Bennett was targeted just three times during a game where the Bears lost starting quarterback Jay Cutler to a groin injury early in the first half. With Josh McCown entering the game in relief, Bennett finished the game with just one catch for seven yards, but the catch resulted in a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
Fantasy Spin: It wasn't the performance that Bennett's fantasy owners had in mind versus a Redskins defense that was gashed by tight ends early in the season. Now, the bigger issue is what happens with Bennett going forward, now that the possibility looms that Jay Cutler could be out an extended period of time with a groin injury. Bennett was able to give his fantasy owners something in return this week, but it would be playing with fire to insert him into the starting lineup if there won't be a reasonable volume coming his way.
The Bears have a Week 8 bye to come up with a new game plan, and Bennett's fantasy owners would be wise to figure that out as well in his absence.
