Rodgers: "Have to get Martellus Bennett involved early"

Tuesday, October 3, 2017, 11:48am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Don’t be surprised if Aaron Rodgers looks the way of Martellus Bennett early in Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Sure, Bennett has been a focal point for the Green Bay Packers’ offense, but the gem of general manager Ted Thompson’s free-agent class hasn’t quite taken off as many expected.

Rodgers wants that to change.

“We’ve got to get Marty involved early,” Rodgers said after Bennett caught six passes in last Thursday’s win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact:

It was a rough three games to start the season for Bennett, who dropped two passes (it would have been double that had two drops not been wiped out by penalty) against the Falcons and one against the Bengals. His three drops rank tied for first among tight ends with Jimmy Graham and tied for third in the league among all players. Bennett was targeted seven times against the Bears catching six but for a total of just 39 yards. With injuries to Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery, Bennett could be a valuable target.

Scouting Report

Week 6 at Minnesota Vikings

Martellus Bennett had 3 receptions for 53 yards last week, which isn't bad output considering that is his season high for yards. But he's still looking for his first score as a member of the Packers. Minnesota could solve that. The Vikings have been stingy, allowing just 6 passing TDs this season, but three of those have gone to tight ends. Bennett could be a sneaky start this week.
