George Kittle Loses Significant Weight This Offseason

Thursday, June 20, 2:09 PM

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was rehabbing a fractured rib, issues with his shoulder and toe, and a core-muscle injury that required surgery this offseason. As a result, Kittle revealed that he lost almost 30 pounds after the Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, a significant blow to his typical 250-pound frame. "I couldn't lift," Kittle explained. "I couldn't do any upper body because of my shoulder and my rib, and I couldn't do lower [body] because of my core surgery. I didn't lift from the Super Bowl until like almost mid-March." However, Kittle remains confident going into the 2024 season and is recovered from surgery on his core. The 30-year-old led the NFL with 1,020 receiving yards in 16 regular-season games in 2023 and is still one of the high-end targets at the position in fantasy. However, with only 65 catches in an offense with many mouths to feed, his 2023 production may be his ceiling at this point in his career.

Kylen Granson Leads Way With 62 Yards In Week 16 Loss

Sunday, December 24, 10:28 PM

Indianapolis Colts tight end Kylen Granson led the team when he reeled in five of his seven targets for 62 yards in the team's 29-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Indy found themselves struggling to move the ball in this one, and with wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (concussion) out, Granson was able to step up and see some additional volume. The Colts have shuffled around numerous tight ends this season, so it's unclear if Granson's volume will continue moving forward. The former SMU Mustang may be an interesting waiver wire pickup in Week 17 but isn't a sure-fire option for the team's next matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders.
