Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett is officially listed as questionable for Week 7's game against the Washington Redskins. The Skins have allowed a TE to score a touchdown in four of their five games. Bennett is on pace for another career-year with the Bears. His 31 receptions rank fifth-most among tight ends. If he's unable to play, TEs Steve Maneri and Dante Rosario are next in line on the depth chart.
Bennett is definitely a TE1. The numbers don't pop off the page compared to guys like Jimmy Graham and Jordan Cameron; however, he's been reliable and steady to start the season. If you've got Bennett on your roster, he should be a starter this week and into the future considering how well the Bears are playing. In fact, Chicago ranks third in points scored per game. In any case, keep an eye on Bennett to ensure he's ready for work tomorrow.
