Jared Wiley

23-Year-Old Tight EndTE
2024 Fantasy Outlook
With Travis Kelce likely in the twilight years of his career, the Chiefs selected Wiley in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, likely to bolster their future options at tight end. Noah Gray, a fifth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, has served in the top backup role the past couple of seasons, but his rookie deal expires after the 2024 season, and it's unclear if the team wants to invest in him long-term. Wiley turned in 47 grabs for 520 yards and eight touchdowns last year with TCU but is likely positioned for a depth role with Kansas City in 2024, aiming to contribute down the road.

The Chiefs selected Wiley in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, 131st overall.
Travis Kelce isn't going anywhere, but it makes sense for the Chiefs to add some depth behind the 34-year-old future Hall of Famer. Wiley was blocked from being a factor at Texas by fellow draftee Ja'Tavion Sanders. However, the former's transfer to TCU in 2022 put him on the map. Wiley caught four touchdowns that season, then got more involved as a senior with 47 grabs for 520 yards and eight scores. He has good speed (4.62) for his size (6-foot-6) and will be able to develop behind one of the best to ever do it. Dynasty players should note that Wiley will turn 24 as a rookie, however.

Impressed Mahomes in OTAs

Wiley stood out in spring practices and impressed Patrick Mahomes with his mix of athleticism and playmaking ability, per Nate Taylor of The Athletic. "The more he gets down the field, he can really make those tough, contested catches," Mahomes said of Wiley. "I want him to play even more physical. I know it's hard in OTAs. You can't really bump, but I think he can make those tough catches in the middle of the field. He's faster than people think he is."
Wiley has a chance to supplant Noah Gray as the top backup to Travis Kelce in 2024. The 6-foot-6, 249-pound tight end was drafted by the Chiefs in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft out of TCU.
