Fantasy Tip: For Jay Cutler and new offensive-minded head coach Marc Trestman, Bennett provides protection and playmaking ability at what has been an erratic position in Chicago. Bennett, who emerged as a red zone threat while teasing a breakout last year, ranks as a borderline fantasy starter with the upside of an elite option. He's in a fine situation to grow.
