Travis Kelce scores first career touchdown Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce came down with his first career touchdown in Week 3 against Miami.

Kelce caught a short pass from Alex Smith and took it 20 yards for a score in the second quarter. He was targeted four times and finished with three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown in a 34-15 victory. He has 10 catches for 166 yards and a touchdown through three games.

The Chiefs will host the Patriots in Week 3.


Travis Kelce leads the way for Chiefs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led the team in receiving Week 2.

Kelce hauled in four passes for 81 yards. He was targeted six times during the contest. Kelce proved to be a big-play threat. His shortest reception went for 17 yards. Kelce was not a threat in the red zone, as the team opted to run with Knile Davis when they got close to the end zone.

Kelce will look for more Week 3 against the Dolphins. 


Reid: Travis Kelce can play more than 18 snaps


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce played just 18 snaps in Week 1's loss to the Titans Sunday, a total coach Andy Reid admitted may have been too low Monday.

"He’s capable of playing more than 18 plays," Reid told The Kansas City Star Monday.

Kelce was productive when he was on the field, hauling in three of five passes thrown his way for 49 yards. He could see an increased role moving forward. 


Travis Kelce records first catches of NFL career


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce hauled in the first catches of his NFL career during a 26-10 loss Week 1 against the Titans.

Kelce, who appeared in just one game in 2013, hauled in his first career catch on a 27-yard gain in the second quarter. He almost had his first career touchdown in the fourth quarter, but quarterback Alex Smith overthrew him in the end zone on what would have been a 10-yard completion.

Kelce finished with three catches for 49 yards. He was targeted five times. The Chiefs are back in action Week 2 at Denver.


Is Travis Kelce ready to live up to the hype?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) For a player that appeared in just one game as a rookie and had no catches in 2013, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is owned in more Fantasy leagues than players that had a bigger impact last season. Well, that's in large part due to the preseason Kelce put together and the hope that he could be a breakout Fantasy option in 2014.

Kelce led the Chiefs with 11 catches for 193 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason. He is technically listed as the second-string tight end behind Anthony Fasano on the Chiefs' depth chart, but Kelce is being considered as the impact offensive player at tight end for Kansas City.

The Chiefs' Week 1 opponent will be the Titans, who allowed tight ends to average 8.0 Fantasy points per week in 2013. Tight ends also averaged 57.7 receiving yards and totaled eight touchdowns in 16 games.

With wide receiver Dwayne Bowe sidelined Week 1 due to a suspension, this is an ideal time for Kelce to step up in the passing game and show his preseason numbers aren't a fluke. Still, Kelce is more of a sleeper Fantasy start Week 1.


Andy Reid: Travis Kelce 'sure has a nice skill level'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has looked like a breakout player through two preseason games. He's caught six of seven targets for 136 yards and two touchdowns while displaying unusual speed for a 6-5, 260-pounder.

Coach Andy Reid allowed that Kelce "did a nice job" Sunday night against the Panthers.

"I do like what he’s doing," Reid told the team's website. "He’s just got to keep coming with it and there’s more than just the route running. You got to be able to run-block and then you got to detail all your work there. But, you sure got to give him credit for the effort that he’s giving in the pass game and he sure has a nice skill level."


Travis Kelce scores second TD of preseason


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce scored his second preseason touchdown Sunday night at Carolina.

Kelce caught a deep pass from rookie Aaron Murray and took it 43 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. He saw all of his work in the second half and finished with a team-high 63 yards and a touchdown on four receptions. He has six catches for 136 yards and two touchdowns on seven targets, averaging 22.7 yards per grab through two preseason games.

Travis Kelce returns to practice Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce returned to practice Monday after missing Sunday's session with a sore knee, ESPN.com reports.

Travis Kelce moving well without knee brace


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who missed virtually his entire rookie season with a knee injury, went through a full practice Monday for the first time in nearly a year, reports ESPN.com. Kelce "moved around well and did so without a brace or any other kind of protection on the knee," the report said.

"From here, it’s just a matter of getting back into football shape and getting ready to play a 16-game season," Kelce said.

The 6-5, 260-pounder "figures large" in the Chiefs' plans for getting more production out of the tight end position, the website said.


Reid expects Travis Kelce for training camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/13/2014) Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said Friday that he expects second-year tight end Travis Kelce to be ready for the start of training camp. In fact, Reid thinks they might "be able to get a little bit out of Kelce" next week.

Kelce missed his rookie year after undergoing microfracture surgery on his knee. He'll compete for playing time once he's on the field. 


Travis Kelce should be ready for training camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Thursday that second-year tight end Travis Kelce, who missed his rookie year after having microfracture surgery on his knee, should be ready for training camp.

"Yeah. He's getting close," Reid said. "He's been working his tail off."

Kelce has the chance to push Anthony Fasano for the starting job this season if healthy.


Chiefs tight ends on brink of breakout?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Chiefs general manager John Dorsey believes second-year tight end Travis Kelce will emerge this season. Kelce missed most of last season with a microfracture procedure on his knee. 

"[T]he emergence of a Travis Kelce being able to stretch the field as a tight end, hopefully that weapon adds another element to the passing game," Dorsey told TheMMQB.com. "We took some nicks at the tight end position last year."

But he's not the only one. Chiefs coach Andy Reid spotlighted second-year tight end and former hoops player Demetrius Harris as a potential contributor this year. 

"I'll tell you, he's a football player right now," Reid said when asked if he was still a basketball player. "I think this camp was great for him. I thought he played exceptionally well. He's so big and he's worked so stinking hard in the weight room, he's been living in there with Barry (Rubin) this offseason and you can tell. You can see he's gotten stronger."

Harris is 6-foot-7 and 230 pounds -- perhaps more following his offseason workouts. 


Travis Kelce 'progressing well' with knee


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Monday that second-year tight end Travis Kelce is "progressing well" from last year's microfracture surgery on his knee and "doing everything," reports the Kansas City Star.

Kelce missed his entire rookie season after undergoing surgery in October. He had 45 catches for 722 yards and eight touchdowns in his final season at the University of Cincinnati and is expected to play a big role in the passing game for the Chiefs this year.


Travis Kelce to be Chiefs' pass-catching tight end


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Anthony Fasano is the Chiefs' starting tight end, but second-year pro Travis Kelce will be "their pass receiver at tight end" and "an important piece" in the passing game, reports ESPN.com. Kelce missed all of last season following microfracture surgery but is expected to be ready for OTAs.

The Chiefs got only 53 catches from tight ends last year.


Expectations still high for Travis Kelce


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2014) Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, a third-round pick last year, saw his rookie season wiped out by a knee injury. If he can stay healthy, he should get lots of playing time in 2014, reports ESPN.com.

The website notes Kelce is a "move" tight end who showed in training camp that "he could get down the field to make catches more like a wide receiver than a tight end." Kansas City also has tight ends Anthony Fasano and Sean McGrath, but "neither is the versatile receiving threat Kelce could be."

Kelce caught 45 balls for 722 yards and eight touchdowns in his last season at the University of Cincinnati.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Sean McGrath in; Anthony Fasano, Travis Kelce out


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Fasano is missing his third straight game. Kelce is missing his fifth straight.
