This is a bummer for the team and fantasy purposes, as this impacts the playoff implications for both facets. If you don't have an IR spot, it may be a waste of a spot for Deebo if he isn't going to return before Week 17.
SF TE George Kittle - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 3 vs. New York Giants
George Kittle hasn’t put up much in the way of fantasy points through two games this season, but it’s good to see him healthy. He’s had three catches in each game, with a grand total of just 49 yards on the season. Still, the late-season rapport he developed with Brock Purdy in 2022 should prove fruitful sooner or later, so fantasy managers shouldn’t panic just yet.
This week, Kittle has a nice matchup against the Giants, who are struggling on both sides of the ball. They allowed 88 yards and eight receptions to the tight end position a week ago. Tight ends are tough to find with consistency in the fantasy realm, so keep starting Kittle as a top-10 option, given his usage. While he had only three targets last week, he had six in Week 1.
Update: With Brandon Aiyuk not expected to play, Kittle should benefit with additional looks.
