Kelce (ankle surgery) has not yet been been cleared to practice

Summary

Setting career bests in targets, catches, yards, and touchdowns, Kelce once again earned elite fantasy production at this position for the third consecutive year. He's a dominant athlete at the position who finally got paired with a quarterback willing to feed him the ball in tight windows of coverage. Kelce made numerous big plays in pivotal game situations that we commonly see reserved for the primary receiver an offense. Look for Kelce and Mahomes' trust to deepen this year, which means fantasy players should expect more of the same production from Kelce in 2019. (May 22)

Chiefs | Travis Kelce to sit out mini-camp (Sat Jun 8, 02:44 AM) - Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) is unlikely to participate in the team's mandatory mini-camp next week, according to head coach Andy Reid, who indicated Kelce should be back for training camp.

Our View: Kelce is recovering from ankle surgery that he had back in March. It was called a 'clean up' procedure and he was always likely to miss all offseason work. The plan was for him to be back by training camp.
