Bears' Ben Braunecker: Inks two-year deal with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker signed a two-year contract with the Bears on Monday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Braunecker has earned his keep as a special teams player and blocker over his three years with the Bears, but has logged just seven receptions for 83 yards across that stretch. The 25-year-old will play a depth role behind Trey Burton (groin) and Adam Shaheen in 2019.

Bears' Ben Braunecker: Restricted free agency looms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker finished the 2018 season with five receptions for 42 yards as the Bears' third-string tight end.

Braunecker has posted just 83 yards over this three years with the Bears, and he'll yet to emerge as a fantasy option. He'll be a restricted free agent this offseason, but unless he moves into a situation that allows him to be a full-time player, he won't be a fantasy option in 2019.

Bears' Ben Braunecker: Catches first pass of season in Sunday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker caught one pass for 20 yards in Chicago's 34-22 win over the Lions on Sunday.

With Dion Sims missing this game due to a concussion, Braunecker took over the primary blocking tight end role for the Bears and caught his only target of the afternoon. It's unlikely he'll be a consistent fantasy factor because Chicago rarely throws the ball to their tight ends not named Trey Burton.

Bears' Ben Braunecker: Healthy to enter Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Braunecker sat out Chicago's win over the Bills in Week 9 due to a concussion, but appears on track to clear the league's concussion protocol and suit up against the Lions on Sunday. If Braunecker is good to go, expect him to receive most of his snaps on special teams.

Bears' Ben Braunecker: Ruled out for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker (concussion) will not play Sunday against the Bills.

Braunecker sustained the concussion last week against the Jets. It appears the 24-year-old didn't clear the league's concussion protocol. Braunecker gets most of his snaps on special teams, and therefore his absence likely won't yield a significant amount of offensive work to another player.
