Effect of Bears O-line on TE Bennett

Being a tight end who is a good blocker can be a double-edged sword. Your ability to block will keep you on the field more often, but if your O-line is struggling, you may be stuck at the line chipping in as a blocker, instead of slipping out to catch passes. Martellus Bennett found himself in that situation regularly last season, which limited his statistical production. He hinted at fantasy upside but never caught more than five passes after Week 3 and only reached the 80-yard mark once.
