Martellus Bennett Fantasy Football News 2019

The Patriots have released TE Martellus Bennett, saving $6.2 million against the 2018 cap. Bennett appeared in just 2 games for the Patriots before landing on IR this past season. That followed a failed 7-game stint with the Packers. He turns just 31 this month, though, and posted a 55-701-7 line in 2016. We'll see how much interest Bennett garners on the open market and where he eventually lands.

The Patriots have placed TE Martellus Bennett on IR. He played just 2 games for New England after getting cut by the Packers earlier this month. Bennett is actually under contract through 2018, but it's unclear if the Patriots will want him back.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Dolphins. Dwayne Allen will serve as the #2 TE but isn’t a fantasy option.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He’s seen just 3 targets in both games with New England this year, so there’s not much fantasy impact here.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is active for tonight’s game against the Broncos. He’s been with the team for just 3 days but knows the offense after spending last season in New England. Bennett is just a fantasy flier tonight, but we’re curious to see how involved he is in the passing game.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Broncos. He passed his physical and put in a limited practice on Friday — less than 24 hours after joining the team. Bennett, of course, is familiar with this offense after spending last season in New England. He might be active on Sunday night, but we wouldn’t mess with Bennett in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett is dealing with a torn rotator cuff, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Bennett could try to play through it, but New England might also opt to just stick him on IR, per Rapoport. We'll see how the situation plays out, but we wouldn't bother adding Bennett to fantasy rosters right now.

The Patriots have claimed TE Martellus Bennett. He, of course, spent last season in New England, racking up 55 catches for 701 yards and 7 TDs. Bennett was a bust with the Packers this year and is dealing with a shoulder injury now. If healthy, though, he has a shot to make some noise down the stretch. He's not worth adding yet outside of deep fantasy leagues, but Bennett's status will certainly be worth monitoring.

The Packers have released TE Martellus Bennett, citing failure to disclose medical condition as the reason. That opens up Bennett to waivers and allows the team to file a grievance seeking to get some of the money back from his contract. Green Bay, meanwhile, retains Richard Rodgers and Lance Kendricks at TE. Rodgers started Monday's loss to the Lions. The offense has a ways to go before either TE gains fantasy interest.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy ruled TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) out for Week 10 on Wednesday. Bennett is still getting medical opinions on his shoulder, per McCarthy. He's droppable in fantasy leagues. TE Lance Kendricks saw 3 targets and TE Richard Rodgers 2 in Bennett's absence last week. Neither is a fantasy option vs. the Bears this Sunday.

Packers TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game against the Lions. He reportedly hurt his shoulder in practice on Tuesday and has no timetable for return. Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers will handle TE duties for Green Bay tonight.

Packers TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) missed his 3rd straight practice on Saturday and is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Lions. It's possible he misses time beyond Week 9. Feel free to drop Bennett from fantasy rosters. Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers will share TE duties vs. Detroit, but neither is a recommended fantasy option.

Packers TE Martellus Bennett has missed the first 2 practices of the week with a shoulder injury. He still has 1 more chance to get out there on Saturday ahead of Monday night's game against the Lions, but it certainly looks like Bennett is in danger of missing that one. He's been a major disappointment this season and wasn't in the TE1 mix this week anyway.

The Packers on Saturday reached a deal with former Rams TE Lance Kendricks. That came a day after the team signed TE Martellus Bennett to a 3-year deal. Kendricks proved to be a reliable, low-ceiling part of the Rams offense through his 1st 7 seasons. His arrival doesn't challenge Bennett's spot atop the Green Bay depth chart. It does suggest the Packers aren't in love with Richard Rodgers. He and Kendricks could be fighting for a 2017 roster spot. Bennett's the only member of the crew worth your fantasy football attention

The Packers signed TE Martellus Bennett to a multi-year deal. It's the 1st unrestricted free agent from another team the Packers have inked since 2012. Bennett, who turned 30 today, finished 10th among TEs in PPR points last year -- despite battling ankle and shoulder injuries. It was his 4th top-12 finish in the past 5 seasons. Bennett joins a loaded pass-catching corps in Green Bay, but Aaron Rodgers' efficiency means there are fantasy points to go around for everyone. Bennett will sit safely inside TE1 territory in the 2017 fantasy rankings.

The forecast for today's Jets-Patriots game calls for a 95% chance of rain with winds around 10 mph. That wind isn't a major concern, but it looks like this will be a sloppy game. We still don't expect the Pats to have any trouble when they take to the air, but the weather could push them further toward the run if (when?) they get out to a big lead.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Ravens, just as he has been for every game since Week 6. He put in limited practices all week, though, and should be on track to play. His tough matchup against 1 of the league's top TE defenses significantly lowers the upside. But Bennett should be available if he's in your Week 14 plans.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Rams. That ankle was certainly an issue last week, though. Bennett is just a low-end TE1, despite the absence of Rob Gronkowski.

Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams. He’ll play but isn’t at 100%. Even with Rob Gronkowski out, Bennett is just a lower-end TE1.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski will undergo back surgery on Friday, according to Pro Football Talk. No word yet one exactly what the procedure will address or how long Gronk will be sidelined, but it seems likely that he'll miss multiple weeks -- and possibly the rest of the season. This will be his 3rd back surgery since 2009 and is definitely a long-term concern. Gronk's absence should theoretically boost TE Martellus Bennett's outlook, although he's dealing with his own ankle issue.

Update: Gronk's surgery is to repair a herniated disc, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Gronk is expected to miss 2 months. That'd knock him out for the rest of the regular season and probably only give him a shot to return for the Super Bowl.
