2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL INJURY FALLOUT: GEORGE KITTLE COULD MISS OPENER DUE TO SHOULDER INJURY

While San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan refused to go into details, he did say on Friday that tight end George Kittle would "miss some time" due to the shoulder injury he suffered early in Thursday night's preseason opener for the team.  No stranger to injury going back to his college days, Kittle is in jeopardy of missing Week 1 according to Shanahan's tone and that removes a crucial and rare fantasy football value play with upside.  That will make the market for tight end pass-catchers all the more competitive without Kittle and so this is not a good thing for all involved. 

Meanwhile, the 49ers also saw backup running back Matt Breida suffer his own shoulder injury as Shanahan fell back on his "will miss some time" theme here.  The fact that Breida himself could miss some sizable time secures even more potential for popular summer running back sleeper Jerrick McKinnon.
