News: 1 day agoKelce caught four of eight targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Rams.
Spin: The tight end led Kansas City in receiving yards by one over Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Kelce was on the other end of Patrick Mahomes' only TD pass of the afternoon. It's his fifth touchdown in the last three games and his NFL-leading 12th of the season -- that's among all players, not just TEs. Kelce will look to extend his scoring streak to four games in Week 13 against the Bengals.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Kelce finished as fantasy's No. 2 tight end in 2021, which is actually a step back after he paced the position each of the prior five seasons. Kelce finished first at the position in routes, touchdowns and top-10 fantasy weeks, as well as second in targets, receptions and yards. It was another tremendous season, but there are concerns. Kelce's snaps have been trending down in recent years and, in 2021, he posted a career-low catch rate (68%) and yards per target (8.3), as well as his lowest target share since 2016 (22%). He also matched a career low with four end zone targets. Kelce will turn 33 this year, but he's still a featured target (perhaps more so with Tyreek Hill gone) in an elite, pass-heavy offense. Kelce remains a top-two fantasy TE.
