Shark Bites

3:45pm EDT 10/16/21

The 49ers have placed TE George Kittle on IR for the calf injury that already had him doubtful against the Cardinals. With a Week 6 bye mixed in, Kittle now can’t return until Week 9 at the earliest. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Sam Francisco expects him to be ready then. We’ll see whether any Niners TE becomes fantasy viable in his absence. No Kittle should leave more target share for the WRs, though

Recent Shark Bites

49ers TE George Kittle showed progress with 5 catches for 47 yards in Week 5 at Carolina. He made a few impressive contested catches, although he did lose one fumble. His 6 targets ranked 2nd on the team and represented a decent 20% team share. The veteran entered Sunday with only 50 yards on 6 catches across his first 2 appearances. A low-volume passing game will keep the volatility high going forward, but we’re still likely to see some spike weeks soon. Week 6 turns up a positive scoring matchup at Atlanta.

49ers TE George Kittle managed only 24 yards on 2 catches in a Week 4 win over the Rams. His 4 targets tied for 2nd on the team and represented a lackluster 14.8% share. Kittle nearly scored, but he couldn’t quite get his 2nd foot down in bounds. So, we’re looking at 2 duds in 2 appearances for the veteran. He at least ran a route on ~86% of Jimmy Garoppolo’s dropbacks — but clearly, we’re headed for volatility with the run-heavy 49ers.

49ers TE George Kittle made his season debut Week 3 at Denver but managed only 4 catches for 28 yards. He saw 5 targets — a 17.2% share — and posted a strong 82% route rate. Brighter days are ahead for Kittle, assuming he can dodge further injury woes. Next up is a meeting with the Rams.

49ers TE George Kittle (groin) isn't listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday and a full practice on Friday, so it looks like he's ready for a full workload against the Broncos on Sunday night. See where Kittle sits in the Week 3 TE Rankings.

49ers TE George Kittle (groin) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We're tentatively expecting him to make his 2022 debut against the Broncos on Sunday night, but check back tomorrow for another update.
