Chiefs were most effective with three tight ends in the lineup last year, so they may shop for another tight end in the draft of in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on whether KC adds another tight end for the rotation, Kelce could be a low-end TE1 with considerable upside, especially if the Chiefs make some notable wide receiving additions to take some attention away from Kelce.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce practices Monday

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 20:51:40 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ribs, shoulder) was a full participant in practice Monday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce heads into Week 12 with a team-high four touchdown receptions, and he ranks second on the team in receiving yards. Kansas City's modest passing attack doesn't help his numbers, but the matchup against Oakland is as good as it gets. Kelce could be worth a flier if you are looking to save money at the tight end position at FantasyScore.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce grasps playbook better

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 07:13:06 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce is ready for a bigger workload after his package was limited earlier in the season due to his playbook knowledge, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce ($5,600; 11.2% of your cap) is still a bit risky on FantasyScore due to his inconsistent performance. However, this news sheds hope on his value moving forward.
