Fantasy Spin: Kelce came up big in a tough Week 2 matchup with the Chargers, leading the club in both targets and receptions. He's an elite talent at the position and a weekly TE1.
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce proved on Sunday why hes talked about as the best at his position. The big tight end was the number one target of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and put together a strong line of nine receptions, 90 yards and a touchdown versus the Chargers on 14 targets. In a powerful offense with numerous weapons, Kelce seems to be the one constant that managers could count on every week to produce results. Kelce will draw the Ravens in a Week 3 battle and should always be started by managers.
Despite being arguably the best tight end option in the league, Travis Kelce has generally struggled versus the Chargers. Kelce will go up against the Chargers on Sunday, but has never eclipsed the 100 yard mark and only owns one touchdown in his 12 career games against the division rival. Kelce hauled in all six targets in Week 1 and chipped in a touchdown to go along with 50 yards. The Chargers have held the tight end standout to just 41 yards per game throughout his career and owners in DFS should take notice as this may not be the best week to start the All-Pro. Managers in weekly leagues should still roll out one of the games best at his position, but shouldnt expect the huge numbers he is capable of in Week 2.
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce had six receptions for 50 yards and a touchdown against the Houston Texans on Thursday, Sept. 10.
Fantasy Spin: Kelce was active early, catching all six of his passes before halftime, including Kansas City's first touchdown of the season. He wasn't even targeted in the second half, however, which led to a disappointing 50 yards receiving -- a total he failed to surpass just twice in 16 games last year. Despite a slow start by his high standards, Kelce remains a must-play TE1.
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had five grabs for 60 yards and a touchdown on Thursday night against the Texans. Kelce had a strong first half, but the Texans Defense adjusted to him in the second half. The leagues top tight end still had a solid evening and should continue to do so as the season goes on. Part of the most explosive offense in the game, managers should feel confident treating the games top tight end at WR1/WR2 status. The tight end will face off against the Chargers on Sunday a team that he put up 126 yards against with a touchdown and 10 receptions in 2019.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (knee) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice after being limited on Monday. Kelce was never in doubt to miss Thursday's season opener against the Houston Texans, but it is nice to see him back to complete health.

He has been the top fantasy TE in PPR formats for the past three seasons and shows no signs of slowing down in the Chiefs potent offense. He is a must-start option in Week 1 against a Texans Defense that he torched in the 2019 AFC Divisional Round.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has been working with quarterback Patrick Mahomes--among others--despite team facilities being unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even without the extra work, the veteran was still positioned to be one of the first tight ends off fantasy boards for the 2020 campaign. Kelce finished 2019 with 97 catches for 1,229 yards.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has gained at least 15 yards on 100 plays since 2017 - 31 more than any other tight end over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has caught no fewer than 83.5 percent of his catchable targets over the last five seasons, and quarterbacks have recorded a passer rating no worse than 105.8 over that stretch. In 2019, he hauled in 84.3 percent of his 115 catchable targets and his quarterbacks recorded a 112.2 passer rating when targeting him.
San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle has compiled two of the three best seasons for a tight end in terms of producing yards after the catch since at least 2015 over the last two years. His 871 receiving yards after the catch in 2018 are the most by any player over the last five seasons (and 208 more yards than second-place Travis Kelce compiled in 2016), while his 623 receiving yards after the catch in 2019 led all tight ends and trailed only Chris Godwin (629) among all players last season.

Fantasy Spin: Kelce has been named to five straight Pro Bowls and he has recorded at least 1,000 receiving yards in each of the last four seasons while missing just one game. He suffered some touchdown regression in 2019, but he'll remain a target and yardage monster and needs to be either the first or second TE off the board in all formats.
Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has caught 17 touchdowns in the red zone since the start of the 2017 season - the second-highest total by a tight end over that span.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy owners don't need much convincing to draft Kelce, but averaging right around six scores inside the 20 over the course of three seasons is a nice nudge nonetheless. With Kansas City adding Clyde Edwards-Helaire to an already potent offense that taxes defenses vertically, it's entirely possible Kelce could push for 100-plus catches and double-digit touchdowns for the second time in three years after settling for five in 2019.
