  • George Kittle Ruled Out Against Jets

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle (knee) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Jets. Kittle suffered a knee sprain in the Week 1 loss to the Cardinals and will rest up for a week. The All-Pro tight end is a must-start each and every week, but his fantasy managers will have to pivot and go in another direction in Week 2. Jordan Reed could be an intriguing name to monitor as a one-week play at the position in DFS and deeper leagues, especially with Deebo Samuel (foot) still out. In the passing game, Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis, rookie Brandon Aiyuk and Trent Taylor could all benefit against New York, while running back Jerick McKinnon is also worth a look in deep PPR formats.

  • George Kittle A Must-Start If He's Active In Week 2

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle (knee) is currently questionable for Week 2 against the New York Jets. Kittle injured his knee midway through Week 1 and finished the game with a disappointing line of four catches for 44 yards. Kittle isn't expected to practice at all this week, but the team remains hopeful he can go in Week 2 regardless. If he's active, fantasy owners should start him and hope for the best, knowing what kind of upside he can provide. If he's out, Jordan Reed is a potential dart throw starting option in deep leagues.

  • George Kittle Won't Practice This Week

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle (knee) will not practice this week because of his knee injury, but the Niners remain hopeful that he will play in Week 2 against the Jets. Kittle is battling a sprained knee, but as of right now, fantasy managers should expect him to be out there this Sunday. It's definitely something to watch for the elite tight end, though. Kittle had four catches on five targets for 44 yards in the season-opening loss to the Cardinals, which is a very below-average game for his standards. Gang Green was one of the better defenses against opposing tight ends in 2019. Kittle remains a top-tier, must-start fantasy tight end as long as he's active. If for some reason he doesn't play, Jordan Reed and Ross Dwelley would battle for playing time at the position.

  • George Kittle Held To 44 Receiving Yards In Week 1

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle had an underwhelming debut to the 2020 season. He caught four of his five targets for 44 yards and also added a nine-yard rush in the 49ers' 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kittle briefly left the game late in the second quarter after injuring his leg and didn't catch a single pass afterwards, though after the game he declared that he was 100%. Despite the disappointing results, Kittle still tied for the team-lead in both targets and receptions and was second on the team in receiving yards. He's the clear focal point of the team's passing game and will most certainly reward his fantasy owners with better production going forward.

  • George Kittle Should Have A Monster Week 1

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle is in a perfect position to start the 2020 season off with a bang. The 49ers are plagued with injuries at receiver right now. Both Deebo Samuel (foot) and Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) are questionable for the game. Whether or not Samuel and Aiyuk play, expect to see quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo pepper Kittle with targets all day against an extremely generous Arizona Cardinals pass defense. Kittle should see double-digit targets in the game and given the Cardinals' struggles against the pass last year, that could easily turn into a 100-yard game with a score, if not more.

  • George Kittle Could Be Lining Up In Backfield Often

    Due to the San Francisco 49ers' offensive line woes, star tight end George Kittle could see himself lining up in the backfield often to start the year. This would help give the team a boost in pass protection, with Kittle's blocking ability a big step up from the team's running backs. On the surface, this might sound like bad news for Kittle as he could be lining up on the outside a bit less as a result, giving him less potential for larger gains. However, it could also result in an increase in short dump-off plays involving Kittle, which would increase his PPR potential. For now, it's mostly just speculation given the 49ers' personnel. Keep an eye on his snap distribution in Week 1, but don't adjust your ranking or valuation of Kittle due to the potential development.
