Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (Knee) OUT For Thursday Night Football vs. Lions I CBS SportsSep 08, 2023
Alright, breaking news, the NFL season opener to
nightin Kansas City where the world champion Chiefs will be without pro tight end Travis Kelsey Kelsey hyperextended his
kneeearlier in the week and after testing it before the game has been ruled out for to
night's contest. The Chiefs expect power during Week 2 against Jacksonville, but he won't be there Week 1 tonight against Detroit. Jamie Eisenberg on the latest news on how to proceed from a fantasy perspective, so the unthinkable happened: you don't have Travis Kelsey for the first week. That will definitely create a big hole in your lineup, but there are some tight ends who can help you first and foremost.
Noah Gray could be the Chiefs man to step up and be an option for Patrick Mahomes tonight. So in a desperate situation, he should be available in almost 85 percent of leagues, you can turn to him and hopefully he'll get some of those targets that normally go to Travis Kelsey from the great Patrick Mahomes, but there are some tight ends that I like more. that should be available on the waiver wire, we're looking at Jake Ferguson for the Cowboys, Juwan Johnson for the Saints and then maybe Gerald Everett for the Chargers as well, all of those guys have good matchups, Johnson is the one with the most experience .

Appeal because I think he will be an option for Derek Carr, so if this is more than a one-week absence for Kelsey, you could look to Johnson to fill the void for the next two weeks. Ferguson will be an opportunity. -For the Dak Prescott guy we've also seen Jason Witten Dalton Schultz be guys that Dak Prescott leaned on during his career and Ferguson now the starting tight end for the Cowboys so I love facing the Giants and we'll see what happens again, moving forward there Gerald Everett is more of a one week situation because the matchup against Miami has been good, he scored a touchdown in each of his last two games in the regular season last year, but again, neither of these guys It will be Travis.
Kelsey, so I'm just hoping that if he, since he's going out tonight, he'll be back soon and hopefully he'll be there for week number two, okay, thanks Jamie, here we go, the Travis Kelsey effect, yeah, you know the one deal, it's pretty good. well and I mean I don't start with wide receiver targets here, are you going to go crazy for that? I don't know air yards per attempt, I mean, are we getting into the weeds? Here's the bottom line, you'll be missed now. he didn't have anybody the last time he was on the field it was the Super Bowl nobody in the Chief red had 20 yards receiving in that game yeah that's right so you're gonna have to pick it up and we'll tell you exactly how and I can take advantage both positively and by betting against certain people in tonight's game
