After spending all of last season on injured reserve and dealing with a knee injury that many though could jeopardize his playing career, Chiefs TE Travis Kelce finally showed a glimpse of his potential in the Chiefs' preseason opener. The athletic Kelce got loose over the middle, hauled in a pass and then out-ran the entire Bengals secondary on what turned into a 69-yard touchdown reception.
It was exactly the kind of play the Chiefs envisioned Kelce making when he was chosen in the third round out of Cincinnati. And it was why the fans Saturday were cheering him on.
''I think everyone is extremely happy for Travis. The guy's been through a lot,'' quarterback Alex Smith said. ''It's been a long time since he's seen some action, but everyone can verify, the guy never leaves the facility.
Kelce is ranked just 28th on our list but is trending upward and is certainly a guy to keep an eye on. He may not reach the draftable zone in 10-team, typical leagues by the time your draft takes place, but he's a name you want to remember.
