NFL Three Stars For Week 18: Tight End

3. Cole Kmet

Stat line: 4 catches, 57 yards, 1 Touchdown.

The Bears offence improved a tremendous amount in 2022, despite ending with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, and a big reason for that was the emergence of Cole Kmet, who has proved he can be a genuine TE 1 in The NFL.

2. Jordan Akins

Stat line: 4 catches, 70 yards, 2 Touchdowns.

The Texans certainly didn't have much to cheer about in their Week 18 win that cost them the No. 1 pick in this years draft, but a great performance by young tight end Jordan Akins can certainly help ease the pain, as they may have found themselves a promising young player for the future. 

1. Isaiah Likely

Stat line: 8 catches, 103 yards, 0 Touchdowns.

The Ravens understandably rested their star tight end Mark Andrews in Week 18, and got to see more of promising rookie Isaiah Likely, and if he can continue doing this, the team will no doubt be able to incorporate both of them into their offence in 2023.
