These Player Spotlight articles that will take a look at the player’s stats, their future match ups, consistency and current rank in position. Hit the jump to check out Martellus Bennett.
I can’t for the life of me understand why the Giants let Bennett go after his 2012 season. The Kevin Boss experiment didn’t work out that great. And the Giants are terrible this year. Guess it all worked out for Bennett. The NFC North is a very odd division so far this year; the Bears, Packers and Lions all have elite offenses and pretty terrible defenses. It’s a great time to own fantasy players in this lopsided division. Chicago has scored 18+ points in their 7 games and 31+ in 4 of those. I expect this pattern to continue as the Bears still play Green Bay twice and have very favorable matchups with the Vikings, Browns, Rams and Eagles. The TE has had his ups and downs this season but he’s still a top talent.
Week 8 Rank: 6th
Week 8 Stats: 32 recs/ 352 yards/ 4 TDs
