    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (hip) is expected to be active Thursday, Sept. 21, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Kittle has yet to prove he deserves to be a TE1 in the first two games of his career, although he has been slowed by the injury. Keep him on the bench for now.

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (hamstring, calf) was able to practice in full Friday, Sept. 15, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 2 game with the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: The rookie out of Iowa debuted with five receptions and 27 yards on six targets last week against Carolina. At this point, despite his starting status in San Francisco, he is a low-end TE2 in most fantasy formats.

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle opened with five receptions for 27 yards in Week 1 against the Panthers on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Kittle ascended to the top of the depth chart in training camp and the preseason, but he was a question mark for the opener due to a hamstring issue. That injury was not a problem and Kittle was fairly productive for fantasy owners in deeper PPR formats. He'll look to build upon his performance heading into Week 2 at Seattle.

    San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6, after aggravating his hamstring injury, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

    Huddle Up: Kittle has quickly taken over the reins at tight end after the trade of Vance McDonald to the Steelers. The rookie has shown promise in his first offseason and is essentially free as a late-round backup tight end.

    San Francisco 49ers fifth-round TE George Kittle was the team's most prolific target during the recent minicamp and drew praise from QB Brian Hoyer for his football awareness and intelligence. 'He has a really good football awareness, is what I would call it. A feel for where to break, how to break, read zones. I've been surprised and, obviously, it's a good thing for us to have a guy who has that football awareness and some feel of the game to it,' Hoyer said.

    Huddle Up: The more Kittle continues to stand out, the more likely Vance McDonald will not be on the roster come the start of the regular season. The rookie is being prepped to take on a hybrid tight end/H-back role and an above-average blocker as well as a receiver, so he figures to get a lot of snaps right away. However, that role isn't likely to translate to significant value right away in the 49ers' offense, so he can be left undrafted in fantasy.
