Bears | Martellus Bennett heavily involved

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 21:05:09 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett had a season-high 12 catches on 15 targets for 84 yards and a score in the team's 41-28 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett's numbers were likely inflated a bit by an injury to Brandon Marshall and a pass-happy approach that resulted from an early deficit that the Bears faced, but he has logged 20 catches over the past two games. If Marshall is forced to miss time, Bennett could be a sneaky play at tight end at FantasyScore.

Bears | Martellus Bennett's status in question

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 12:32:08 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (ribs) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been one of the Bears' top options in their passing game, but owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he is playing. Bennett will be a risky option because of the injury, but could be a solid starting option if owners are willing to spend $5,800 on FantasyScore.

Bears | Martellus Bennett limited in practice

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 13:46:23 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (ribs) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 6. Bennett has sore ribs but is still expected to play Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett's ($5,800, 11.6) opponent this week, the Green Bay Packers, has allowed just two touchdowns to tight ends this year, so Bennett may not be too safe a play anyway.
