    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught four passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Kelce found the end zone for the first time in three weeks and now has seven touchdowns on the season. He will continue to have a big role in the passing game and is a No. 1 fantasy tight end against most opponents.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 2:55pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught three passes for 39 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Kelce had a disappointing performance against the Bills and was targeted only four times during the game. He has posted at least 100 yards in two of the last four games and three touchdowns in the last five games. He is still one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a weekly starting option.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 2:24pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 109 yards against the New York Giants in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has posted at least 100 yards in two of his last three games and has 22 catches in his last three games. He is one of the best tight end in the NFL and is a must-start option each week.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 8:23pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce finished with seven catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has now scored in three straight games, and he is challenging Rob Gronkowski for the title of top fantasy tight end.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 10:03pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce registered seven receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 game Monday, Oct. 30, against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: The receiving yards were a season high for the monstrous tight end, and the touchdown was his fourth of the season. Kelce is unquestionably one of the most talented at his position in all of pro football, and he continues to prove it on a weekly basis. Just keep firing him up as your TE1 for those who are fortunate enough to have him on the roster.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 10:28pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce had four catches for 33 yards and a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: It was the second straight game of less than 40 yards receiving for Kelce, but at least he managed to supplement his production with a touchdown this time. Next up is the Broncos, a team Kelce dominated to the tune of 19 receptions, 261 yards and a score in two games last season. Keep him plugged in as your starting TE.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 7:11pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce racked up four receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: The yardage total was Kelce's second-lowest mark of the season, and he has now failed to score touchdowns in back-to-back games for the first time. He'll get a chance to redeem himself to fantasy owners in Week 7 in a short week against the Raiders on Thursday night.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 10:42am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) was able practice fully for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Owners shouldn't consider themselves out of the woods yet, as Kelce's upgrade from no practice on Wednesday to a full practice Thursday is a dramatic jump for a player who supposedly suffered a concussion Sunday night. The increase of activity is a good thing, however. If he is active for Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers - and it appears he is trending in that direction - he should be started in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 3:39pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Oct. 12, one day after he did not participate at all.

    Huddle Up: This is wonderful news for Kelce owners, as this basically assures he'll be out there on Sunday. It's also extra critical he's getting this full practice in because the Chiefs play in one of the late-afternoon contests. As usual, he'll bring TE1 value to the table and owners may be salivating over his potential in this one. In two matchups with Pittsburgh last year (including playoffs), Kelce reeled in 10 of 15 targets for 100 yards and a touchdown.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 9:53am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) has advanced to the next level of the concussion protocol and will practice in limited fashion Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has caught 15 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown in the last two weeks. He's an elite option against the Pittsburgh Steelers if he's cleared.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 10:06am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) will not practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: It's not a good sign for his Week 6 availability, as some of the steps in the NFL's concussion protocol before getting cleared by an independent neurologist include light aerobic exercise, the introduction of strength training and a return to non-contact activities. There is no evidence yet to suggest Kelce is doing any of that yet, so owners should be prepared to start another tight end this week. A.J. Derby is one readily available option with a good matchup (New York Giants) who might fill the bill.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 7:50pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (concussion) left the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans in the second half due to a possible concussion. He went to the locker room to be evaluated.

    Huddle Up: Kelce checked out in the first half, but returned briefly. However, he did not come out in the second half. If he is forced to miss time going forward Demetrius Harris might see a bump in targets.

  • Posted: 10/2/2017 10:07pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce recorded a season-high 111 receiving yards on seven catches Monday, Oct. 2, versus the Washington Redskins. He also scored his second touchdown of the season.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has been widely regarded as one of the top tight ends in all of football for a couple of years now, and the soon-to-be 28-year-old just continues to back up that reputation. Even when quarterback Alex Smith inevitably regresses from his current peak, Kelce should still maintain above-average numbers, as he continues to serve as a dependable TE1 every week.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 6:36pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce posted just one catch for one yard on his only target in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: There was no word of any kind of injury for Kelce, it just appears the Chargers did a good job of taking him out of the game and forcing Alex Smith to go elsewhere. He'll look to rebound in Week 4 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 2:07pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 103 yards and scored a go-ahead touchdown on a 15-yard catch as the Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-20, on Sunday, Sept. 17.

    Huddle Up: Kelce only missed two of his targets, suggesting a solid day for the tight end. He appears to have strong rapport with QB Alex Smith in the Chiefs offense, and that's a big chunk of what you need. Kelce remains a strong TE1 option.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 9:52pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce was held to 40 yards on five receptions against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 7. He added a four-yard carry.

    Huddle Up: Most of Kelce's meager contributions came on shovel passes, but it's nothing to worry about long term. Bill Belichick's gameplan is always to take away an opponent's top weapon, and Kelce had six performances of fewer than 40 yards in 2016 when he finished with 1,125 receiving yards. Stay the course.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 11:20am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce will be the focus of the New England Patriots' defense Thursday, Sept. 7. SS Patrick Chung is expected to cover Kelce for the majority of the game, but there are packages designed to give Chung help with Kelce.

    Huddle Up: Successfully limiting Kelce would create more opportunities for Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley in the passing game. The bottom line is that the only Chiefs that should be in starting lineups tonight are Kelce, who is still comfortably in TE1 territory, Hill and Kareem Hunt.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 5:57pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (calf) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Kelce will have a big role in the passing game against the New England Patriots this week and should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 12:57pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (calf) was limited in practice Tuesday, Sept. 5.

    Huddle Up: Kelce should take the field Thursday night as long as there aren't any setbacks leading up to then. The fifth-year tight end is due for a big season, especially with Jeremy Maclin out of town. He's a weekly start unless injured.

