Last year the talk was about the Kansas City Chiefs not giving Travis Kelce enough snaps as he split time with Anthony Fasano. This year he's getting the snaps but he's not getting the ball enough.
Rotoworld's Evan Silva said on Ross Tucker's podcast that Kelce has 11 targets through two games. He has caught 10 o those for 164 yards and two touchdowns. There's also this:
#Chiefs Travis Kelce is 14th among TEs in targets through 2 weeks. He's 1st in catch rate, 2nd in yds, 3rd in TDs & 2nd in yds after catch.— Evan Silva (@evansilva) September 24, 2015
The Chiefs have a few mouths to feed on offense, mainly Jamaal Charles, Kelce and Jeremy Maclin (in that order). Kelce is a playmaker, which we all knew, and he needs the ball more, which these numbers now tell us. Kelce can make contested catches and he's athletic enough to have a matchup advantage against whoever is covering him so there can be opportunities created to get him the ball more. Here's to hoping the Chiefs recognize Kelce as their biggest playmaker in the passing game.
