NEWS: According to reports, George Kittle (foot) has a “chance” to return for Week 16 against the Cardinals.
FANTASY TAKE: It’s tough to predict this situation, so stay glued to this newswire all week. If back in that 49ers’ lineup, he is instantly a top 5TE start.
Let’s talk 2021 and Dynasty: I know most will say Kittle is top 1-2 for dynasty TEs, but I have Travis Kelce and Darren Waller ahead of him. Many will argue that Kelce is old, but with how injury-prone Kittle is, coupled with his aggressive playing style, who is to say that Kittle plays elite football longer than Kelce (if he even plays full seasons from here on out). I’m not calling Kittle a bust or an avoid, I’m just suggesting that he be properly placed in a safe place on 2021-only and dynasty rankings – that place is below Kelce and Waller.
