Bears | Martellus Bennett skipping OTAs

Wed, 27 May 2015 18:34:03 -0700

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.
