Bennett (ankle/shoulder) was not present for practice Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Bennett has been able to play through his aches and pains, but look for the Patriots to manage the tight end's practice reps down the stretch, as the team can ill-afford to lose him for any length of time, with Rob Gronkowski having been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) caught two of four targets for four yards in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Rams. Bennett and quarterback Tom Brady nearly connected on an end-zone toss, but the play was broken up, and the tight end wound up logging his third straight quiet fantasy effort. With teammate Rob Gronkowski ruled out for the rest of the season, Bennett carries some fantasy upside down the stretch, but that's starting to look like something that will end up being game-plan-dependent, as the team's offense adjusts to to life without Gronkowski.
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Rams. As expected, Bennett will to continue to work through his aches and pains Sunday and as long he can avoid any setbacks in the coming weeks, the tight end's fantasy value should see a boost, now that teammate Rob Gronkowski has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) has been cleared to play Sunday against the Rams, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Like a number of other key members of the offense, Bennett was limited in practices this week, but that mainly seems to have been for precautionary purposes. While the injuries Bennett is dealing with could keep him at less than 100 percent health the rest of the way, he's still an expected to see a significant uptick in his snaps and targets with Rob Gronkowski (back) landing on season-ending injured reserve. He could make for an attractive option in DFS contests while his price remains relatively low.
Bennett (ankle/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams after turning in another limited practice Friday. We expect Bennett to continue to tough it out through his aches and pains Sunday and as long he can avoid any in-game setbacks, his fantasy value should remain strong going forward, with fellow TE Rob Gronkowski expected to miss the rest of the season.
