He was as volatile as any player in the league last year, but with Crabtree hurt and Boldin being their only proven target in the passing game, I can't see how he disappears from their game plan this year.
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.

Big boost with Crabtree on the mend
Bennett gives Cutler three big bodied weapons to throw to

Pack isn't great against TE so Davis could go off as top-2 receiver for 49ers.
Bennett could get a nice intro to his new team, but Cincy isn't the best matchup out there.

With the loss of Michael Crabtree in San Fran, for Kaepernick to continue his run of success, he will need to utilize every weapon he has. That means that Davis’ numbers of 548 yards, 41 receptions and 5 TDs in 2012 will see a spike. SF has lined up Davis all over the place and besides Anquan Boldin, Davis will be one of the main sources of firepower for this offense. Upside … Yep.
Bennett wants a nickname - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQ-zGtSRUBA#t=24

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.

I could be wrong, I'm just not a fan

Kaepernick treated Vernon Davis like a 2nd String TE when he first became the starter. Vernon never had an outstanding fantasy day as a duo, he close to waiveable. But then the playoffs happened, and Colin finally figuered out Vern is a BEAST. With Delanie Walker gone, Michael Crabtree out for the season, <nobr><a href="#" class="FAtxtL" id="FALINK_1_0_0">Frank Gore</a></nobr> a step slower. Look for Vern to continue his postseason momentum into 2013.
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.
