49ers TE George Kittle (shoulder) was back at practice today.

Fantasy Impact:

Fann tweeted Kittle did some individual work, but wasn’t running routes yet. The hope is, at this point, he's ready to go for Week 1 but owners should continue to monitor his progress.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Kansas City Chiefs

George Kittle followed up a strong Week 1 performance with only two catches and 22 yards last week against the Lions. He was targeted four times, however, and he remains one of the best options in the 49ers passing game.

This week, Kittle has tremendous upside against a Chiefs defense that was shredded by Steelers tight end Jesse James last week for 138 yards and a touchdown. Expect a shootout and for Kittle to benefit from a pass-heavy affair. Start him.
