Travis Kelce seeing more targets in second half vs. Eagles

Chiefs TE is starting to see more looks in the second half, which is a good sign for fantasy football managers.

Update — Kelce is now up to 4 catches for 23 yard, so in PPR formats he’s getting close to not being a complete bust in Week 4. The Chiefs are up 28-16 in the third quarter, so there’s a chance this game gets out of hand and Kelce doesn’t see as many snaps in the blowout. If the Eagles can score and keep it close, Kelce should see more targets down the stretch.

Update — Kelce will head to the locker room with one catch for four yards. To add insult to injury (he isn’t injured), Kelce’s backup Jody Fortson caught a TD pass from Mahomes to give the Chiefs a 21-13 at halftime. There’s still time for Kelce to get it going, but right now things aren’t looking up. If KC gets out to a bigger lead, the Chiefs could just run the ball instead of risking Mahomes throwing a bad INT (which he’s done a few times this season).

The Kansas City Chiefs are facing the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4 at the Linc. So far things are going well for the Chiefs in the first half (and offense overall). The issue is if you’re a Travis Kelce owner, you probably aren’t very happy right now. Kelce has one catch for four yards and we’re almost at the half.

The Chiefs are up 14-10 with the Eagles driving. Patrick Mahomes has been active throwing the ball with 2 TDs and 129 yards passing. That’s a good sign for Kelce to bounce back either in this final drive before halftime or in the third quarter. The pace is up and there have been plenty of points. Still, Kelce isn’t getting many looks with just one target and WR Tyreek Hill is already having a great game with 5 catches for 85 yards and a TD.
