With Gronk drawing plenty of coverage up the middle, Bennett could see even more action than he did during his Chicago tenure. Yes, he finished last season on injured reserve, but it was just fractured ribs so there is no question that he is recovered and ready to take advantage of being part of that Patriots' scheme.

Martellus Bennett caught 2-of-2 targets for 26 yards for the Patriots in Thursday's second preseason game. Making the most of his opportunities Bennett continues to look like an important piece for 2016's Patriot offense.

Fantasy Impact: Although it has been just two preseason games there is a clear connection with Garoppolo feeling comfortable targeting Bennett. With Gronkowski resting we have yet to see Gronk and Bennett together but seeing Bennett grow a connection with Garoppolo is encouraging. Bennett will continue to be a sleeper at tight end for those that wait until the later rounds of drafts.

Bennett will be the second tight end on the Patriots, but they could use him like they did Aaron Hernandez before the murdering. I think they'll probably need to use Bennett more than most second tight ends, and in that offense, he should be able to accumulate some touchdowns

No other team utilizes two TEs better.

The Patriots could use a lot of two TE sets, which means Bennett is a TE2 with upside.

There are not enough targets for him to be viable with Gronk healthy

Second fiddle to The Gronk, Bennett could find success in NE, but it certainly will be capped.
