The Packers cut Martellus Bennett with the failure to disclose a medical condition designation. We'll see what's next for the veteran TE.

Related players: Lance Kendricks

Fantasy Impact:

Bennett has already announced that he plans to retire at the end of the season, so we'll see if he's even interested in signing elsewhere. Lance Kendricks is worth a look in TE-premium leagues.

Packers TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) missed practice again Friday. The Packers play on Monday night, so Bennett could still get in a practice on Saturday. If not, Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers would assume his role in the offense.

Packers Beat: More TEs could mean less time for WR Randall Cobb

Yes, Mike McCarthy said he wants the ball in Randall Cobb’s hands more often. And during training camp, the Green Bay Packers' seventh-year receiver has looked as good as ever.

But this isn’t the offense of the last few years, where McCarthy sends out three receivers, a tight end and a running back for snap after snap. Since 2013, only four teams have run more plays with three receivers on the field than the Packers, according to ESPN Stats & Information. In that same stretch, no team has run fewer plays with multiple tight ends on the field than the Packers.

That all could change this season with the addition of veteran tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks, and it could impact Cobb more than any individual on the roster.

Fantasy Impact:

The story pointed to an example where the Pack went with a two-TE package along with Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams at WR on first and second down before eventually having Cobb replace Kendricks on third down. Granted it's only preseason, but Cobb seems to be the WR who will get less time if there are two TEs on the field.

One day after signing Martellus Bennett, Packers now bringing former Rams TE Lance Kendricks back to Wisconsin.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (groin, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 9. He’ll be a game-time decision. The Titans play late on Sunday, which complicates matters. Owners should get a Plan B ready. Last time Walker missed a game, Jace Amaro was the big winner with three catches for 59 yards on four targets. He hasn’t caught a pass since that game. Lance Kendricks also plays late and is a pretty good fallback option for Walker owners.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Per the San Diego Union-Tribune, Gates is “uncertain” for Week 3. The Chargers play late on Sunday, so owners should have a Plan B in place. Jacob Tamme, Jesse James, Trey Burton, Jack Doyle, Vance McDonald and Lance Kendricks all play at the same time as or later than Gates.

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 1. Yesterday, Gronkowski was described as “no sure thing” to play by Ian Rapoport, though the Boston Herald was told by two sources that he is expected to play “barring an unexpected setback.” He did not travel with the team on Friday, but could travel on Saturday after another day of treatment, so we should know more tomorrow. Martellus Bennett would have top 5 upside if Gronk misses any time. If Gronk does make the trip, owners who want to wait until Sunday night could pivot to Jessie James, Vance McDonald or even Lance Kendricks, who all play on Monday night.

Lance Kendricks has the potential to emerge as a significant target this season, an opportunity he’s embracing as the Rams TE1.

He’s been an important cog in the Rams’ offense in the past, particularly in the red zone. The Wisconsin product leads the team in touchdown receptions over the last three years. As is well known, a good receiving tight end can be a kind of security blanket for a young quarterback. The Rams will likely need Kendricks to fill that role this year.

Fantasy Impact:

The Rams cut Jared Cook, which leaves Kendricks atop the Rams' depth chart at tight end. He has posted a career 1.03 FP per target, so he should be streamable in 2016. In 18 career games with at least five targets, Kendricks has averaged 3.5 catches for 41 yards and 0.22 TD, which are fringe TE1 numbers.

Rams TE Lance Kendricks (concussion, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 14. Jared Cook is less appealing with Kendricks back in the fold.

Thursday, December 10, 2015, 6:31pm

Rams TE Lance Kendricks (concussion) took limited practice reps Wednesday. If Kendricks is out, Jared Cook has some appeal as a low-end TE2.
