With the full list of 100 best players revealed, we finally got to see where Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes finished in the rankings. The list finally got it right!
Chiefs Kingdom and Patrick Mahomes can finally revel in the ranking of the best player in the game being ranked at the top of the list.
It has been a long time coming for the Chief’s QB and he has done everything to deserve his ranking, as the top 100 has been a sore spot for him. He now sits at the top of the player voted list as the greatest player currently in the league. He led the Chiefs to their best record in the history of the franchise, a second consecutive AFC Championship, and had an incredible statistical season as well.
Now he can finally add the number 1 trophy to the trophy case and try to go back-to-back in the rankings. He absolutely deserves this one and he even ranked the trophy fourth of all of the trophies earned in his career! There really is no reason to think anything less of Patrick Mahomes and this should be the first of many more trophies to add to his collection.
He wasn’t the only player to earn top-five honors, Travis Kelce came in at number 5.
The highest-ranked pass-catcher on the list was a tight end for the first time and he is the highest-ranked tight end in the history of the list. Kelce has been nothing but incredible in his career in Kansas City and even as he said in his clip, it’s so fun to see his ascension to become the top-rated player he is.
Kelce broke the single-season tight end receiving record in fifteen games in the 2020 season and had an incredible postseason run. He deserves every accolade he got last season and he would have gotten the Offensive Player of the Year if Derrick Henry didn’t rush for over 2,000 yards.
Since Kelce has ranked in the top 5, he and Patrick Mahomes are the first offensive duo to make the top five since Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown in 2017. Seeing Kelce and Mahomes among the elite of the NFL is amazing and it should be fun to see how they continue to stay in the top 10 for years to come.
