George Kittle making an impression GM John Lynch: "He's exceeded our expectations." By: Doug Orth | Jul 10 2017, 6:00 pm
George Kittle could very well be an impact player as a rookie. You keep hearing his name for a reason. The tight end’s play during minicamp earned himself some publicity. GM John Lynch continued to build the excitement around Kittle during a phone interview with KNBR.
“He’s really flashed. He’s got some suddenness to him in his movements. He catches the ball extremely well. George gives us something we don’t have as a playmaker down in the red zone. He is that guy who can win 1-on-1. He can impose his will and out-athlete people. He’s exceeded our expectations,” Lynch said. (49ers.com)
FFToday's Take:Kittle turned heads at the NFL Combine with a 4.52 40-yard time and was one of the best all-purpose tight ends in the 2017 draft. Although his odds of contributing in fantasy in Year 1 are slim due to the history of rookie tight ends and the talent surrounding him in San Fran, the firth-round pick has a bright future and needs to be owned in dynasty leagues.
