New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) has been listed as probable for Week 6 against San Francisco. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett has been listed as probable for Sunday's game with the San Francisco 49ers. Bennett practiced on Friday and should play this weekend after hyper-extending his knee against the Cleveland Browns.

Bennett played through the injury and finished with 30 yards on three catches in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: Bennett being listed as probable is good news for fantasy owners counting on him this weekend. However, he is not a great start against San Francisco.

The Giants tend to spread the ball around and Bennett could benefit if Hakeem Nicks does not play against the 49ers. Fantasy owners should not expect Bennett to be open a lot because San Francisco plays such good defense. Bennett isn't a terrible start but more attractive matchups can be found this week.
