George Kittle News
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle said he suffered "fractured cartilage" in his ribs early in the game against the Raiders last year but played through it. San Fran played Oakland on Nov. 1, so that means Kittle played around half the season after suffering that injury. The second-year professional had a truly breakout season, catching 88 passes for 1,377 yards and five touchdowns for the Niners. With quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo back healthy in 2019, the sky is the limit for Kittle. He'll likely be the third tight end off the board behind Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz in fantasy.
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.
San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle amassed 210 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions in Week 14s victory over the Denver Broncos. Kittle was on fire in the first half, repeatedly ripping chunk gains. He was left wide open in the second quarter for an 85-yard score. Oddly, the entirety of Kittles damage was inflicted before halftime. Needing only five yards to break the single-game record for tight ends, Kittle didnt touch the ball once in the second half. His disappearance was a letdown in an otherwise monster day. Kittle surpassed 1,000 yards on the season with his big game and has emerged as a top-3 tight end. Hell be an obvious TE1 in Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks.
