When the Packers broke off negotiations with Jared Cook earlier today, it looked like Green Bay would be without a dynamic presence at tight end. Not so fast. Bennett finished the season as the #10 fantasy tight end, but he was pretty nicked up for most the season, which possibly limited his production.
