Chiefs TE Travis Kelce scores TD vs. Raiders Week 15


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) 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 | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) 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.


Chiefs' pass catchers post mediocre performances vs. Broncos


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led the team with just 36 receiving yards Sunday, catching all three of his targets in his team's 29-16 loss to the Broncos in Week 13.

It was a rough day all around for the Kansas City offense, which managed only 151 total yards despite scoring two touchdowns and a field goal. New addition Jason Avant followed Kelce on the leaderboard with 30 yards while catching two of his four targets. Tight end Anthony Fasano made his only reception count, hauling in a 20-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Nominal No. 1 receiver Dwayne Bowe only managed to catch two of his five targets for just 18 yards while wide receiver Donnie Avery caught one of his two targets for 20 yards.

The Chiefs passing attack will look to deliver a much stronger performance against the Cardinals in Week 14.


Chiefs TE Travis Kelce leads the way Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led the team in receiving Week 12 against the Raiders.

Kelce hauled in four passes for 67 yards. Alex Smith was his usual self, spreading the ball to nine different receivers, meaning Kelce led the team despite an underwhelming total. Kelce did have two of the biggest plays of the night for Kansas City. He hauled in a 21 yard pass and a 27 yard pass during the contest. Those were the second and third longest passing plays of the night for the Chiefs. 

Kelce will look for more Week 13 against the Broncos.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Kelce hauled in three passes for 37 yards. The Chiefs opted to run the ball during the contest, leading to just 16 passing attempts for Alex Smith. Kelce may have finished with the most receiving yards on the club, but did lose a fumble during the contest.

He'll look for more Week 12 against the Raiders. 


Travis Kelce does little yet again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) With Anthony Fasano sidelined by an injury, Fantasy owners had to have been excited about what Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce would do in Week 11 Seahawks against the  

Unfortunately, what he did amounted to very little, as Kelce finished with one of his worst performances of the season. He led the team with five targets and hauled in three of those passes for 37 yard, but undid any good with a lost fumble in the second quarter, leaving him with just 1 Fantasy point for the game.

Kelce has had trouble with consistency this season, especially since his streak of scoring games ended in Week 5. In five games since, he has reached double figures in Fantasy scoring just once, and is averaging just 4.2 Fantasy points per game during that stretch. His big-play ability is rare from the tight end position, but we're at the point where Kelce is a risky play each week. 


Jamaal Charles, Travis Kelce ready to go for Chiefs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Chiefs will have Jamaal Charles and Travis Kelce available Week 11 against the Seahawks. 

The news isn't really a surprise; both players were listed as probable heading into the game. The team will have all their probable players available for the contest. Tamba Hali, Josh Martin, Josh Mauga and Sean Smith are all active.

Cornerback Phillip Gaines, who came into the game listed as questionable, will attempt to play through his injuries.

Travis Kelce shows he's still a threat


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce hadn't done his Fantasy owners much good in recent weeks, going for less than 50 yards in three straight games and without a touchdown in two straight. But he showed why he's still one of the top 12 players at his position Week 9 against the Jets, catching four passes for 67 yards and a touchdown.

He demonstrated his big-play ability by getting open deep down the middle of the field for a 34-yard catch, and he demonstrated his red-zone prowess with a 12-yard score in the back of the end zone.

Tight ends with the ability to both stretch the field and get open in traffic are few and far between. If the Chiefs trusted Kelce as more than a pass-catcher, allowing him to spend more time on the field, he might be pushing top-five status.

Even in this muted form, he's still better than anything you'll find on waivers this time of year, so unless you have a clear stud at the position, Kelce deserves to start every week in Fantasy.


Chiefs TE Travis Kelce nets fourth TD during Week 9 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce scored for the first time in three games and totaled his fourth receiving touchdown of the season during a 24-10 win Week 9 against the Jets. Kelce finished with a team-high 67 yards on four catches.

Kelce gave Kansas City a 21-7 lead with a 12-yard touchdown catch with 39 seconds left in the second quarter. His longest catch went 34 yards and was targeted five times.

The Chiefs are back in action Week 10 at Buffalo.


Chiefs to have their studs Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Chiefs should have all their studs Week 9 against the Jets.

Offensive starters Jamaal Charles, Alex Smith and Travis Kelce headline the long list of probable players for the contest. All three should play.

The team also listed Eric Berry, Anthony Fasano, Phillip Gaines, Cyrus Gray, Junior Hemingway, Mike McGlynn and Sean Smith as probable for the contest. Berry is listed with an ankle injury. 


