However, this time, it seems Kelce has some other names to offer under the best players’ list.

In the latest episode of the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast, Travis Kelce was asked who his top three dangerous weapons of the league are. The 34-year-old Kansas City Chiefs tight end first picked out Tyreek Hill, saying, “I saw I was saying it from the day that he got here in Kansas City like if you don’t have this guy on your fantasy team, you need to get pick him up right now… the most electrifying player I’ve ever played with or ever seen with the ball in his hands… he’s always been up here as No. 1 weapon the NFL has ever seen.

After naming Hill, Kelce found it hard to pick other names, interestingly forgetting his team’s quarterback, Patrick Mahomes. After a pause, he called out the names of George Kittle and Mark Andrews, describing them as the other best of the league currently and praising their running and passing game plays.

And he shows it every time.
