Chiefs | Travis Kelce won't play in Pro Bowl

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 14:34:11 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) will not participate in the Pro Bowl due to a concussion he suffered in the playoffs. Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker has been named as Kelce's replacement.

Fantasy Tip: No surprise. Teams don't want their star players risking aggravation in a game that doesn't count for anything. Kelce has a concussion history, too, which makes the absence even more logical. He remains a candidate to be one of the first three tight ends selected in 2018 fantasy drafts.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce doing well

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 19:31:37 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) "probably would have been alright" for a playoff game this coming weekend had the Chiefs defeated the Tennessee Titans, head coach Andy Reid said Sunday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce turned in his second straight 1,000-yard campaign in 2017, and he has topped 800 yards in all four of his seasons in the league. He is no worse than the No. 2 fantasy tight end heading into 2018.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce solid before injury

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 17:36:29 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) caught all four of his targeted passes for 66 yards and a touchdown during the Wild Card game Saturday, Jan. 6, against the Tennessee Titans. Kelce would leave the game and enter concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce remains one of Kansas City's top offensive weapons, but keep an eye on the QB situation. It will take some time for Kelce to warm up to a new signal-caller if there is one. Still, pencil Kelce in as a TE1 for the offseason.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce suffers concussion

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 15:32:19 -0800

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) suffered a concussion during the Wild Card playoff game and has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce will need to pass the concussion tests before he is allowed to play again, so he will be considered questionable if the team advances in the playoffs. Owners will need to monitor Kelce's situation next week if the Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans.

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 15:10:41 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce finished with four receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown on a team-high tying eight targets in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce back at practice Friday

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 09:41:10 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (illness) returned to practice Friday, Dec. 22, after missing the previous two sessions with an illness.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce should be fine to play Week 16, and his matchup against the Miami Dolphins only makes him a player who is usually ranked inside the top three each week at his position an ever better play this week. Start him with confidence.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce out sick

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 13:44:16 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (illness) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming the illness isn't too serious, Kelce should be good to go this weekend. He's arguably the No. 1 tight end not named Rob Gronkowski in Week 16 in a great matchup with the Miami Dolphins.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce sitting Wednesday

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 11:02:00 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (illness) was absent from practice Wednesday, Dec. 20, due to an illness.

Fantasy Tip: One of the best things about Kelce is his durability - he has played in 62 consecutive games since missing his entire rookie season with a knee injury. He's a virtual lock to play and produce against one of the weakest defenses against tight ends in the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught six passes on seven targets for 46 yards in a 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers Saturday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: This was a mediocre game by Kelce's standards, but even his weaker outings are better than what most tight ends offer.

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 14:32:15 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught four passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce found the end zone for the first time in three weeks and now has seven touchdowns on the season. He will continue to have a big role in the passing game and is a No. 1 fantasy tight end against most opponents.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce held in check

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 14:55:17 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught three passes for 39 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce had a disappointing performance against the Bills and was targeted only four times during the game. He has posted at least 100 yards in two of the last four games and three touchdowns in the last five games. He is still one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a weekly starting option.

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:24:16 -0800

Chiefs | Travis Kelce has big game on MNF

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 22:03:02 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce registered seven receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 30, against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: The receiving yards were a season high for the monstrous tight end, and the touchdown was his fourth of the season. Kelce is unquestionably one of the most talented at his position in all of pro football, and he continues to prove it on a weekly basis. Just keep firing him up as your TE1 for those who are fortunate enough to have him on the roster.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce finds the end zone

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 22:28:35 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce had four catches for 33 yards and a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: It was the second straight game of less than 40 yards receiving for Kelce, but at least he managed to supplement his production with a touchdown this time. Next up is the Broncos, a team Kelce dominated to the tune of 19 receptions, 261 yards and a score in two games last season. Keep him plugged in as your starting TE.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce pulls down four balls

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 19:11:41 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce racked up four receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: The yardage total was Kelce's second-lowest mark of the season, and he has now failed to score touchdowns in back-to-back games for the first time. He'll get a chance to redeem himself to fantasy owners in Week 7 in a short week against the Raiders on Thursday night.

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 06:24:16 -0700

Houston Texans SS Marcus Gilchrist was fined $24,309 by the National Football League for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce in Week 5's game. Kelce sustained a concussion on the play and Gilchrist was given an unnecessary roughness penalty. Gilchrist is appealing the fine.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce practices fully again

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 10:42:14 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) was able practice fully for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Owners shouldn't consider themselves out of the woods yet, as Kelce's upgrade from no practice on Wednesday to a full practice Thursday is a dramatic jump for a player who supposedly suffered a concussion Sunday night. The increase of activity is a good thing, however. If he is active for Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers - and it appears he is trending in that direction - he should be started in all leagues.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce upgraded to full practice

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 15:39:24 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Oct. 12, one day after he did not participate at all.

