Travis Kelce is unanimously considered the best tight end in the NFL after a record-setting seven consecutive seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards. He’s Patrick Mahomes’ favorite target and shows no signs of slowing down.
Despite that, Kelce’s receiving yards prop at FanDuel Sportsbook is just 1,075.5 yards, a number he’s cleared comfortably for five straight years. I’m hammering the over on this prop and will explain why below, but let’s first make sure you’re utilizing FanDuel’s new no-sweat bet offer that makes this prop bet a slam dunk.

Travis Kelce Receiving Yards Prop
Kelce’s receiving yards prop is just 1,075.5 yards. Barring injury, it’s difficult to imagine the game’s best tight end falling short of this number. He compiled 110 catches for 1,338 yards last season, showcasing impressive chemistry with Mahomes and an uncanny ability to freelance when plays break down.
Despite his large frame, Kelce glides in and out of his routes with precision, seemingly always able to find soft spots in the defense. He added another 257 receiving yards in Kansas City’s three playoff games, giving Mahomes a comfortable safety blanket in critical moments.
A prop of 1,075.5 yards means we need Kelce to average just under 64 receiving yards per game to hit the over. He’s averaged 12.7 yards per catch for his career, so we only need roughly five catches a contest.
Kelce had at least five catches in 13 of the Chiefs’ 17 regular-season games last year. His production profile is off the charts and I don’t expect a step back this year.
Since Mahomes took over as starting quarterback, Kelce’s worst season resulted in 1,125 yards while he’s cleared 1,330 three times. He’s played in at least 15 games every season since his rookie year, so unless you expect an unprecedented injury, this is a slam-dunk bet.
Don’t overthink bets like these. Utilize FanDuel’s promo just in case, then enjoy another season of the best tight end to ever play football.
