George Kittle Recovered, Back On Field

Wednesday, June 19, 12:57 AM

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle (groin) has recovered from core muscle surgery and was back on the field as a full participant at Tight End U on Tuesday, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic. The 30-year-old is coming off a huge campaign in which he was named a Pro Bowler and First Team All-Pro after totaling 65 catches, 1,020 yards, and six touchdowns in 2023. He's the undisputed No. 1 tight end in San Francisco and has also firmly cemented himself as one of Brock Purdy's favorite targets. Now fully healthy and ready for the 2024 campaign, Kittle finds himself in the high-end TE1 tier for fantasy football once again.

Chigoziem Okonkwo Catches Two Passes In Win

Sunday, January 7, 4:38 PM

Tennessee Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo caught two of his three targets for 36 yards in the season-ending win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The second-year pass-catcher underwhelmed in fantasy football this year, finishing with 54 receptions for 528 yards and one score. If he remains the starting tight end next season, he'll still have some fantasy football intrigue. If quarterback Will Levis takes a leap in year two, all of the Titans pass-catchers could receive value boosts.
