Minimal 2019 impact
TEKansas City Chiefs
January 6, 2020
Yelder collected just three passes for 50 yards on four targets during 2019.
ANALYSIS
Yelder was a darkhorse candidate to see some run behind Travis Kelce at the tight end position but that never really materialized, with the second-year tight end remaining behind Blake Bell for reps. While Bell is set to become an unrestricted free agent, Yelder is an exclusive-rights free agent, meaning the Chiefs could tender him a league-minimum contract and keep him around for another season. Even if Yelder is back and Bell is gone, Yelder remains unlikely to receive much fantasy attention in 2020 as long as Kelce remains healthy.
