Backup running back
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.
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.
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.
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.
