Ben Braunecker goes for nine yards in win

Ben Braunecker caught two of four targets for nine yards in the Bears’ 19-14 win over the Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Braunecker has been more involved in the offense since Trey Burton hit the IR, though he hasn't offered much fantasy value aside from his Week 11 touchdown. He's not worth a pickup.

Ben Braunecker scores first career TD

Ben Braunecker brought in his lone target for an 18-yard TD in the Bears’ 20-13 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Chalk it up to a one-off, as Braunecker entered the game sporting a 2/24 receiving line on the season. He scored his first receiving touchdown in his fourth year in the NFL, so don't expect this to be a regular occurrence. Chicago’s only fantasy-relevant receiving option is Allen Robinson at this point.

Ben Braunecker makes his first career catch

Ben Braunecker made his first career catch on Monday night against the Vikings. Braunecker had one reception on one target for eight yards.

Fantasy Impact

It was good to see Braunecker make his first career catch and it was actually in the red zone. However, Zach Miller is still the starting TE for Chicago and Braunecker appears to be third in the depth chart right now.

Ben Braunecker promoted to active roster

Ben Braunecker was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad after missing the majority of the preseason with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact

Braunecker is currently the third string tight end for Chicago behind Zach Miller and Logan Paulsen. Miller did sit out of practice today with a rib injury, but how serious his injury is remains to be seen. Braunecker is best left on the waiver wire for now unless Miller misses a significant amount of time.

Ben Braunecker (ankle) still sidelined

As you may know, the Bears are very thin at the TE position. Martellus Bennett is in New England and Zach Miller, Greg Scruggs and Ben Braunecker are all sidelined right now in training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Braunecker has an ankle injury and was out again on Monday. Rob Housler, Tony Moaeki and Gannon Sinclair are the top TE's currently. The Bears need health and then some to have any contunity on the position.
