You have to give Kittle a ton of credit for what he did in 2018. He played with a combination of Jimmy Garoppolo, C.J. Beathard, and Nick Mullens, yet managed to set the yardage record for a tight end. Getting Garoppolo back for the full season should help, but he may lose a few targets considering Dante Pettis is now in a starting role, while the 49ers drafted Deebo Samuel in the second-round and Jalen Hurd in the third-round. He's still a force to be reckoned with and one of the three tight ends worth a pick in the first three rounds.

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.
