Few NFL tight ends have played as consistently well as long as Kansas Chiefs’ 10th year renaissance man Travis Kelce has, with the 34-year-old once again on pace to score bountiful fantasy points in 2023. So far this year, Kelce has hauled in 27 catches for 222 yards and three touchdowns, averaging out to 55.5 receiving yards per game through the four contests that the veteran tight end’s been able to suit up for.

Can Kelce Turn A Corner In Week 6?
It’s been a relatively slow start by Kelce’s standards this season, with the veteran tight end failing to eclipse the 100-yard mark through four regular season contests and only hauling in double-digit receptions once — that being Sunday’s 27-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5. Still, we see Kelce as the No. 1 fantasy option at tight end for Week 6, giving the 34-year-old +375 (21.1%) odds of being the top TE in the league, fantasy points wise — ranking just ahead of T.J. Hockenson of the Minnesota Vikings (+500).
Hockenson has had his share of struggles in his first full season with Minnesota, with the 26-year-old failing to score in four of the team’s first five games this season and sitting at 30 catches for 254 yards and two touchdowns this year.
Still, the sixth year tight end out of Iowa is still our No. 2 tight end, fantasy points wise, for Week 6 at +500, while Sam LaPorta of the Detroit Lions (+615), Mark Andrews of the Baltimore Ravens (+700) and Chicago Bears’ TE Cole Kmet (+850) round out our latest top five.
LaPorta, Andrews and Kmet all have three receiving touchdowns apiece this season, while Laporta has a few more receiving yards (289) than Kmet (231) or Andrews (225) and more receptions (25) than either Kmet (23) or Andrews (20).
