  • Travis Kelce Finds End Zone In Week 12

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Rams. He was targeted a team-high eight times. Kelce has now caught 12 touchdowns this season, but this game also saw him finish with his fewest yards since Week 5. But if 57 yards and a score is someone's worst game this month, that really just speaks to how important Kelce is in fantasy. The gap between him and the rest of the tight ends in the league is immense.

  • Travis Kelce Remains Top Fantasy Tight End Play In Week 12

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught three touchdowns last week against the Chargers, bringing his total this season to 11, which has already tied his career high. After personnel changes in the offseason, Kelce is now the unquestioned top option in this Chiefs offense, and he's averaging 9.4 targets per game. Kelce is a must-start regardless of matchup, though it's worth pointing out that the Rams allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends this year.

  • Travis Kelce Hauls In Three Touchdowns

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught all three of quarterback Patrick Mahomes' touchdown passes on Sunday night against the Chargers, including the game-winner in the final minute of the contest. Overall, Kelce was targeted 10 times, catching six passes for 115 yards. At this point, there's not much to say about Kelce: he's the best tight end in the NFL and fantasy managers who spent an early pick on him are being rewarded with the best positional advantage in fantasy football.

  • Travis Kelce Remains Top Fantasy Tight End Play In Week 11

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had his worst game of the season in Week 2 against the Chargers, catching five passes for 51 yards. It's the only time this season that Kelce has failed to either record 98 receiving yards or a touchdown. But if 10.1 points in full PPR is his floor, then there's zero reason to think that Kelce isn't the top fantasy tight end heading into Sunday's rematch with the Chargers. Sure, the matchup is bad and the Chargers have allowed just one touchdown to a tight end all year, but Kelce's not your average tight end.

  • Travis Kelce Finds End Zone Again In Week 10

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce got back in the end zone for the first time since Week 5 in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, catching six of his seven targets for 81 yards and a score. There's really not a lot to say about Kelce at this point that isn't obvious: he's the most reliable tight end in fantasy football while also having the highest ceiling of any tight end. If he's on your roster, you're starting him every week with confidence. If he's not, you're hoping that your opponent doesn't have him on their roster.

  • Travis Kelce Remains Top Fantasy Tight End Play In Week 10

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has been the best fantasy tight end this season and is coming off a game in Week 9 in which he was targeted 17 times. Don't expect 17 targets against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10, but Kelce's had at least 98 yards or a touchdown in all but one game this season, so there's no reason to think he won't finish as a top-five fantasy tight end again this season. He's KC's best offensive weapon and a must-start every week. The Jaguars do allow the 10th-fewest fantasy points per game to the tight end position, but...this is Travis Kelce, so we can essentially ignore that fact.

  • Travis Kelce Posts Strong Numbers On Sunday Night

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce continues to be the best tight end in fantasy football. On Sunday night against the Titans, Kelce was targeted 17 times as the Chiefs took to the air for most of the game. He hauled in 10 of those for 106 yards. Kelce is KC's best offensive weapon and is a reliable way for the Chiefs to move the chains in the short and medium passing game. He's the TE1 going forward and there's not really a conversation about anyone threatening him for that role.

  • Travis Kelce Is The Top Fantasy Tight End Option For Week 9

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has been the best tight end in fantasy this season and there's no reason to think that changes on Sunday against a Titans team that allows the 10th-most fantasy points to tight ends this season. Kelce has either 98 or more yards or at least one touchdown in all but one game this season, and he's finished as a top four fantasy tight end every week except for Week 2, his worst game when he was still the overall TE13.

  • Travis Kelce Finishes Just Shy Of 100 Yards

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce came up just two yards shy of finishing with 100 yards on National Tight Ends Day, catching six of his eight targets for 98 yards. This was only the second time this season that Kelce didn't have either 100 yards or a touchdown, though he almost had both, with a touchdown reception called back by penalty. Kelce is the best tight end in fantasy, but his managers will need to find another option next week to get them through KC's bye.

  • Travis Kelce An Elite Fantasy Option For Week 7

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has either 100 yards or a touchdown in all but one game this season and has been one of two tight ends to consistently post top five numbers this season. Heading into Week 7's game against the 49ers, Kelce should be considered a matchup-proof top play. He has at least seven targets in every game and hasn't gone consecutive weeks without a touchdown yet. The 49ers allow the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position, but Kelce's got too big of a role for that to really concern fantasy managers much. Maybe you hedge against it by not playing him in DFS, but he's a top two play every week in season-long.

