49ers' George Kittle: Contained by Seahawks defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle caught three of eight targets for 51 receiving yards during Sunday's 26-23 overtime win against Seattle.

Kittle has blossomed in his second season out of Iowa, entering Sunday just 117 yards behind Travis Kelce for the league lead at the position. Seattle has excelled at defending tight ends all year -- ranking fourth-best in both catches and receiving yards allowed. That trend persisted in Week 15, as Kittle was contained to his second-lowest receiving output since Oct. 15, and his fewest number of receptions since Week 2. The fantasy playoff slate doesn't get any easier for those who have been leaning on Kittle's bountiful production all season, as San Francisco takes on Chicago's No. 3 scoring defense in Week 16 before closing out the year on the road against Seattle (both remaining opponents ranked top-10 in tight end receiving yards allowed entering Sunday).

49ers' George Kittle: Record-setting performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle brought in seven of nine targets for 210 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' 20-14 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Kittle enjoyed arguably the most spectacular halves of football for any tight end in NFL history, and he became the first 49ers tight end to ever reach the 1,000-yard mark on the season. Additionally, he fell just five yards short of eclipsing Shannon Sharpe's NFL single-game record for receiving yards by a tight end. The second-year pro notched an 85-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter, putting his game-breaking speed on display downfield. The 25-year-old has seen no fewer than nine targets in any of his last four games, and he'll look to continue his excellent stretch of play against the Seahawks in Week 15.

49ers' George Kittle: Makes six grabs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle caught six of nine passing attempts for 70 yards in Sunday's 43-16 loss to the Seahawks.

Kittle tied for the team lead in targets but finished third in receiving yards in the contest, as Dante Pettis and Jeff Wilson both had big games. The Iowa product was also held out of the end zone for the third straight game, matching his longest drought of the year. Nevertheless, Kittle remains a top-tier tight end and will look to break that streak with a nice Week 14 matchup at home against Denver.

49ers' George Kittle: Downturn in production during loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle brought in six of 12 targets for 48 yards in the 49ers' 27-9 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Kittle padded his line some in the second half, but his overall production had to be considered somewhat of a disappointment considering the 49ers were missing both Marquise Goodwin (personal) and Pierre Garcon (knee). The second-year tight end's reception total did lead the team on the afternoon, and it equaled his second-highest tally of the season. Kittle will look to up his numbers in a Week 13 matchup against the Seahawks.

49ers' George Kittle: Catches nine passes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle caught nine of 10 targets for 83 yards in Monday night's 27-23 loss to the Giants.

Kittle was clearly quarterback Nick Mullens' security blanket, hauling in just about everything thrown his way. In doing so, he led the Niners in all the major receiving categories, which has become a foregone conclusion over the course of this season. With at least 75 yards in seven (of 10) outings thus far, Kittle will now use San Francisco's bye to help his prior chest contusion heal before facing Tampa Bay in Week 12.
