During the lead-up to the Chicago Bears loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Bears receiver Earl Bennett was asked about his decreased production. Since Brandon Marshall joined the Bears in the off-season, Bennett hasn't been targeted as often.
"It's going to happen more and more as we go on," Bennett said. "I just have to stay patient and just take advantage of the opportunities."
He was targeted more on Sunday. Cutler hit Bennett for a 12-yard touchdown in the Bears' first offensive drive. As he tried to get to the end zone, Bennett showed he can fly.
It was Bennett's only catch of the game. He dropped the ball on what would have been a sure touchdown, and then left the game with a concussion. He's the second Bears receiver to sustain a concussion in two weeks. Devin Hester missed the game while healing from his own concussion.Fantasy football advice on Yahoo! Sports:
