Who is Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce showed all the athletic traits a modern tight end could wish to have during his predraft process. He posted an 82nd percentile 40 time of 4.66, contributing to a 90th percentile Speed Score. Kelce also demonstrated an incredible wing span, with an 80th percentile Catch Radius of 10.16. Kelce was a third-round draft pick by the Chiefs in 2013. He suffered a knee injury during his rookie campaign that required microfracture surgery. The injury led him to miss almost the entire season. He made his mark in the league starting in his second season. In 2014, he caught 62 passes for 862 yards. This began a sequence of eight straight seasons with at least 800 yards, with more than 1,000 in his last six. No tight end in NFL history has more 1,000-yard seasons than Kelce. Kelce signed a four-year, $57.25 million contract extension with the Chiefs on August 14, 2020, and that season Kelce caught 105 passes for 1,416 yards and a career-high 11 touchdowns. This yardage was enough to set a new single-season record for a tight end in NFL history. Kelce has been efficient as well as productive during this span. He has finished no lower than No.2 in Expected Points Added (EPA) since 2016.

Kelce has made his mark as one of the premier yards after the catch operators at the tight end position throughout his memorable run of dominance. He hasn't ranked lower than No.3 among all tight ends in YAC since 2017. Kelce led all tight ends in 2017 and 2021. Kelce commanded a 22.3 percent target share in 2021 and led all tight ends with 543 routes run. He saw only seven deep balls in 2021, but still finished No.4 in air yards with 971. Just to show that not even Kelce is perfect, he had six drops in 2021, "good" for No.6 among all tight ends. Kelce has attempted three passes in the regular season, a nod to his old position. He has one completion for four yards and a touchdown.

Kelce performed as a top tight end before 2018, but his partnership with Patrick Mahomes propelled him into another tier. Kelce averages 4.9 receptions for 62 yards and 13.3 PPR points per game with other players under center. With Mahomes at quarterback, Kelce has posted 6.4 grabs for 82.6 yards and a whopping 18.2 PPR points per outing.

Just to show that Kelce is no mere regular season compiler, he has been a historic producer in the playoffs. He has seven career games in the postseason with 100-yards or more. The only player with more such games is Jerry Rice.
