Earl Bennett injury update: Fantasy value zero due to concussion

Leon Halip

Earl Bennett will miss Sunday's game between the Bears and the Packers due to a concussion. We break down the fantasy implications.

Earl Bennett will miss Sunday's game between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers due to a concussion. Bennett was held out of practice throughout the week before being ruled out on Friday.

Bennett hasn't had more than 50 yards receiving in any game this season, and did not score a single touchdown until Week 13. He will miss his second straight game.

Fantasy Impact: While Bennett was a nice outlet for quarterback Jay Cutler, he really wasn't much of a fantasy option. His 4-to-6 targets per game will be dispersed among Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Devin Hester, so adjust their fantasy value accordingly. The Packers have a middle-of-the-road pass defense, so any of the three could be productive, though Marshall is the only safe fantasy starter.
