Travis Kelce’s hyper-extended knee has Fantasy Football owners scrambling

The NFL is officially back on Thursday night when the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs hosting the upstart Detroit Lions on Thursday Night Football. It’s a tough spot for the visiting team, going up against the defending Super Bowl champions, but if the Lions have something potentially going their way it is the fact All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce’s availability is up in the air.

According to reports Tuesday, Kelce hyperextended his knee during practice and his status for the opener Thursday night remains unknown.

For those who were searching for more specific injury information, look no further than Travis Kelce’s brother, Jason. Jason Kelce, the center for the Philadelphia Eagles, went on the WIP Morning Show and detailed what is going on with his brother’s knee.

For Fantasy Football owners, this is horrible news heading into the first game of the regular season. For people who participate in a PPR league, Kelce is a first round pick and a weekly staple for their fantasy lineups.

If you fall into that category of being a Tavis Kelce fantasy football owner, you might want to make some moves in case Kelce is held out of the Week 1 contest. Fans First Sports Network’s Jeremy Betz gave some options for you to pick up who are probably available and could fill in, even if only for a week.

This is less than ideal for the Chiefs, but also  for the many fans who have Kelce on their fantasy football rosters. With the Chiefs and Lions kicking off on Thursday night, there will likely be reports on whether or not Kelce will be in the lineup or sit this game out.

Be sure to stay tuned to FFSN for the latest news and notes surrounding the NFL kickoff game between the Chiefs and Lions Thursday night.
