Kmet caught three passes for 16 yards in Chicago's 21-9 loss to the Saints in the wild-card round. Kmet had all three of his receptions in the first half and wasn't heard from afterwards in a game the Bears were dominated in time of possession, resulting in limited opportunities. After being an afterthought in the offense through the first 12 games of the season, he was targeted at least six times in four of the last five regular-season games, ending the season with 29 receptions for 243 yards and two touchdowns. He'll enter 2021 in the second year of a four-year contract, and he'll likely be an emerging fantasy force as the team's lead tight end who's expected to play a three-down role.
Kmet caught seven passes for 41 yards in the Bears' 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Kmet was third on the team with eight targets, and he was an important part of a ball-control attack designed to keep the Packers offense off the field. After being an afterthought in the offense through the first 12 games of the season, he was targeted at least six times in four of the last five games, ending the season with 29 receptions for 243 yards and two touchdowns. After the Bears complete their playoff run, he'll enter the second of a four-year contract, and he'll likely be an emerging fantasy force as the team's lead tight end.
Kmet (shoulder) is active for Sunday's matchup against Green Bay. The rookie tight end gets the green light for Chicago's Week 17 matchup, as the Bears aim to clinch a second playoff trip in three years with a win over their division rivals. Kmet didn't have any reported issues coming out of last Sunday's win over the Jaguars, but he was labeled questionable for the regular-season finale after submitting limited practices Thursday and Friday. Officially active for his 16th appearance of the year, Kmet enters the regular-season finale with a stat line of 21 receptions, 202 yards and two TDs.
Kmet (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. Kmet was a full practice participant Wednesday before logging limited sessions Thursday and Friday. He's played at least 78 percent of offensive snaps in five straight games, and there hasn't been any suggestion he's in serious danger of missing Sunday's all-important contest. The increased playing time hasn't resulted in much production, with Kmet averaging 2.8 catches for 23.2 yards and 0.2 TDs on 5.0 targets the past five weeks.
Kmet (shoulder) was held to limited participation during Thursday's practice session. The second-round rookie hasn't missed a game all season, and his Thursday appearance on the injury report was notable given that he submitted a full session the day prior. There have been no reported shoulder issues to this point in the season for Kmet, though he did deal with back and groin injuries that curtailed his practice involvement in October and November. Kmet's Friday status may go a long way toward clarifying the tight end's availability for a crucial Sunday afternoon home game against Green Bay.
