Several role players chip in for Bears
by Igor Mello |

The Bears received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's loss to the Packers in Week 17.

Backup running back Michael Bush rushed for 11 yards on two carries. Tight end Martellus Bennett caught his only target for 15 yards while Marquess Wilson caught just one pass for a gain of 10 yards. It was Wilson's second reception of the season.

Martellus Bennett paces Bears with 85 receiving yards
by Larry Hartstein |

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett caught five passes for a team-high 85 yards in the loss to the Eagles, his third solid game in succession. Bennett has 16 catches for 199 yards over the past three weeks.

Bennett drew eight targets, one fewer than Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Bennett's longest reception went 30 yards. However, he has not scored since Week 12.

Bennett plays the Packers in Week 17.

Martellus Bennett too risky to start
by Larry Hartstein |

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has one touchdown catch in his last seven games entering Week 16 at Philadelphia. The matchup is not kind, either, as the Eagles give up the fourth fewest Fantasy points (5.7 per game) to tight ends.

Tight ends have scored just twice against Philly, and have been held under 50 receiving yards as a group nine times.

Bennett is coming off one of his better games. He caught all six of his targets for 71 yards, his highest yardage total since Week 4, in the win at Cleveland. But he's too risky to start in Fantasy's championship week unless you play in a two-tight end league.

Martellus Bennett has 71 yards in Week 15 win
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett caught six passes for 71 yards in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Browns. Bennett was targeted six times and lost a fumble in the third quarter (which was run back for a touchdown). 

The 71 receiving yards were the third-most of the season for Bennett, and his most since Week 4. He now has 659 receiving yards on the season -- a career high. 

The Bears face the Eagles in Week 16.

Martellus Bennett an unreliable option
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has been a different player since the team's Week 8 bye. Prior to the break, Bennett had five games of six or more Fantasy points, with two double-digit games and four touchdowns. 

Since the bye, however, Bennett has just one game with six or more points, and has scored just once. His Week 15 matchup against the Browns brings with it some hope, but so did his Week 13 matchup against the Vikings (when he finished with 14 total yards). 

The Browns have allowed four touchdowns over the last four games to opposing tight ends, but haven't given up 50 yards to the position since Week 7. Additionally, the Browns have allowed their touchdowns in bunches; the eight touchdowns tight ends have scored against the Browns this season have come in just four games. 

Bennett started the season strong, but has faded lately. Even with a somewhat promising matchup, he's still best left on the bench in most formats.
