    Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton could challenge the record for receiving yards (916) by a tight end, which TE Martellus Bennett set in 2014, in the opinion of beat writer Brad Biggs.

    Huddle Up: Burton is one of those guys that pops in the midrange TE1 area. If you're in a draft, you might have to be aggressive to grab him.

  • Posted: 3/8/2018 12:56pm ET

    Free-agent TE Martellus Bennett (Patriots) likely will not be an option for the Miami Dolphins this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Bennett dealt with injuries last season but may still be able to find a starting job during free agency. He is a solid pass catcher when he is healthy and could be at least a No. 2 fantasy tight end in 2018.

  • Posted: 3/7/2018 1:13pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett is being released Wednesday, March 7, according to a source. Bennett would have been a salary cap hit of nearly $6.2 million.

    Huddle Up: There will be a market for Bennett. He can produce as a TE1 if he's in the right situation, but he turns 31 years old in three days and may be over the hill.

  • Posted: 2/23/2018 7:47am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett wants to continue playing, and he's due a $2 million roster bonus March 14. His cap hit would be $6.2 million.

    Huddle Up: Bennett is little more than a bye-week replacement or a matchup play in fantasy.

  • Posted: 2/9/2018 11:25am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett is scheduled to receive a $2 million roster bonus March 14. The team would save $6.2 million in salary cap space if they release Bennett.

    Huddle Up: Bennett's future with the team may depend on what Rob Gronkowski decides regarding retirement. Bennett is a solid tight end when he is healthy and could start for a team in 2018 if he becomes a free agent. He can be at least a No. 2 fantasy tight end and could be a starter depending on his role.

  • Posted: 11/27/2017 2:03pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 27, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Bennett's weird and whacky season has finally ceased. This won't have much of an impact on the fantasy landscape in New England. Rob Gronkwoski will continue to get his and is the No. 1 fantasy tight end as long as he's healthy.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 5:57am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) will not play in Week 12's game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Bennett was listed as doubtful on the injury report after being held out of the team's two most recent practice sessions during the week, so his deactivation comes as no surprise. When healthy, he should be considered a TE2 in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 1:37pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as doubtful for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Bennett has been dealing with injuries for the last several weeks and could receive at least one week off. Owners in all leagues should avoid Bennett even if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 1:22pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Bennett probably will be active for the game even though he is not participating in practice, but owners should monitor the situation. He has recorded six catches for 53 yards in two games since returning to the Patriots and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 12:28pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: Bennett caught three passes for 38 yards in his first game back with the Patriots last week and probably will see limited targets again this week. He should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/17/2017 2:22pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) was limited in practice on Friday, Nov. 17, and is considered questionable for Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Bennett was able to play last week in his return to the team despite his shoulder injury. Look for the team's No. 2 tight end to be in action. However, he is only worth a look in deeper fantasy formats as long as Rob Gronkowski is healthy.

  • Posted: 11/16/2017 4:52pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 16.

    Huddle Up: In his first game since re-joining the Patriots, Bennett managed to catch all three of his targets for 38 yards, but that's about the most you can expect from the 30-year-old with Gronk around. Thus, Bennett is simply a TE2 that is more of a dart toss than anything else.

  • Posted: 11/15/2017 5:06pm ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Bennett likely will continue to play despite his shoulder injury and could see a decent amount of targets against the Oakland Raiders. Owners in most leagues should consider Bennett a No. 2 fantasy tight end and can keep him on the bench this week.

  • Posted: 11/12/2017 9:14am ET

    New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) is expected to play against the Denver Broncos in Week 10, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Bennett joined the team earlier this week but is familiar with the offense since he played for the Patriots last season. It is not known how many targets he will receive during the game, so owners may want to see his role before considering him a starting option.
