Nick Kwiatkoski being signed by Raiders

Nick Kwiatkoski tweeted a photo of the new Las Vegas stadium and Ian Rapoport confirmed that he will be playing for the Raiders next season.

Fantasy Impact

Kwiatkoski has been a Chicago fan-favorite for years and it was assumed that they wouldn't have the assets to retain him this season. Vontaze Burfict only played four games last season before suffering a suspension through the end of the year and his future with the team is up in the air. He has vowed to come back and change the way he plays, but the Raiders' investment in Kwiatkoski shows that they may be ready to move on. If so, Kwiatkoski would become a run-stuffing starting middle linebacker and would have the ability to launch himself into fantasy relevance. Keep an eye on the Raiders' camp to see how this depth chart will shake out. Kwiatkoski's contract is 3 years/$21M with $13.5M guaranteed.

Nick Kwiatkoski leads all Bears with eight tackles

Nick Kwiatkoski ended Sunday’s 21-19 win over the Vikings with eight tackles (six solo).

Fantasy Impact

If Kwiatkoski is given a starting gig next season he is worth rostering in dynasty leagues. He finished the regular season with 68 tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, and an interception.

Nick Kwiatkoski comes away with his third sack

Nick Kwiatkoski racked up five total tackles and one sack during Sunday’s 21-13 loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Kwiatkoski has 50 total tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, and an interception through Week 15. He should be added in all leagues especially dynasty formats and a low-end LB1.

Nick Kwiatkoski leads all Bears in tackles

Nick Kwiatkoski finished Thursday’s win over the Dallas Cowboys with 10 tackles (eight solo).

Fantasy Impact

Kwiatkoski should be a priority addition in IDP leagues. The Bears could be without star LB Roquan Smith (torn pec) thrusting Kwiatkoski more into the spotlight. Fantasy value is driven from opportunity and Nick Kwiatkoski will be seeing a lot of work at LB.

Nick Kwiatkoski comes away with eight total tackles

Nick Kwiatkoski finished Thursday’s 24-20 win over the Lions with eight total tackles (six solo).

Fantasy Impact

Kwiatkoski is a decent fill-in for owners in need of an LB replacement for the fantasy playoffs. He logged his highest snap count on Thursday and is in line for a consistent role to finish the season. He has 27 total tackles in his last four games and should be viewed as a high-end LB2.
