2020 Fantasy Outlook
Kwiatkoski earned eight starts on the way to posting career highs in tackles (76) and sacks (three) before his four-year rookie deal with the Bears expired at the end of the 2019 season. A three-year, $21M contract from the Raiders awaited Kwiatkoski in free agency, as such a payday locks him into a starting role at outside linebacker for the silver and black next to Cory Littleton and Nicholas Morrow.

Kwiatkoski (pectoral) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.
ANALYSIS
The 27-year-old missed the past two games with the pectoral injury, but he'll be back on the field for Week 4. Kwiatkoski had six tackles in 26 snaps before exiting the season opener and figures to play a significant role in the middle of the Las Vegas defense.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2016
When injuries have forced Kwiatkoski into the starting lineup during his first two years in the league, he's shown the ability to be a solid IDP option. For instance, in the last three games of 2017, he posted at least eight tackles in each contest. That said, after the team drafted Roquan Smith in the first round of the 2018 draft, Kwiatkoski will continue to serve as a second-stringer. He's not a recommended player to draft in IDP leagues, but he'll definitely be a player to monitor on the waiver wire if he's pressed into a starting role.
The Bears’ 2016 fourth-round draft choice profiles as a strong tackler, who also has solid coverage skills. However, with Jerrell Freeman and Danny Trevathan ahead of him on the depth chart, Kwiatkoski won’t have IDP value unless the team suffers injuries at inside linebacker, and he earns a starting role.
