San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle recorded 621 yards after the catch during the 2019 season and was the only tight end in the NFL to recorded at least 600 yards after the catch.
Huddle Up: Kittle has been one of the main focal points in the passing game for the 49ers and may have an even bigger role early in the 2020 season because of Deebo Samuel. He should be one of the first tight ends selected in all fantasy leagues and is a must-start option.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle's depth of reception average was a career-low 5.8 yards in 2019 (following a career-high 7.3 in 2018). However, he made up for it by averaging 9.9 yards after the catch per reception in 2018 (the best mark in the league that season for a tight end with at least 40 targets) and 7.3 yards after the catch per reception in 2019 (the third-best mark for a tight end last season with at least 40 targets).

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle forced 20 missed tackles during the 2019 season, which ranked first among wide receivers and tight ends.
Huddle Up: Kittle has been one of the top tight ends in the NFL over the last several seasons and should continue to be a focal point in the passing game for the 49ers. He will be one of the first tight ends to be picked in all drafts and will be a must-start option each week.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle and the team remain far apart in contract negotiations for an extension. Kittle's agent says a 'tight-end deal' is a non-starter in those negotiations.
Huddle Up: Kittle has been named to back-to-back Pro Bowls and was an All-Pro for the first time in 2019. He has topped 1,000 yards each of the last two seasons with a total of 10 touchdowns. He remains the 49ers' clear No. 1 option in the passing game and it's safe to expect the Niners to find a way to retain his services at any cost.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle's agent says he isn't just aiming for his client to become the league's highest-paid tight end, perhaps eyeing WR2 money. 'I don't care about the tight end market,' Jack Bechta, told NFL Network recently. 'I'm being paid to do a George Kittle deal.'
Huddle Up: Kittle, who's locked in to be a top-three fantasy tight end for the third straight seasons, remains the Niners' unquestioned top offensive weapon and almost assuredly will reset the tight end market -- and beyond.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle was charged with only two drops on 107 targets in 2019. He was one of only five players in the league with at least 100 targets - regardless of position - to finish with a drop rate below two percent.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle leads all players with an average of 8.6 yards after catch per reception over the last two seasons.
Huddle Up: Kittle is hitting his prime entering his fourth season, and is an elite TE1 by almost any metric. If you're going to reach for a tight end in your fantasy draft, Kittle is a more than worthy prize.

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle's next contract will likely make him the first tight end to earn more than $13 million per year and have more than $30 million in guarantees, according to former NFL agent Joel Corry.
