Patriots | Martellus Bennett will test free agency

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 16:49:47 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent TE Martellus Bennett will test the free-agent market. Based on his asking price, he could be with a different team next season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett will likely be the most coveted free-agent tight end this offseason, so he's bound to receive some attractive offers from teams other than the Patriots. Bennett was hindered by Rob Gronkowski in 2016, when Gronk was healthy, but he has proven to be a capable starter. He scored three touchdowns in one game even with Gronk active. Wherever Bennett plays and/or starts, he has TE1 potential.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been a capable starter ever since Rob Gronkowski went down in late November.
