Dolphins | Miami unlikely to consider Martellus Bennett

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 12:56:51 -0800

Free-agent TE Martellus Bennett (Patriots) likely will not be an option for the Miami Dolphins this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett dealt with injuries last season but may still be able to find a starting job during free agency. He is a solid pass catcher when he is healthy and could be at least a No. 2 fantasy tight end in 2018.

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett is being released Wednesday, March 7, according to a source. Bennett would have been a salary cap hit of nearly $6.2 million.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett due roster bonus

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 11:25:13 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett is scheduled to receive a $2 million roster bonus March 14. The team would save $6.2 million in salary cap space if they release Bennett.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett's future with the team may depend on what Rob Gronkowski decides regarding retirement. Bennett is a solid tight end when he is healthy and could start for a team in 2018 if he becomes a free agent. He can be at least a No. 2 fantasy tight end and could be a starter depending on his role.

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 14:03:05 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 27, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett's weird and whacky season has finally ceased. This won't have much of an impact on the fantasy landscape in New England. Rob Gronkwoski will continue to get his and is the No. 1 fantasy tight end as long as he's healthy.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett won't play in Week 12

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 05:57:36 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) will not play in Week 12's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett was listed as doubtful on the injury report after being held out of the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week, so his deactivation comes as no surprise. When healthy, he should be considered a TE2 in deeper fantasy leagues.
