Kelce had shoulder surgery early in the offseason, but should be ready for training camp according to head coach Andy Reid.

Summary

The Chiefs starting tight end turned his top-five fantasy upside into a reality in 2016, earning his second straight 100-target season and delivering 85 receptions and 1,125 yards--both tops among NFL tight ends. Kelce brings exceptional size and physical gifts to the table, but he has only accounted for 9 of Alex Smith's 35 touchdown tosses during the past 2 years. Part of the issue is Alex Smith. The Chiefs quarterback prefers to find wide-open options rather than squeezing the ball into tight windows that require the receiver to make great rebounds. Kelce has this ability, but it won't be maximized with Smith under center. It's why his touchdown production may continue to be a little lower than its potential. It's worth noting that Kelce may not be ready for camp due to off-season shoulder surgery. However, don't let Kelce's rehabilitation deter you from considering him a top-5 fantasy tight end in 2017.
