Travis Kelce’s 2023 season with the Kansas City Chiefs has been multifaceted. His performance on the field is just one aspect of his story this season, with the budding romance between the All-Pro tight end and pop superstar Taylor Swift dominating headlines since August.
Kelce’s role in Kansas City’s offense remains a focal point for Chiefs fans as the team aims to defend its Super Bowl title. His ability to gain gritty yards after the catch remains constant, and despite early struggles in Andy Reid’s offense, Kelce’s productivity has remained steady.
With eight games remaining in the season, Kelce is Kansas City’s leading receiver by a wide margin. While the Chiefs’ receiving unit is still finding its footing, Kelce’s reliability has helped Patrick Mahomes keep Kansas City atop the AFC standings as they approach the crucial part of their schedule.
Take a look at Kelce’s accomplishments in 2023 so far and the pace he has set for himself through nine games:
Stats through Week 9
What could Kelce’s stats look like at the end of the season?
Kelce is currently on pace to finish the 2023 season with 1,268 yards on 121 catches and eight touchdowns. While these stats may seem unremarkable for a player of Kelce’s caliber, they could change as he becomes more involved in the offense over the next few weeks.
Our take on Kelce’s production
Kelce remains the NFL’s top tight end, and his production this season shows no sign of slowing down, even at 34 years old. He continues to be Patrick Mahomes’ favorite target in the passing game, and with more targets in Kansas City’s next eight games, he could set new career-best stats.
