6. Will Cole Kmet prove to be worth his contract with the Chicago Bears?

It is pretty quiet because it is such a poor season, and it is only four games, but Cole Kmet is pacing for a career year. He is up to 4.5 catches per game for 47.3 yards. He also has two touchdowns after nine in three seasons and just two after two seasons.

This season, Cole Kmet has a yards per route run of 1.7, after a 1.22 career rate, and 1.27 being his career-high.

He is clearly the third threat in this offense, and that does not appear to be changing anytime soon. The team may see Darnell Mooney emerge at some point, but he is coming off of a foot injury and is clearly a secondary option.

Chase Claypool is gone, and Kmet is better than Equanimeous St. Brown as a pass catcher. So, D.J. Moore will be the number one, but Kmet is going to have a strong season for the Chicago Bears.
