Summary

Many predicted Kelce would suffer a significant regression in fantasy production after earning the No. 1 spot at his position in 2016. However, Kelce doubled his touchdown total and was only 87 yards shy of matching his receiving yardage of the previous year. His production could change with the promotion of Patrick Mahomes and the addition of Sammy Watkins to the starting lineup, but don't count on it. So much of the Chiefs' spread offense revolved around gaining advantageous match-ups against linebackers and safeties that the tight end position is a natural focal point of the scheme. Mahomes' aggressive, tight-window style of quarterbacking could also lead to more big-play targets for Kelce. At worst, Kelce becomes less consistent with his production--earning more highs and lows. At best, he could be in store for a career year. Either way, Kelce remains a top priority at the position in fantasy leagues. (May 13)
