Making his season debut last week against the Broncos, George Kittle was not limited in any way as he played 91% of San Francisco’s snaps.
While the Rams haven’t allowed a tight end to score this season, they did almost give one up to Zach Ertz in Week 3. In three games against Los Angeles in 2021, Kittle scored twice and tallied 17 targets.
This number closed at +150 last in each matchup.
Sticking with tight ends, Tyler Higbee is also a solid option in this game, especially with how well did played against the 49ers last season.
The Western Kentucky product had nine receptions for 75 yards and three touchdowns in two regular season games. San Francisco only gave up six touchdowns to tight ends last season – Higbee had half.
Beyond Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford, Higbee plays the most snaps on the Rams at 96%.
To Throw An Interception (-115)
The odds on this Matthew Stafford prop make absolutely no sense to me. He threw five picks in three games against San Francisco last year. Hell, he has five in three games this year.
This should be priced at -140, at least.
