After missing two games with an MCL sprain in his knee, tight end George Kittle will be back in action on Sunday night when the 49ers take on the Eagles. If you’re wondering whether or not Kittle belongs in your fantasy lineups this week, the short answer is obviously yes.
Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers TE George Kittle
Kittle got one game in this season before injuries sidelined him. But he’s been trending in the right direction for two weeks now, and finally declared himself ready to go this week. He practiced in full on Wednesday and Thursday too.
It’s going to be Nick Mullens at quarterback again this week, but the two players have had the chance to practice together with the first team. More importantly, the fact that Kittle was able to practice at 100 percent this week is a good sign that he won’t be limited in this one by a nagging injury. All that points to him returning to his must-start status in fantasy. He’s just too talented to leave on the bench.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start George Kittle.
