Expectations rising for Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) After a breakout 2014 season, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is looking to build on his success.
Kelce caught 67 passes for 862 yards and five touchdowns a year ago and figures to be even more of an integral part of Kansas City's offense.
As a result, Kelce wants to raise the bar and set a higher standard for his personal output this season.
“Nobody puts more expectation on me than myself," Kelce said, via ESPN.com. “That’s just the heart of the competitor. That’s how I was raised. My father taught me that you can buy a man’s back, but you can’t buy his heart. With that being said, I come out here and make sure I put all my effort and focus into being the best player I can be."
Chiefs have high expectations for TE Travis Kelce
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Although Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led the team in receiving in 2014, head coach Andy Reid has even higher expectations for him in 2015, according to the Kansas City Star.
Reid believes that the best is yet to come for Kelce.
“You’d think the natural progression would be even more and better, and he was pretty good last year,” Reid said. “He’s tremendously talented, loves to play the game. He’s like a little kid out there. He loves to play.”
Despite the high praise from Reid, the coach knows that there is still room for improvement for the 25-year-old.
“You could see the progress every week in a positive direction,” Reid said. “We kept adding to his menu there, so the plays we wanted to dial up in formations and motions, the running backs and tight ends, they have to know what they’re doing with those. So he continually got better with that as time went on."
After recording no stats as a rookie due to being placed on injured reserve, Kelce tallied 67 receptions for 862 yards and five touchdowns in 2014, all were team-highs.
TE Travis Kelce feels he's way ahead of last year
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(3/17/15) Tight end Travis Kelce led the Chiefs with 67 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns last season. He's expecting bigger things in 2015 thanks to a healthy offseason.
“Last year, it was a month before (training camp before I could) finally start running routes,” Kelce told the Kansas City Star, referring to the left knee injury that essentially wiped out his rookie season in 2013. “You can only learn so much in the meeting room before you actually have to go out there and do your job.
“This year, I’ve got an entire season under my belt. I’m much more confident, much more durable in terms of my health. It’s going to be fun to play in front of this KC crowd.”
The Chiefs released veteran tight end Anthony Fasano, who caught 25 passes for 226 yards and four touchdowns last year, so Kelce could be an every-down player this fall.
“(Coach Andy) Reid always says next man up," Kelce told the paper. "I was drafted in the third round two years ago to be a tight end in this offense. No matter what happens I’ll be ready, whether I’m the main guy on every single play or a side (option) that helps us get the ball down the field.”
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce scores TD vs. Raiders Week 15
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught five of his six targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in his team's 31-13 win over the Raiders in Week 15.
Kelce's touchdown was his first since Week 9 and came on a 20-yard play where the tight end lined up wide right and caught a short cross over the middle of the field, bouncing off multiple defenders en route to the end zone. He also lost a fumble for the second straight game and now has three lost fumbles in his last five games. Nevertheless, Kelce is up to 56 receptions, 747 yards and five touchdowns going into a Week 16 matchup with the Steelers.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce posts first 100-yard game
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(12/7/14) Chiefs second-year tight end Travis Kelce caught seven of nine targets for 110 yards in the Week 14 loss at Arizona, his first 100-yard game. Kelce's performance was marred by the fact he lost a fumble following his last grab.
Kelce, who hasn't scored since Week 9, paced Kansas City in targets. His longest gainer went 29 yards. He'll play the Raiders in Week 15.
|We hope Travis Kelce improves as expected in his third season because he could emerge as a top three tight end this year. He had a great first year in the NFL with 67 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns in 2014 (he missed his rookie year with a knee injury), which made him the No. 9 Fantasy tight end in standard leagues. But he played limited snaps early in the year, and his playing time should increase dramatically this season. He played nearly 90 percent of the snaps in the final seven weeks, and he had three games with at least eight Fantasy points over that span. Kelce could get a few more red-zone looks with Anthony Fasano gone, and we hope Alex Smith will put Kelce in more positions to succeed this year. He's worth drafting after Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham, and he will likely come off the board in Round 4 or 5 in the majority of leagues. Kelce is a great breakout candidate this season.
