TE COLE KMET: Under 2.5 receptions (+111)

Fading Kmet has as much to do with the sophomore tight end's track record as it does with quarterback Justin Fields’ struggles and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ stout defense.

Fields has managed a putrid 76.5 passer rating when targeting Kmet this season, which is lower than his marks when targeting Jesse James and Jesper Horsted.

Name Tgt. Rec. Yds. TD Rtg.
Jesse James 6 6 58 1 146.5
Khalil Herbert 10 9 44 0 85.0
Damien Williams 7 5 38 0 84.2
Cole Kmet 28 17 155 0 75.7
David Montgomery 5 3 26 0 73.8
Darnell Mooney 41 24 349 1 64.0
Allen Robinson II 34 20 226 0 42.0
Marquise Goodwin 15 7 79 0 35.1

As for this specific matchup, the Steelers rank 15th in coverage grade against tight ends this season, and they are 10th in the same metric since Week 4, making this a tough matchup for a tight end of Kmet’s caliber. The Bears tight end's 60.7 receiving grade ranks 50th among players at the position this season, and he’s only covered this number in four of eight games.
