2019 Fantasy Outlook

$Signed a four-year, $2.92 million contract with the Bears in May of 2016.
Finishes career year

December 29, 2019
Kwiatkoski notched eight tackles in the Bears' 21-19 victory over the Vikings in Week 17, and he ended the season with 76 tackles, three sacks and an interception.
ANALYSIS
Kwiatkoski was a strong IDP option after taking over the starting job at linebacker when Danny Trevathan was lost for the season in November. Largely due to opportunity, he easily posted the best season of his career, establishing career-highs in tackles and sacks, and his success could help him land a multiyear contract as he enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. His fantasy value will be determined upon his landing spot.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2016
When injuries have forced Kwiatkoski into the starting lineup during his first two years in the league, he's shown the ability to be a solid IDP option. For instance, in the last three games of 2017, he posted at least eight tackles in each contest. That said, after the team drafted Roquan Smith in the first round of the 2018 draft, Kwiatkoski will continue to serve as a second-stringer. He's not a recommended player to draft in IDP leagues, but he'll definitely be a player to monitor on the waiver wire if he's pressed into a starting role.
The Bears’ 2016 fourth-round draft choice profiles as a strong tackler, who also has solid coverage skills. However, with Jerrell Freeman and Danny Trevathan ahead of him on the depth chart, Kwiatkoski won’t have IDP value unless the team suffers injuries at inside linebacker, and he earns a starting role.
