Catches three balls in playoff loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-29

Kittle caught three of four targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 31-7 NFC Championship Game loss to Philadelphia.

San Francisco's passing offense went by the wayside following injuries to both of its active quarterbacks, resulting in no receiver finishing with more than 33 yards in the one-sided loss. Kittle got off to a slow start in 2022 after getting injured late in camp, but a second-half surge resulted in a strong 60-765-11 receiving line over 15 active regular-season games. The 29-year-old remains under contract with the 49ers for the 2023 campaign, but it is unclear who will be delivering balls to the athletic tight end, with Trey Lance (ankle), Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) and Brock Purdy (elbow) all finishing this season injured. Kittle no longer is in Travis Kelce's tier of fantasy tight ends, but he still should be one of the first options taken off the board in drafts next season.

Delivers in divisional win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-22

Kittle had five receptions on as many targets for 95 yards in Sunday's 19-12 divisional-round win over the Cowboys.

Kittle bounced back from a mediocre showing in the wild-card round (2-37-0) to lead his team in receiving en route to another playoff win. The eccentric tight end made the highlight play on San Francisco's game-winning drive in the fourth quarter when he volleyed a deep pass multiple times to himself before securing it for a huge gain. Christian McCaffrey capped off the lengthy drive with a touchdown run, effectively advancing the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game against the Eagles. Kittle will look to take advantage of Philadelphia's undersized linebacking unit next Sunday.

Used as blocker in second half

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-14

Kittle caught both of his targets for 37 yards in Saturday's 41-23 playoff win over the Seahawks.

Kittle recorded a couple of nice receptions, but he ultimately disappointed from a fantasy perspective with the low volume. The star tight end was asked to stay back as a blocker to help a struggling offensive line Saturday, resulting in the low target share. Kittle was Brock Purdy's favorite target down the stretch of the regular season when the duo connected for seven scores over a four-game stretch, so there is still big-game potential heading into the divisional round.

Finishes season with 11 TDs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-08

Kittle had four receptions (six targets) for 29 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-13 win over Arizona.

Kittle continued his late-season scoring flurry with two more trips to the end zone, cracking the double-digit touchdown mark for the first time in his career. It wasn't all roses for the exuberant tight end in 2022, as he missed the first two games of the year due to injury, then struggled to produce consistently until the second half of the season. Fantasy managers who were able to withstand Kittle's early-season woes were rewarded handsomely during the fantasy playoff period with a whopping seven touchdowns over the final four weeks of the season. Kittle will likely be priced at a premium in DFS formats when San Francisco begins postseason play next week.

Stays hot with ninth TD

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-01

Kittle caught four of eight targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-34 overtime win over the Raiders.

Las Vegas' defense did a good job limiting Kittle to a 50 percent catch rate and his second lowest receiving total of the season. The star tight end still rewarded fantasy managers with a short score in the second quarter, his fifth touchdown in his last three games. Kittle and the surging 49ers will look to take advantage of a struggling Cardinals unit next Sunday, a team the tight end burned for 84 yards and two scores back in Week 11.
