UPDATE: It was a quiet fantasy football performance for George Kittle in Week 13. He finished the day with two receptions of four targets for 17 receiving yards, good for 3.4 DraftKings fantasy points. Kittle and the 49ers travel to face the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. The Saints have given up the ninth fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season.
The San Francisco 49ers are getting a big effort from running back Raheem Mostert and wide receiver Deebo Samuel in Week 13 vs. the Baltimore Ravens, but start tight end George Kittle has been quiet. He has been a key blocker, but he has been held catchless through the first half.
Kittle was targeted once in the half but it was incomplete. His focus has been blocking, where he has been key in opening lanes for Mostert. The 49ers backup running back leads the team with 89 rushing yards on six carries and has a touchdown to boot. Samuel leads the team with 41 receiving yards and a touchdown on two receptions.
The 49ers trail the Ravens 17-14 at the half with Baltimore set to get the ball back to open the third quarter. It’s safe to say the 49ers will need more production from Kittle in the passing game if they want to hang with the Ravens high-flying offensive attack.
