San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was limited at Thursday's practice with an apparent chest injury, but there's nothing to suggest it's anything serious. He should be set to go for the 49ers' Week 10 matchup on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants.
Kittle will have a seemingly tough matchup against the Giants, who are allowing the ninth-fewest FanDuel fantasy points to opposing tight ends. However, upon looking into each matchup, you'll see that Zach Ertz of the Philadelphia Eagles and Jordan Reed of the Washington Redskins are the only legit threats they've seen all season. Ertz finished with seven catches on nine targets for 43 yards and a touchdown and Reed notched seven catches on 12 targets for 38 yards.
All in all, Kittle's 41 receptions and 61 targets are leading the 49ers receiving options by a wide margin. Look for him to be involved in San Fransisco's game plan each and every week, as long as he's on the field, lining Kittle up as a low-end TE1 with upside in PPR leagues this week.
