Martellus Bennett plays in first game with Packers

Martellus Bennett debuted with the Packers on Thursday night vs the Eagles. He caught his lone target of the night for 13 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Bennett was able to get his first crack at another new system on Thursday, as he tries to mesh with a handful of talented pieces the Packers have. He should be the used mostly as a chain mover and red zone target, and proved to be the first of the two tonight, hauling in his only target of the night for a 13 yard catch. Looked at as a low end TE1 by the fantasy community, Bennett should just hope to outperform the previous TEs in Green Bay.

Martellus Bennett making friends with Aaron Rodgers

While OTAs are ongoing Martellus Bennett is trying to create a rapport with Quarterback Aaron Rodgers

Fantasy Impact

While Martellus hasn't played a competitive snap for Green Bay, making friends with the Quarterback of your team is always a good idea. Bennett has also put alot of work into learning the play book to get in the good books of the best signal caller in the league. With Bennett having an impressive season with the Patriots and Tom Brady throwing him the ball, expect this early rapport to start paying dividends during the season.

Martellus Bennett signs with Green Bay

Former New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is signing with the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Bennett was never expected to re-sign with New England due to the money he would command in free agency. However, the Packers, who had a need at tight end with Jared Cook in line to depart, signed Bennett Friday. Coming off of a 2016 season in which he scored a career-high seven touchdowns, Bennett could have an even bigger statistical showing with the Packers in 2017 as their featured tight end.

Martellus Bennett not expected to re-sign with Patriots

On his personal Twitter account, New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett is suggesting that he will not re-sign with the Patriots. "I'm going to miss you Mass-Holes," Bennett said via Twitter. "T'was Fun. Thank you for the good times. To infinity and beyond..."

Fantasy Impact

In Martysaurus-Rex fashion, Bennett said his goodbyes to Patriots nation via Twitter. With a $9 million per year asking price, it was unlikely that New England would sign him at that number, and Bennett's message all but confirms he will depart in free agency. Expect the Giants, Raiders and Jaguars, who all have a need at tight end, to pursue Bennett once the market opens at 4 pm Thursday.

Martellus Bennett has interest from several teams

Sources say that Bennett has received interest from the Giants, Jaguars, Bills, and Patriots. Tennessee and Detroit have also shown interest.

Fantasy Impact

As the Pats just traded for Dwayne Allen it seems that Bennett might be out of their equation. The other teams listed above have a huge hole and Bennett would have tremendous fantasy value if in the right system. Depending on where Bennett ends up will determine his real fantasy value.
