Ben Braunecker: Clears waivers, joins practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker signed with the Bears' practice squad Monday after clearing waivers, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Braunecker played 13 games last season, making four catches for 41 yards. With just one reception this preseason, it comes as no surprise that the Bears were alright letting Braunecker go since veterans Zach Miller and Dion Sims along with 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen filling their tight end corps.

Bears' Ben Braunecker: Quiet rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker finished his rookie season with four receptions for 41 yards while being targeted in just three games.

Even though the Bears lost Zach Miller to injury in Week 11, Dan Brown took over as the primary receiving option at tight end while Braunecker saw very limited opportunity as a receiver. On the season, he caught four of six targets with a long reception of 14 yards. He's under contract with the team for one more year, and is often the case with young tight ends, he certainly could see improvement, so it's possible that he could eventually emerge into a viable fantasy option.

Bears' Ben Braunecker: Targeted twice in Sunday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker caught one pass for 14 yards Sunday against the Titans.

Braunecker was targeted twice out of seven passes that went to three different Chicago tight ends. The rookie would need to have a productive game or two before being considered as a possible fantasy option.

Bears' Ben Braunecker: Set to fill pass-catching role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Braunecker is slated to fill in as the Bears' pass-catching tight end after the team was forced to place Zach Miller (foot) on injured reserve, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

Braunecker, an undrafted rookie out of Harvard, has recorded just one reception for eight yards on the year before Miller's injury. Logan Paulsen figures to split snaps with Braunecker at tight end, although the latter projects to claim most of the fantasy value as the pass-catching option. With quarterback Jay Cutler (shoulder) highly unlikely to play Sunday, Braunecker is in line to catch passes from Matt Barkley in Week 12 against the Titans.
