Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections
Bennett will remain a high-risk/reward play in Week 7. He has a favorable matchup against Pittsburgh, but with Gronkowski back at full strength his offensive snap count dropped in Week 6.
Rushing: 1 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 38 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Given Tom Brady's track record when he has two primary tight end options, we have to like Bennett's upside in 2016. It had to be a dream come true for Bennett when he was traded from the Bears to the Patriots. Granted, Bennett had a career year with Jay Cutler throwing him the football back in 2014, but you don't get any better than Tom Brady when it comes to utilizing your tight ends. Bennett has also done a complete 180 when it comes to attitude and work ethic since joining the Patriots. In fact, reports earlier this spring from ESPN Boston, claimed that Bennett was one of the more impressive players on the field. While you don't want to draft Bennett as your starting tight end, he could wind up providing TE1 production when all is said and done.

Rushing: 5 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 31 Receptions, 380 Yards, 4 TD.
