Martellus Bennett should be ready to score
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will likely lean on new tight end Martellus Bennett quite a bit this season, especially when it comes to the red zone.
ESPN reports that in recent history, Cutler has looked for the tight end near the end zone. In two seasons, Bears tight end Kellen Davis caught only 37 passes, but seven of them went for touchdowns. Backup Matt Spaeth added three touchdowns among 13 receptions.
In 2010, Bears tight end Greg Olsen scored five touchdowns among his 41 receptions. Davis had one that year, bringing the total to 16 touchdowns among 92 receptions for Bears tight ends over the past three seasons.
