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.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce idle Monday

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 07:34:23 -0700

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.
