Kelce secured seven of 11 targets for 104 yards in the Chiefs' 30-24 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
Kelce was one of the few bright spots for the Chiefs offense on a turnover-marred afternoon, as he eclipsed the century mark for the second straight game. He also paced Kansas City in receptions, receiving yards and targets, and he should continue to play an outsized role in the team's air attack during a Week 4 interconference road showdown with the Eagles.

Kelce had seven receptions (eight targets) for 109 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-35 loss to Baltimore.
EDGE Analysis
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.

Kelce caught six of seven targets for 76 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 33-29 win over the Browns.
EDGE Analysis
Kansas City was down 22-10 heading into halftime, but Patrick Mahomes quickly got to work in the third quarter, hitting Kelce for an 11-yard score to begin the comeback and then finding the tight end again on an eight-yard strike midway through the fourth that gave his team its first lead of the game. Kelce and Tyreek Hill were the only two players to see more than three targets from Mahomes on the afternoon, a narrow tree that should lead to big numbers again for Kelce on the road in Week 2 against the Ravens.

Kelce secured his only target for eight yards in the Chiefs' 17-10 preseason win over the Cardinals on Friday night.
EDGE Analysis
Kelce had dealt with some minor back tightness earlier in camp, but he dispelled any doubts about his health by suiting up and playing in Friday's contest. The multi-time Pro Bowler will look to achieve the lofty feat of topping last year's career-best numbers of 105 receptions, 1,416 yards and 11 touchdowns while once again serving as one of Patrick Mahomes' top two targets.

Kelce (back) is practicing Saturday, Aaron Ladd of KSHB 41 News reports.
EDGE Analysis
Kelce exited Thursday's practice with back tightness, but his return to the practice field two days later suggests the issue was minor. The star tight end is primed for another strong campaign after reaching the 1,000-yard mark in each of the past five seasons.

Kelce was removed from practice Thursday due to hip and back tightness, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
It's likely nothing to worry about this early in camp. Kelce has played 15 or 16 games in seven straight seasons, topping 850 snaps in each of the past six and 1,000 yards in each of the past five.

Kelce caught 10 of 15 targets for 133 yards during Kansas City's 31-9 loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.
EDGE Analysis
Kelce led the Chiefs in both targets and yards Sunday, and he capped the postseason with three straight games over 100 receiving yards. Still, as the Chiefs' offensive line (sans both starting tackles) proved unable to match Tampa Bay's pass rush and protect an already-hobbled Patrick Mahomes, Kelce's ability to move the chains wasn't enough to keep the offense competitive. The normally sure handed tight end also dropped a potentially game-changing third-down pass in the first half. Still, Kelce is coming off a season in which he set the all-time tight end yardage record (1,416) while also scoring a career-high 11 touchdowns, and he's now logged three straight campaigns with over 1,200 receiving yards. He's locked in as the unquestioned top tight end for 2021 fantasy drafts, assuming there are no questions about Mahomes' health after he undergoes offseason toe surgery, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports is expected. The only question will be whether Kelce warrants a first-round selection.

Kelce secured 13 of his 15 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 38-24 win against the Bills in the AFC Championship Game.
EDGE Analysis
Kelce evidently has Buffalo's number, as he does most every team in the NFL, with his only other multi-TD performance of the season coming Week 6 against the Bills. It was a seemingly favorable matchup, with Buffalo surrendering an NFL-worst 92 receptions to opposing tight ends during the regular season. Kelce predictably cashed in. The three-time All-Pro enjoyed a ludicrous start to the playoff rematch, setting a Chiefs franchise postseason record with nine first-half receptions Sunday. Heading into a Super Bowl matchup against the Buccaneers on Sunday, Feb. 7, Kelce carries a streak of six consecutive outings with 10-plus targets and at least one TD catch.

Kelce caught eight of 11 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Browns in the AFC divisional round.
EDGE Analysis
Kelce scored from 20 yards out early in the second quarter as the Chiefs controlled the game early, but the momentum shifted after quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a concussion in the third quarter. The tight end continued to be effective with Chad Henne under center, making catches of five and 24 yards. Even if Mahomes is unable to play against the Bills in next week's AFC Championship Game, Kelce should still thrive against a Buffalo defense that has struggled to defend tight ends all season.

Kelce is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Kelce is coming off a first-round playoff bye and also rested Week 17 against the Chargers, so he should have the benefit of fresh legs after logging a busy regular season (105-1,416-11). Top wideout Tyreek Hill, who dealt with a hamstring injury back in December, is also off the Chiefs' injury report. Patrick Mahomes will thus have his full assortment of pass catching weapons available during Sunday's divisional-round matchup against the Browns and top cornerback Denzel Ward (illness), who came off the COVID-19 list Wednesday.