  • Chiefs Restructure Travis Kelce's Contract

    The Kansas City Chiefs restructured All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce's contract on Tuesday, converting his base salary into a signing bonus to clear $3.455 million in salary cap space, according to a source. Kelce had his second 100-yard game of the season in the Week 6 loss to the Buffalo Bills and he's scored seven times already in six games played. In half-point PPR scoring on Yahoo, he's the No. 1 fantasy tight end so far in the season. The 33-year-old went off for fantasy managers in Week 5 with four touchdowns, and he remains a must-start in all fantasy lineups as the best tight end in football. He'll be facing the San Francisco 49ers in Week 7.

  • Travis Kelce Catches Eight Passes Against Buffalo

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was targeted 10 times in Sunday's loss to the Bills, catching eight passes for 108 yards. He also had a long reception called back by a questionable offensive pass interference call. This was only the second time this season that Kelce failed to score a touchdown, but it was also his first 100-yard game since Week 1. He finds a way to excel every week, which is why Kelce is the No. 1 overall tight end in fantasy football and should be considered matchup proof. His "worst" game of the season still saw him finish with over 50 receiving yards.

  • Travis Kelce Remains Top Fantasy Tight End Play Against Bills

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is facing a tougher matchup than usual against the Bills on Sunday, as the team has allowed the fourth-fewest passing yards per game in the NFL. Despite that, fantasy managers should continue to trust Kelce as the No. 1 overall play at the tight end position, especially after he caught four touchdowns last week. His 25 yards were a season low, but that doesn't really matter too much when four of your seven catches go for scores. Kelce now has seven touchdowns through the first five games of the season.

  • Travis Kelce Catches Four Touchdowns

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce tied a team record with four touchdown receptions in Monday's win over the Raiders. He only ended up with 25 receiving yards in the game as most of his targets were in the red zone, but the four touchdowns kind of help fantasy managers ignore the low yardage total. Kelce's eight targets tied for the team lead and his seven receptions led the Chiefs. He remains the overall TE1.

  • Travis Kelce Should Be Top Play In Week 5

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce should be considered a top tight end option for Monday night's contest against the Raiders. The only downside for fantasy is that the game is on Monday, limiting him from being in the player pool for a lot of DFS contests/ Kelce has finished with over 100 yards receiving in three of his last four games against the Raiders and has seen at least seven targets every game this season. He's found the end zone three times already.

  • Travis Kelce Gets Going Early

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught a 16-yard touchdown on the second play from scrimmage in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, setting the tone early for how his day would go. Kelce led the Chiefs in targets with 10, hauling in nine of them for 92 yards. Kelce is the No. 1 target in one of the NFL's best offenses and should be consider the overall TE1 in fantasy.

  • Travis Kelce - Week 4 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce hasn't been as dominant this season as he has in the past, but he remains one of the top tight ends in the NFL and in fantasy football. Kelce has been targeted at least seven times in each game and he's found the end zone twice already, plus has a two-point conversion. While this meeting with the Buccaneers is scary, fantasy managers should start Kelce with confidence because of his key role in this offense.

  • Travis Kelce Catches Touchdown In Week 3

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught four passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Indianapolis Colts. His eight targets were tied for the team lead. Kelce has now been targeted at least seven times in each game and has two touchdown receptions this season. He doesn't necessarily look as dominant as he's been in the past, but his high volume still makes him a top fantasy tight end.

  • Travis Kelce's Week 3 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was relatively quiet last week, catching five passes for 51 yards against the Chargers. But the fact that that represents a "quiet" day for Kelce is proof of why he's the top tight end in fantasy football. Kelce serves as the No. 1 pass-catching weapon on this high-powered Chiefs offense and now faces a Colts defense that allowed Evan Engram to catch seven passes last week. Kelce remains a must-start in season long and is worth paying up for in DFS.

  • Travis Kelce Catches Five Passes

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led the Chiefs in targets, receptions and yards in Thursday's win over the Chargers, but all of those numbers were lower than fantasy managers expect from Kelce. In the 27-24 win, Kelce was targeted seven times, catching five passes for 51 yards. He won't face this Chargers defense every week, so consider Kelce to still be the top tight end in fantasy football going forward.

  • Travis Kelce In Good Spot For Week 2

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce remains a must-start fantasy tight end heading into Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Kelce was targeted nine times last week, catching eight of them for 121 yards and a touchdown. Kelce is quarterback Patrick Mahomes' top weapon this season and we should expect Mahomes to look Kelce's way a lot on Thursday night. Kelce went over 100 yards in both of his games against the Chargers last season.

  • Travis Kelce Week 1 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce faces a tough matchup this week against an Arizona Cardinals defense that allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends last season. Kelce's talent and target share still makes him a top five tight end this week in season-long fantasy leagues though, so don't overthink the matchup in that format. This could be a time to avoid him in DFS contests if you want to play it safe, but with Tyreek Hill gone, Kelce should be the No. 1 option in one of the NFL's best offenses.
