Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections

Season Projections
Kittle took a small step backwards statistically last season mainly because of a painful knee injury (two games missed), but that didn't stop him from compiling 1,000-plus receiving yards and five scoring grabs for the second straight season (averages of 5.8 catches and 82 receiving yards per contest) to finish as the third-most productive fantasy tight end in both non-PPR and one-point PPR scoring formats. He has crossed the regular-season finish line as a top-three fantasy tight end in consecutive campaigns. The complete package at the position, Kittle, who turns just 27 in October, owns some seam-stretching 4.52 jets (he sometimes lines up in the slot), dependable hands and fantastic run-after-the-catch ability. Although the 49ers have bolstered what was a weak collection of wideouts last season, Kittle, who is Jimmy Garoppolo's favorite target, will remain the key cog in their passing attack. Kittle has paced San Francisco in targets two straight seasons but has struggled in the red zone, catching just nine of 19 targets inside the 10-yard line (four receptions were touchdowns). However, five of his last 10 scoring grabs came from 30-plus yards, so Kittle has more potential than the other tight ends to score longer-range touchdowns. The tough-as-nails Kittle has missed only three regular-season contests in three seasons, but he's usually a regular on the weekly injury report, frequently playing through nagging ailments. If you miss out on Travis Kelce (Chiefs), Kittle is a nice consolation prize.
