Kmet saw a season-high 11 targets in the Bears' Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions and finished with 8-65-0. That was with Andy Dalton at quarterback for the Bears. Dalton had also targeted Kmet seven times in Week 1, resulting in a 5-42-0 stat line for the second-year tight end. Kmet ran routes on 86% of Dalton's dropbacks in Week 12. It's encouraging usage, but two reasons to flash the caution light for Week 13: (1) Kmet still hasn't scored a touchdown all season, and (2) he's about to face a Cardinals defense that's giving up 4.5 fantasy points per game to tight ends, the second-lowest total in the league.
