Cole Kmet’s early season lull appears to be in his rearview mirror. Before his first touchdown of 2022 against Dallas in Week 8, the Bears tight end had gone 28 straight games without a receiving touchdown. Kmet now seems to be developing into Justin Fields’ No. 1 option.
Kmet has been on the field for 92.9% of offensive snaps, the most by any skill player for Chicago. As the offense has expanded its capabilities with Fields’ growth over the last four weeks, Kmet’s opportunities have increased, the story said. It went on to say Kmet had put in countless hours perfecting his connection with Fields throughout the offseason.
