Back in Week 14, Kittle fell five yards short of setting a single-game record at tight end. The 49ers recently released mic'd up commentary from Kyle Shanahan, who told Kittle he was "sick" about not getting him the milestone. Entering Week 17, Kittle is 99 yards shy of Rob Gronkowski's single-season record (1,327). Travis Kelce, however, is ahead of him. Matt Breida and Dante Pettis both won't play, and the Rams have relinquished 61.3 yards per game to tight ends and 98 to Kittle in Week 7. Expect a busy game from the breakout star.

Kyle Shanahan is going to do everything in his power to get George Kittle (1,228 receiving yards) the single-season record for yards by a tight end in Week 17, which was set by Rob Gronkowski (1,327) in 2011.

Kittle has been one of the bright spots on a bad 49ers offense, Kittle should be a TE1 at the Rams.
