Earl Bennett ruled out of Week 14 with concussion: Fantasy implications

David Banks

Earl Bennett has been officially ruled out of Sunday's game, further depleting the Bears' depth chart. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears WR Earl Bennett (concussion) has been officially ruled out of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Bennett left the Sehawks game in the first quarter with a concussion and has not been able to practice this week. There is no set timetable for his return.

With Alshon Jeffery and Devin Hester nursing injuries of their own, it's uncertain who will start opposite Brandon Marshall.

Fantasy Impact: As Marshall and Jay Cutler proved last Sunday, they don't really need a No. 2 WR to "take attention away"--Marshall has racked up 22 catches and 257 yards the last two games with the other starting position being a revolving door.

Whoever replaces Bennett this week is not going to be a worthwhile gamble in the fantasy playoffs. Keep rolling with Marshall as a WR1.
