Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Finishes 2017 with 49 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kwiatkoski registered a pair of sacks and a forced fumble along with 49 tackles in 11 games in his second season with the Bears.

Kwiatkoski became a regular in the Bears' linebacker corps in Week 10 after injuries and suspensions left the Bears thin at the position. After collecting sacks in two straight games, he failed to notch another in any of the last six games. He also failed to exceed three tackles in any of his first four starts, but he finished the season on a high note while averaging 8.67 tackles in the last three games of the year. He's signed for the next two years, but unless he can permanently move into the starting lineup he won't be a reliable IDP.

Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Sacks quarterback in second straight contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kwiatkoski recorded a sack and three tackles in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions.

Although Kwiatkoski has recorded four or fewer tackles in three of the four games he's played this season, he's collected sacks in each of his last two matchups. He's not an elite IDP option at linebacker, but his production in the two games since returning to the lineup makes him an interesting streaming option while he stays hot.

Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Notches sack in Week 10 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kwiatkoski collected a sack and 10 tackles in Chicago's 23-16 loss to the Packers.

Although he was active in Week 7, this was the first real playing time Kwiatkoski has received since Week 2, and he was the most productive Bears defender in this game. When Danny Trevathan (calf) returns, the coaching staff will likely have to decide whether to keep Kwiatkoski or Christian Jones in the starting lineup. Whomever is declared the starter will have IDP value based on the potential to post big tackle numbers.

Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Active Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kwiatkoski (pectoral) is active for Sunday's tilt against Carolina.

Kwiatkoski has sat out the Bears' last four games. Now that he's back, look for Kwiatkoski to return to the starting lineup and bump Christian Jones back to a depth role.

Bears' Nick Kwiatkoski: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kwiatkoski (pectoral) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Kwiatkoski hasn't played a snap since Week 2 against the Bucs, and this is the second straight week he's received a Friday questionable designation. The second-year linebacker is set to be a starter when he returns, so that full workload should blossom into a nice fantasy contribution. However, he should still be considered a wait-and-see option until that time comes.
