2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Despite a highlight reel play that will forever be the bane of Cowboys fans, the Jared Cook experiment in Green Bay came to a quick end. In comes Martellus Bennett, coming of a Super Bowl victory, to provide the Packers with a steady veteran presence who's two-way game will fit perfectly with what his team wants to do. Some guys just have all the luck, as Bennett goes from one Hall of Fame quarterback to another. Bennett gives Aaron Rodgers something he hasn't had since Jermichael Finley was forced to retire. Bennett is athletic enough to beat linebackers, big enough to challenge DBs and savvy enough to get open in the red zone. He had a fantastic first half of the year in 2016, before dual ankle injuries sapped him of his play making ability. He still managed 700 yards and 7 touchdowns, which constituted an average season. I really think those 2016 numbers are the floor for Bennett in this offense. The tight end position is a mess again, and Bennett possesses one of the safer floors at the position. He won't catch 90 passes like Travis Kelce, or score 14 touchdowns like Gronk might, but he's going to work very well with Rodgers, and give fantasy owners a solid TE1 option.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Gronk gets in a limited practice Thursday
Sidelined by illness
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 23, 4:30 pm

New England Patriots
Rob Gronkowski (illness) was also a limited participant at practice, while TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder/hamstring) did not participate. (ESPN - Mike Reiss)

FFToday's Take: There's been nothing to suggest Gronk won't be ready for Week 12 versus the Miami Dolphins. Although his fantasy production has been lacking lately, he is still a top-three play at tight end regardless of his matchup. Bennett is a low-end TE2 play at best if Gronk plays.


Martellus Bennett back with New England
Claimed off waivers from Green Bay
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 9, 7:00 pm

New England Patriots
Former Packers’ TE Martellus Bennett claimed on waivers by the New England Patriots, per source. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Dwayne Allen has yet to catch a pass and Bennett is regarded as one of the league's best run-blocking tight ends, so the former could be on the way out of Foxboro soon. Bennett is one season removed from posting 55 catches for 701 yards and seven touchdowns with the Patriots during a season in which Rob Gronkowski struggled to stay healthy. Gronk has stayed healthy for the most part this season, so Bennett will likely be a high-upside TE2 at best until something changes.


Injury Martellus Bennett out for Week 10
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 8, 2:10 pm

Green Bay Packers
Packers coach Mike McCarthy says TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is out this week vs. #Bears. He’s still getting opinions on his injury. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Bennett was scratched in Week 9 as well. Given his week-to-week nature and lack of explosiveness in the Packers passing game, Bennett can be safely dropped in most 12-team redraft leagues. Richard Rodgers and Lance Kendricks will hold down tight end duties but neither are viable fantasy options.
