Summary

Kittle's rise has been nothing short of tremendous; Travis Kelce is no longer a foregone conclusion as the game's best tight end. Kittle is both a dynamic receiver on all levels of the field and a crucial blocker in the run game, keeping him on the field for 90-95% of snaps when active. He's turned that workload into a 16-game average of 92 catches, 1,296 yards, and 5 touchdowns. Over his three seasons, no tight end in football has topped his stunning 9.6 yards per target. Settled into a ball-dominant role - he's drawn 27% of Jimmy Garoppolo's looks over the past 2 years - Kittle is just a hair below Kelce as an early-round TE1 target. (May 3)
