Martellus Bennett injury update: Fantasy value drops without Jay Cutler

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

Martellus Bennett is still on the injury report. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle) is listed as questionable to face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. He did not practice on Thursday and was limited on Friday.

He wasn't even on the injury report on Wednesday, so the Bears are just handling him carefully. Bennett hasn't missed any games this season and has totaled 421 receiving yards and four TDs on 40 catches.

After a hot start in his first two games, Bennett has more or less disappeared. He had 10 catches and three scores in those first two and just score since. The former Dallas Cowboy and New York Giant does have some decent catch numbers, but the yardage and scores simply haven't been there.

Fantasy impact: Quarterback Josh McCown hasn't been looking Bennett's way so far in his short stint as the starter. That could change with the Ravens likely to blitz the Bears' suspect offensive line on Sunday. Still, the upside of Bennett is severely capped. Receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are two of the best in the league, especially in the red zone. Bennett is a low-end TE1 in 12-team leagues.
