George Kittle Ghosts Fantasy Players In Super Bowl LVIII

Monday, February 12, 2:51 AM

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle disappointed fantasy gamers in the team's 25-22 Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas on Sunday. Chiefs' defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and his squad silenced Kittle, limiting him to just two catches on three targets for four yards receiving. Though Kittle finished as the fifth-most productive tight end in half-PPR scoring this year, nights like this are to be expected. In five separate games this year, he failed to reach five points. The Super Bowl loss ends Kittle's season with a particularly painful whimper though, as he finished with fewer than 10 yards receiving for just the third time this season. Of course, you can't have a top-5 finish without great games as well, so he'll likely be a mid-level TE1 in fantasy drafts this fall as he tries to get to the Super Bowl for a third time.

Johnny Mundt Stays Busy In Loss To Lions

Monday, January 8, 1:23 PM

Minnesota Vikings tight end Johnny Mundt had an elevated role yet again in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Detroit Lions on Sunday with T.J. Hockenson (knee) out. The 29-year-old had season-highs in catches (five) and receiving yards (58) while drawing six targets. His 58 receiving yards finished second on the team behind receiver Justin Jefferson's 192 yards. In Week 17, Mundt had four catches for 39 yards and his first touchdown of the year. Fellow tight end Josh Oliver also had two receptions for 31 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss. Mundt will be venturing into free agency this March as he heads into his eighth season in the NFL. He'll be competing for a backup role with whichever organization he ends up signing with. Mundt had 17 catches for a career-high 172 yards and one touchdown in 17 games in 2023.
