San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) said his ankle is feeling 'fabulous' Friday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Kittle is by far the best tight end left in the playoffs, and he'll come at a steep price in DFS against the Green Bay Packers. He's worth it, too.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 16, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Huddle Up: Great news for Kittle after he sat out Wednesday's workouts with the nagging ankle injury. Unless we hear of any kind of setback later this week, count on him being good to go for Sunday afternoon's NFC title tilt.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) was held out of practice Wednesday, Jan. 15, because he was dealing with soreness in his ankle after the Divisional Round playoff game. His status for the NFC Championship game does not appear to be in question at this point.
Huddle Up: Kittle probably will be limited during practice this week but should be available to play in the NFC Championship game. He is a main part of the passing game and should be started in all fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 15.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught a career-high 13 of his 17 targets for 134 yards in Week 15 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Kittle dominated as a blocker, repeatedly stiff-armed potential tacklers and accounted for 67 percent of his team's 200 receiving yards. To put this performance in some more perspective, he was also targeted on half of Jimmy Garoppolo's pass attempts and his catch total was five more than in any other game this season. Kittle is making a strong push to be considered the best tight end in football and needs to be started everywhere he can be in Week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle caught six passes for 67 yards and a touchdown on eight targets at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: A 39-yard catch-and-run late in the game set up the Niners for the game-winning kick, and it also helped salvage an otherwise pedestrian fantasy day. Atlanta comes to town in Week 15 with the 10th-weakest defense at stopping tight end yardage in the five weeks leading up to Week 14. Carolina only added to the damage with a backup TE.
