Snags two passes

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-24

Kmet caught two passes for 22 yards in the Bears' 41-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

In a game that Justin Fields threw for just 99 yards, Kmet was second on the team with his 22 yards. Going into this game, Chicago passed for at least 200 yards in their previous two contests, so Kmet should return closer to the 41 yards he was averaging. However, the lack of scoring by the Bears offense could limit Kmet's touchdown upside.

Another steady performance

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Kmet caught four passes for 38 yards in the Bears' 27-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Kmet was third on the team with six targets after tying for the team lead with seven in Week 1. Although the Bears have not had much offensive success through two weeks, Kmet's volume could give him a reasonable weekly scoring floor.

Makes five grabs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-10

Kmet caught five of seven targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Packers. He also rushed once for zero yards.

Kmet tied with two others for Chicago's team lead in targets, but his production mostly came in garbage time. With quarterback Justin Fields still unproven as a downfield passer, Kmet holds moderate value as an underneath option, with added upside in the red zone after seven touchdowns last term.

Quiet in preseason finale

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-26

Kmet finished without a catch on one target in Saturday's preseason game against Buffalo.

Kmet played three drives and had his one catch wiped out by a penalty on a teammate. He's locked in as Chicago's top tight end ahead of a Week 1 matchup with Green Bay, joining WRs DJ Moore and Darnell Mooney as one of the top receiving options for third-year QB Justin Fields.

Back at practice Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-24

Kmet (undisclosed) was practicing in full Thursday, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Kmet left Wednesday's practice early due to an unspecified issue, but Lieser reports Kmet's Thursday practice looked "normal." It sounds like a non-issue for the Bears' top tight end.

Leaves practice early

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-23

Kmet departed Wednesday's practice early on a cart, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Kmet seems to have suffered an injury at practice Wednesday, though any details as to the severity or specifics remain undisclosed. The tight end is fresh off a four-year extension and looks locked into a key role on offense for the Bears, with the potential of emerging as one of Justin Fields' favorite targets, so his health will warrant monitoring closely.

Potential receiving weapon

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-15

Kmet could be second on the Bears in receptions, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

After signing a big contract extension, Kmet is expected to be a core part of the Bears offense. He also provides the team with a big target in the middle of the field. Expect the team to use plenty of two tight end packages, and Robert Tonyan will play quite a bit, but Kmet has a chance of being a featured part of the passing game.

Inks big four-year extension

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-07-26

Kmet signed a four-year, $50 million contract extension with the Bears on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Kmet's new deal reportedly includes $32.8 million guaranteed and $20 million in new first-year cash, a nice payday for the 2020 second-round pick. The move provides some additional surrounding stability for budding star Justin Fields, who showed a solid rapport with Kmet in 2022 as the tight end compiled a 50-544-7 receiving line in 17 contests. Chicago added Robert Tonyan to the tight end room this offseason, but Kmet's extension is a clear sign that the team is committed to him in the long term.

Gets new backup

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-03-17

Kmet could lose some snaps after the Bears added Robert Tonyan in free agency Thursday, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.

Kmet played at least 91 percent of the snaps in 14 games last year. Although that percentage may not dip much, Tonyan is familiar with the Bears offense from his days in Green Bay, when Chicago's offensive coordinator Luke Getsy was his coach. Kmet should retain close to a full snap share, but with Tonyan having caught at least 52 passes in two of the last three seasons, Kmet could lose occasional targets. However, this move should not have much impact on Kmet's fantasy value.
