Earl Bennett catches one pass Week 11
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (11/17/13) Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett caught one ball Week 11 against the Ravens.
Bennett caught one pass for just 1 yard. The winds were definitely a factor on the play. Quarterback Josh McCown tried to hit Bennett on the sideline, and the pass hung up in the air and changed direction due to the wind. Bennett came up with the catch, but only picked up a yard as the change in direction forced him to go out of bounds.
Bennett will take on the Rams Week 12.
Earl Bennett limited again Sunday
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com (10/20/13) Bears wideout Earl Bennett had another mediocre performance on Sunday during the Week 7 loss at Washington. Bennett caught three passes for 24 yards in the game on four targets.
The 26-year-old Bennett has four receptions in his last three games for the Bears. Chicago has a bye Week 8 and returns Week 9 at Green Bay on Monday night.
Earl Bennett has disastrous game against Saints
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (10/6/13) Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett only caught 1 pass against the Saints, but came up short in a key situation.
With the Bears fighting to get back into the game, Bennett dropped a fourth down pass while the Bears were driving. Quarterback Jay Cutler hit Bennett on a short out route, but Bennett dropped the pass. He finished the game with just 14 yards.
Bennett will look to redeem himself Week 6 against the Giants.
Earl Bennett shouldn't be on anyone's Fantasy radar after a third straight season of mediocre production and injuries. Over the past three years he has totaled 99 catches for 1,317 yards and six touchdowns --numbers Brandon Marshall beat in one season by himself. Even if Bennett lands the slot receiver's role for the Bears he just isn't expected to be productive for Fantasy purposes. (Updated 4/25/13)
