We saw the chemistry starting to develop between Kittle and Jimmy Garoppolo towards the end of the season, where Kittle hauled in 11 passes for 194 yards and a touchdown over the final three games. Knowing that the starting wide receivers are Pierre Garcon, Marquise Goodwin, and Trent Taylor, who are all 6-foot or shorter, Garoppolo is going to need a big red zone threat. When it comes to tight ends, you're going to need those touchdowns, and Kittle just might deliver. It's a bummer to hear that he separated his shoulder in the first preseason game, which could limit his potential early in the season should the injury linger.

George Kittle injury not serious

George Kittle is not believed to have suffered a serious injury after landing awkwardly on his shoulder in Thursday’s preseason opener.

Fantasy Impact

Kittle left the game, but the thought now is that he most likely suffered a sprain that will keep him out a couple of weeks. Fantasy players should breathe a sigh of relief. Kittle is one of the best late round tight end picks this season.
