News: 3 hours agoKelce corralled five of seven targets for 108 yards and a touchdown Sunday, adding a two-yard passing touchdown on his lone pass attempt in a 42-21 win over the Steelers.
Spin: Patrick Mahomes and Kelce were in sync as usual, and the latter even vultured a passing touchdown. The star tight end will face a stiff test in the AFC divisional round, as the Bills have surrendered the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends all season. However, Kelce did relatively well in a Week 5 matchup between the clubs, going for six catches on 10 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown. He should, rightfully, register as the priciest tight end to roster in DFS formats next week.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The last time Kelce did not finish as a season as the top-scoring fantasy TE, Patrick Mahomes was still a year away from declaring for the NFL draft. Kelce has paced the field in five consecutive seasons, ranking no lower than fourth at the position in routes, targets, receptions and yardage each year. As if he wasn't already dominating enough, Kelce set career high marks in catches (105), receiving yards (NFL-record 1,416), TDs (11) and fantasy points (313) in 2020. He posted a top-five fantasy week in 13 of 15 appearances, finishing lower than ninth just once. In addition to benefiting from Mahomes and pass-heavy Andy Reid, the 31-year-old is so good that he's worth considering in the first round.