  • Posted: 9/4/2017 3:06pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (calf) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 4.

    Huddle Up: Kelce missed time during the preseason because of the injury but appears to be on track to play in Week 1. He is one of the more productive tight ends in the NFL and should be a starting option in all leagues.

  • Posted: 8/8/2017 6:06am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) remains out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has been dealing with swelling in his knee, but it doesn't appear serious yet. He set career highs with 85 grabs for 1,125 yards last season. The only thing that keeps him from the elite tier is his 14 touchdowns in three seasons. He's a very good TE1, but he'll need to see more pay dirt to take the next step.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 5:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) worked out on the sidelines during practice Monday, Aug. 7.

    Huddle Up: Kelce has been dealing with swelling in his knee for most of training camp, so the Chiefs are taking things slowly with him. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation but he has time to recover before the start of the season. Kelce is a No. 1 fantasy tight end if he can stay healthy this season.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 7:34am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs QB Travis Kelce (knee) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 7.

    Huddle Up: Kelce posted career highs with 85 grabs for 1,125 yards last season. The only thing that keeps him from the elite tier is he has just 14 touchdowns in three seasons. He's a very, very good TE1, but he'll need to see more pay dirt to take the next step.

  • Posted: 8/6/2017 1:40pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 6.

    Huddle Up: Kelce is dealing with swelling in his knee, so he probably will not return until he is 100 percent. He was one of the best tight ends in the NFL last season and should continue to be a focal point in the Chiefs passing game in 2017. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/4/2017 11:44am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) has dealt with knee swelling on occasion throughout training camp, although head coach Andy Reid believes he'll be fine because it only flares up 'every once in a while.'

    Huddle Up: Kelce underwent a microfracture surgery as a rookie in 2013, so occasional swelling in that same knee shouldn't be considered too alarming, but it is noteworthy nonetheless. Unless the problem persists, however, Kelce can still be drafted as the second tight end overall in fantasy.

  • Posted: 7/24/2017 2:38pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) is ready for the start of training camp this week despite recovering from a shoulder injury.

    Huddle Up: Kelce is a game changer for the Chiefs, so it's vital that he's full go to start the season. He probably won't be pushed too hard in camp or during the preseason. Draft him as a top three tight end assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks.

  • Posted: 6/15/2017 11:42am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) has a 'pretty good chance' of being ready for training camp, according to head coach Andy Reid. Kelce is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery and it was originally believed that he would not be healthy enough for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Kelce is the best tight end in the NFL not named Rob Gronkowski. What he lacks in touchdowns he makes up for in receptions and yards. As long as Kelce is at full health by the start of the season, he should be one of the first three tight ends drafted.

  • Posted: 4/17/2017 12:29pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) is not expected to be completely healthy before the start of training camp, although he may participate in some light activities, according to head coach Andy Reid. Kelce underwent shoulder surgery earlier this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs may take it easy with their star tight end so as to not risky any aggravation. If he avoids any setbacks along the way, he should be full go before the regular season commences. Kelce deserves to be one of the first three tight ends drafted in 2017 after being the top scoring fantasy tight end last season.

  • Posted: 4/13/2017 5:42pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) is expected to be '100 percent for training camp,' according to general manager John Dorsey, who added that he is 'ahead' from a rehabilitation standpoint.

    Huddle Up: Kelce underwent shoulder surgery in February, but fortunately, it looks like that won't impede the star tight end going into the new season. As a result, owners shouldn't let that affect his status on draft day, as it appears Kelce can be selected with confidence in hopes of him providing top-five production at his position. He's worth the investment given his role in the offense.

  • Posted: 3/1/2017 2:24pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (shoulder) recently underwent offseason shoulder surgery, according to head coach Andy Reid. Reid said he believes Kelce would miss some offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp.

    Huddle Up: Kelce likely will not be on the field much this offseason but does not appear to be in danger of missing any playing time. He recorded 1,125 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2016 and should be a big part of the team's passing game next season. Kelce should be a weekly starting option for owners and probably will be one of the first tight ends selected in drafts.

  • Posted: 2/19/2017 6:52pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce ranked second in the NFL with 655 yards after catch in 2016, and he was the only tight end to rank in the top 15 in the category.

    Huddle Up: Kelce possesses rare athleticism for the tight position, and he has seen his receptions, targets and yards all increase in each of his first three years. You can make a strong argument that Kelce is the safest TE1 heading into 2017.

  • Posted: 1/28/2017 10:59am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught 19 passes for 261 yards and one touchdown against the Denver Broncos this season.

    Huddle Up: Kelce averaged 9.5 catches, 130.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns against the Broncos this season and led all tight ends with 1,125 yards during the regular season. Kelce should be one of the most attractive tight ends in fantasy leagues next season and should be a weekly starting option.

  • Posted: 1/15/2017 10:25pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs WR Travis Kelce had five catches for 77 yards in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Kelce is a decent TE1 option as long as Alex Smith is at quarterback, because Smith and Kelce have developed a pretty strong rapport together. To get that many yards against the Steelers' vaunted defense is a nice accomplishment.

  • Posted: 12/25/2016 8:54pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce set a franchise record for receiving yards by a tight end, catching 11 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown in a 33-10 win over the Denver Broncos Sunday, Dec. 25.

    Huddle Up: Kelce torched Denver's linebackers, and he now has five 100-yard games in his last six contests. He has left no doubt he is on the short list of elite fantasy tight ends.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 8:00pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce managed three receptions for 41 yards in the Week 15 game against the Tennessee Titans. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: Kelce saw his four-game streak of 100-plus games come to an end, but he remains an obvious must-start fantasy option across the board. He has been the most effective TE in all of fantasy lately despite the fact he hasn't visited the end zone since Week 7.
