The Cowboys give up the 8th-most Fantasy points to tight ends, 9.0 per game. Tight ends are averaging 5.8 catches for 66 yards with six touchdowns vs. Dallas.
Drafted by the Cowboys, Bennett spent his first four seasons in Dallas. He faced the Cowboys last year as a member of the Giants, catching eight passes for 69 yards and a touchdown in two meetings.
Bennett has slumped after a strong start. He's not a thrilling option. Consider him a low-end TE1 in Week 14.
Bennett had an 8-yard catch in the first half called back because of offensive pass interference. He also limped off the field with an apparent leg injury in the first half, but he missed only one play before returning. All of Bennett's yards and targets came before halftime.
The Bears are back in action Week 14 vs. Dallas.
Bennett did have a touchdown Week 12 at St. Louis, but he's been relatively quiet since posting three touchdowns in his first two games. He got off to a fast start last season with the Giants before cooling off, which is a trend he's following in 2013 with the Bears.
Tight ends have put up decent numbers against the Vikings. They average 55.1 receiving yards and have totaled nine touchdowns in 11 games. Tight ends also average 9.7 Fantasy points per week, which is the fifth-highest average.
Bennett is far from being a reliable Fantasy option on a weekly basis. He's good enough to start in the weeks he has favorable matchups, like Week 13. Therefore, he can be considered a low-end Fantasy start this week.
Bennett could have had a bigger presence in the box score, but a fourth-quarter would-be touchdown was called back for holding.
This was Bennett's first touchdown since Week 7, and his first game with over 50 receiving yards since Week 6. Bennett's score was the first the Rams allowed to a tight end since Week 4.
The Bears travel to Minnesota to face the Vikings next Sunday.
