This afternoon a press conference was held where we were with George Kittle and Elijah Mitchell talking about the upcoming season and the Mexico game. The main focus was Trey Lance and how he has developed chemistry with Kittle and the general feeling of the team with this young man as their QB. Also, they left us a message for everyone who plays Fantasy why you need to select them.
Trey Lance’s first steps
Talking about the chemistry that he has been developing with Trey Lance commenting that it is still in the early stages and it is something that they are improving day by day with some plays still failing them. He also commented on the upside he has with running and shooting skills and how he will improve little by little over time.
Taking into account how the league has been evolving at the LB position, going more towards fast players, who can be everywhere, who don’t bite into PlayAction and they can cover well, I asked George Kittle thinking about the Mexico game what challenges they present for a TE like him, to this he commented that training with Fred Warner, Azeez Al-Shair and Dre Greenlaw helps him face these new LB . He also commented that the loss of Jordan Hicks could affect the Cardinals and he is excited to face the young pair from Arizona.
The must-sees in Fantasy Football this year
For fans of Fantasy Football and of drafting Elijah Mitchell, George Kittle gave several reasons not to pass up this player, noting the high rushing volume the 49ers have running the ball 35 times each practice and meaning Mitchell will have a lot the ball in his hands. He also noted his great ability to win on third downs, run routes and make opposing defenders miss. Lastly, he hinted that Elijah Mitchell will command the red zone offense, so the TD upside is more present than ever. Elijah Mitchell warned that you can’t pass up George Kittle in your drafts because of his ability to rack up yards after the catch.
Speaking about Trey Lance, Kittle said a very interesting phrase with a nod to the QBs he’s been with before, commenting that “Trey has made special plays that I haven’t seen other QBs make.” He also praised his arm talent and his leadership ability.
There is optimism within the team for this season with the talent of the roster in general and confidence in Lance’s growth in 2022. As a curious fact about the arm that so much praise of this QB, 18% of his passes were over 20 yards, being the third in the entire NFL with this percentage, also when he commanded the offense, he was the rookie with the best EPA per play in the entire NFL.
Regarding Elijah Mitchell, he looks to repeat his spectacular 2021 campaign, where he trailed only Jonathan Taylor and Nick Chubb in yards after contact on the run. With Shanahan’s outside zone scheme and excellent run blockers like George Kittle and Trent Williams, it won’t be difficult for him.
