Second of all, Kittle, unlike many players, actually cares about his fantasy owners. Therefore, Kittle is a man of the people.
Third of all, Kittle is the best tight end in the league. He just broke the record for the most receiving yards for a tight end in a single season, and did it with a quarterback carousel and on one of the most injured teams in all of football.
His YAC (yards after catch) ability is special, ranking first in the league over elite running backs and receivers such as the Carolina Panthers’ Christian McCaffrey and the Steelers’ JuJu Smith-Schuster. Once the ball hits his fingertips, Kittle will bulldoze over defenders and never stop running. Watching Kittle play football is like watching Forrest Gump on steroids.
Kittle is also undoubtedly the best blocking skill player in the league. Just take a look at this video.
Every week Kittle makes someone his very own ragdoll, delivering incredible blocks just like this on a weekly basis.
I know John Lynch has only had two years under his belt as a general manager and will probably be drafting a lot of special talent throughout the years, but it will be difficult to top this pick.
