He had chances. Jimmy looks for him and they draw up plays for him. Had a few missed opportunities today and a few PI calls. I think this was his floor.

Agreed...the TE position is sort of like this anyway & by all accounts, Kittle had a sure TD taken when he beat a defender & said defender had to grab on to prevent the score. Three for 40 with a score looks a helluva lot better than two for 22 and nada. 

 

I take solace in the fact that Kittle will be a part of the every-week gameplan from here on out as long as he's healthy. He will be an insta-start for me next week at KC.

Hmm? Kittle is a top TE he should have been drafted and still rostered even 10 teamers. 

Then why is the last couple pages people talking about their waiver claim and faab spending?

 

Gronk

Kelce

Ertz

Olson

Engram

Graham

Walker

Burton

Rudolph

Reed

Cook

 

These guys probably went in front of Kittle in 90% of drafts, don't act like Kittle was universally owned or even should have been owned.

Jared...Cook???  Wow.  

Sharps knew Kittle would be a very valuable TE commodity this year.

Should we be looking for another TE now that Garoppolo is highly likely done for the year?  Would be a shame too since he had a really nice bounceback game after last week's stinker.

I was planning to start Kittle next week due to byes.... I think I'm going to grab something else off the waiver.  I really need to see one game with a new QB before I could think about starting him.

Well, I mean the backup qb played with Kittle in college and last year...Im sticking with Kittle, there is nothing better on the wire unless you play in 6 team leagues.

Good luck with that. Unless you're playing in a shallow league I don't think you're going to find a better option than Kittle at this point. Like another poster said, a QB off the bench often looks to his TE as a security blanket.

His outlook is definitely dampened but its still a very weak position so there's no way you should be dropping.

I think losing Jimmy G would make Kittle a very strong "sell high" candidate.

Not so fast my friend (in my best Lee Corso voice)

 

Kittle & CJ Beathard were college teammates & roommates at Iowa. There is a rapport there that will either manifest itself right off the bat or it won't.  They hooked up for a TD this past week after Garoppolo went down--got called back on an offensive interference call on Juszczyk or whatever his name is.  So I think Kittle's value is relatively unchanged...

The offense will be worse though. And scoring opportunities down. Going to the backup QB isn't always a benefit for a TE. I think Kittle will be more inconsistent and his chances for TDs goes down.

Yes, I do agree with you on that...targets/receptions/yards may look similar but SF definitely won't be extending drives & getting into the red zone as often.

That offense wasn’t anything special to begin with, Jimmy was being overrated going into this season

Kittle was probably drafted as a late round flyer in most leagues. There are higher profile TE's that aren't producing or have gone down like Delanie, Olsen, Engram, or Burton. Even Gronk. Now Kittle probably loses his starting QB and the offense will be worse. I think there is a window right now.

 

The alternative is you hold on to Kittle and ride the roller coaster. I could be way off and he finishes the season very strong. But the odds aren't in his favor.

This is what I like to hear.

 

Devastater should reread this.

 

Beathard will likely be using Kittle as a crutch.

I don't even have to start Kittle unless Gronk goes down or Gronk is on bye. I drafted Kittle as insurance or to trade.

 

I just think there is a strong argument to sell high on Kittle if the 49ers lose Jimmy G. It is worth considering.
