Since going down with what has become a nagging injury, Marty B hasn't accomplished much on the field. His struggles continued last week with just one catch and he should be regarded as a significant risk with some upside once again.

Martellus Bennett caught all five of his targets for 32 yards Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact
There was news that came out on Sunday that Bennett has been playing with a cracked bone and bone spurs in his ankle and will likely need surgery after the season. It has shown on the field as the veteran TE has become an afterthought in the passing game for the Patriots. He is still a threat in the red zone and could help fantasy owners if he can catch a TD pass in the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Impact
Bennett has been banged up most of the second half of the season but he keeps going. Expect him to play on Sunday and he will have red zone potential with three TDs over his last five outings.

The Steelers are 21st against fantasy tight ends this year. The Steelers D has been better in the 2nd half of the season, but Bennett catches passes from QB Tom Brady and he is a threat to score in any matchup.

The tight end situation is pretty good, as C.J. Fiedorowicz is the only one who has been ruled out already (although note that Vance McDonald has been placed on IR).   Read the full story on Athlon Sports

By Week 13 of the NFL season, the injury report has gotten pretty long, and that’s not good news for fantasy owners. They have to work with players that are clearly not at 100 percent in what is, in most leagues, the last week of the fantasy regular season. And in some cases, the players in question are pretty important ones. Read the full story on Athlon Sports

Even with three games on Thanksgiving to start Week 12, there are still plenty of players fantasy owners need to pay attention to on the injury report. While some of the big names should be fine to play, some owners are going to have to make some tough decisions when it comes to putting together a lineup. Read the full story on Athlon Sports
