Cole Kmet fantasy managers should rejoice at this stat: Kmet was top-10 in Receiving Routes Run at the TE position in week one! He logged a total of 51 snaps on offense to Jimmy Graham's 14 and it led to some solid fantasy production. While a 5-42-0 stat line isn't anything to jump up and down about, it's encouraging for fantasy managers that added Kmet late in their drafts in hopes that he could start to take over this TE job in Chicago. This offense is lying in wait until we see Fields take over, which is when we could see Kmet take off, but he's still going to be fantasy relevant in the meantime. Against the Bengals, Kmet can be viewed as a high-end TE2.
