Travis Kelce Favored To Lead NFL In Receiving Yards

  • Travis Kelce has the shortest odds to lead the NFL in receiving yards with +200 odds.
  • Going into Week 15 Kelce has recorded 1,250 receiving yards which is the most in the NFL.
  • Kelce’s teammate Tyreek Hill is listed at +500 odds to lead the NFL in receiving yards.

KANSAS CITY — The Kansas City Chiefs have shown no signs of slowing down as they continue to look like the NFL’s best team with a 12-1 record as they sit atop the AFC. One of the major reasons why the Chiefs' offense has been so unstoppable outside of NFL MVP front runner Patrick Mahomes is because of tight end Travis Kelce.

Kelce is the unquestioned best tight end in football this season and he is top 10 in the NFL in catches (90), receiving yards (1,250), and receiving touchdowns (9).

Kelce’s 1,250 receiving yards are the most in the NFL and if he continues to play at this level not only could the Cincinnati product lead the league in receiving but he could also eclipse George Kittle’s record for most receiving yards by a tight end in a season with 1,377.

With only two games left it seems that record will be Kelce’s but will he be able to continue leading the NFL in receiving yards is the biggest question.

There has never been a tight end that led the NFL in receiving yards and Travis Kelce could become the first to do so. He’s already become the first tight end in NFL history to record five straight seasons of 1,000 yards.

Kelce doesn’t have a huge lead over the field tho but he does have Patrick Mahomes as his quarterback which is significant enough to give him the nod to make history this season.

Going into Week 15 Kelce has a 70 yard lead on Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf who has the second-most receiving yards. At Bovada Kelce has the shortest odds to become the NFL’s leading receiver.

2020-2021 Player With Most Regular Season Receiving Yards

  • Travis Kelce +200
  • D.K. Metcalf +350
  • Stefon Diggs +500
  • Tyreek Hill +500
  • DeAndre Hopkins +550
  • Davante Adams +800
  • Justin Jefferson +1600
  • Allen Robinson +5000
  • Calvin Ridley +5000
  • Terry McLaurin +5000
  • Amari Cooper +6600
  • Robby Anderson +6600

Despite the Kansas City Chiefs having a tough game against the New Orleans Saints coming up Kelce has shown this season that he is virtually matchup proof. The Mahomes to Kelce connection has been going strong this year and with three games remaining the opportunity for Kelce to make history is there.

Take the +200 odds on Kelce to end this season with the most receiving yards in the NFL as he’s the top target in the Chiefs passing game. Metcalf’s +350 odds are intriguing but Russell Wilson has cooled off down the stretch.

After the Saints game, the Chiefs will have two home contests against the Atlanta Falcons and Los Angeles Chargers both teams defenses have struggled this year and provide Kelce with good matchups to continue his tear on the league.
