Travis Kelce Posts Ho-Hum Line On Sunday Night

Monday, October 2, 2:46 AM

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught 6-of-9 targets for 60 yards in Week 4's close 23-20 win over the New York Jets. Kelce looked well on his way to a big night after a quick start saw him grab two passes for 29 yards on the game's opening possession, but he made only one more eight-yard reception during the first half. He corralled his first pass since early in the first period during the third quarter's late stages before bringing in a few more looks amid a late 14-play field-goal drive. After tight ends picked on New York's defensive shortcomings in recent weeks, Kelce wasn't able to take much advantage of an inside-funnel pass defense on a night quarterback Patrick Mahomes was made very uncomfortable in the pocket. Look for the 33-year-old perennial Pro Bowler to make more noise during Week 5 against a shaky Minnesota Vikings defense.

Tyler Higbee Suffers Thumb Injury

Monday, October 2, 8:24 PM

Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee (thumb) "got his thumb banged up a little bit" in the Week 4 overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Sean McVay. Higbee was questionable going into Sunday's win over the Colts with an Achilles injury, but he ended up suiting up and caught five of a season-high 11 targets for 64 yards. The 30-year-old has yet to find the end zone in the first four games, but he's been respectable as a low-end TE1 for fantasy managers with 16 receptions on 26 targets for 196 yards as the TE9 in half-PPR scoring. His thumb injury shouldn't cause him to miss the Week 5 meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday. However, the impending return of receiver Cooper Kupp (hamstring) is inevitably going to take valuable targets away from Higbee.
