Where is he a GTD:....official source please?

George Kittle (knee) is questionable for Week 6 against the Packers.
Kittle is expected to play after a limited week of practice. With the 49ers down Trent Taylor and Pierre Garcon at less than 100 percent, Kittle is going to see a high target share in a game the 49ers should be playing from behind.

Shanahan said Breida and a couple of other guys are going to need Sunday and Monday to recover before they will know for certain.  Doesn't mention Kittle in that sentence.  But remember Probable is gone, now there is only Questionable, Doubtful, and Out.

 

Yes Kittle practiced this week, but he was limited in each practice.  The rw blurb that says Kittle is expected to play is unsourced.  I think this is actually a tougher call than everyone seems to think it is.

 

I was hoping Saturday's practice would seal the deal, but Kittle was limited on Saturday, as well.

Kittle playing still doesn't seem like a 50/50 thing though.  You would think he would have mentioned him if there was a decent chance of him not playing.

 

At this point, I'd rather just leave Kittle in there and if somehow he ends up not playing, then I'll just pick up Celek and throw him in there.  Even if Kittle is a little hobbled, he's still better than anything else out there that could replace him today.

Gronk put up 90 yards and 9 points in standard. Can Kittle keep up his streak and continue to outscore Gronk this week? He has outscored Gronk in standard every week except week 1, and may have also outscored Gronk in 1/2 PPR and full PPR because Gronk also isn't seeing much volume.

so does that mean we're going to know whether or not he's playing by 3:45pm (CST or PST I'm assuming..) 

We'll know if Kittle is active by then.  But we won't know if Kittle is emergency only, decoy, full, etc until the game is well underway.

This could mean Celek is out, but looks like he practiced in full Friday. Inactives are due 90 minutes before kickoff, so we'll have to keep an eye on that. 

 

If you're down a short margin in your game (like a couple points) I'd pick up Celek if you have anyone you don't care to drop. The minute Mahomes hit Hill on that last bomb it put me down 1.6 and I picked up Celek just to ensure I have someone playing tonight. Not sure he can even get that though. Bummer.
