Packers | Green Bay has embraced TE in red zone

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 20:02:30 -0700

Green Bay Packers TEs Andrew Quarless (13) and Richard Rodgers (14) ranked among the team's top three players in red zone targets in 2014 in 2015, respectively, before Jared Cook's injury-plagued 2016 campaign ruined the streak. Martellus Bennett signed a three-year, $21 million contract to be the team's top tight end in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: There seems to be a notion Aaron Rodgers doesn't throw to his tight ends nearly enough, but owners need to keep in mind the last time he had someone as talented as Bennett was when Jermichael Finley was healthy in 2011. Bennett is being drafted like a low-end TE1, but he has arguably the best shot among tight ends drafted after the first four or five rounds to compete with the likes of Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce and Jordan Reed.

Packers | Aaron Rodgers excited for TE group

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 20:36:45 -0700

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said the additions of TE Martellus Bennett and TE Lance Kendricks give the offense more flexibility to run two-tight end sets. "Both guys can put their hand on the ground and go and block guys really well but also add that dimension in the passing game," Rodgers said.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett should headline the tight end group, and he is probably the best tight end Rodgers will have worked with. He should be able to produce TE1 numbers in Green Bay's potent passing attack.

Packers | Martellus Bennett connecting with Aaron Rodgers

Mon, 29 May 2017 13:25:18 -0700

Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett has made it a priority to get to know QB Aaron Rodgers this offseason. Bennett said he's had a lot of conversations with his new quarterback and has really made an effort to simply befriend Rodgers. "I'm just trying to do my job, make sure I can keep up with [my teammates], Bennett said. "They've been doing a good job for so long, I'm just trying to get in where I fit in right now."

Fantasy Tip: Bennett played well behind and in place of Rob Gronkowski last year, finishing as a TE1 when he wasn't even technically a starter. As the clear frontrunner to start at tight end with Rodgers throwing his way, Bennett is in a prime spot to make it to TE1 territory again.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett closes door on return

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 20:20:22 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent TE Martellus Bennett announced on his Twitter account Wednesday, March 8, he will not return to the Patriots in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: This news became fait accompli the moment the Patriots' trade for Dwayne Allen was announced on Wednesday. Bennett is arguably the best free-agent tight end on the market and is expected to command a fairly sizable deal, so he doesn't figure to be out of work for long. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders and New York Giants are reportedly the three teams pursuing him the hardest. Any of those situations should allow him to be a low-end fantasy TE1 in 2017.

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 18:43:17 -0800

Patriots | New England wants Martellus Bennett back

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 09:41:39 -0800

The New England Patriots remain interested in bringing back impending free-agent TE Martellus Bennett. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders are reportedly also interested in Bennett as well.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett would almost certainly have to accept less money to stay with the Patriots than he would get from the Jaguars and Raiders, if only because New England already has Rob Gronkowski and doesn’t usually get into free-agent bidding wars. Regardless of where he lands, Bennett should be considered a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 in fantasy this summer.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett will test free agency

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 16:49:47 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent TE Martellus Bennett will test the free-agent market. Based on his asking price, he could be with a different team next season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett will likely be the most coveted free-agent tight end this offseason, so he's bound to receive some attractive offers from teams other than the Patriots. Bennett was hindered by Rob Gronkowski in 2016, when Gronk was healthy, but he has proven to be a capable starter. He scored three touchdowns in one game even with Gronk active. Wherever Bennett plays and/or starts, he has TE1 potential.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett may not re-sign

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 15:39:43 -0800

The New England Patriots are interested in re-signing impending free-agent TE Martellus Bennett but may not be willing to get into a bidding war for him if other teams are interested, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett should receive interest from teams as long as he recovers from the injuries he suffers during the season. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 fantasy tight end next season depending on his role.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett getting franchise tag?

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 00:25:36 -0800

There is speculation the New England Patriots may use the franchise tag on TE Martellus Bennett for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: The speculation, which comes from CBS Sports reporter Joel Corry, is centered around the health of TE Rob Gronkowski. The tag amount is projected at just under $10 million. Whatever the case, Bennett rates as a solid TE1 as long as he stays in the New England system.

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 15:45:25 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Feb. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been slowed by injury in recent weeks, and that's been evident in his stats over the past few games. In fact, in New England's two playoff contests, the nine-year veteran has managed just 36 receiving yards combined with no touchdowns. He'll be out there on Sunday but his performance as of late indicates he might not be much of a factor.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett has been a capable starter ever since Rob Gronkowski went down in late November.

Keep tabs on Bennett this offseason, though, incase Gronk is still dealing with his nagging injuries and subsequent back surgery.

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 23:53:09 -0800