Fantasy Tip: This is wonderful news for Kelce owners, as this basically assures he'll be out there on Sunday. It's also extra critical he's getting this full practice in because the Chiefs play in one of the late-afternoon contests. As usual, he'll bring TE1 value to the table and owners may be salivating over his potential in this one. In two matchups with Pittsburgh last year (including playoffs), Kelce reeled in 10 of 15 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown.

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 09:53:09 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) has advanced to the next level of the concussion protocol and will practice in limited fashion Thursday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce has caught 15 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown in the last two weeks. He's an elite option against the Pittsburgh Steelers if he's cleared.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce a no-go Wednesday

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 10:06:10 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) will not practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a good sign for his Week 6 availability, as some of the steps in the NFL's concussion protocol before getting cleared by an independent neurologist include light aerobic exercise, the introduction of strength training and a return to non-contact activities. There is no evidence yet to suggest Kelce is doing any of that yet, so owners should be prepared to start another tight end this week. A.J. Derby is one readily available option with a good matchup (New York Giants) who might fill the bill.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce being evaluated

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 19:50:12 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) left the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans in the second half due to a possible concussion. He went to the locker room to be evaluated.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce checked out in the first half, but returned briefly. However, he did not come out in the second half. If he is forced to miss time going forward Demetrius Harris might see a bump in targets.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce has big game Monday night

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 22:07:05 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce recorded a season-high 111 receiving yards on seven catches Monday, Oct. 2, versus the Washington Redskins. He also scored his second touchdown of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce has been widely regarded as one of the top tight ends in all of football for a couple of years now, and the soon-to-be 28-year-old just continues to back up that reputation. Even when quarterback Alex Smith inevitably regresses from his current peak, Kelce should still maintain above-average numbers, as he continues to serve as a dependable TE1 every week.

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.

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 17:57:44 -0700

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.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce works on side

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 17:32:50 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) worked out on the sidelines during practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce has been dealing with swelling in his knee for most of training camp, so the Chiefs are taking things slowly with him. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation but he has time to recover before the start of the season. Kelce is a No. 1 fantasy tight end if he can stay healthy this season.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Travis Kelce (knee) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce posted career highs with 85 grabs for 1,125 yards last season. The only thing that keeps him from the elite tier is he has just 14 touchdowns in three seasons. He's a very, very good TE1, but he'll need to see more pay dirt to take the next step.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce remains sidelined

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 13:40:53 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce is dealing with swelling in his knee, so he probably will not return until he is 100 percent. He was one of the best tight ends in the NFL last season and should continue to be a focal point in the Chiefs passing game in 2017. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce dealing with knee swelling

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 11:44:20 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) has dealt with knee swelling on occasion throughout training camp, although head coach Andy Reid believes he'll be fine because it only flares up "every once in a while."

Fantasy Tip: Kelce underwent a microfracture surgery as a rookie in 2013, so occasional swelling in that same knee shouldn't be considered too alarming, but it is noteworthy nonetheless. Unless the problem persists, however, Kelce can still be drafted as the second tight end overall in fantasy.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce healthy enough for camp

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 14:38:30 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) is ready for the start of training camp this week despite recovering from a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce is a game changer for the Chiefs, so it's vital that he's full go to start the season. He probably won't be pushed too hard in camp or during the preseason. Draft him as a top three tight end assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce should be ready for camp

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 11:42:10 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) has a "pretty good chance" of being ready for training camp, according to head coach Andy Reid. Kelce is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and it was originally believed that he would not be healthy enough for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce is the best tight end in the NFL not named Rob Gronkowski. What he lacks in touchdowns he makes up for in receptions and yards. As long as Kelce is at full health by the start of the season, he should be one of the first three tight ends drafted.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce not fully ready for camp

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 12:29:32 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) is not expected to be completely healthy before the start of training camp, although he may participate in some light activities, according to head coach Andy Reid. Kelce underwent shoulder surgery earlier this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs may take it easy with their star tight end so as to not risky any aggravation. If he avoids any setbacks along the way, he should be full go before the regular season commences. Kelce deserves to be one of the first three tight ends drafted in 2017 after being the top scoring fantasy tight end last season.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce to be ready for training camp

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 17:42:24 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) is expected to be "100 percent for training camp," according to general manager John Dorsey, who added that he is "ahead" from a rehabilitation standpoint.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce underwent shoulder surgery in February, but fortunately, it looks like that won't impede the star tight end going into the new season. As a result, owners shouldn't let that affect his status on draft day, as it appears Kelce can be selected with confidence in hopes of him providing top-five production at his position. He's worth the investment given his role in the offense.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce underwent surgery

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 14:24:19 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) recently underwent offseason shoulder surgery, according to head coach Andy Reid. Reid said he believes Kelce would miss some offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Kelce likely will not be on the field much this offseason but does not appear to be in danger of missing any playing time. He recorded 1,125 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2016 and should be a big part of the team's passing game next season. Kelce should be a weekly starting option for owners and probably will be one of the first tight ends selected in drafts.
