Earl Bennett is expected to miss the Chicago Bears' Week 14 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings due to a concussion, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Bennett was forced to leave last week's game against Seattle Seahawks, but not until he hauled in his first touchdown reception of the season.
Bennett had been seeing increasing snaps in recent weeks. He caught a season-high four passes for 45 yards in the Bears' first meeting with the Vikings in Week 12.
Fantasy Impact: The Bears' receiving corps may be decimated for the game, with Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffery still working their way back after missing last week's game due to ailments of their own. Expect Brandon Marshall to receive a lot of defensive attention, as he has all season. He should see a ton of targets, making him a solid WR1 in most fantasy formats.
Unfortunately, Hester nor Jeffery, even if healthy, come highly recommended this week. Jeffery is a possible Flex option, assuming he still sees a lot of targets in the red zone, but there is a lot of potential downside coming off an injury.
