Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle) is active Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: Bennett has been banged up this season but hasn't missed any time. However, his production has waned over the last three weeks and the Ravens have shut down opposing tight ends over the last four games. He's a low-end TE1.
 
10/20/2013 11:59:00 AM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) missed practice during the week, but will be in uniform for Sunday's game with Washington.
Insight: Bennett had 10 days to recover from his sore knee and is ready to go. He's been a reliable tight end option for five of six weeks and against the Redskins he should make that six for seven.
 
10/16/2013 7:06:00 PM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) did not practice Wednesday.
Insight: Bennett suffered a knee injury in Week 5 but was able to play four days later last Thursday against the Giants and had six catches. He should be able to play in Week 7 against the Redskins and is a top-10 tight end option.
 
10/10/2013 7:04:00 PM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants.
Insight: Bennett's knee injury isn't considered serious but the quick turnaround from Sunday's game put his status in question. He has a great matchup Thursday and fantasy owners can roll with him as a top-12 tight end against his former team.

Insight: The short turnaround after Sunday's loss to New Orleans certainly doesn't make things easy for Bennett's fantasy owners. If Bennett can play through the pain, he should be good for at least a touchdown against the hapless Giants.
 
Hot9/19/2013 3:46:00 PM
Description: Bears TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) fully participated in Thursday's practice.
Insight: Bennett was limited Wednesday but was never expected to miss Sunday's game. The tight end has been a favorite receiver of Jay Cutler in the red zone so far and has three TDs in two games.
 
Hot9/17/2013 12:45:00 PM
Description: Bears TE Martellus Bennett pulled in seven passes for 76 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against Minnesota, but also came out of the game with a sore shoulder.
Insight: Bennett is expected to play in Week 3. He already has three touchdowns in two games after scoring five all last year. QB Jay Cutler should continue to look his way in the red zone and he's a viable target after Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte.
 
Hot9/15/2013 6:13:00 PM
Description: Bears TE Martellus Bennett pulled in seven passes for 76 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against Minnesota.
Insight: Bennett already has three touchdowns in two games after scoring five last year. QB Jay Cutler should continue to look his way in the red zone and as a No. 2 target after Brandon Marshall.
 
3/12/2013 4:51:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bears have reached an agreement on a four-year deal with tight end Martellus Bennett.
Insight: Bennett caught 55 passes for 626 yards and five touchdowns for New York last season. Chicago hasn't used its tight ends much in the offense since Greg Olsen left but that's likely due to its personnel at that position and issues on the offensive line that forced tight ends to pass block.
 
12/10/2012 2:56:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett has reached the end zone in two straight games after failing to hit paydirt from Week 4-12.
Insight: Bennett also has five receptions in each of the last two games. He's back in the TE1 discussion for Week 15.
 
10/12/2012 1:13:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) is at practice on Friday along with wideout Hakeem Nicks (knee).
Insight: Having both Nicks and Bennett in the lineup against the tough 49ers defense would be a huge boost. Eli Manning's value would jump the most, but with Victor Cruz, Nicks and Bennett on the field things could open up for Ahmad Bradshaw too.
 
10/11/2012 5:35:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) worked with trainers on the sideline Thursday and also put in a very limited session in practice.
Insight: Bennett said Wednesday that he expects to play Sunday against the 49ers. The tight end suffered a hyperextended knee last week against the Browns but he returned to the game to block as Ahmad Bradshaw churned out 200 yards. Bennett may play the same role this week if he suits up so he's a risky fantasy play.
 
10/9/2012 12:05:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett, who left Sunday's game in the first quarter with what appears to be a hyperextended left knee and returned to help block for Bradshaw, will get an MRI on the knee on Tuesday.
Insight: Bennett had caught a touchdown in three of the first four games this season and has 19 receptions for 217 yards. With the Giants receivers hurting, Bennett is a solid play when healthy.
 
10/7/2012 1:59:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett left Sunday's game in the first quarter with what appears to be a hyperextended left knee. His return is questionable.
Insight: Bennett had caught a touchdown in three of the first four games this season. With Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden sidelined, Bennett was likely to see a lot of targets.
 
9/20/2012 11:24:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett had another big game Thursday night against the Panthers, hauling in six balls for 73 yards and his third touchdown of the season.
Insight: Bennett has caught a touchdown in each of the first three games this season. Even with all the targets New York gives to its receivers, Bennett gets enough scraps to be a TE1 in fantasy leagues going forward.
 
9/16/2012 5:38:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett has caught a touchdown pass in each of his first two games this season.
Insight: With nine catches, 112 yards and two scores in two weeks, Bennett is making his case why he should be considered a TE1 in fantasy leagues.
 
9/5/2012 11:56:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett had a nice night against his former team Wednesday in New York's season opener against Dallas.
Insight: Bennett caught four passes for 40 yards and snared a fourth-quarter TD pass. The Giants are looking for a third option in the passing game with Mario Manningham gone, and Bennett filled that void Wednesday. The tight end is a big target and he has a good shot to catch 8-10 TD passes.
 
8/27/2012 11:59:00 AM
Description: With Travis Beckum put on the PUP list as expected, the Giants tight end position is exclusively Martellus Bennett's with only fourth-round rookie Adrien Robinson as his backup.
Insight: The Giants like to throw to their tight ends and with Bennett as the only option, he could become fantasy worthy. Last season, Giant tight ends Jake Ballard, Travis Beckum and Bear Pascoe caught 55 balls for 833 yards and five touchdowns.
 
6/1/2012 5:34:00 PM
Description: Giants tight end Martellus Bennett reportedly has arrived at OTAs weighing 291 pounds, up 26 from the 265 he's listed at.
Insight: New York had tight ends Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum both go down with ACL tears in the Super Bowl, so Bennett will compete with 2012 fourth-round pick Adrien Robinson for a starting job. However, he'll have to drop some weight if he wants to avoid being cut loose.
 
1/12/2011 9:47:00 AM
Description: There are rumors, again, that the Cowboys will put TE Martellus Bennett on the trade block. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Bennett is talented enough to be a starting consideration somewhere else. But signed cheaply for the 2011 season, the Cowboys may opt to keep him one more year and let him go in 2012.
