A Chicago Bears tight end will gain over 100 yards

This would be pretty amazing considering not a single tight end on the Chicago Bears roster recorded over 100 yards for the whole 2019 season. Could you imagine that one of the tight ends was to surpass that amount in just one game? I can.

My best guess would be that Jimmy Graham would be the guy on the squad to make this happen. Although, it is possible that Cole Kmet or Demetrius Harris could be the sneaky play here instead. Outside of the fact that the three could cancel out some yardage for the others, at least I feel confident that between the three of them they combine for 100-plus yards. That is not bold enough of a take though.

Graham is the main target in this group and should be a key matchup for Mitch Trubisky to try and exploit today. Not only will Graham be a focal point in the offense, but he will also make a big difference in the red zone. In fact, I think he finds the end zone today and reaches half the total of touchdowns the Chicago Bears tight end group achieved last season (2).
