Patriots | Martellus Bennett limited again at practice

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 16:52:01 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: In his first game since re-joining the Patriots, Bennett managed to catch all three of his targets for 38 yards, but that's about the most you can expect from the 30-year-old with Gronk around. Thus, Bennett is simply a TE2 that is more of a dart toss than anything else.

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 17:06:06 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett likely will continue to play despite his shoulder injury and could see a decent amount of targets against the Oakland Raiders. Owners in most leagues should consider Bennett a No. 2 fantasy tight end and can keep him on the bench this week.

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 09:14:19 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is expected to play against the Denver Broncos in Week 10, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett joined the team earlier this week but is familiar with the offense since he played for the Patriots last season. It is not known how many targets he will receive during the game, so owners may want to see his role before considering him a starting option.

Packers | GB could go after Martellus Bennett's bonus

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 06:29:38 -0800

The Green Bay Packers are expected to go after the signing bonus of TE Martellus Bennett, who was released last week due to a failure to reportedly disclose a pre-existing medical condition, according to multiple sources. It is uncertain if the Packers are seeking repayment of the entire $6.3 million signing bonus or the $4.2 million prorated portion of the three-year, $21 milliion contract. Green Bay has not officially filed the grievance against Bennett, who is now a member of the New England Patriots, but they have more than a month to do so.

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 16:23:15 -0800

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) plans to travel with the team for their Week 9 game against the Denver Broncos but his status for the game remains uncertain.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett is listed as questionable for the game because of his shoulder injury, so owners should check the inactive list for a final decision. He should be familiar with the offense since he played for the Patriots last season. Owners probably should avoid him since he is may be limited.

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 05:08:40 -0800

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was cut by the Green Bay Packers because of a torn rotator cuff, according to sources. He could try to play through it or could land on Injured Reserve.

Patriots | Martellus Bennett claimed by Patriots

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 13:33:02 -0800

Former Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett was claimed off waivers by the New England Patriots Thursday, Nov. 9, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett played well for the Patriots last season and should enter the lineup once he is fully healthy. He should receive some targets during game but will be splitting the targets with several other pass catchers. He can be owned in most leagues but should be seen as a No. 2 tight end most weeks but could have more value if Chris Hogan misses extended time.

Fantasy Tip: Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers will each receive playing time on offense with Bennett released, but neither should be owned in fantasy leagues.
