He's coming off a game where he totaled just three receptions and 31 yards. Sure, it was in the snow, but you know what he did the last time he came off a three-catch performance? He caught eight passes for 108 yards and a touchdown. This is one of those matchups where if you simply look at fantasy points allowed, you'll see the Jets rank 13th against them, which is not great, but also not bad. When you see they've faced the eighth-fewest targets despite playing all seven games, that's the giveaway. From an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed 2.42 PPR points per target to tight ends, which ranks as the third-most in the NFL, behind only the Jaguars and Falcons. Kelce leads the NFL in both red zone targets and targets inside the 10-yard line. Well, the Jets have allowed 5-of-11 red zone targets to tight ends go for touchdowns. Start Kelce as an elite TE1 and expect game-breaking upside.

Travis Kelce catches three passes for 31 scoreless yards in victory

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught all three of his targets and turned them into 31 yards in a 43-16 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

Kelce fell victim to the negative game script as the KC defense and run game were enough to get the job done on a snowy Sunday afternoon in Denver. Kelce's 31 yards were his lowest output this season but fantasy managers shouldn't be concerned as Kelce has a solid redemption opportunity against the New York Jets in Week 8.
