Ask the Expert Question: After one week of preseason games, which player or players that you saw in action are you most excited about or disappointed in?

After one week of preseason games, which player or players that you saw in action are you most excited about or disappointed in?

One impressed and one depressed. Put Travis Kelce (KC) on your cheat sheets as a TE2 to draft with the last pick in a 12 team league. The 6’ 5” player from Cincinnati missed all of his rookie season last year with a knee injury. I like his size and red zone potential on a team with few receiving weapons. He showed his speed against the Bengals with a 69 yard TD. On the other side, Eli Manning has not impressed me. I expected a bounce back year with his new OC and the West Coast Scheme they plan to run, but two games from Eli and the Giants have left me depressed about the QB2 I drafted late in a ton of leagues early this year. Granted it is still early, but if I do not see something in week 3 Eli drops even further down my rankings despite an easy starting schedule.
