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.

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.
