2013 Fantasy Football Profile: Martellus Bennett Has Bright Future With Chicago Bears
Name: Martellus Bennett
Team: Chicago Bears
Position: Tight end
Years Pro: 5
Draft stock: (Rising) Bears head coach Marc Trestman is being looked upon as a savior to this Chicago offense, so Bennett is naturally garnering some praise. With that being said, you can select Bennett pretty late in most drafts, so his draft stock obviously isn’t going through the roof.
2012 fantasy impact: Without a doubt, 2012 was Bennett’s best season as an NFL tight end. In his first year with the New York Giants, Bennett eclipsed career highs in touchdowns, receiving yards and receptions. Still, he struggled with yards after the catch and wasn’t exactly looked upon as a go-to option.
Best-case scenario: Jay Cutler uses and abuses Bennett as No. 6 has been desperate for a play-making tight end ever since Greg Olsen was traded. Another career year ensues for Bennett, who is luckily under contract with the Bears for another three years.
Worst-case scenario: Bennett’s 2012 success appears to be a fluke. While he has numerous opportunities to be great in Chicago, he’s unable to make a difference and the weekly rigors of a starting job slow the Bears’ tight end down.
Where you should draft him: Unless something goes entirely wrong in training camp, Bennett is a surefire fantasy football starter this season. Bennett isn’t a top-tier tight end, yet you can snag him in the 13th round for sure.
