Cole Kmet impressing Bears' new coaching staff

Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy has been "very impressed" with third-year tight end Cole Kmet during spring practices, ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports.

What It Means:

"I've been very impressed with Cole," Getsy told Cronin. He continued, "Just the ability, the flexibility as a player, I think he has all that stuff. So I'm excited to see him have a bunch of different roles in our offense." Kmet started in all 17 games in 2021 and could see increased usage as a pass-catcher after the offseason departures of Allen Robinson and Jimmy Graham.

Graham's departure in particular opens up opportunities for Kmet in the red zone; Kmet scored zero touchdowns last season, while Graham's 3 receiving touchdowns ranked second-best on the team. Our models currently project Kmet to finish as the TE12 in fantasy for the 2022 season.
