Ross Dwelley
26-Year-Old Tight EndTE
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Dwelley took a back seat in 2020 after the team signed veteran tight end Jordan Reed to back up George Kittle. The third-year pro finished with 245 yards and a touchdown on 19 receptions while filling in for injured veterans. Dwelley was given a one-year extension to serve as Kittle's backup this year - following Reed's retirement - but he won't have much fantasy value unless the former goes down with an injury again.

Dwelley signed a one-year extension with San Francisco on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Following three solid seasons in San Francisco to start his career, Dwelley has demonstrated enough to earn an extension. The 26-year-old filled the No. 2 tight end role behind George Kittle in 2020 and played significant snaps during the latter's eight absences, catching 19 of his 24 targets for 245 yards and a touchdown.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Dwelley had a solid 2019 season backing up George Kittle, finishing with 15 receptions for 91 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 16 games. The 25-year-old's role may take a hit with the offseason signing of the talented, but oft-injured, Jordan Reed. Dwelley's superior run blocking could keep him on the field in certain heavy packages, but a healthy Reed will certainly keep the former's targets to a minimum in 2020.
Dwelley was barely a factor in his rookie season, seeing just 39 offensive snaps and catching two passes for 14 yards. 2019 is shaping up to be a different story. The 24-year-old has stood out in camp, putting himself in position to make the team as its third tight end. With current backup Garrett Celek dealing with an injury, Dwelley has a ceiling of second on the depth chart to begin the year.
