NEWS: George Kittle (foot) will play against the Cardinals in Week 16, and he has been activated from injured reserve.
FANTASY TAKE: This is a tricky one, as George Kittle could be on a big snap count in this Week 16 match-up against the Cards, and the 49ers have little to play for. It would almost be reckless to force Kittle into his usual volume under the circumstances, so it is extremely tough suggesting that fantasy owners consider him over options like Noah Fant or TJ Hockenson. Even a Robert Tonyan could hold safer value over Kittle, but one could easily argue that Kittle still deserves the upside consideration once you get down to that Tonyan or Hunter Henry level. If you have a dilemma, post it below. The real question is surrounding next year… is Kittle #2? Or, has Darren Waller moved ahead of Kittle to be the #2 behind Travis Kelce?
Let’s talk 2021 and Dynasty: From a dynasty angle, I recently cranked out this video below on the topic of both 2021 and dynasty tight ends, and it may shock many to see Travis Kelce and Darren Waller as my #1 and #2 TE in all formats… Kittle still rolls in at the #3 spot, but his injury history and aggressive play have me cautious heading into this off-season. I worry that talent, like with Odell Beckham, will have us keep investing high, and injury could be waiting for us every single season. Watch this video on my 2021-only and dynasty tight ends:
