2020 Fantasy Outlook
Immediately after spending a second-round draft pick on Kmet, making him the first tight end selected this year, GM Ryan Pace noted that Kmet will be the inline (blocking) tight end while Jimmy Graham serves as the receiving option. In any case, tight ends selected after the first round of the NFL Draft very rarely have much fantasy value in their first season, and especially those who are ticketed to be blockers. Of course, the fact that Kmet may be close to a full-time player could lead to him getting a few targets each week, and there's a scenario where he scores a few touchdowns when the Bears are in their goal-line offense. Despite the possibility of the rookie seeing some production, it's very difficult to imagine a scenario in which he's a top-20 tight end option in fantasy leagues this year. Read Past Outlooks

Hauls in one pass

September 20, 2020
Kmet caught a 12-yard pass in Chicago's 17-13 win over the Giants on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
For the second week in a row, the rookie was targeted just a single time, and unless his role in the passing attack is significantly increased, he'll have very limited fantasy value.
