While the 49ers lack a true alpha WR1, they make up for it with one of the greatest tight ends in the history of the game. Yes, George Kittle - at age 26 - has already solidified himself as one of the all-time greats at the position. He's an elite run blocker, but fantasy owners have to be in love with a player who has gone over 1,000 receiving yards in each of his past two seasons. To put that into perspective, both Tony Gonzalez and Rob Gronkowski only had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons once during their careers, while Antonio Gates had just two 1,000-yard seasons his entire career. With another high-volume season, Kittle could become the second tight end in history (Travis Kelce) to hit the 1,000-yard mark for the third straight season.

Kittle produced his 1,053 receiving yards in 2019 in just 14 starts, so his 16-game pace would've put him over 1,200 receiving yards. While his reception and yardage numbers are off the charts, Kittle has actually been unlucky in the touchdown department over the past two seasons, having scored just five times in each of the past two seasons. The 49ers were extraordinarily successful running the ball in the red zone as they finished with a league-leading 23 rushing touchdowns, but that type of success is extremely difficult to replicate. If the team sees a bit of a regression back toward the 15 to 20 rushing touchdown range, that would open things up quite a bit for Kittle to potentially get into the end zone more often. If he can bump that touchdown total up a bit, Kittle is suddenly producing WR1 numbers from the tight end position. That's potentially a league-winning player.

Of course, the fact that Kittle plays tight end is something that we have to keep in mind. While it does give him premium value given that most other tight ends aren't nearly as productive, the tight end position itself is also the most-injured position in all of fantasy football. Kittle himself missed a pair of games during the middle of the 2019 season and it's always possible that he suffers some sort of injury that prevents him from being his usual explosive self. The added risk of injury makes taking a tight end in the early rounds a risky proposition any year but Kittle is the type of player who could legitimately finish as the TE1 and give his fantasy owners a gigantic edge at the position.
