Kelce caught six of seven targets for 87 yards in Monday night's 34-20 win over the Ravens.
Kelce led the Chiefs in receiving yards while going for a season-long gain of 29 yards during Monday's contest. Although he couldn't continue his touchdown streak to start the season, instead seeing teammates Anthony Sherman and Eric Fisher vulture close-range scores through the air, Kelce still caught six passes for the third straight game and topped 85 yards for the second in a row. Up next for the highly-touted tight end is a matchup against the Patriots in Week 4.
Kelce caught nine of 14 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Chargers.
Kelce led the team in targets and catches while finishing behind only Tyreek Hill in receiving yards. He got the Chiefs on the board with a 10-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, giving him two scores in as many games to start the season. The star tight end also has 140 yards and 15 receptions to his name already, so he should remain locked into fantasy lineups despite a seemingly difficult matchup against the Ravens next Monday night.
Kelce brought in all six of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' 34-20 win over the Texans on Thursday.
The big tight end was particularly involved early, producing a 4-30 line and his six-yard scoring grab over Kansas City's first two drives. Despite a relatively quiet night the rest of the way, Kelce still finished second on the team in receptions and tied for second in targets, making it a solid season-opening fantasy effort. The perennial Pro Bowler will look to put together a successful encore when he and his teammates face the Chargers in a Week 2 road matchup Sunday, Sept. 20.
Kelce (knee) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.
After being listed as a limited participant Monday on the Chiefs' first official practice report of the 2020 season, Kelce's ability to take every rep in Tuesday's session erases any concern about his availability for Thursday's game against the Texans. Coming off four straight seasons of at least 80 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards, Kelce profiles as an easy top-two fantasy tight end this season, and his stronger track record on the health front probably makes him a safer choice than 49ers standout George Kittle.
Kelce (knee) was limited in practice Monday.
Kelce has dealt with the occasional knee injury during his seven-year career, sitting out most of his rookie season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery and missing some preseason action in 2017, while having his practice reps limited in January during the Chiefs' Super Bowl run. On a positive note, he was able to get in some work Monday, but his status bears watching as Thursday's game against the Texans approaches.
The Chiefs and Kelce agreed to terms of a four-year extension Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The exact parameters of the deal haven't been revealed, but Rapoport notes the deal is worth between $14 and $15 million per year. With Kelce signed through the 2025 season, Patrick Mahomes has his top targets -- also, Tyreek Hill -- on hand to work with for the next three campaigns.
The Chiefs and Kelce are closing in on a four-year extension to keep the tight end in Kansas City through the 2025 season, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Parameters of the new contract aren't known, but the imminent agreement comes on the heels of 49ers tight end George Kittle signing a five-year, $75 million deal earlier Thursday. Notably, Kelce turns 31 in October, meaning he'll be 36 if he's able to play out the entire contract. In the end, it's worth it for the Chiefs to lock up one of its top two pass catchers -- the other being Tyreek Hill -- to give Patrick Mahomes the necessary firepower for more Super Bowl runs. Kelce himself has had at least 80 catches, 1,000 yards and four touchdowns in each of the past four seasons.
Kelce brought in all six of his targets for 43 yards and a touchdown during the Chiefs' 31-20 win over the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday.
Kelce's reception tally was second only to Tyreek Hill on the night, and his one-yard touchdown grab with 6:13 remaining officially began the Chiefs' comeback from a 20-10 deficit. Kelce earned every reception he secured against the 49ers' stingy defense, and even though he was largely held in check over the final two postseason wins, the multi-time Pro Bowler was spectacular during the regular season with a 97-1,229-5 line across 16 games. Signed through the 2021 campaign, Kelce will look to help Kansas City defend its title next season.
Kelce (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 against the 49ers.
During the first week of prep for the big game, the Chiefs continued to cap Kelce's reps, holding him to an LP/DNP/LP practice regimen. Still, his lack of designation Friday indicates the team isn't worried about his availability. While San Francisco's defense has held tight ends to an NFL-best 5.9 yards per target this season (including playoffs), the unit has allowed the 14th-most receptions (80) and ninth-most TDs (nine) to the position. Considering Kelce's stature, he seems like a good bet to prosper in the Super Bowl.
