I would say it helps his value. If defenses are forced to worry about Tyreek busting a big one over the top, they can't defend the middle of the field as well. If Tyreek wasn't there, defens

The first thing I look at when drafting players is reFPOEPT, second I go with rcFETDPGs.

Chiefs signed TE Travis Kelce to a four-year extension through 2025. 

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the deal is worth "more than $14 million" per season and includes "just under" $25 million in guarantees. Kelce still had two years remaining on his previous deal. He had been set to make $8 million in 2020. It's less money than George Kittle received earlier Thursday, but this is 31-year-old Kelce's third contract. Aging well and staying healthy, Kelce has cleared 1,000 yards each of the past four seasons, eclipsing 1,200 twice. He and Kittle remain in their own tier atop the tight end ranks.

great

Everything I’ve found say it’s nothing.  I’ve owned him the last 3 years and he has labels like this a lot.  Never turns into anything.  My guess is just some rest prior to Thursday’s game.

Travis Kelce (knee) was limited in Monday's practice.

Kelce was limited a bunch of times last season before playing every week, so we're not concerned at all here. Kelce is the top tight end play on the board for Week 1 against a Texans defense he set ablaze for 4-58-0 and 10-134-3 in two matchups last year.

As the blurb says, it's probably nothing, but you certainly don't like to see Kelce already limited with no game action to speak of yet.

He did this all last year I think. It’s just veteran respect at this point more than anything. They know what kind of prep he needs to play his best. He probably spent the day getting all kinds of massages and other therapy to prepare his body.

Yep.

He's fine.

Travis Kelce (knee) is not listed on the injury report for Thursday night's Week 1 opener against the Texans.

He's good to go after being limited Monday before returning to full work Tuesday and Wednesday. Kelce is the premier tight end play of the week after shredding the Texans in their last matchup.

Travis Kelce caught all six of his targets for 50 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 1 win over the Texans.

Patrick Mahomes threw the ball just 11 times after the half with the Chiefs spanking the Texans, and Kelce wasn't targeted on any of those throws after leading the team in targets over the first 30 minutes. He made the most of his looks and got the scoring started for Kansas City with a six-yard touchdown grab. One of the two premier tight ends in fantasy, Kelce gets the Chargers in Week 2. He went 7-92-1 and 3-24-0 on 15 targets in two games against the Bolts last season.

Travis Kelce caught 9-of-14 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 2 overtime win over the Chargers.

Kelce led the Chiefs in targets and was the most consistent chain mover. He carved up the Chargers' zone defense underneath, constantly finding soft spots for first downs. Kelce also won in the end zone after clowning a defender with a slow-developing route. The Chiefs' high-powered offense and Kelce's elite receiving ability put him on track for a monster season. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Kelce within the all-time top-10 fantasy leaderboards at tight end at the end of 2020. He's returning second-round value and more already. Kelce will be fantasy's No. 1 tight end heading into Week 3 against the Ravens. It could be the best regular season matchup of the year.

Travis Kelce caught 6-of-7 targets for 87 yards in the Chiefs' Week 3 win over the Ravens.

Kelce led the Chiefs in receiving and was second on the team in targets, trailing Sammy Watkins' eight. Kelce just wasn't part of the fun in the end zone, failing to catch any of Patrick Mahomes' four touchdowns. Kelce has at least 87 yards or a touchdown in each of the first three games and gets a difficult Week 4 draw against the Patriots.

He’s good.

Doesn't it seem like Mahomes could throw it over the middle to him all day if they felt like it? I think they only run other plays to keep Kelce fresh.

I remember drafting him his rookie year because Sigmund Bloom was all excited about him in preseason - damn that was a good call. Not quite as good as getting Kamara as a rookie, but fun nevertheless.

I think Mahomes could pass it to whoever he wants, whenever he wants.  Guy is a joy to watch.  That toss to Hill in the EZ was nuts.

Travis Kelce caught 3-of-6 targets for 70 yards in Kansas City's Week 4 win over the Patriots.

Much like how New England bracketed and shutout Darren Waller in Week 3, Bill Belichick turned his attention to suffocating Kelce Monday night. It was a terrific gameplan until the 31-year-old exploded for a 50-yard catch to move the Chiefs into red zone territory in the third quarter. No matter the opposing defense's gameplan, there is no safer option for fantasy at the position than Kelce. He'll be ranked as a TE1 against Las Vegas in Week 5.

Travis Kelce caught 5-of-7 targets for 65 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 6 win over the Bills.

Kelce now has five scores on the year, tied for first in the entire league. He did cough up a crucial fumble before halftime that cost Kansas City a shot at a field goal. It also gave Tyler Bass a chance at putting three points on the board for Buffalo but he couldn't connect. Kelce led the Chiefs in targets and outside of a single fumble, had another tremendous outing. Being the top receiving option for Patrick Mahomes gives him a higher weekly touchdown projection than any other tight end. He remains in contention with George Kittle for the title of TE1 overall in fantasy.

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-12 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 9 win over the Jets. 

Coming off a 3/31 clunker in a Week 7 game where the Chiefs' defense and special teams dominated the Broncos, Kelce took advantage of a golden matchup to have his best overall game of the season. The yards were a new 2020 high, while the catches were only one short. Kelce's score was a three-yarder where Patrick Mahomes attempted a softball-type pass near the goal line. With half the year in the books, ageless Kelce is on pace for a typically monstrous 96/1,220/12. He gets the Panthers in Week 9 before the Chiefs' late-season bye.

