Martellus Bennett injury update: Should be ready for fantasy owners Sunday

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The Bears tight end is expected to play when the team takes on the Steelers in Week 3. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is expected to start in the team's Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. So far this season, Bennett has 10 receptions for 125 yards and three touchdowns through two games.

Fantasy impact: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler hasn't really have the luxury of a go to tight end since Greg Olsen signed with the Carolina Panthers. Bennett is big, strong, tall and athletic, and those traits lend themselves to a solid red zone target. There's no doubt that receiver Brandon Marshall is the number one guy in Chicago, but until Alshon Jeffery solidifies himself as the Bears' second in command, Bennett will probably see just has many throws come his way in the end zone. Now that Bennett has practiced in full two days in a row, fantasy owners should feel completely comfortable starting him as they normally would against the Steelers in Week 3.
