Martellus Bennett put in his third straight impressive performance of the season on Thursday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Martellus Bennett caught six passes for 73 yards and a touchdown against the Panthers on Thursday night. Bennett has now scored in all three games of 2012, while his receiving numbers continue to go up each game.

Fantasy Impact: If you grabbed Bennett early in the season, feel good about yourself right now. Bennett continues to be a top target for Eli Manning, especially as the Giants draw near the end zone. Even when Hakeem Nicks returns to action, Bennett will be a solid play every single week as long as he keeps up this kind of consistency. Manning knows he can trust this guy in the red zone.
