Bennett should be able to record 6-8 touchdowns as a top red zone threat for Aaron Rodgers. Perhaps the historical mid to low value at tight end in Green Bay's offense will keep Bennett from being a consistent fantasy option, but in best ball leagues where you can have 2-3 tight ends, his low points will be smoothed while his high points will enhance your ceiling at a value for his modest mid round price tag.

Summary

The Packers have been looking for a big bodied and effective 'move' tight end for a long time. Jared Cook seemed like the answer, though he was a bit inconsistent, and moved on in free agency. Despite being a journeyman, Bennett has been effective four out of the last five years and looked great stepping up in lieu of Rob Gronkowski when the Patriots tight end was hurt last season. The math on a new contract didn't work for New England, but their loss should be Green Bay's gain as Aaron Rodgers gains another vertical threat who can make tough catches. (August 16)
