Chiefs TE Travis Kelce's knee 'flares up every once in a while'

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce had swelling on his knee. Reid thinks he'll be fine because it flares up every once in a while.

Fantasy Impact: 

This doesn't sound like a major issue and it shouldn't deter owners from drafting Kelce in the 3rd or 4th round. After finishing #6 as a rookie and #8 as a sophomore (in PPR formats), Kelce was the top overall tight end in 2016, though he was #2 in per game average behind Rob Gronkowski. Although his usage isn't as consistent as we'd like, he's primed for another big year in Andy Reid's offense, especially with the release of Jeremy Maclin. In the five games that Maclin was either very limited or missed altogether, Kelce saw 9.0 targets per game en route to 14.9 PPG (PPR). That’s a 238-point pace, and only five tight ends have had better seasons in the last four years.
