Welcome back to the redraft conversation, Kmet! After doing next to nothing the previous few weeks, Kmet had a 20% target share in week six against the Packers and he reeled in four of his five targets for 49 yards. While it's certainly not anything impressive on a surface level, this type of performance doesn't crush your lineup and he's worth considering in this matchup against the Bucs if you're in a pinch. Fields is going to be forced into throwing the ball more this week and Kmet should benefit as a result. He's nothing more than a mid-range TE2 in rankings, but if you're in a pinch due to bye weeks and injuries, Kmet can be picked up and started.
