Earl Bennett was taken off the injury reports and will play on MNF. We break down the fantasy implications.
Chicago Bears WR Earl Bennett (illness) was removed from the injury lists on Saturday and will definitely play on Monday Night Football against the Detroit Lions. Bennett was excused from Friday's practice with an undisclosed illness, but returned to a full session Saturday and is ready to go.
How much he produces is another question. Bennett has just six catches for 82 yards and zero TDs on the season.
Fantasy Impact: Even with the Bears' injuries and questionable depth at WR, Bennett is still not expected to be a factor. He's been inactive for three games with a hand injury and will presumably play in the slot (with Devin Hester starting opposite Brandon Marshall).
If your fantasy team is counting on Bennett, your fantasy team was in a pretty sorry state to begin with.
