Most Recent Shark Bites

Bears WR Allen Robinson has been activated from the COVID list. He figures to siphon a few targets from WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet this weekend, but A-Rob isn't a fantasy option vs. the Giants.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Friday that QB Nick Foles will start Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. QB Andy Dalton (left hand, groin) is out for Week 16, while QB Justin Fields (ankle) was unable to practice on Thursday or Friday. Nagy said that Fields might be active on Sunday, but it'd be as Foles' backup. Foles made 7 starts for the Bears last season, averaging 238 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT on a 66% completion rate and 5.9 yards per attempt.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has been placed on the COVID list. He'll likely miss Monday night's game vs. the Vikings. Robinson, of course, has been a major disappointment this season and shouldn't have been in your Week 15 fantasy plans. His absence is a slight upgrade for WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (groin) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. So that groin shouldn’t be an issue against the Cardinals on Sunday. Kmet is a solid target bet with WRs Allen Robinson and Marquise Goodwin out.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (groin) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We're expecting Kmet to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (groin) did not practice on Wednesday. He don't have any other info on this groin issue. We'll see if Kmet gets back on the practice field tomorrow.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd figure to serve as Chicago’s #2 and #3 WRs but aren’t fantasy options. WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet should pick up extra targets with Robinson out.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens after missing practice all week. He obviously needs to be on fantasy benches. Robinson's absence will make a thin Chicago pass-catching corps even thinner. WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet should pick up extra targets.

Bears HC Matt Nagy tested positive for COVID. We'll see if he can get cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. OC Bill Lazor has been calling plays for Chicago the past few weeks, so there's not much of a fantasy impact here.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Wednesday that he anticipates TE Cole Kmet's role growing in 2021. His playing time spiked late in his rookie year, with Kmet registering a 70+% snap rate in each of final 8 games (including playoffs). But the production didn't follow. Kmet averaged just 5 targets, 3.1 catches and 22.5 yards per game over that stretch. There's plenty of room for those numbers to grow this year, especially in Chicago gets better QB play from Justin Fields and/or Andy Dalton.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Packers. The rookie was limited in the final 2 practices of the week, adding some risk to his Week 17 outlook.

Bears TE Cole Kmet (shoulder) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Packers. He was a full-go on Wednesday but limited on Thursday and Friday. We’re expecting Kmet to suit up for this win-and-in game, but check back Sunday to make sure he’s active.

The Bears selected Notre Dame TE Cole Kmet in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Kmet goes 6’6, 262 pounds and tested as a 77th percentile athlete at the Combine, where he ran a 4.70-second 40-yard dash with a 37-inch vertical. He played both baseball and football for Notre Dame, emerging as the Irish’s top TE this past season. Kmet hauled in 43 balls for 515 yards and 6 scores, ranking 9th in yards per route run and 6th in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grade among 18 of this class’ top TEs. He doesn’t strike us as a high-upside fantasy prospect, and this isn’t a very inspiring landing spot. Kmet figures to sit behind Jimmy Graham this year but could take over as Chicago’s lead TE by 2021.
