Fantasy Impact: Bennett has not developed in to the high-end player that many were expecting as the fourth-overall pick in 2014. His best point total to date was 36, which came in his rookie season. The past three seasons have seen totals of 26, 26, and 27, consistent though certainly underwhelming. While there is still some reason to believe that Bennett could break-out, he was a very highly touted prospect, and is still just 23 years-old. It is starting to seem less likely with each passing season. Bennett has struggled to produce early in his career, though his penalty minutes are useful in certain formats.

Sam Bennett got his 5th assist on Mikael Backlund's first period goal in the Flames 4-1 win over the Kings on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Sam Bennett has been disappointing Calgary fans since he was the 4th overall pick in the 2014 draft. Bennett has yet to score over 36 points in a full season. Currently Bennett has 4 goals and 5 assists through 26 games. The Flames appear to be trying to give Bennett the opportunity to develop by putting him on the second even strength and second power play lines. Although his production doesn't merit more than a 3rd or 4th line assignment. Bennett only has value in deep fantasy leagues.

Sam Bennet picks up both his 4th goal and assist in Calgary's 6-3 win over the Jets on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: Although Bennet isn't someone likely on your fantasy radar, he's worth watching as he continues to skate alongside Matthew Tkachuk and Mikael Backlund. Since joining the second line, Bennet has amassed 4 points, 9 shots and a healthy 13 hits in just four games.

Sam Bennett got his 3rd assist of the season on Derek Ryan's 2nd period goal in the Flames 4-2 win over the Oilers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Sam Bennett has been an epic disappointment so far in his career. The 2014 4th overall pick in the draft has a career high of 36 points. Still only 22 years old so there could be time for development but the clock is ticking faster these days. Bennett is getting every chance to succeed with 2nd even strength and power play line duties. Even with that Bennett has only 2 goals and 3 assists through 20 games. Bennett is not worth your fantasy consideration currently.
