Bears' Cole Kmet: Quiet in playoff debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Targeted eight times in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Ready for regular-season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Downgraded to limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Fails to capitalize on targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet caught two passes for 16 yards in the Bears' 41-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Kmet was targeted six times, but Jimmy Graham was the tight end who was on the receiving end of both of Mitch Tubisky's touchdown passes. In addition, Kmet was given a rushing attempt near the goal line, but he was tackled for a three-yard loss. Despite seeing increased target volume over the last four weeks, he's averaging 27 yards with one score during that span, making him a touchdown-dependent fantasy option in Week 17 against the Packers.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Quiet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet caught two passes for 12 yards in the Bears' 33-27 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.

Kmet was targeted just twice, though with the Bears playing with a lead for the majority of this contest, they attempted just 21 passes, and the tight end failed to reach seven targets for the first time in three games. Although he's performed well lately, he's yet to surpass 45 yards in a game, making him a risky fantasy option in Week 16 against a weak Jacksonville defense.

December 13, 2020 07:20 PM
Bears' Cole Kmet: Targeted seven times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet caught four passes for 41 yards in the Bears' 36-7 win over the Texans on Sunday.

Kmet cemented his role as Chicago's lead tight end with his second straight seven-target performance, although it was Jimmy Graham who scored the only tight-end touchdown for the team. Despite his increased volume since Week 10, Kmet has yet to surpass 45 yards in a game this season, making him a floor play during the fantasy playoffs.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Best game of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet caught five passes for 37 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 34-30 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

After failing to see more than three targets in any game during his rookie season, Kmet tied Allen Robinson for the team lead with seven targets while posting the only touchdown reception by a Chicago player. Coming into this game, he had been targeted three times in each of the prior two contests, which was the same number seen by Jimmy Graham. It appears the rookie may be emerging as the team's top tight end, though he'll be difficult to trust in fantasy lineups until he shows more consistency.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Minor receiving role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet caught one pass for eight yards in Chicago's 41-25 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Kmet was targeted three times, including one on a deep pass down the middle of the field that was significantly off target. He's caught just three passes over the last four games, and unless he begins to show consistent production, he won't be a reliable fantasy option.

November 16, 2020 11:56 PM
Bears' Cole Kmet: Targeted three times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet caught one pass for seven yards in the Bears' 19-13 loss to the Vikings on Monday.

With just seven catches on the season, Kmet won't be a recommended fantasy option unless he begins to see a sharp increase in weekly production.

November 16, 2020 07:00 PM
Bears' Cole Kmet: Available Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet (groin) is listed as active Monday against the Vikings.

Kmet managed just one limited practice before this game due to a groin injury, but he'll play through it for a second straight contest. In the Bears' Week 9 loss to the Titans, though, he was blanked in the box score and wasn't even targeted. On the season, Kmet is averaging less than a target per game, with Jimmy Graham leading the team's tight end group.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Deemed questionable for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet (groin) is considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Vikings.

The second-round pick out of Notre Dame hasn't taken off this season, operating as the No. 2 behind Jimmy Graham. He's in danger of sitting out for the first time in his career, as he made his first practice appearance Saturday when he was a limited participant. Even with the progress he's made, the Bears may opt to rest Kmet with a Week 11 bye on the docket. If he is indeed out, Demetrius Harris and J.P. Holtz figure to see more playing time.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Misses second straight practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet (groin) didn't participate in Friday's practice.

Kmet missed a practice last week with a groin injury and was ultimately active for the Week 9 loss to Tennessee, but his status is uncertain again after a second straight missed practice. The rookie second-rounder needs to get on the field in some capacity Saturday to have a shot at playing in Monday's divisional clash against the Vikings. Demetrius Harris and J.P. Holtz both stand to see increased usage behind starter Jimmy Graham if Kmet is forced to miss Week 10.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Held out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet (groin) did not participate during the Bears' practice session Thursday.

The second-round rookie had been dealing with a groin issue entering Chicago's Week 9 matchup against Tennesee, but he was ultimately able to suit up and field a season-high 36 offensive snaps during the contest. Kmet was not reported as having aggravated the groin injury postgame, but the issue continues to linger, docking his practice participation. Behind starter Jimmy Graham, longtime Chief Demetrius Harris would receive additional tight end snaps if Kmet is unable to go for Monday night's home game against Minnesota.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Active against Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet (groin) is active Week 9 against Tennessee.

Kmet's absence from Thursday's practice ultimately won't affect his gameday status, as the tight end will suit up in his usual regular capacity behind Jimmy Graham. He hasn't been much of a fantasy factor this year outside of a touchdown caught Week 6 against Carolina, as he's gone without a catch in four of the eight games he's played.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game at Tennessee, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

The rookie second-round pick was added to the injury report Thursday as a nonparticipant, but he returned to practice Friday in a limited fashion. Demetrius Harris and J.P. Holtz would be in line for increased reps behind Jimmy Graham should Kmet be sidelined Sunday.

Bears' Cole Kmet: Tending to groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet (groin) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice estimate.

Kmet wasn't among the Bears' injured players Wednesday, so this 'DNP' is cause for concern with regard to his ability to suit up Sunday at Tennessee. If he's unable to go, any lingering TE reps behind Jimmy Graham will filter down to Demetrius Harris and J.P. Holtz.

Bears' Cole Kmet: One catch in OT loss to Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet corralled his only target for two yards during Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to New Orleans.

Kmet dealt with a back injury and was reported as a limited participant in practice for the first time all season last Wednesday. The second-round rookie was able to recover with a full session the following day, ultimately recording his eighth appearance of 2020 on Sunday against New Orleans. Despite him fielding a season-high 30 offensive snaps in the contest, Kmet's production against the Saints was a far cry from the four catches, 65 yards and one touchdown he produced the preceding two outings.

October 29, 2020 05:28 PM
Bears' Cole Kmet: Puts in full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kmet (back) practiced in full Thursday.

Kmet has consistently played around 30 percent of the snaps on offense each week this season, but the rookie second-rounder only recently has been making an impact in the box score, gathering in all four targets for 65 yards and a TD over the last two games. He kicked off this week with a limited showing Wednesday but bucked the back injury on the second Week 8 practice report. While he'll continue to play second fiddle to starting TE Jimmy Graham, Kmet seems to be developing a rapport with starting quarterback Nick Foles.
