Notes for Player Combination
 
Travis Kelce
TE - KC
Expert 
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
At age 32, posted his 3rd season with at least 90 catches, 1,100 receiving yards and 9 TDs - no other TE in the history of the NFL has done that more than onceShould certainly lose a decent amount of target share with Davante Adams now in the Raiders' fold, but that could be offset by also losing some defensive attention
Justin Lampkin
Clock Management Fantasy Football
Kelce has been arguably the best TE in the NFL for years but we may be seeing a changing of the guard with Kyle Pitts. I think his numbers fall, with the loss of Tyreek Hill he will see more double coverages but his skill will still keep him among the top TE's. 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
After finishing as the fantasy TE1 for three straight seasons, Travis Kelce was finally de-throned by Mark Andrews in 2021. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end posted his worst points per game average (16.6) dating back to 2017 while also posting a career-low in yards per route run (1.84) and PFF grade (81.8). It seems logical that Kelce's reign as the perennial consensus TE1 has come to a conclusion as he enters his age-33 season in 2022. However, it's impossible to ignore the high-end target share that Kelce will command in the Chiefs offense after they traded Tyreek Hill. His 20% target share ranked second-best at the position in 2021. Although it was a slight fall-off from his 23% average target share from 2019 and 2020.There's bound to be some hesitancy about drafting tight ends early after guys like George Kittle, Darren Waller, Kyle Pitts, T.J. Hockenson and Logan Thomas failed to live up to their lofty projections (due to injury or not). But the process was still sound behind adding some of those players in the early rounds if you look at their per-game production. Speaking to Waller, the Raiders tight end came in third in expected fantasy points per game (14.6), which ranked top-20 among all tight ends and wide receivers. He also ranked sixth in points per game (12.1) and second in targets per game (8.5) The major concern with Waller in 2022 is how much Davante Adams will eat into his targets. However, I'd focus more on valuing Waller based on how good the Raiders offense as a whole can be with the addition of Adams. I'd be willing to forego one or fewer targets per game for Waller, if it means more scoring opportunities. The big-bodied Black Hole tight end is primed for positive touchdown regression after converting just two of his 10 end-zone targets into touchdowns in 2021.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kelce was not quite as good in 2021, but still finished the fantasy season with 1,094 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns. Given his durability and consistency, he is still one of the safest fantasy picks in the NFL and will be the focal point of this offense with Tyreek Hill in Miami.Waller had four double-digit fantasy games in 2021, but he also missed 6 games due to injury. Waller is entering his 30-year old season in 2022, but he should still be an elite fantasy tight end.

Huge winner of Tyreek Hill Trade as Mahomes' main trusted weapon 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Was the highest PPR fantasy scorer among tight ends for five consecutive years before Mark Andrews finally toppled him in 2021. Kelce has topped 1,000 yards for six straight seasons. He'll turn 33 in October, though we've seen no signs of decline.A consensus top-25 overall pick in 2021 after a huge 2020, Waller was a colossal disappointment. A late-season injury was partly to blame, but he was unimpactful for long stretches. Waller will be entering his age-30 season, so a bounceback can't be taken for granted, and it's a safe bet that WR Davante Adams will put a dent in Waller's target total.
