Description: The Browns have signed former Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett. SOURCE: Jake Jones, KFBB-TV Montana
Insight: Bennett had a promising rookie season in 2009 (717 yards, 2 TD) but has seen his yardage total drop each of the last four seasons. Going to Cleveland won't improve his already minimal fantasy value.

Insight: This comes after Bennett refused to take a paycut. Bennett won't be hard to replace after hauling in just 32 catches last season. Fantasy owners shouldn't be considering Bennett as a viable option, regardless of what team he ends up with.

Insight: He's been away from the team for almost a week while dealing with an undisclosed personal matter. Jay Cutler still has Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall to throw to so Bennett's absence shouldn't alter Chicago's game plan too much in Week 17.

Description: Bears wideout Earl Bennett, who suffered a concussion against the Seahawks in Week 13, has been ruled out for Week 15, according to the Bears website.
Insight: Bennett has recorded just 23 receptions for 250 and one TD this season. Owned in less than five percent of all leagues his absence won't cause much of a problem. Alshon Jeffery is the second best receiver on the Bears behind Brandon Marshall and the only other Chicago receiver with any fantasy value.

Description: Bears wideout Earl Bennett suffered a concussion Sunday against the Seahawks according to ESPN Chicago.
Insight: Bennett has recorded a mere 23 receptions this season and is currently owned in just 1.6 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues. Bennett's absence will only strengthen Brandon Marshall's already booming fantasy value.

Description: Bears receiver Earl Bennett has been taken out of the game to undergo a concussion test.
Insight: Bennett reeled in a 12-yard touchdown in the first quarter for his only catch of the game. Brandon Marshall has been getting most of the targets on passing plays anyway so this shouldn't have much of an impact on quarterback Jay Cutler.

Description: The Chicago Bears have announced WR Earl Bennett will be inactive for today's (Week 17) game vs. Green Bay.
Insight: This game obviously means a lot more to Green Bay than it does Chicago, especially now that the Falcons are dominating the Panthers. The best the Bears can do is 2nd seed.

Description: Bennett had one catch for 13 yards against Miami on Sunday night.

Description: Bears WR Earl Bennett has impressed OC Mike Martz so much that the team has been running a "significant amount" of plays designed just for him recently. SOURCE: CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Insight: "Now we have a lot of things in just for him... we have a significant amount of things just for him during the course of the game." Bennett has looked better the last three games, but it's hard to recommend him with the other weapons in the offense. He is a very low-end flex option at best.

9/28/2010 3:00:00 PM
Description: Bennett had three receptions for 21 yards in the Bears' 20-17 win over Green Bay on Monday night.
Insight: Bennett appears to have taken over as the Bears' No. 3 wide receiver over Devin Aromashodu, and he could be worth consideration in deep leagues. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/21/2010 4:01:00 PM
Description: Bennett appears to have passed Devin Aromashodu as the Bears' No. 3 wide receiver.
Insight: Bennett could be worth a flier in PPR leagues right now. (RapidDraft.com)
