Summary

The Bears might have one of the NFL's most underrated tight ends in Martellus Bennett. The former Cowboy and Giant put up the best season of his career in 2014, hauling in 90 catches for 916 yards and six touchdowns. Bennett became a favorite target of Jay Cutler in the process. With the Bears moving to a run-first offense, Bennett's production definitely will come back to earth this season. He'll still be one of the top tight ends in the league, though, simply because of his relationship with Cutler. The quarterback has a tendency to throw the ball to receivers he trusts, and we know he trusts Bennett. What will help Bennett on the field this season are the acquisitions of Kevin White and Eddie Royal, both of whom offer things that no Bears receiver could in 2014. With White stretching the field and Royal criss-crossing the middle of the field, Bennett should find himself in winnable matchups in passing situations. Something to watch as the offseason progresses is Bennett's relationship with the Bears. Bennett has asked for a new contract at season's end, and the new management regime at Halas Hall might not want to give it to him. New GM Ryan Pace reportedly entertained trade offers for Bennett, so this definitely bears watching. (May 19)

Bears | Martellus Bennett confident (Thu Jul 30, 10:54 PM) - Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett said he isn't worried about his production declining because of the time he missed while protesting his contract. 'Some terminology and still learning some things like that, but overall I don't think anyone has the offense down,' Bennett said Thursday, July 30. 'I may be a leg behind, but I'm a pretty quick learner.'

Our View: Bennett is nothing but confident. He's going to be a TE1 for fantasy owners, especially in an Adam Gase offense.
