George Kittle was instrumental in the San Francisco 49ers' resounding 30-12 victory over the New York Giants in Week 3. The 29-year-old tight end was a reliable receiver, hauling in seven of his nine targets for a solid 90-yard performance.
Although he didn't find the end zone, his consistent yardage contributions undoubtedly helped fantasy managers in PPR formats. After two lackluster games to start the year, Kittle managers finally received a taste of what they were looking for when they drafted him in the top 5 TEs. Looking ahead, Kittle's volume of targets suggests he'll continue to be a key part of the 49ers' offensive strategy. Next week's matchup against the Arizona Cardinals should provide another opportunity for him to rack up points, and it's only a matter of time before he starts finding paydirt.
