Bears | Martellus Bennett scores two TDs

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 23:22:57 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett had five catches for 54 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 3 win against the New York Jets Monday, Sept. 22. He leads the team with 20 catches for 161 yards and four touchdowns after the first three weeks of the season. He is one touchdown shy of his career highs, set in 2012 and 2013. "I'm a lot better player than I was last year," Bennett said. "Last year I wasn't that good. I was all right, but this summer I took a whole lot of time to work on my game."

Fantasy Tip: Bennett is a nice tight end to own in this offense. If teams choose to take Brandon Marshall or Alshon Jeffery out of the game plan, Jay Cutler will happily look to Bennett down field.

Chicago Bears TE Zachary Miller took advantage of a suspension by TE Martellus Bennett and caught six passes for 68 yards in the team's first exhibition game.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett's unfortunate incident may not cost him the top TE job, but Miller may have played himself into a role on the team. The coaching staff took notice of the performance, and unless Miller really fades the rest of the way he might be worth watching.
