We don't know if Kittle will play just yet, but it certainly wasn't a good sign that he was ruled out days before the game against the Jets. It helps the 49ers to know that Reed can step in and play well, as he racked up seven catches for 50 yards and two touchdowns in his first full-time game since 2018. Stay tuned to the bottom of these notes as the week goes on for updates. The Giants have done a good job with tight ends over the first couple weeks, as Eric Ebron and Jimmy Graham both finished with exactly one catch for 18 yards. But that's the thing... they're Ebron and Graham, guys who haven't been fantasy producers for some time. They also saw a combined three targets, so we can't assume anything. It's a new defense under Joe Judge, so we must sit back and observe, but knowing how involved the tight ends are in this offense, it's hard to sit the starter. If Kittle is out again, Reed should be on the streaming radar as a low-end TE1. If Kittle plays, well, you're playing him. As of now, the 49ers are expecting to have Kittle back.

Jordan Reed takes advantage of opportunity, scores twice in Week 2 win

Jordan Reed hauled in seven of a team-high eight targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns during the 49ers' 31-13 victory over the Jets on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Reed surely took advantage of his increased role with George Kittle (knee) forced to miss this game as he headlined the 49ers' passing attack on Sunday. It's unclear how much longer Kittle will be out, but if he is forced to miss next week, there is no reason why Reed shouldn't be fired up as a top-15 TE with top-10 upside. It is worth mentioning that Jimmy Garappolo exited with an ankle sprain and could miss up to six weeks, leaving Nick Mullens at the helm moving forward. Fantasy managers should continue to pay close attention to Kittle's status throughout the week as Reed offers little to no fantasy value when the All-Pro TE is on the field.
