2019 RTSports Outlook

Kelce was the top ranked fantasy tight end for the second straight season. He set more career highs last year, having 103 receptions for 1,336 yards and 10 touchdowns. His numbers looked more like an elite receiver than a tight end. He had five 100-yard games and two double-digit reception games. Kelce had at least five receptions all but the first game of the season. He will continue to be a huge part of this offense for years to come. Kelce has at least 67 receptions and 850 yards every season in the NFL and three straight 1,000-yard seasons. Kelce is a big target with speed, athleticism and plus hands. He also is a good blocker. He really is a complete package at tight end. Kelce is an improving route runner in the prime of his career.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Kelce is our top rated fantasy tight end. It might be hard to see him repeating last year but it could happen. He will get a ton of targets and hit the 1,000-yard mark once again. He can get around 95 receptions for 1,200 yards and double-digit scores. He is worth an early-round pick for fantasy teams.

RotoBaller's Outlook

With Rob Gronkowski finally off to his long-rumored retirement, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is ready to begin his reign as the NFLs undisputed best tight end. In 2018, Kelce posted his third consecutive 1000-yard season, finishing with a career-high 1,336 yards and grabbing 10 touchdowns. With second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes taking over the starting duties for the Chiefs last year, the teams offense exploded, and Kelce was a key beneficiary of that explosion. Kelce gives the Chiefs a big target in the red zone, as evidenced by the 24 red zone targets he received last year, which he converted into nine red zone touchdowns. With plenty of questions about the other options in the Chiefs receiving corps, Kelce should be Mahomes top target this season, putting him in line to finish as the overall TE1 in fantasy. Hes finished first or second at his position in three straight years and has shown no signs of slowing down, and even if the Chiefs offense isnt quite as explosive in Mahomes second year as a starter, Kelces going to see enough targets to be worth his ADP. He should be the first tight end taken in all redraft leagues.

Player Notes
Aug 19 5:50pm ET

Kelce caught just one pass for five yards against the Steelers in week two of the preseason. The slippery field conditions limited the Chiefs starters to just one drive, so we didnt get much of a taste. Kelce remains the top TE in fantasy and should be getting drafted in the first round.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (ankle) didn't participate in the team's offseason team activities, but Kelce is expected to be a full go for training camp. Kelce has three-straight 1000 yard receiving seasons to his name and caught 10 touchdowns last year in Kansas City's prolific offense. He's set to be the first tight end off the board in all fantasy drafts this year, and for now it appears that the ankle injury shouldn't factor into any fantasy decisions that you make.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) reported to camp Tuesday, July 23, after he was held out of organized team activities and minicamp following offseason ankle surgery. Kelce is in camp three days early so he can get some extra work in before the rest of the team reports on Friday, July 26.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (ankle) has missed all of the team's offseason workouts as he recovers from ankle surgery, but he expects to be 100 percent healthy in time for training camp. Kelce is one of a kind at the tight end position and should be the first name off the board at the position in fantasy drafts despite his ankle injury. The 29-year-old caught a career-high 103 passes (150 targets) for 1,336 yards and 10 touchdowns last year and has superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes throwing him passes. Kelce has now gone over 1,000 yards receiving in three straight seasons. He's pretty good.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (ankle) has been sitting out of organized team activities and is unlikely to take part in mandatory minicamp next week, according to head coach Andy Reid. I dont think (hell participate) next week, Reid said. I think youll probably see him in training camp. Kelce had a cleanup procedure on his ankle in April and wore a protective boot a few weeks afterwards. He should be ready to go in Week 1 and should be one of the first tight ends off the board after setting a franchise record with 103 catches, 1,336 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2018. He was named a first-team All-Pro for the second time in his career.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle), who underwent ankle surgery at the end of last season, has yet to be cleared to return to practice and has no timetable for when he may be able to return to the field.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who had offseason ankle surgery, is out of his walking boot and is working out, but he doesn't know what his timetable will be for a return to the field. He's mostly rehabbing and getting treatment right now. Kelce has plenty of time to get ready for the upcoming season, but the team might be cautious with him and hold him out of some offseason workouts. The 29-year-old has three straight seasons of 1,000-plus yards and scored a career-high 103 receptions and 10 touchdowns last year. With Patrick Mahomes throwing him passes, Kelce is an elite TE1.

The Kansas City Chiefs signed free-agent tight end Blake Bell to an undisclosed deal on Tuesday. The former fourth-round pick in 2015 had eight receptions for 67 yards and no scores in 10 games with the Jaguars in 2018. He has all of 30 catches for 357 yards and no touchdowns in his four years in the NFL. Bell will compete for No. 2 duties behind Travis Kelce in his new home.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) recently underwent ankle surgery and will miss at least some of the offseason workouts, according to sources. Kelce is expected to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Spin: Kelce is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and does not appear to be in any danger of missing the start of the regular season. He likely will be the first or second tight end selected in all fantasy drafts next season.
