Kansas City Chiefs Top Fantasy Football Scorers: #6
Travis Kelce – TE
It is always impressive when you top out your position in Fantasy Football rankings, and that’s what Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce did. Kelce had a strong year for the Chiefs in 2016, but realistically could have had more. The star tight end’s dominance stemmed largely from a late stretch where he posted 100+ yards in five out of six games.
Here is how Travis Kelce’s performance stacked up in 2016:
- 133 points (8.3 per week)
- 1st out of all TEs
- Owned by 98.8% of teams
- Started by 95.7% of teams
That is a strong performance for the Chiefs star tight end, but realistically it could have been even better. There were several occasions where Travis Kelce left points or yards on the field with a poorly timed drop. I expect him to work on that over the offseason.
2016 Draft Position: 5th Round
Depending on how you are building your roster, this might be even higher. However, grabbing a tight end not named Gronkowski should wait until this point in the draft. Someone will take Gronk early, but otherwise Kelce should be the first tight end off the board. If you are picking at the back end of the 5th, I wouldn’t fault you for taking him in the 4th.
