George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers
The preseason breakout buzz around Kittle was delivered upon against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, with five catches (on nine targets) for 90 yards.
But those four unfulfilled targets included a dropped deep ball, an overthrow by Jimmy Garoppolo when Kittle was wide open and a missed opportunity for a touchdown.
A shoulder injury early in the preseason led to fantasy owners jumping off the Kittle bandwagon, or avoiding him in draft all together. But now’s the time to get back aboard, as a potential TE1 is fairly widely available on the fantasy football waiver wire. Especially if you are an owner of Delanie Walker, who is likely out for the season with a leg injury.
