Hit rarified rookie TE air with 1,026 rec. yards and 20% TeamTarget share, which should only rise with WRs Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage out of the picture in 2022Averaging 76.4 receiving YPG over past 4 seasons - only Travis Kelce is better (81.0)
Justin Lampkin
Clock Management Fantasy Football
Believe the hype! This man is going to break TE records for the next 10 years and I want him on my fantasy team for all of them. Pitts is the option #1 and #2.Kittle is extremely talented and a violent runner but due to his injury history and the change at QB causing questions on his usage he has dropped in my rankings.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Kyle Pitts lived up to all of the hype last season. Pitts ranked third in receiving yards and eighth in receptions among all tight ends. In deeper metrics, he was elite, ranking fourth in targets per snap and yards per route run (minimum 50 targets, per PFF). Since 2018 the only rookie tight end to finish their inaugural season with a higher yards per route run has been Albert Okwuegbunam (minimum 15 targets, per PFF). Pitts finished as the TE11 in fantasy points per game as the eyesore of only one receiving touchdown drug down his fantasy value. Pitts has TE1 overall upside if the touchdowns bounce back in a big way in 2022.George Kittle is arguably the most talented tight end in the NFL. If his health or offensive scheme would ever comply and allow him to be fed religiously, he would be the TE1 by a decent margin. Over the last three seasons, he has been the king of efficiency, leading the position in yards per route run each year and never finishing lower than third in yards after the catch per reception (minimum 50 targets, per PFF). If Trey Lance can unlock another level to this offense, Kittle can recapture the TE1 crown that he last held in 2019.
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
If Kyle Pitts' ADP is lower than it was in 2021, he will be a screaming value. At just 21 years old, Pitts finished third among tight ends in receiving yards (1,018) through 17 weeks of the season and third in route participation (80%) through 18 weeks. The rookie fell short of lofty preseason expectations, though, as he scored just one touchdown. Any other pass-catcher that compiled at least 1,000 receiving yards caught at least four touchdowns. And per PFF's expected fantasy points model, the Falcons tight end should have scored 5.6 touchdowns. With positive regression for Year 2 in his favor, draft the uber-talented Pitts aggressively everywhere in 2022.Even though George Kittle didn't feel like a great investment as an early round selection in 2021 fantasy drafts, there's no denying his finish as the TE3 in both overall points and points per game (15.0) despite playing just 13 games. The 49ers tight end finished as PFF's highest-graded tight end (91.2) and repeated as the leader in yards per route run (2.35) among all tight ends for the fourth consecutive season.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Pitts became the first rookie TE to top 1,000 receiving yards since Mike Ditka in 1961. With the Falcons punchless at WR, opponents routinely had their top CBs cover Pitts, and he produced anyway. Pitts' freakish athleticism gives him intoxicating upside. He scored only one touchdown in 2021, but the TDs will come.Injuries may be inevitable, and Kittle's excellence as a blocker might sap some of his fantasy value, but there are times when he's simply unstoppable. Derrick Henry might be the only player in the league harder.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The good news for Pitts is that he is a slam-dunk TE1 due to a 1000-yard rookie campaign, the first by a rookie tight end since Mike Ditka did that in 1961 in a 14-game schedule. The downside is Pitts scored only one touchdown, which needs to improve if he is going to be an elite fantasy tight end.Kittle was mostly healthy in 2021 and he finished the fantasy season with 920 yard from scrimmage and 6 touchdowns. Kittle should be an elite TE1 in Kyle Shanahan's offense in 2022.
