Michael Bennett Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2023

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks DE Michael Bennett will have surgery Monday to repair cartilage in his right knee. Bennett's expected to miss 2-3 weeks, which would at least cost him matchups with the Bills and Patriots. DE Frank Clark saw increased playing time at New Orleans on Sunday, delivering 6 tackles (3 solo) and a sack. You'll find Clark in this week's IDP Free Agent Focus.

The Seahawks have ruled DE Michael Bennett (knee) out for Sunday's game at New Orleans. Bennett suffered the injury back in Week 6 and sat out practice this week, but he started last week's game at Arizona and played 81 snaps. So this comes as a surprise. DE Frank Clark should see significantly more snaps in Bennett's absence, though the Saints matchup isn't great for sack upside. ESPN's Sheil Kapadia reports that Bennett will get his knee checked Monday for a cartilage issue that might require surgery. Seattle will also miss S Kam Chancellor (groin) this weekend for the 3rd straight game, leaving Kelcie McCray to start in his place again.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that DE Michael Bennett is feeling "pretty good" and that his "tests came back clear" after Bennett hurt his right knee Sunday, according to the Seattle Times. It doesn't seem like Bennett is heading for any further missed time, but we'll keep an eye on his practice participation this week.

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett left Sunday's win over the Falcons with a right knee injury after taking a low block from Atlanta OT Jake Matthews that left Bennett cussing as he recounted the play after the game. Bennett did say that he doesn't think the injury is major and that he expects to play in Week 7, according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia. "A little sore, but we think he's OK," HC Pete Carroll added. "A little sore knee. We'll see what happens here in the next couple days."

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor (pelvis) is inactive for today's game against the Rams. Seattle will have DE Michael Bennett active, however, and you can use him as you normally would in your IDP league.

Seahawks S Kam Chancellor (pelvis) and DE Michael Bennett (toe) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Chancellor missed practice all week and looks like a poor bet for your IDP lineup. Bennett put in a full practice Friday after limited work the previous 2 days. He seems likely to play but carries some risk with an injury that has bugged him for a while.

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett has elected to stay in Seattle on a reported 4-year $32 million deal.  The money seems like less than he could have commanded on the open market, but it certainly won't leave him impoverished.  Heading elsewhere likely would have helped Bennett's IDP value.  He ranked just 29th in the league among 4-3 DEs in snaps played in 2013, according to Pro Football Focus.  That kind of workload will limit the ceiling on Bennett's numbers.  Look for him to sit lower in our 2014 IDP rankings than his talent would indicate.

The league has suspended Seahawks DE Bruce Irvin for 4 games for violating the performance-enhancing drugs policy.  That will likely leave Seattle's defense without its top 2 sack guys from last year to open the season.  DE Chris Clemons is working his way back from an ACL tear he suffered in the playoff win at Washington.  The Seahawks added DE Cliff Avril and DL Michael Bennett in free agency, so one could slide into Irvin's pass-rushing role to open the season.  The plan has been for Bennett to man the 3-technique tackle spot.  It's also a significant blow to the IDP prospects for Irvin, who would have carried serious sleeper potential.  At least the Seahawks open with Carolina, San Francisco, Jacksonville and Houston -- not the toughest slate of pass offenses.

The Seattle Seahawks have brought in former Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Michael Bennett on a 1-year, $5 million deal. It's a much smaller pact than expected for one of the market's best D-linemen, same as DE Cliff Avril's Seattle deal. In Bennett and Avril, the Seahawks add 2 players who spent the past 2 seasons as full-time left ends. Bennett looks more the part of the typical strong side DE and plays the run much better than his fellow signee. Avril has produced many more sacks than Bennett and seems the more likely fit for Chris Clemons' role at right end. Clemons, of course, suffered an ACL tear in the playoff win at Washington. Bruce Irvin, the 1st-round pick a year ago, looks like he'll stick with his situational-rusher role. Bennett can kick inside to tackle in passing situations to get more pressure guys on the field. Seattle's D looks like it should be among the league's best units in fantasy football again in 2013.

The Bucs have said they won't apply the franchise tag to DE Michael Bennett. That makes their starting left end likely to hit the free-agent market unrestricted. Bennett has proved a strong run defender and solid fantasy performer. He doesn't have top-shelf pass-rush ability, though. Tampa Bay coaches hope Da'Quan Bowers is finally ready to start. HC Greg Schiano said his staff believes Bowers can be "a premier left end in this league." He had similar high praise for DT Gerald McCoy heading into last year. McCoy finally stayed healthy and delivered a terrific season.

Bucs LDE Michael Bennett returned to a full practice Wednesday after missing the past 2 games with a groin injury. Beat writer Roy Cummings reports, however, that rookie Da'Quan Bowers will still make his 3rd straight start this weekend against the Jaguars. Bowers has been terrific in 2 appearances with Bennett out, including a huge fantasy day in Week 13. He's a good IDP play against Jacksonville RT Guy Whimper this week.

8:10pm EST 11/25/11

Bucs LDE Michael Bennett is doubtful after missing practice all week with a groin injury. Bennett's season-low 41 snaps against the Packers in Week 11 helped rookie Da'Quan Bowers match his season high of 28 snaps. The 2nd-round pick also produced his 1st QB hit and 1st 2-pressure game of the year, according to Pro Football Focus. Look for Bowers to get more playing time with Bennett out.

Bucs LDE Michael Bennett missed Wednesday's practice because of a groin strain. Bennett played his most snaps of the season in Sunday's win over the Saints, so either this was a late-occurring injury or something minor. We'll keep an eye on his status.
