Bentley finished the 2020 season with 90 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 13 games. In his third NFL season, the 2018 fifth-rounder saw regular action at inside linebacker, when healthy. Bentley's 2021 fantasy upside hinges largely on what moves the Patriots make to shore up their linebacker corps, as well as whether veteran Dont'a Hightower -- who opted out this past season -- returns to the mix.
Bentley (shoulder) is active heading into Sunday's game against the Jets. Bentley's shoulder injury forced him to miss his third game of the year Monday night against the Bills, but he's powered through the issue in time for New England's season finale. The 24-year-old enters Sunday's divisional tilt having already established career highs in tackles (83), QB hits (three), sacks (1.5) and pass deflections (two).
Bentley (shoulder) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets. Bentley's shoulder injury held him out of last week's loss to the Bills. He was subsequently limited at practice all week and looking like a true game-time decision. Anfernee Jennings would presumably draw another start at inside linebacker should Bentley ultimately have to sit out.
Bentley (shoulder) is inactive for Monday's game versus Buffalo. The 24-year-old picked up the injury during last week's matchup with Miami and will miss at least one game as a result. Anfernee Jennings could start at inside linebacker for New England in Bentley's absence.
Bentley (shoulder) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Bills, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports. Bentley was a limited participant in practice all week after suffering a shoulder injury in last Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. The 24-year-old has 83 tackles through 12 games. Anfernee Jennings (shoulder) is the next man up at inside linebacker. He's also considered questionable, so the team may need to call up a linebacker from the practice squad.
