If you're looking for consistent, elite production from the most difficult position to find production at, look no further than Travis Kelce. At 29 years old now entering his seventh NFL season, Kelce has unquestionably established himself as one of the greatest fantasy football tight ends of all-time. He's exceeded 1,000 receiving yards three years in a row, including this past season when he finished second in the league behind George Kittle in yards, but both players actually broke Rob Gronkowski's previous single-season record at the position.

At this point there's really no question that Kelce is going to produce top-level fantasy production in all three of the major areas - receptions, yards and touchdowns. He's done it for five straight seasons and he's in a better offense than ever before, coming off of a season when he was targeted a ridiculous 150 times. Kelce could see a 20 percent drop off in targets and still be among the league leaders at the position, which makes him one of the safest options you'll find.

The real question about Kelce's fantasy value isn't whether or not he's great, but rather whether or not the tight end position is worth spending an early round draft pick on. That's an ongoing debate that you can find plenty of data about, but the truth is that the tight end position is only getting thinner. Sure, we added George Kittle to the top tier this past season, but we also saw the retirement of Rob Gronkowski and the continued deterioration of veterans like Jimmy Graham, Greg Olsen and Delanie Walker. There may have never been a bigger discrepancy between the elite players at tight end and the rest of the pack, which does mean that those elite players are even more valuable.

One other thing to consider when investing in tight end is that the position is historically extremely dangerous to play. Players at that size, running at that speed through the middle of defenses is just a recipe for injury. It's among the, if not the most dangerous position to play in all of sports. Kelce himself has been pretty healthy throughout his career which could mean that he's like Jason Witten who just seemed to never get hurt, but we do have to take the potential injury risk into consideration especially considering that Kelce is a second-round pick in most fantasy drafts this season.

Even with those risks, though, Kelce is a difference-maker at a position that most teams in your league will be scrambling to find value at all season. Not having to worry about the tight end position has its own benefits from a waiver wire and FAAB standpoint so unless he gets hurt, Kelce should return value this season while giving his owners the potential of a league-winning season.

Injury Travis Kelce expected to be ready for camp
Chiefs' TE will miss minicamp
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jun 8, 9:30 am

Kansas City Chiefs
As he has throughout organized team activities, or OTAs, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce watched Thursday’s workout from the sideline. And that likely will be his vantage point when mandatory mini-camp begins next Tuesday. But coach Andy Reid said Thursday that should be the extent of Kelce’s absence. “I don’t think (he’ll participate) next week,” Reid said. “I think you’ll probably see him in training camp.” (Kansas City Star)

FFToday's Take: Kelce is roughly about five months removed from ankle surgery which put him in a boot for a few weeks afterward. Unless there's a setback Kelce should be ready to go for camp. He's in the conversation as the No.1 overall fantasy tight end along with George Kittle and Zach Ertz.
