Bennett had two receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
Bennett has been on the field frequently this season, but he has not been much of a factor in the Packers' passing attack and is now averaging just over 32 receiving yards per game after six weeks of action. It's difficult to envision his production taking any sort of significant leap with Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) out for an extended period of time, though the Packers' offense could see some changes under new starter Brett Hundley.
Bennett caught three passes for a season-high 53 yards in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.
Bennett was targeted only three times Sunday, but he made the most of his opportunities, and a 33-yard catch helped him finish the day with his best yardage total since the 2017 campaign kicked off. Bennett has been pretty quiet in the passing game this year, but he has been asked to help block frequently with one or both of starting tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga sitting out each game. It's possible his role could expand some once both linemen take the field at the same time.
Bennett brought in six of seven targets for 39 yards in Thursday's 35-14 win over the Bears.
There were some nuance to Bennett's stat line, which included a team-high reception total. On the one hand, it was encouraging to see him bring in all but one target for the second straight contest after struggling with drops in a Week 2 loss to the Falcons. Conversely, while he did post a 26-yard grab, his five other receptions went for only 13 yards, a paltry average of 2.6 yards per catch. Bennett and the Packers are clearly still fully integrating him into the team's offensive system, and the good news is that QB Aaron Rodgers has shown no hesitation in getting him involved, as his 28 targets attest. Bennett will look to make an impression against one of his old squads when Green Bay faces off with the Cowboys in a Week 5 road showdown.
Bennett caught three passes for 12 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bengals.
A week after being targeted 11 times Bennett saw only four passes thrown his direction Sunday, and he made only a blip on the fantasy radar. It was thought that Bennett would be a red-zone threat for the Packers, but through three games he has not been targeted inside the 20-yard line. Bennett is off to a slow start, but he remains the unquestioned top tight end in Green Bay.
Bennett caught five passes for 47 yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.
Bennett could have had a bigger game Sunday night, but he dropped several passes thrown his direction and finished with fewer than 50 receiving yards for the second time in as many weeks as a Packer. The good news for Bennett and his fantasy owners is that he led the Packers with 11 targets, so it's clear quarterback Aaron Rodgers is already comfortable throwing the ball in his direction often.
