Kmet caught two passes for 20 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 23-16 victory over the Panthers on Sunday. Kmet got open between three defenders while catching a perfect pass from Nick Foles to score his first NFL touchdown, but the two targets he received equaled the total number of looks he had seen over the first four games. Until he sees a consistent increase in targets, his fantasy value will remain minimal.
Kmet didn't draw any targets while playing 21 of the Bears' 63 offensive snaps (33 percent) in Thursday's 20-19 win over the Buccaneers. Kmet has settled into the in-line blocking role at tight end that previously belonged to Adam Shaheen, who was traded to the Dolphins in July. With veteran Jimmy Graham proving to be a reliable safety valve in the passing game for Chicago thus far, the rookie second-round pick likely won't be in store for an uptick in targets so long as the former stays healthy.
Kmet failed to catch his only target in the Bears' 19-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday. Kmet has caught just a single pass for 12 yards on the season, and he won't have fantasy value unless his role in the Chicago passing attack increases significantly.
Kmet did not garner a target during Sunday's 30-26 win over the Falcons. The rookie tight end has been on the field for more than 30 percent of Chicago's offensive snaps in all three of his outings, though he has only logged one catch for 12 yards on 68 total plays. Jimmy Graham has a team-high three receiving touchdowns through Week 3, but Kmet has yet to establish a rapport of his own with the Bears' signal-callers. As Nick Foles earns his first start for Chicago in Week 4, the team faces a Colts defense that has permitted an NFL-low 32 receiving yards to opposing tight ends.
Kmet caught a 12-yard pass in Chicago's 17-13 win over the Giants on Sunday. For the second week in a row, the rookie was targeted just a single time, and unless his role in the passing attack is significantly increased, he'll have very limited fantasy value.
