George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers vs. Detroit Lions
DraftKings Price: $3,800
Kittle had a solid season opener against a stout Vikings defense in Week 1 catching 9-of-10 targets for 90 yards. Kittle actually left a few plays on the field and could have had a much bigger game. Fantasy owners can’t be disappointed in the performance, however, in a week that saw the likes of Will Dissly rank as a top tight end in the league.
The value picks are loaded with 49ers this week after the Lions looked like an extremely favorable matchup after Week 1. Kittle will get a great opportunity to exploit the Lions as the favorite target of Jimmy Garoppolo. Kittle/Garoppolo stacks are a solid value play that will allow you to drop some coin on high priced talent elsewhere.
