11/16/2014 5:41:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett was not really involved in the offense on Sunday.
Insight: Bennett caught four passes for 29 yards. After a strong start to the season, Bennett has six receptions for 74 yards the past two weeks.
 
11/13/2014 3:36:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett was back at practice Thursday.
Insight: Bennett has been dealing with bruised ribs and missing a Wednesday practice is old hat. He should be fine for Sunday's game against the Vikings and improve on last week's disappointing results.
 
11/10/2014 10:38:00 AM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett was official active for the Sunday night game against Green Bay, but not very.
Insight: Bennett caught two balls for 45 yards. The Bears could do nothing on offense and even less on defense in losing 55-14 to the Packers.
 
11/9/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett is active for the Sunday night game against Green Bay.
Insight: We never saw this rib issue keeping him out of Sunday's matchup with division rival Green Bay. Bennet has been a solid contributor this season with 47 receptions for 517 yards and five scores in eight games.
 
11/6/2014 3:00:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has been added to the injury report with bruised ribs.
Insight: We don't see this keeping him out of Sunday's matchup with division rival Green Bay. Bennet has been a solid contributor this season with 47 receptions for 517 yards and five scores in eight games.
 
10/26/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett led the team in receiving druing Week 8's loss to New England.
Insight: He had six receptions for 95 yards and a score. It was Bennett's first touchdown since Week 3, a nice sight for owners.
 
10/26/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett (hamstring) is active for Week 8's matchup against the Patriots.
Insight: There really wasn't much question about his availability, and now Bennett will look to get back on track against a banged up linebacker group, from New England.
 
10/23/2014 5:24:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett returned to practice on Thursday according to the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: Bennett got a limited practice session in on Thursday, so he is on track to play in Week 8. He has not scored since Week 3, but he continues to get catches and yards. If someone other than Matt Forte scores against New England this week, it will likely be Bennett since the giant Bears receivers draw Darrelle Revis.
 
10/22/2014 2:57:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett (hamstring) was absent from Wednesday's practice.
Insight: He played his normal amount of stats during Week 7 against Miami, so it is tough to figure out when he got hurt. Assuming Bennett is able to return to practice this week, he will be a low-end TE1 for Week 8 against the Patriots.
 
10/19/2014 7:02:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett had 58 receiving yards on Sunday versus Miami.
Insight: Bennett had five catches but did not score as Matt Forte scored both of the Chicago touchdowns. He is still a TE1 in all formets.
 
10/13/2014 5:54:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett had 52 receiving yards during Sunday's win against Atlanta.
Insight: He did so on four catches. While his numbers have took a little bit of a hit over the past two weeks, Bennett maintains his TE1 status, in Chicago's high-octane offense.
 
9/28/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Bears tight end Martellus Bennett led the team with 11 targets, nine catches and 134 receiving yards against the Packers in Week 4.
Insight: Bennett nearly scored as well, but the Packers tackled him near the goal line as time expired in the first half. Bennett has definitely become a TE1 and is close to stud status. He must be in the lineup every single week.
 
8/10/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett has been reinstated.
Insight: The Bears suspended him indefinitely for getting into an on-field fight with rookie first-round pick Kyle Fuller. His suspension lasted five days. The 27-year-old has the physical tools to be a top tight end, but he's behind Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte in the passing hierarchy. His 2013 numbers -- 65 catches, 759 yards, five touchdowns -- represent his 2014 ceiling.
 
8/5/2014 2:34:00 PM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett has been fined and suspended by the Bears for "conduct detrimental to the team."
Insight: We don't know for how long, but it appears to be the result of an altercation with rookie Kyle Fuller at Monday's practice. He remains a low-end TE1, unless these problems continue.
 
11/17/2013 12:24:00 PM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle) is active Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: Bennett has been banged up this season but hasn't missed any time. However, his production has waned over the last three weeks and the Ravens have shut down opposing tight ends over the last four games. He's a low-end TE1.
 
10/20/2013 11:59:00 AM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) missed practice during the week, but will be in uniform for Sunday's game with Washington.
Insight: Bennett had 10 days to recover from his sore knee and is ready to go. He's been a reliable tight end option for five of six weeks and against the Redskins he should make that six for seven.
 
10/16/2013 7:06:00 PM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) did not practice Wednesday.
Insight: Bennett suffered a knee injury in Week 5 but was able to play four days later last Thursday against the Giants and had six catches. He should be able to play in Week 7 against the Redskins and is a top-10 tight end option.
 
10/10/2013 7:04:00 PM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants.
Insight: Bennett's knee injury isn't considered serious but the quick turnaround from Sunday's game put his status in question. He has a great matchup Thursday and fantasy owners can roll with him as a top-12 tight end against his former team.
 
10/9/2013 7:06:00 PM
Description: Chicago tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) is headed for a game-time call Thursday against New York. SOURCE: ESPN Chicago
Insight: The short turnaround after Sunday's loss to New Orleans certainly doesn't make things easy for Bennett's fantasy owners. If Bennett can play through the pain, he should be good for at least a touchdown against the hapless Giants.
 
Hot9/19/2013 3:46:00 PM
Description: Bears TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) fully participated in Thursday's practice.
Insight: Bennett was limited Wednesday but was never expected to miss Sunday's game. The tight end has been a favorite receiver of Jay Cutler in the red zone so far and has three TDs in two games.
