Johnny Mundt Stays Busy In Loss To Lions

Monday, January 8, 1:23 PM

Minnesota Vikings tight end Johnny Mundt had an elevated role yet again in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Detroit Lions on Sunday with T.J. Hockenson (knee) out. The 29-year-old had season-highs in catches (five) and receiving yards (58) while drawing six targets. His 58 receiving yards finished second on the team behind receiver Justin Jefferson's 192 yards. In Week 17, Mundt had four catches for 39 yards and his first touchdown of the year. Fellow tight end Josh Oliver also had two receptions for 31 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss. Mundt will be venturing into free agency this March as he heads into his eighth season in the NFL. He'll be competing for a backup role with whichever organization he ends up signing with. Mundt had 17 catches for a career-high 172 yards and one touchdown in 17 games in 2023.

Cole Kmet Expected To Suit Up In Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 10:58 AM

Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet (knee) is expected to play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 18 despite being listed as questionable, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 24-year-old was active last week, too, but essentially occupied a decoy role, playing 18 percent of offensive snaps while failing to command a target. A similar scenario is unlikely this weekend. Instead, Kmet should have a full workload, putting him in the TE1 tier for fantasy purposes.
