Fantasy football can be a beautiful and cruel thing. If you had a matchup involving Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, you know the feeling.

Managers saw Kelce score four touchdowns on seven receptions Monday night against the Las Vegas Raiders, with the longest touchdown coming on an 11-yard play. Talk about red zone efficiency. In half-PPR leagues, Kelce racked up 30 points with some time left in the fourth quarter. There’s a good chance if you had the tight end, you went from losing your matchup to winning it.

When it comes to superstars like Kelce, nothing is truly off the table in fantasy football. The Chiefs have been known to score a ton of points and Kelce has become Patrick Mahomes’ favorite target this season. Four touchdowns is a bit much, especially with all of them coming from within 15 yards. That’s the exciting or soul-crushing nature of fantasy football, depending on which side you’re on.
