As the 2020 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
Kittle ranked among the top three tight ends each of the past two years but still sports upside. Kittle’s average depth of target dipped from 7.7 in 2018 to just 6.1 last year. His percentage of deep targets (20-plus yards downfield) also dipped, according to Pro Football Focus. Increasing those numbers would add high-value opportunities. In the red zone, Kittle just needs better luck. He tied for eighth-most targets inside the 10-yard line last year but just 48th-most touchdowns.

Bye Week: 11
If things break right for Kittle, he could outscore Travis Kelce. He makes sense in Round 2 in most fantasy formats.
