Martellus Bennett placed on IR

Boston Globe writer Jim McBride is reporting the New England Patriots have placed TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) on the injured reserve list.

Fantasy Impact

Bennett's 2017 season is over. Dealing with a shoulder injury, he'll end a disappointing campaign with a 30-286-0 while sharing time in between Green Bay and New England. Dwayne Allen will resume his role as Rob Gronkowski's primary backup.

Martellus Bennett OUT for Week 12

Martellus Bennett is out for New England's Week 12 matchup with the Miami Dolphins due to shoulder and hamstring injuries, according to multiple reports.

Fantasy Impact

With Rob Gronkowski healthy and starting for the Patriots, Bennett was going to be playing second fiddle anyway. While returning to the Patriots has seemingly rejuvenated him, his fantasy value is limited due to his role. With Bennett out, Dwayne Allen will serve as Gronkowski's backup.

Martellus Bennett catches three passes in Week 11 win

Martellus Bennett hauled in all three of his targets for 15 yards in the Patriots' Week 11 win over the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Bennett is looking healthy on the field despite having shoulder and hamstring issues. But Bennett's fantasy production figures to be sporadic as long as star tight end Rob Gronkowski remains healthy. If there is an injury to Gronk then Bennett would be a must add in most fantasy leagues.

Martellus Bennett catches three passes in return to Patriots

Martellus Bennett pulled in three catches for 38 yards on three targets Sunday in the Patriots’ Week 10 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Bennett was a surprise active for the Patriots after they picked him up on waivers earlier in the week. The Packers released the veteran tight end due to shoulder issues but he looked healthy in the win against the Broncos. Bennett should have a role in the Patriots offense but with Rob Gronkowski, on the field, his targets will be limited leaving Bennett to be only worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.

Martellus Bennett claimed off waivers by Patriots

Martellus Bennett was claimed off waivers by the New England Patriots after being recently released by the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Bennett was largely a bust this season after high expectations when he decided to join the Packers and Aaron Rodges. Things didn't work out exactly as expected but rejoining the Patriots puts him squarely back in the top 12 tight end conversation. The Patriots should easily be able to make use of Bennett in two tight end sets alongside Rob Gronkowski. He should be widely available in leagues and is worth the speculative add considering the drop-off at the position outside the top 3.
