San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle racked up 149 yards and a touchdown on nine catches in Week 17 against the Los Angeles Rams. Kittle made history by setting the single-season yardage record for tight ends with 1,377 yards. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce broke the record just earlier in the day but Kittle usurped him with a late 43-yard grab which he raced for his fifth score. With the phenomenal season, Kittle was likely a common denominator on many fantasy championship teams. Now that the secrets out on the 25-year-old, hell be a locked-in top-3 tight end option heading into 2019.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle collected seven balls on 12 targets for 74 yards in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears. His targets led the team and Kittle was able to consistently find holes in the daunting Chicago Bears secondary, including a long grab of 35 yards on the day. However, the Niners were shut down in the second half as the Bears dominated time of possession, limiting opportunities for Kittle and all other skill players. The second-year stud now has 79 catches for 1,228 yards on the season to accompany four touchdowns. Hes become a no-brainer top-three TE1 and will look to finish 2018 on a high note when the 49ers take on the Los Angeles Rams in Week 17.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle grabbed three balls for 51 yards in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks. Kittle led the team with eight targets but the Seahawks were successful in containing the breakout second-year stud. Kittle also yielded two catches and a score to fellow tight end Garrett Celek while quarterback Nick Mullens barely missed him for a likely long touchdown. Even with the quiet game, Kittle is up to 1,154 receiving yards on the season. Hes been targeted at least eight times in five straight games and has surpassed 50 yards in 11 contests this season. The Niners draw the top-ranked Chicago Bears defense in Week 16 but Kittle has proven to be a matchup-proof TE1.
