49ers tight end George Kittle started to cool down in the final weeks of the regular season and we’ll go over his viability as an option for DraftKings Daily Fantasy lineups this weekend.
Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers TE George Kittle ($6,000)
Kittle came just 90 yards short of posting another 1,000 receiving yard season but he really slowed down in production down the stretch. Over the final three games of the season, he combined for just eight catches for just 60 yards and yielded a combined 14.6 fantasy points during that period.
With Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk producing in the passing game, someone had to be the odd man out and it was Kittle.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Despite Kittle’s individual struggles, he’s always worth a start just for the potential of what he could do if he’s targeted early and often.
