Are you surprised? Are you?

Well, Liz Loza thinks you shouldn’t be. It’s Ryan Pace. It’s the Bears.

We’ll keep this short. Cole Kmet is an interesting prospect, but now he’ll have to play behind Jimmy Graham — the same Jimmy Graham who was signed to a perplexing two-year deal despite clearly losing a step (and signaling the end of Trey Burton’s time in Chicago). Not much to like from a fantasy perspective here.
