49ers | George Kittle poised to produce?

Sun, 15 Jul 2018 20:14:00 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle should have "no shortage of opportunities" in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com, and Wagoner believes Kittle will benefit from having QB Jimmy Garoppolo throwing him the ball for the entire season.

Fantasy Tip: Kittle was a surprise contributor as a rookie last year, finishing with 515 receiving yards. He managed 194 yards in the final three games, teasing what he and Garoppolo might be capable of. He's a low-end TE1 with upside.

49ers | George Kittle added more muscle

Tue, 26 Jun 2018 02:57:52 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle took steps to add more muscle mass during the offseason in hopes that it will prevent some of the injuries that bothered him throughout last season. He's also been practicing catching the ball away from his body during informal throwing sessions with QBs Jimmy Garoppolo and C.J. Beathard.

Fantasy Tip: There's no doubt Kittle has the potential to be one of the top breakout candidates at the tight end position in 2018. In his rookie campaign a year ago, he put up some respectable numbers and was more productive once Garoppolo took over under center, as Kittle registered 15 catches for 224 yards in the final five games. Now that he's fully healthy, he could build on last season.

49ers | Another full practice for George Kittle

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 17:45:34 -0800

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) practiced in full for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Kittle is typically one of the lower-end TE2 options you can have, but he is coming off his second-highest yardage total of the campaign, when he logged 52 yards on four receptions last weekend. As expected, Jimmy Garoppolo has provided a boost for everyone in the passing game, so perhaps Kittle is trending up.
