Fantasy Impact:

Ian Rapoport adds that Kittle pushed to play on Sunday, indicating that he is close to returning. However, the team opted to hold him out for another week, especially since the team is playing on the same MetLife Stadium turf that the 49ers expressed public concerns about last week. Monitor his status this next week but look for him to return in Week 4 against the Eagles. With Kittle out, Jordan Reed should step in as the top tight end in the passing game for San Francisco.
