Cole Kmet Catches Two Touchdowns In Week 4

Sunday, October 1, 9:47 PM

Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet did everything he could during Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. The young tight end hauled in seven of his nine targets for 85 yards and scored two touchdowns in the loss. Kmet was tied with D.J. Moore for a team-high nine targets on the day. The Bears were able to find Kmet wide open for a few receptions early in the game. He has at least five receptions in three of the first four games this season. He should remain a viable option in fantasy leagues heading into the Week 5 matchup against the Washington Commanders.

Sam LaPorta Puts Up 56 Yards In Win

Thursday, September 28, 11:47 PM

Detroit Lions tight end Sam LaPorta caught four of his five targets for 56 yards in the Thursday Night Football win over the Green Bay Packers. It wasn't a massive boom performance for the rookie tight end, but it should keep fantasy managers in PPR leagues afloat ahead of the full Week 4 slate. LaPorta has seen at least five targets in all of his contests, which is more than can be said about a large chunk of the available tight ends on the waiver wire. He is a must-start in all matchups after being the fantasy TE2 through the first three weeks of the season.
