George Kittle sets NFL record with 1,377 receiving yards

George Kittle finished the season in the NFL record books by accumulating 1,377 receiving yards, the most in a single-season by a tight end. He broke the record with his ninth catch of the day going for a 43-yard catch-and-run touchdown and finishing the game with 149 yards.

Fantasy Impact

The second-year tight end is making his case to be the top player at his position heading into 2019. He finished the season with more yards after the catch than any other player in the entire NFL and will be playing in his first career Pro Bowl. This was done with three different QBs (Garoppolo, Beathard, and Mullens) and at just 25 years old, he should be a dominate force for the forseeable future. Assuming the team improves around him next season, that should only help his stock. Don't expect any discounts come draft day in 2019.

George Kittle posts 74 yards on 12 targets in Week 16

George Kittle caught seven passes for 74 yards as the 49ers fell to the Bears 14-9 in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

Kittle once again led the team in targets, catches, and yards. He's the only 49er who can be trusted in fantasy these days. The 25-year-old will be a top-three tight end in 2019 drafts next summer.

George Kittle totals 51 yards in fantasy semi-finals

George Kittle caught three passes for 51 yards in the 49ers' 26-23 overtime win over the Seahawks in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Kittle had caught at least four passes in every game since Week 2, so it's a bit of a letdown performance for the fantasy playoffs. Still, he's been a top-three option at tight end all year. Kittle also nearly had a long touchdown that Nick Mullens overthrew him on. The 49ers host the Bears in Week 16.

George Kittle erupts in Week 14 win

George Kittle caught seven passes for 210 yards and a touchdown in San Francisco's 20-14 Week 14 win over the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Incredibly, Kittle did all of his damage in the first half. He ended up five yards short of the single game record for his position, and today's performance made him the first ever 1,000-yard tight end in 49ers history. Kittle is a clear top-three fantasy option behind only Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz. The 49ers host the Seahawks in Week 15.

George Kittle totals 70 yards in Week 13 loss

George Kittle hauled in six catches for 70 yards in San Francisco's 43-16 Week 13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

It's the eighth time this season Kittle has gone for at least 70 yards in a game. He will remain a no-brainer top four tight end play in Week 14 versus Denver.
