Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kelce has finished as the TE2 or better the last four seasons. Yes, you read that correctly. Even without Patrick Mahomes at QB, Kelce's been getting the job done for fantasy football and there's very little reason to doubt that he's going to finish as a top-2 option again this season. If you don't want to play the late-round TE guessing game, Kelce's an extremely smart selection at his current ADP.Waller was one of last year's breakout stars and he helped propel several rosters to fantasy football championships. Now, his price tag has certainly gone up and you're betting on that production repeating this season. Waller certainly has more competition for targets so he could see his total from last year drop down, but he absolutely could make up for it with an increase in touchdown production. Waller's a fine selection in the mid-rounds, but he may not possess as high of a ceiling as he did last year.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Has finished as No. 1 TE in FAN PTS 4 straight seasons, is tied to perhaps the NFL's top offense and has shown no signs of slowing down 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 He had a special season last year that was replicated by only 4 TEs in the last 20 years.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's now been four straight seasons where Kelce has finished with 1,000-plus yards. He's as safe as they come and should still be in the prime of his career at 30 years old. Patrick Mahomes took a step back in terms of touchdown percentage in 2019, but could very well bounce back to elite levels in 2020, giving Kelce consideration as a second-round pick in fantasy drafts. If you have "your guys" in the middle rounds, Kelce makes sense as an early-round pick. He's now posted TE1-type numbers in 28-of-32 games over the last two years. It also helps when you see 41.4 percent of your team's targets inside the 10-yard line, like Kelce did in 2019.There was just one tight end in all of football who finished all 16 games with at least 7.0 PPR points. It was Waller. Not only that, but he also offered a ceiling, hitting 16-plus points on five separate occasions. The issue with relying on that again is the new competition for targets. As much as we don't want to consider Jason Witten a threat, he's going to steal some targets. Not just him, but Henry Ruggs, Lynn Bowden, and Bryan Edwards are all guys who'll demand some sort of target share. I still view Waller as a top-five tight end, though he's teetering there.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Kelce has now been a top two fantasy tight end in each of the past four seasons including #1 last year. There is no reason to expect that to change anytime soon considering Kansas City did not add to the stable of pass catchers. You can bet he will be off the board by the end of round two and more than likely, he will return value.Waller was extremely consistent last year and managed to finish #4 among fantasy tight ends but he was virtually the only receiving threat on the entire team. Now that they grabbed three quality wideouts in the draft, his target share should take a big of a step back. Even so, he is one of the few reliable tight ends.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Kelce is still the best fantasy tight end in the league playing on an explosive Chiefs offense. He finished the 2019 season with 1,233 yards from scrimmage and 6 touchdowns.Waller had 1,150 yards from scrimmage and 3 touchdowns, he established himself as the top playmaker in the Raiders passing game and he should have another big season in 2020.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 Slightly worried about his involvement when additional weapons arrive but that's a future worry. Took advantage of his opportunities in 2019.