Kelce (knee) is participating in Friday's practice, Jeff Darlington of ESPN reports.
Kelce was held out of Thursday's session while battling the flu bug that's gone around Kansas City's roster since mid-January. The star tight end was listed as limited Wednesday due to a knee issue, so it remains to be seen whether he still has a cap on his reps. In any case, he'll have another full week of practice to get healthy before the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
Kelce (knee) will be held out of practice Thursday due to an illness, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Listed as limited Wednesday due to a lingering knee injury, Kelce now may be laid up for a handful of days as he's caught the flu bug that has hit other Chiefs over the last week-plus. Fortunately, he has a week and a half to return to full health for the Super Bowl, when he'll be facing a 49ers defense that gave up an NFL-low 5.9 yards per target to tight ends this season (including playoffs).
Kelce (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.
Kelce experienced a cap on his practice reps in advance of the Chiefs' first two postseason contests due to the same knee issue, only to suit up on game day. With two weeks to prepare for the Super Bowl, he'll have plenty of time to get as close to 100 percent as possible. In the aforementioned matchups, he totaled 13 receptions (on 16 targets) for 164 yards and three touchdowns.
Kelce caught three of four targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 35-24 win over the Titans.
Kelce's monstrous performance last week clearly caught the attention of the Titans defense, which placed the tight end in coverage early and often. Kelce grabbed all but one of the looks thrown his way but did little of note outside his long gain of 18 yards. Despite this underwhelming effort, Kelce should be a focal point of the offense in the Super Bowl against either the 49ers or the Packers.
Kelce (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sundays' AFC Championship Game against the Titans.
Kelce's practice reps this week were limited as he managed a knee issue, but per Adam Teicher of ESPN.com the tight end declared himself "ready to roll" Friday. With that, Kelce is in line to remain a key target for QB Patrick Mahomes after going off in last weekend's 51-31 win over the Texans, hauling in 10 of his 12 targets for 134 yards and three TDs.
Coach Andy Reid expects Kelce (knee) to suit up for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Titans, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Kelce has been limited in practice so far this week due to a bruised knee, but there never seemed to be any doubt about his odds to play this weekend. Friday's injury report ultimately can clear the way for the tight end to do so.
Kelce (knee) remained limited at practice Thursday.
We'll revisit the tight end's status Friday to see if he he's listed as questionable or minus an injury designation for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Titans. Either way, we expect Kelce (who caught 10 of 12 targets for 134 yards and three TDs in the Chiefs' divisional-round win over the Texans) to be available this weekend.
Kelce (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.
James Palmer of NFL Network previously noted that Kelce was dealing with a hamstring issue, but the Chiefs only referenced the tight end's knee injury on Wednesday's practice report. In any case, we expect Kelce -- who logged an impressive 10-134-3 stat line in his team's divisional-round win over the Texans -- to be a go for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Titans, though it's possible he may be officially listed as questionable for the contest.
Kelce (knee/hamstring) is expected to practice Wednesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Kelce continues to contend with a bruised knee, but a hamstring injury has been added to his list of health concerns, per Palmer. In any case, it's a good enough sign that Kelce is taking the practice field in his first chance to do so, with his activity level to be confirmed on Wednesday's injury report.
Kelce hauled in 10 of 12 targets for 134 receiving yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 51-31 AFC divisional-round win against the Texans.
Houston seemingly had no answers for the five-time Pro Bowl tight end, as Kelce had seven more receptions than any other Kansas City player Sunday while accounting for nearly 42 percent of his team's receiving yardage. He had a costly third-down drop on the Chiefs' opening drive of the afternoon; however, he responded by scoring on three consecutive second-quarter drives -- logging touchdown grabs of five, five and six yards as KC accounted for 21 points over the final 8:05 of the first half. Kelce has four combined touchdowns over two of his past three outings heading into an AFC Championship Game matchup against a Tennessee defense that allowed the second-most TDs to tight ends during the regular season.
Kelce (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's playoff game against the Texans, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
As expected, the star tight end will tough it out after being limited in practice this past week as he managed some knee pain. As long as he avoids any in-game setbacks, Kelce should remain a key target for QB Patrick Mahomes.
