Martellus Bennett TE CHI 7 Months

Martellus Bennett was held to one catch for 15 yards in Chicago's Week 17 loss to the Packers.

The one-catch afternoon was Bennett's first in nine games. Signed through 2016, Bennett finishes his first season in Chicago with an excellent 65/759/5 line. Although his fantasy value is fairly touchdown dependent, Bennett will return as a low-end TE1 in 2014. Every position is valuable in coach Marc Trestman's offense.

Martellus Bennett had five catches for 85 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to the Eagles.

He was targeted eight times, behind only Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Bennett nearly had a touchdown on a 30-yard catch in the third quarter, but was pushed out of bounds at the one-yard line. Despite averaging five catches and 66 yards over the past three weeks, Bennett hasn't found the end-zone since Week 12. He'll continue to play a major role in the short passing game for Week 17 against the Packers.

Martellus Bennett caught five passes for 43 yards in Week 14 versus Dallas.

Bennett saw six targets on the night and secured two passes on the opening touchdown drive. Going up against his former team, the Black Unicorn found plenty of space in the middle of the field where the Cowboys really struggle on defense. He still remains the No. 4 option in the passing game, so this is a pretty standard night at the office for Bennett. He's merely a high-end TE2.

Martellus Bennett caught four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's Week 12 loss to the Rams.

Bennett drew three looks in the red zone, and had another score overturned by penalty. He displayed some fancy body control on his seven-yard touchdown in the second quarter, ensuring the ball broke the plane of the goal line before falling out of bounds. The score was Bennett's fifth of the season, and first in four games. He'll remain a touchdown-dependent TE1 against the Vikings in Week 13.

Martellus Bennett caught four passes for 36 yards in Week 9 at Green Bay.

Bennett saw eight passes come his way. He was close to having a bigger night. Bennett was stopped at the one-yard line on a 27-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter. He also couldn't reel in a would-be 20-plus-yard gain down the seam later. After eight games, Bennett is on pace to catch 72 passes for 784 yards and eight touchdowns. All would be new career-highs. Bennett remains a TE1 simply because the tight-end crop this season is so weak.
