Tight end Martellus Bennett wants to be a beast of burden.

Bennett has declared this season the ‘‘Year of the YAK,’’ misspelling the acronym for ‘‘yards after catch’’ on purpose.

‘‘I just like the animal — yak — better than the word YAC,’’ he said.

Bennett and quarterback Jay Cutler stayed late after the second day of camp Saturday to work on the latter.

‘‘Me and him have a plan this year in camp to constantly work on a different route each day,’’ Bennett said. ‘‘As a tight end, it’s really just about being in rhythm, just him knowing what’s going to happen on certain routes.’’

Fantasy Impact: 

Bennett could be a nice, late-round get. His ADP is the 13th round and we rank him 11th at the position, but it seems like he has a chance to improve on that. We don't always recommend drafting two TEs if you don't have to, but Bennett looks like a decent TE2 option.