Chiefs TE Travis Kelce comes close to scoring touchdown Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce totaled four catches for 45 yards during a 34-7 win Week 8 vs. St. Louis. Kelce was targeted six times and his longest reception went 17 yards.

Kelce came close to an 18-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter. However, he was dragged down at the 1-yard line following a 17-yard reception. Kelce now doesn't have a touchdown in two straight games after scoring in three straight.

The Chiefs are back in action Week 9 vs. N.Y. Jets.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The Chiefs have labeled wide receiver Donnie Avery (groin) and cornerback Chris Owens (knee) out for Sunday's Week 8 clash against the Rams.

Chiefs TE Kelce limited Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was limited in practice Thursday, according to ESPN.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce catches four passes in Week 7 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in his team's 23-20 win over the Chargers in Week 7.

Kelce came into the week with touchdowns in three straight games but watched fullback Anthony Sherman grab the only passing touchdown of the day for Kansas City. It's Kelce's second straight game falling short of 10 yards per catch after crossing that mark in each of his first four performances. Kelce has tallied 24 receptions, 307 yards and three touchdowns. The Chiefs face the Rams in Week 8.


Travis Kelce scores for third straight week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Chiefs second-year tight end Travis Kelce found the end zone for the third straight game Week 5 at San Francisco. In the first quarter, Kelce took a quick screen 2 yards for the score. He caught two of three targets for 15 yards.

Kelce is on a bye Week 6.


Travis Kelce getting comfortable in the end zone


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) As long as Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce can keep finding the end zone, as he did for the third straight game in Week 5 against the 49ers, Fantasy owners will have nothing to worry about.

Kelce had a pretty ineffective game overall Sunday, finishing with just 15 yards on two catches. However, he racked up seven Fantasy points thanks to his third touchdown of the season. He now has 41 Fantasy points on the season, 18 of which have come thanks to his touchdowns.

Kelce is not totally dependent on finding the end zone for Fantasy relevance, but is the difference between him being a solid Fantasy option and a must-start one. He is on pace for nine-plus touchdowns this season, a total only 11 tight ends have topped in one of their first two seasons. At this point, you cannot take Kelce out of your lineup, but he might be in line for some ugly lines if he is kept out of the end zone. 


Taking a look at the tight end waiver wire


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) With key players like Vernon Davis (back), Niles Paul (concussion), Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Tyler Eifert (elbow) dealing with injuries, finding help on the waiver wire might be the key to success at the tight end position. Here are some of Jamey Eisenberg's thoughts on the best pickups for this week.

Larry Donnell of the Giants and Travis Kelce are likely to be the most-added tight ends when waivers run Wednesday morning, and Jamey admits to being "torn" on which he prefers. Dwayne Allen of the Colts, Garrett Graham of the Texans and Reed round out the top-five, while Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, Clay Harbor and Jace Amaro are sleeper adds for deep leagues.

Charles Clay of the Dolphins and Ladarius Green of the Chargers are considered drop-worthy, if you need a roster spot. 


Still some questions for Travis Kelce


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/30/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who caught the attention of Fantasy owners with his big-play ability in the preseason and showed flashes of it through the first three weeks, finally turned in the performance everyone was hoping to see Week 4 against New England, emerging as quarterback Alex Smith's favorite target after playing just a peripheral role in the passing game earlier in the year.

Is it validation that Kelce is a starting-caliber tight end in Fantasy? I'd say so. He now has two games with 80-plus receiving yards and two touchdowns in a span of four weeks, making him the eighth-best tight end in standard CBSSports.com scoring. That says a lot right there.

But is he so good that you should feel comfortable shopping Jimmy Graham if you happen to own both? I'm not ready to make that leap. For one thing, the Chiefs passing game isn't the most stable in the league. A different player has led the team in targets each week. For another, Kelce doesn't see the field all that much -- at least not like we're used to seeing from the league's top tight ends. He played only 52 percent of the team's snaps Monday, down from 65 percent in Week 3. He played less than 40 percent of their snaps each of the first two weeks.

Because the Chiefs are lacking a standout wide receiver, I believe that number is more likely to rise than fall going forward. But until we see that it is rising consistently, Kelce remains a solid but not especially high-end starter at tight end.


Travis Kelce unstoppable on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce dominated the Patriots on Monday Night Football, catching eight passes for 93 yards and a touchdown while running through several tackles. Kelce drew a team-high nine targets and set career highs in catches and receiving yards.
