Bears TE Martellus Bennett held to 58 yards in Week 8 defeat
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett was held under 60 receiving yards for the fifth time this season in a Week 7 home loss to Miami on Sunday.

Bennett came down with three of his five receptions when the game was well out of hand on the final drive. One of those grabs went for 21 yards, his longest gain of the afternoon. He was targeted eight times and finished with 58 yards in a 27-14 defeat. He has 422 receiving yards on the year.

Bennett and the Bears will look to get back on track Week 8 at New England.

Martellus Bennett still a steady, reliable option
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett had the look of an elite option at the position early in the season, but has been unable to keep up the pace. However, as he showed yet again in Week 7 against the Dolphins, he can still do enough to be a worthwhile option for most Fantasy owners.

Bennett had double figures in Fantasy scoring in each of his first four games, but has settled in for five in each of the last two. That isn't great, but he was still targeted eight times in each game and has posted just one game with less than five Fantasy points in seven games.

Bennett is by no mean's one of the best Fantasy tight ends around, but that doesn't mean he can't be consistently useful at a position where consistently useful options are at a premium. Keep him active heading into Week 8.

Martellus Bennett scores two-pointer in Week 6 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett caught four of his eight targets for 52 yards and added a two-point conversion in his team's 27-13 win over the Falcons in Week 6.

Bennett's best play in the game came on a third-and-11 at the end of the third quarter, as the tight end picked up 25 yards to extend the team's final scoring drive, capped by a two-point conversion to Bennett to put the Bears up 14 points. He's up to 36 receptions and 364 yards to with four touchdowns, though he hasn't managed to catch a touchdown since grabbing two in Week 3. He'll try to get back in the TD column next week against the Dolphins.

Martellus Bennett deserves a mulligan
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Okay, so Martellus Bennett's performance in Week 5 for the Bears was a bit of a letdown. After putting up double-digit Fantasy point games like clockwork through three weeks, he managed just three receptions for 17 yards Sunday against the Panthers, by far his worst performance of the season.

Bennett was targeted five times in the passing game, but the Panthers held him to just 17 yards on three receptions -- all three represent his lowest totals for the season. Of course, Bennett was playing over his head at least a bit through the first four games, averaging 13.0 Fantasy points per game, but that doesn't mean this is the new normal. This is taking regression to a whole other level, and it is likely little more than a bump in the road.

Bennett is the third, and sometimes fourth, option in the team's passing game, but has still had 42 passes thrown his way so far. Even with Sunday's dud, he remains one of the best tight end options around.

Tight ends Martellus Bennett and Dante Rosario led a small contingent of Bears that played a role in their Sunday loss to Carolina. Both caught three passes - the former for 17 yards and the latter for 20.

Also catching a pass was veteran Santonio Holmes for six yards. Running back Ka'Deem Carey put himself in the score sheet with two carries for two yards.
