Chiefs | Travis Kelce almost blanked in win

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:36:20 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce posted just one catch for one yard on his only target in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: There was no word of any kind of injury for Kelce, it just appears the Chargers did a good job of taking him out of the game and forcing Alex Smith to go elsewhere. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce over 100 yards receiving in Week 2

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:07:16 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 103 yards and scored a go-ahead touchdown on a 15-yard catch as the Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-20, on Sunday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce only missed two of his targets, suggesting a solid day for the tight end. He appears to have strong rapport with QB Alex Smith in the Chiefs offense, and that's a big chunk of what you need. Kelce remains a strong TE1 option.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce backs Alex Smith

Sat, 09 Sep 2017 19:37:09 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce endorsed QB Alex Smith as the starting quarterback. "He's my quarterback," Kelce said. "I'll take him every single day of the week, no matter what."

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a monster game against the Patriots in Week 1, but fantasy owners shouldn't overreact. He is still more of a game manager than a playmaker, and he remains a QB2.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce quiet in Week 1

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 21:52:46 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce was held to 40 yards on five receptions against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 7. He added a four-yard carry.

Fantasy Tip: Most of Kelce's meager contributions came on shovel passes, but it's nothing to worry about long term. Bill Belichick's gameplan is always to take away an opponent's top weapon, and Kelce had six performances of fewer than 40 yards in 2016 when he finished with 1,125 receiving yards. Stay the course.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce the focus of the Patriots

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 11:20:49 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce will be the focus of the New England Patriots' defense Thursday, Sept. 7. SS Patrick Chung is expected to cover Kelce for the majority of the game, but there are packages designed to give Chung help with Kelce.

Fantasy Tip: Successfully limiting Kelce would create more opportunities for Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley in the passing game. The bottom line is that the only Chiefs that should be in starting lineups tonight are Kelce, who is still comfortably in TE1 territory, Hill and Kareem Hunt.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (calf) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce will have a big role in the passing game against the New England Patriots this week and should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce remains limited

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 12:57:44 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (calf) was limited in practice Tuesday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce should take the field Thursday night as long as there aren't any setbacks leading up to then. The fifth-year tight end is due for a big season, especially with Jeremy Maclin out of town. He's a weekly start unless injured.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce limited Monday

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 15:06:59 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (calf) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce missed time during the preseason because of the injury but appears to be on track to play in Week 1. He is one of the more productive tight ends in the NFL and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce returns to practice

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 08:46:18 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce was back at practice Sunday, Aug. 13, after missing the team's preseason opener with knee soreness.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce underwent a microfracture surgery on his knee as a rookie in 2013 and occasionally deals with some swelling, so there is no cause for alarm here. The fourth-year pro is perhaps the safest choice at tight end in fantasy, but his upside will continue to be limited as long as the Chiefs continue to not make him a priority in the red zone. Still, he is a solid choice in the fourth round of most fantasy drafts.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce remains out

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 06:06:02 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) remains out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce has been dealing with swelling in his knee, but it doesn't appear serious yet. He set career highs with 85 grabs for 1,125 yards last season. The only thing that keeps him from the elite tier is his 14 touchdowns in three seasons. He's a very good TE1, but he'll need to see more pay dirt to take the next step.
