2021 Outlook

What can be said for Travis Kelce that hasn't already been said?

Kelce is coming off of a season in which he retook the NFL tight end receiving yardage record that he once held. His 1,416 yards were incredible and he also reached 105 receptions - fifth-most for a single season among tight ends in league history. His dominance is unquestioned at this point and his season-ending stat lines are rivaled only by a healthy Rob Gronkowski. Meanwhile, health hasn't been a concern for Kelce who has now played every game for the Chiefs in seven straight seasons, with the only exceptions being Week 17 games when the Chiefs have sat their offensive starters.

Kelce's remarkable 2020 campaign saw him outscore the No.2 TE, Darren Waller, by 34 standard points and the No.3 TE, Robert Tonyan, by 83 points. To put that into perspective, he would've been the WR3 if you eliminated the tight end position and just called him a wide receiver. The fact that he plays a position as shallow and frustrating to predict as tight end makes him a borderline cheat code for fantasy purposes.

Kelce has been the TE1 for three straight seasons and has been in the top two for five straight seasons. He's exceeded 850 receiving yards in seven straight seasons, which appears even more impressive when you consider that only Kelce himself and Darren Waller were the only tight ends to reach even 725 receiving yards in 2020.

The question at this point isn't whether or not Kelce is the TE1, but rather how far he is ahead of the rest of the pack. Darren Waller looks like a strong bet again this year and George Kittle will be back this season, but beyond that there really isn't anyone who has a realistic shot of dethroning Kelce unless he suffers an injury.

The advantage that Kelce provides at tight end is unlike anything else at any other position in fantasy football and that's why he's going to go in the first round in many, if not most fantasy drafts this season. His incredible consistency, durability and combination of high floor / high upside make him one of the most valuable players in all of fantasy football.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Travis Kelce Out for Week 16
Did not clear Covid protocol
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 26, 9:14 am

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs’ Pro-Bowl TE Travis Kelce did not clear protocols this morning and is out for today’s game vs. the Steelers, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Kelce being out, Blake Bell and rookie Noah Gray will handle tight end duties. Expect to see a lot of Tyreek Hill in the passing game and perhaps more of Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the running game.


Injury Tyreek Hill off the Covid list, still a chance for Kelce
Will know more on Kelce Sunday morning
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 25, 2:20 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has been cleared to play Sunday and Travis Kelce “still has a shot” but still has not been cleared, per source. Kelce still is expected to take multiple COVID tests by tomorrow but Chiefs expect to get an answer Sunday morning as to whether their tight end can play vs. the Steelers. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Good news for Patrick Mahomes and Hill owners as the speedy, quick wideout will be available for Week 16 against the Steelers. Both resume their value in the top tier at their positions. We'll know Kelce's fate on Sunday morning.


Injury Tyreek Hill added to Covid list
Currently 10 players on the list
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 21, 2:55 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
More COVID issues in KC, which is becoming this week’s hot spot. Chiefs’ WR Tyreek Hill, CB Rashad Fenton and TE Blake Bell are being placed on Reserve/COVID, sources tell @adamteicher and me. Other players likely coming but as one source said, “it’s a mess.” (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs already have Travis Kelce on the list. Kicker Harrison Butker has been ruled out. The Chiefs currently have 10 players on the list with more likely in the coming days.


Injury Travis Kelce placed on Covid list
K Harrison Butker also placed on the list
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 20, 4:56 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs’ TE Travis Kelce is being placed on the Reserve/COVID list, sources tell ESPN. But he is vaccinated so there’s a chance he’s back for Sunday with the new return-to-play protocols. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Chiefs play at home against the Steelers in the late-afternoon window on Sunday. It's reported that he is vaccinated so he'll be in a race to produce a negative test by late this week. Harrison Butker has also been placed on the list.
