Among tight ends, Travis Kelce ranks third in missed tackles, fourth in yards after the catch and fifth in run blocking.
In other words, believe the hype.
While Kelce’s emergence comes at Anthony Fasano’s expense, a healthy chunk of the second-year star’s yards after the catch have stemmed from his mentor rubbing/picking multiple defenders (e.g. “mesh” concept).
Fasano’s TE Ranking: No. 44 of 62
Kelce’s TE Ranking: No. 6 of 62
