TE - CHI - Questionable
Week 17 Outlook
Cole Kmet saw four targets and had three receptions for 16 yards in Sunday's playoff loss to the Saints.
Prior to Week 9, Kmet didn't take more than 47% of his team's snaps. From Week 11 through Week 17, Kmet played at least 78% and he supplanted Jimmy Graham as the team's number one tight end. Drafted as the first tight end off the board in 2020, Kmet will go into his sophomore season with high hopes, especially if the Bears choose to end Jimmy Graham's contract. With an expected quarterback change in Chicago as well, Kmet could make for a sneaky sleeper in 2021 fantasy leagues.
Cole Kmet (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's Week 17 divisional matchup against the Packers.
Cole Kmet has seen 22 targets over the last four weeks and is becoming a bigger part of the Bears passing attack. Still, being behind Allen Robinson, Darnell Mooney, Anthony Miller, and Jimmy Graham in overall targets makes him a risky play in this matchup against the Packers. Kmet can be relied on as a low-end TE2 who likely needs a touchdown to salvage his fantasy outing.
Cole Kmet (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Packers.
Kmet suffered the injury in practice this week and it's unclear if he'll be able to play on Sunday. DFS players should be monitoring this one as Jimmy Graham would have more fantasy appeal if Kmet can't go.
Cole Kmet caught two of six targets for 18 yards and lost three yards on one carry in the Bears' 41-17 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.
The six looks were encouraging, but Kmet couldn't get much going with them. Meanwhile, Jimmy Graham went for 6 yards and two scores on the afternoon. Kmet is a great hold in dynasty formats, but he doesn't need to be rostered for Week 17 of redraft season
Cole Kmet corralled both of his targets for 12 yards in the Bears’ 33-27 win over the Vikings on Sunday.
Coming off back-to-back seven-target outings, Kmet's meager workload here was disappointing, but it was a bad day for Chicago's passing game overall. Kmet has a chance to bounce back in Week 16 against the Jags, but he's not a high-upside option for fantasy championship week.
