Bears TE Bennett gains nothing in Sunday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett had not been blanked in terms of yardage since Dec. 4, 2011. That is, until Sunday.

Bennett was targeted just three times and caught only one pass for no yards in the defeat to Detroit.

He still needs 143 yards in Week 17 at Minnesota to hit 1,000 for the season.


Martellus Bennett slows down a bit in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett came tumbling back down to Earth in Week 15, as the Saints held him to just three catches in a loss.

Bennett, who had 193 yards on 20 catches with a touchdown in his previous two games, was a victim of Jay Cutler's struggles Monday. He had just four catches for 36 yards, and was targeted only six times, his lowest total in four games, though he did haul in a two-point conversion to add some extra value.

Bennett came out of the gates red hot this season, scoring four touchdowns in the first three games, but has just two in 11 games since. Still, he is the team's No. 2 receiver at this point, now that Brandon Marshall is down. He's got solid enough matchup in Week 16, against a Bears team he had 109 yards against three weeks ago, so keep him active in all Fantasy formats even after his disappointing showing Monday. 


Bears TE Martellus Bennett held to 36 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett was a victim of Chicago's offensive futility Monday night. He caught four of six targets for 36 yards in the 31-15 loss to the Saints, marking the fourth time in the past six games he's been held under 50 yards.

Bennett plays the Lions on Sunday.


Bears TE Martellus Bennett hauls in 12 balls Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett hauled in 12 receptions Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Bennett wound up being Jay Cutler's go-to target with Brandon Marshall sidelined. Marshall left the contest in the second quarter, giving Bennett a larger role in the passing game. He finished with 84 yards and a score. Bennett's touchdown actually came with Marshall still in the game. In the first quarter, he hauled in a 12 yard score against his former team. With the performance, Bennett broke the Bears single season record for receptions by a tight end. 

He'll look to continue the trend Week 15 against the Saints. 


Martellus Bennett, Chris Conte among Bears' actives


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) The Bears will have tight end Martellus Bennett and safety Chris Conte Week 14 against the Cowboys.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Both of Bennett's 100-yard games have come in 2014. He had a career-high 134 yards Week 4 against the Packers.

The Bears are back in action Week 14 vs. Dallas.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The first pass to Bennett came on the team's second drive and was intercepted, setting the tone for the night. The tight end saw at least one target in each quarter, so the Bears didn't shy away from using him in a game that was out of hand by halftime. He'll look for a better result in Week 11 against the Vikings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bennett has 47 catches for 517 yards and five touchdowns through eight games.


Martellus Bennett reminds you to start him


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) How many teams are in your league? For most of you, no fewer than 10. And how many of those teams start a tight end? All of them, right?

So then for the Bears' Martellus Bennett to sit in Fantasy, as happened in 33 percent of CBSSports.com leagues in Week 8, there would need to be 10 tight ends better than him.

How many do I count? Well, Julius Thomas for sure. Rob Gronkowski. I'll give you Jimmy Graham even with the injury. Greg Olsen is a safe call. Can't really dispute Antonio Gates with all those touchdowns. But then who? Delanie Walker? Larry Donnell? Dwayne Allen?

Even if I give you those three, which is a stretch, that brings the number to eight. So then why was Bennett sitting in one-third of CBSSports.com leagues for his six-catch, 95-yard, touchdown-scoring performance Week 8 at New England? You got me.

It probably had to do with him going four straight games without a touchdown, but he went for 134 yards in the first of those games and more than 50 in the last two. His only bad game was Week 5 at Carolina, when he had three catches for 17 yards, and his targets have remained high throughout.

I'm guessing when the Bears return from their bye in Week 10, he'll be nearly 100 percent started.


Bears TE Martellus Bennett turns in strong game Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Bennett managed to hual in the score while falling to the ground. He not only was able to catch the ball, but also managed to make sure it didn't touch the ground during the catch. 

Bennett is on a bye Week 9.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
