When the Chicago Bears take on the Green Bay Packers, we will be getting a new look at what the Bears' offense can be. They are bringing back their quarterback and playcaller, but new additions hope to take this offense to the next level. This could be a good sign for Cole Kmet in fantasy football week one.

According to FanDuel, Cole Kmet is tied for the 16th most expensive tight end in DFS week one. There is a real chance that he can outscore that. The main reason is the addition of the wide receivers around him. Last year, he was one of the best pass-catching options on the Chicago Bears, while this year, he is more of an afterthought.

The safety attention will shift to D.J. Moore, and if not that, it will swing to both Darnell Mooney and Chase Claypool. On top of the pass catchers, we know that any team looking to take on the Chicago Bears must first look to stop Justin Fields and the running attack.

So, all of a sudden the defensive gameplan went from Kmet being a big part, to Kmet being an afterthought. That could be because he has not broken out yet, but at age 24, he has actually produced more than most tight ends at his age.

Tight ends do not break out in the NFL until they are at the age that Kmet is about to hit now. When you factor in that he is at his best athletically and also at his lowest when it comes to opposing teams' attention, you could see Kmet having a sneaky good game.

Kmet only averages 31 yards per game in his six games against Green Bay, but the last time they played, he hauled in six passes for 72 yards.

So, Kmet is coming off his best game against Green Bay, he is about to play his best football, and the attention being on other players finally has him an easier matchup. The tight end position is tough to sort through, so some guaranteed catches would go a long way. That is why Cole Kmet is a great fantasy football start.
