SF TE George Kittle - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Arizona Cardinals

George Kittle hasn’t done much this season, including just four catches and 40 yards last week against the Seahawks, but he’s still getting looks. He’s had 20 targets over the past two games and remains a primary focal point of the offense. He’s such a reliable receiving option, it’s hard to think a shift in quarterback would hurt him, so fantasy managers should feel comfortable continuing to start him regardless of whether Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance are under center.

This week, he’ll face a Cardinals defense that ranks third in aFPA to opposing tight ends. That’s a scary matchup, and it has us ranking him just outside our top five for the week, but he’s still worth starting at a very thin position. Watch his status as it gets closer to game-time though. He was nicked up with a calf issue going into the game, and he’s questionable to start next week. Be ready with a backup plan in case he’s a late scratch, but if he’s active, start him.

UPDATE: Kittle is out for at least the next three weeks, so look elsewhere. I wouldn't consider Ross Dwelley a viable option either.
