Martellus Bennett a good Week 3 start
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Martellus Bennett is off to a stellar start through his first two games with 15 catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns on 18 targets.

He is second on the team in targets to Marshall (20) and the Bears have done a nice job featuring Bennett in the early part of the year. We hope it continues this week against a suspect Jets secondary.

The Jets haven't faced a tight end of note yet with matchups against the Raiders and Packers, but last year New York allowed seven touchdowns to opposing tight ends. There were nine tight ends against the Jets last year that had at least six targets and eight of them finished with at least eight Fantasy points in a standard league.

Bennett has at least six targets in five of his past six games going back to last season.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Martellus Bennett scores again
by Larry Hartstein |

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett scored for the second straight week Sunday night at San Francisco. Bennett hauled in seven of eight targets for 37 yards, including an easy 3-yard score to put Chicago ahead with 13:14 remaining.

Bennett, who tied for the team lead in targets, visits the Jets on Monday Night Football in Week 3.

Martellus Bennett scores TD on eight receptions Sunday
by R.J. White |

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett grabbed eight passes for 70 yards and a touchdown in his team's 23-20 overtime loss to the Bills Sunday.

Bennett opened the scoring by hauling in a 12-yard touchdown on his team's first offensive drive, with the score coming on a pitch-and-catch after a big gain by Alshon Jeffery. He remained involved throughout the game with the Bears finding room to work in the middle of the field. Bennett also may have benefited from the absence of Jeffery for much of the second half. He'll look for a similar result when the Bears head to San Francisco in Week 2.

Martellus Bennett worth starting in Week 1
by R.J. White |

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett posted career-best numbers in 2013, catching 65 passes for 759 yards while matching his career high of five touchdowns. Three of those five scores came in the first two weeks of the season, and he could be on the verge of starting off hot for the third straight season.

Bennett is in danger of getting lost offensively on a week-to-week basis, as there are only so many opportunities to go around for Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Matt Forte and the tight end. He faces a plus matchup in Week 1, with the Bills dealing with a depleted linebacker corps and the loss of free safety Jairus Byrd. While the one thing new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's defense did well in Detroit last year was defend the tight end, the Bills don't appear to have the personnel to match up with the imposing Bennett.

Bennett falls inside the top 12 in the weekly rankings of both CBSSports.con Fantasy experts, designating him as starter material in standard leagues. We could see a similar line to his opener against the Bengals last season: three receptions, 49 yards and one touchdown.

Bears reinstate Martellus Bennett
by Larry Hartstein |

The Bears reinstated tight end Martellus Bennett from his suspension, reports Bennett got suspended last Tuesday following a practice fight in which he slammed first-round pick Kyle Fuller to the ground.

"I understand what they want from me," Bennett said. "I felt like I could've handled the situation differently."
