The biggest injury news for Bengals vs. Chiefs was dropped on Sunday afternoon, when it was reported by FOX that Travis Kelce is a game-time decision for Kansas City.

Kelce is dealing with a back injury, and the Chiefs want to make sure he's good to run before the game.

Travis Kelce player props were on the move quickly. His receiving yards line was hovering around 80 throughout the week, and it was even 78.5 at some sportsbooks on Sunday morning.

When news of Kelce's injury, broke, though, it fell further from 75.5 to 73.5 (FanDuel) on Sunday afternoon.

Kelce’s Anytime Touchdown Scorer odds moved as well, although less drastically. Those went from -105 to +110.

Sean Koerner and Chris Raybon’s expert projection had Kelce pegged for 74 receiving yards, but that was before taking this injury into account. He’s projected for 6.8 receptions against his total of 6.5 (-138) at FanDuel.

What is QuickSlip?

QuickSlip is an Action Network feature that allows users to automatically pre-load their bet slip at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Noah Gray is the player who would benefit most from Kelce’s absence. The Chiefs’ No. 2 tight end is already active in the offense, regularly playing more than 50% of snaps throughout the season. Gray has a catch in 17 of the 18 games he’s played in this season, including 14 straight.

While news of Kelce’s injury spread, Gray’s receptions over at 1.5 started gaining juice. It went from -114 to -136 in a 10-minute span around 3 p.m. ET.
