 I liked Bennett better in the Giants scheme so we'll have to wait and see what impact he'll have in Chicago. Could be a sleeper pick.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Rudy can score in any game and this one has shootout written all over it, so this could certainly be one of them.Bennett could get a nice intro to his new team, but Cincy isn't the best matchup out there.  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Laden with potential, but with two competent receivers now in town Rudolph may be even more inconsistent as long as Ponder is startingBennett gives Cutler three big bodied weapons to throw to  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Rudolph was a TE1 last year with low catch totals (53), but nine receiving touchdowns. He should be a TE1 against the Detroit Lions and their tight end defense that was ranked 23rd.The Bengals were just 18th against fantasy tight ends last year and third against receivers, so I look for Bennett to be a big part of their game plan.  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
You know what they say about Big Hands. Big Redzone target. That is exactly what we have Rudolph heading into 2013. With the addition of Greg Jennnings, and Purple Jesus getting his 25 Touches each week, Rudolph losses his security just a little bit.The Bears want to throw the ball. Jay Cutler is in a contract year. Brandon Marshall is a big-time WR who should be doubled every play. Martellus had a great bounce back season with the Giants, no doubt he can improve on that as a Bear. Alshon Jefferey is not a huge threat as the #2 WR.

Hate depending on touchdowns, and I'm not a Ponder believerI could be wrong, I'm just not a fan  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
At this point, you are going to get what you get. The tight ends from Olsen and below certainly won’t lead you to a fantasy championships by themselves, so look to pad their mediocre play with absolute studs to make up the difference. I consider Rudolph a bye-week replacement type option.Bennett wants a nickname - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQ-zGtSRUBA#t=24
