News: 6 days agoKelce had seven receptions (eight targets) for 109 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-35 loss to Baltimore.
Spin: The Ravens were keying in on Tyreek Hill (three receptions for 14 yards), so Kelce was asked to do most of the heavy lifting on underneath routes. Even his 46-yard touchdown came on a short pass that the tight end took to the house with some nifty moves for a big man. Kelce has proven that his superhero abilities are not tied to the beard he shaved this offseason, as he now has 13 receptions, 175 yards and three touchdowns through two contests. The star tight end will look to keep things rolling against the Chargers in Week 3.
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.
