The Panthers allow the eighth fewest points to tight ends, but Bennett is being targeted so much that he is a TE1 regardless of matchup.
If Davis is healthy enough to play the full game, the veteran tight end has tremendous upside against a Chiefs defense that allows the 7th most points to fantasy tight ends. He is dealing with a back injury and will be limited in practice this week.

CAR hasn't been a get rich territory for fantasy tight ends, with no TD allowed and an average of just 57 YPG to the position. But Bennett is about the surest bet going among tight ends when it comes to TDs. Figure finds the end zone in addition to 43 receiving yards
