  • Bears' Cole Kmet: Five targets in season finale

    Kmet caught four passes for 48 yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 60 receptions for 612 yards.

    As a rookie in 2020, Kmet started to become a significant part of the offense down the stretch, and he built on that this year, more than doubling his targets, receptions and yardage in his sophomore campaign. He'll enter the third year of his four-year rookie deal in 2022, and he could be viewed as a breakout option if Jimmy Graham doesn't return since such a development would potentially lead to more red-zone targets. He's likely to be selected as a top-18 tight end in 2022 fantasy drafts.

  • Bears' Cole Kmet: Comes up small in victory

    Kmet caught two of four targets for 25 yards in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday.

    Kmet finished third on the team in targets, but the Chicago passing attack was inefficient, and Darnell Mooney was the only Bears pass catcher who had success in this contest. With at least three receptions in each of his last six games, he'll have a solid scoring floor in Week 18 against the Vikings.

  • Bears' Cole Kmet: Solid performance

    Kmet caught four passes for 49 yards in the Bears' 25-24 win over the Seahawks on Sunday.

    Kmet was quiet throughout the first half before posting production while the Bears were mounting a late comeback. Although he didn't score, he was overthrown by Nick Foles in the end zone, and he was later upstaged by fellow tight end Jimmy Graham, who scored his third red-zone touchdown over the Bears' last five games. With at least 41 yards in four of his last five games, Kmet will be a high-floor fantasy option in Week 17 against the Giants.

  • Bears' Cole Kmet: Leads team in receiving

    Kmet caught six passes for 71 yards in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Vikings on Monday.

    Kmet led the Bears in targets and he frequently had plenty of room to operate in the middle of the field, helping him post a solid yardage total. He was also open for a potential touchdown reception in the fourth quarter, but Justin Fields threw the ball behind where it needed to be, and the ball was knocked away. Although he hasn't scored all year, he's posted at least 41 yards in three of his last four games, and he'll be a potential fantasy starter for the duration of the fantasy playoffs.

  • Bears' Cole Kmet: Back on field

    Kmet (illness) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

    Kmet was one of eight Bears who didn't take part in Thursday's walk-through session on account of an illness. All but one of those players returned to the field Friday as full participants, temporarily alleviating some concern about a team-wide COVID-19 breakout. With that in mind, Kmet looks in line to fill his normal role as the Bears' starting tight end Monday against the Vikings.

  • Bears' Cole Kmet: Dealing with illness

    Kmet was held out of Thursday's walkthrough due to an illness.

    While Kmet was one of eight Bears to miss the session for this reason, the team placed five players, including fellow tight end Jesse James (undisclosed), on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday. As for the rest of the TE room, Jimmy Graham was listed as limited due to a knee issue and Jesper Horsted also sat out with an illness, making J.P. Holtz the only healthy member of the position group at the moment.