So true. I've owned him his entire career in dynasty. Thinking about what it'd be like to not start him every week makes me sad.

Hopefully he can keep trucking for another two years of his typical elite production and hang on for one or two more of start-able production. It seems possible with Mahomes locked in for the rest of his playing days.

Week 11 Dynasty Risers and Fallers: D'Andre Swift has arrived

Excerpt:

Quote

RISER: TE TRAVIS KELCE, KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

With Kelce on a bye and George Kittle likely out for the season, the highest-scoring tight ends last week were Rob Gronkowski and Mark Andrews with a whopping 13.1 points each. Despite dealing with injuries throughout the year, Kittle averaged 16.4 PPR points per game. Kelce was in a class of his own at 18.8, and Waller was the bridge to mediocrity at 13.1. No other tight end is even at 12 points per game. 

Having a stud tight end is a supreme advantage that is difficult to replicate at other positions. Just looking at this year, Kelce has a 20.5% best ball win rate. Surprisingly, Logan Thomas is at an 18.5% win rate and no one else is above 12%.

PFF @PFF

Most catches without a drop:

1. Keenan Allen - 65

2. Allen Robinson II - 63

3. Davante Adams - 61

4. Travis Kelce - 58

https://twitter.com/pff/status/1329073398832537612?s=21

Kelce having more value than all other tight ends in redraft and dynasty is obvious, but what his success overshadows is the failure of other tight ends. Dynasty players should be actively shopping middling tight ends with name-value like Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry. Their paths to seeing extreme target volume are non-existent, and they offer little more than Thomas or Jimmy Graham. Keep taking shots on potential studs like Noah Fant or T.J. Hockenson, but don’t be afraid to bail on tight ends who are doomed to live in the TE4-15 range.

Travis Kelce caught all eight of his targets for 82 yards in the Chiefs' Week 12 win over the Bucs.

Patrick Mahomes threw for 462 yards and three scores in this one, but Tyreek Hill was the recipient of 269 of those yards and all three scores. Kelce was the Chiefs' second-leading receiver and second on the team in targets. The most consistent week-to-week tight end in the business, Kelce will be the overall TE1 next week against the Broncos. Kelce had just 3-31 on three targets against Denver in Week 7.

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-13 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's Week 13 win over the Broncos.

Kelce went over 1,000 yards for the fifth straight season. It was also his fifth 100-yard game of the year. The Broncos secondary didn't have an answer for Kelce, who scored the only touchdown of the night. Kelce has been on fire with at least eight catches in the last four games.  He'll remain the overall TE1 for a in Week 14 matchup with Miami.

Travis Kelce needs 127 yards over the season's final three weeks to break the single-season tight end receiving yardage mark. 

Kelce, who leads the NFL in receiving yards, will break George Kittle's 2018 record of 1,377 receiving yards barring an injury. Kelce has shredded opposing secondaries this season, eclipsing 80 yards in nine games and going over 100 yards five times. On Sunday against Miami, Kelce caught eight balls for 126 yards and a score. Kelce leads the NFL in receptions of more than 20 yards. He could be the biggest advantage in all of fantasy football. We'll see him drafted in the first half of the first round in all fantasy formats next year.

Travis Kelce caught 8-of-12 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 15 win against the Saints. 

Kelce once again led KC in targets, catching a short touchdown on a weird push-toss from Patrick Mahomes in the first half. He benefited from the Saints refusing to allow Mahomes anything downfield. Kelce is now 59 yards away from setting the single-season tight end receiving yardage record held by George Kittle. We'd say he has a fair shot at the record in Week 16 against the Falcons' terrible coverage unit.

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-13 targets for 98 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 16 win over the Falcons. 

The 98 yards bring Kelce to 1,416 on the season, breaking George Kittle's single-season tight end record by 39. Kelce's 11th touchdown was his fourth in as many games, and fifth in six. Each of Kelce's 105 receptions, 1,416 yards (obviously) and 11 touchdowns are new career bests. He might not get the chance to improve upon those totals in Week 17, as the 14-1 Chiefs have clinched home-field advantage in the playoffs. If Kelce sees the field against the Chargers, it shouldn't be for more than a series or two.

Travis Kelce caught 13-of-15 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' AFC Championship win over the Bills.

Kelce was targeted on 39.5% of Patrick Mahomes' 38 attempts in this one and caught the quarterback's second and third scores of the night, producing one- and five-yard touchdowns. The first was an underhand flip from Mahomes at the goal line and the second a wide-open lob to the tight end in the end zone. Kelce's 15 targets were his most in a game this season, and this was his eighth 100-yard game of the year. Kelce has now scored in six straight games and gets a date with the Bucs in the Super Bowl. When these teams met in Week 12, Kelce caught all eight of his targets for 82 scoreless yards.

Travis Kelce caught 10-of-15 targets for 133 yards in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LV loss to the Bucs. 

Kelce was one of the only Chiefs to show up in a dismal loss. Fresh off setting the single-season tight end yardage record, Kelce cleared the 100-yard mark in all three postseason appearances. Getting better every season, Kelce’s career-high 1,416 yards broke George Kittle's previous tight end record by 39. This, in a campaign where he sat out Week 17 as a healthy scratch. The No. 1 pass catcher for the most dangerous quarterback in football, Kelce has reached 1,200 yards receiving in each of Patrick Mahomes’ three seasons as starter. Kelce is older than you would imagine, turning 32 in October, but there has yet to be even a hint of drop-off in his game. There is no one to reasonably challenge him at the top of tight end draft boards in 2021.
