Bears TE Cole Kmet (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. Kmet went catch-less on just 13 snaps last week, but he should play something much closer to his usual role today after putting in a full practice on Friday.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Packers. He was a full-go in Friday’s practice, so he should play. Kmet went catch-less on just 13 snaps last week but is seemingly healthier now.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He battled through this injury last week but finished catch-less on just 13 snaps. Unless he gets in a full practice on Thursday or Friday, Kmet won't be a trustable Week 18 fantasy play.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He was reportedly a true game-time decision after experiencing soreness in that knee this morning. Kmet would be a risky Week 17 fantasy start.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport updated his earlier report on Bears TE Cole Kmet, saying the TE is now "considered to be a game-time decision." Kmet reportedly wants to test his knee before the game, and they'll decide "based on overall soreness." It sounds like -- at best -- Kmet will be playing through pain. Keep that risk factor in mind as you make your lineup decisions.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (knee) is expected to play vs. the Falcons today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Kmet is listed as questionable after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. It's safe to assume he'll be operating at far less than 100% in this one, making him a risky fantasy start.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. He battled through this injury for much of last week’s game but played just one snap across Chicago's final two possessions. Kmet only got in a limited practice on Friday this week. He’ll obviously be at far less than 100% if he suits up on Sunday.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (knee) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. He's seemingly in real danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Falcons. Check back tomorrow to see how Kmet is listed on the final injury report.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He battled through this knee issue last week but certainly isn't a lock to play vs. the Falcons on Sunday. We'll update Kmet's status again tomorrow.

Bears TE Cole Kmet battled through a knee injury for much of Sunday's win over the Cardinals. He played just one snap across Chicago's final two possessions, according to insider Brad Biggs. Kmet still came away from this one with a career-high 107 receiving yards, but we'll need to keep a close eye on his status throughout the coming week.

2:56pm EST 12/24/23

Bears TE Cole Kmet (quad) is active for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and then limited again on Friday, adding some risk to his Week 16 fantasy outlook. But Kmet still sits inside the top 10 in the Week 16 TE Rankings.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (quad) is expected to play vs. the Cardinals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Kmet was added to the injury report on Thursday and then limited again on Friday, adding some risk to his Week 16 fantasy outlook. Kmet's TD potential is boosted today, though, with Chicago sporting a higher-than-usual 23.75-point implied total.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Cardinals. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and then limited again on Friday. We’ll look for more info on Kmet but won’t get Chicago’s inactives until a little before 3 pm ET on Sunday.

Bears TE Cole Kmet was added to the injury report with a quad and limited in practice on Thursday. That likely means he hurt his quad in today's practice. We'll see what Kmet does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals.

Bears TE Cole Kmet tallied 5 receptions for 66 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions. His 7 targets tied for second on the team, behind only WR D.J. Moore. That also marked his second straight 7-target game and fifth such outing among the past six games. That span has covered multiple games with both QBs, Justin Fields and Tyson Bagent. Kmet has averaged 6 receptions per game over that six-week span, making him an easy weekly starter at a position that's been tough for many fantasy teams all season. The Bears do get tough TE matchups the next two weeks in Cleveland and Arizona. But Jacksonville's Evan Engram had a good outing vs. the Browns on Sunday. And the Cardinals aren't scary against anyone. A Week 17 matchup with the Falcons has been positive for TE scoring.

Bears TE Cole Kmet secured 6 of 8 targets for 55 receiving yards and 2 TDs vs. the Saints in Week 9. He’s been on fire over the past two weeks, ranking first in PPR points per game (20.7) and fifth in receiving yards (134) among TEs. WR D.J. Moore did not fare as well in Sunday’s contest, recording just 3 catches for 44 yards. The turnaround time for the Bears is quite short as their Week 10 game vs. the Panthers is coming up on Thursday night. It won’t be an easy game for Kmet or Moore as the Carolina defense ranks as the second- and eighth-toughest matchup for opposing WRs and TEs respectively, per our our adjusted fantasy points allowed. That said, we may feel better about their fortunes if QB Justin Fields is able to return from his dislocated right thumb. Be sure to keep up with the injury reports in the coming days.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says the Bears are "hopeful" QB Justin Fields (thumb) can start Thursday night's game vs. the Panthers. Fields returned to a limited practice on Friday. He "still has issues" with that hand, Garafolo adds, "so he's gonna have to make some progress in a short period of time to be ready for Carolina." We'll track Fields' progress this coming week. QB Tyson Bagent gets another start vs. the Saints today.

The lone bright spot in Sunday night’s loss vs. the Chargers, Bears TE Cole Kmet hauled all 10 targets for a team-leading 79 receiving yards. This is the third time in five games that the former second-round pick has recorded at least 15 or more PPR points. His teammate WR D.J. Moore also had a fine outing, logging 4 catches on 6 targets for 55 yards in the contest. The Bears’ offense has struggled of late without the presence of QB Justin Fields. Should he return for Week 9 vs. the Saints, we’d be more excited to play them in lineups, but each pass-catcher is still a lower-end starter regardless of who’s under center.

Bears QB Justin Fields (thumb) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. He didn’t practice all week and, although Fields won’t have surgery, he isn’t a great bet to make it back for Week 8. Undrafted rookie QB Tyson Bagent makes his first career start this weekend. He’s not a viable fantasy play and makes WR D.J. Moore and TE Cole Kmet much riskier starts.

Bears HC Matt Eberflus labeled QB Justin Fields doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders with his dislocated thumb. Fields’ status beyond Week 7 is “really going to come down to grip strength,” Eberflus added. We’ll look for a more concrete timeline for Fields’ return. He’s worth hanging on to in most fantasy leagues for the time being. Undrafted rookie QB Tyson Bagent figures to make his first career start this weekend. He had a solid preseason but looked overmatched against the Vikings on Sunday, averaging 5.9 yards per pass attempt with an INT and a lost fumble. Chicago skill-position players will be tough to trust in fantasy lineups with Bagent under center.
