San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle is officially set to return to the field for the first time since Week 8. Though starting him in Week 16 obviously carries a decent amount of risk, he's simply too talented to leave on the bench.
Plus, he absolutely tore it up the last time we saw him return from injury.
George Kittle Fantasy Outlook
Kittle missed Week 2 and 3 due to injuries. But he was electric during his return in Week 4. He turned 15 targets into 15 catches for 183 yards and a TD. Kittle is probably one of only three NFL tight ends (alongside Travis Kelce and Darren Waller) who are capable of putting up numbers like that.
You just can't leave a talent like that on the bench, even in a tough matchup against a solid Arizona Cardinals' defense.
Kittle should be view as a top-five play at the position in Week 16.
