Cole Kmet Catches Seven Passes In Win Over Vikings

Tuesday, November 28, 10:14 AM

Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet caught all seven of his targets for 43 yards in the team's 12-10 win over the Vikings in Week 12. This was the fourth time this season the Notre Dame alum finished with more than five catches in a game, but he was limited to just 43 yards, and 24 of those came on one reception. The 24-year-old trailed only DJ Moore in targets and has seen seven or more targets in four of the last five games. His production has been pretty stable with both Tyson Bagent and Justin Fields under center, but his ceiling is higher with Fields because of how much Fields elevates the offense's potential. The Bears are off in Week 13 and get the Lions again in Week 14, who allow the 13th-most points per game to tight ends this year. Kmet remains a solid TE1 option going forward.

Pat Freiermuth Erupts For 120 Yards Against Bengals

Sunday, November 26, 9:44 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth secured nine of 11 targets for 120 yards in a 16-10 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals. In his second game since returning from a hamstring injury, Freiermuth posted career-highs in receptions and yardage. Cincinnati has been extremely vulnerable to tight end production all season, but it is worth noting that the Steelers' offense looked much improved in its first contest without former offensive coordinator Matt Canada. Freiermuth was perhaps the biggest beneficiary of Canada's departure as quarterback Kenny Pickett frequently looked for him over the middle of the field. The third-year pro should be a popular addition off fantasy waiver wires this week and will look to keep rolling against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13.
