Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Patriots have held Darren Waller to 2-9 and Travis Kelce to 3-70 already this season. George Kittle might be disappointing this week. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Kittle is arguably the most athletic TE in the league, and his ability after the catch is unmatched. He's gone for at least 100 yards in two of his last three games, and despite a tough matchup with New England, he's a weekly top-2 option. Set and forget. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kittle's a locked-in TE1 every single week, but his ceiling may be capped in this game. Expect the Patriots to try and slow down Kittle as much as they can and force Jimmy G to throw the ball elsewhere. It probably won't work and Kittle will still get open, but he likely doesn't have as high of a ceiling as he has in other matchups this year. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's either totaled exactly 44 yards and no touchdown, or he's posted 100-plus yards and a touchdown. There's been no in-between. Kittle is front-and-center of this offense and everyone knows it, though no one has been able to stop it. This is the third straight year he's averaged 9.8 or more yards per target. Will Bill Belichick have the answer? The Patriots actually rank No. 1 in the Football Outsiders DVOA metric that takes level of competition into consideration. Through five games, they've allowed just 200 yards to the tight end position, which ranks as the third-lowest mark in all of football. They've played against Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, and Mike Gesicki, yet no tight end has walked out of the game with more than three receptions. Now that's a crazy stat. It's worth noting that none of them saw more than six targets, so the way they're scheming against tight ends must be working. Kittle has never played against the Patriots, so it's tough to say how we should feel about it. What I can tell you is that over the last six times they've played Kelce, he hasn't topped more than 13.6 PPR points, so while you're playing Kittle in redraft leagues, maybe you shouldn't be paying up in DFS cash lineups. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Even with all the quarterback issues in San Fran, Kittle is averaging a very healthy 16.7 fantasy points per game. Kittle is an elite TE1, even against the Patriots 5th ranked fantasy tight end defense.
