San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle has had an inconsistent season this year. He’s had many more quiet weeks than big weeks, however. A big issue is how many weapons they have. I don't think he cares much as long as they’re winning. We take a look at his Week 15 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks and what it means for fantasy football start/sit decision-making.

Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers TE George Kittle

In 11 games, Kittle has 42 receptions for 500 yards and four touchdowns. It looks like it'll be a down year for him based on what he did in previous years. But his ability to block in the run game is incredible, so he’s still had a big impact on this offense. With Deebo Samuel out, they could target Kittle more.

There have been struggles for the Seahawks' defense as of late. They’re coming off a loss to the Carolina Panthers where they allowed 30 points, which is crazy. They’re allowing 218.2 passing yards per game which ranks 18th in the NFL. By DraftKings fantasy scoring, they are allowing 13.4 points to tight ends which is the second most in the NFL. Kittle is in for a big week.

Start or sit in Week 15?

In both season-long fantasy and DFS, Kittle should start.
