The Giants tight end situation took a turn for the worse in the Super Bowl when Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum both suffered torn ACLís during the teamís 21-17 victory over the Patriots. That led to the signing of free agent Martellus Bennett, a career underachiever in Dallas. While Bennett is a talented player with outstanding size and solid speed, he comes to the Giants after a four-year run in Dallas where he failed to emerge as a weapon for the Cowboys. After a solid rookie season in 2008 with 20 receptions for 283 yards and four touchdowns, Bennett averaged just 22 receptions for 188 yards over the next three seasons, failing to find the end zone. While his signing seemed to signal a solid opportunity, offseason reports that he had ballooned to close to 300 pounds put a damper on those expectations. Even though the Giants lack a proven third wide receiver behind Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz, it is hard to get excited by Bennettís prospects for 2012. Pluck him off the waiver wire if he has a solid start to the season.
FF Today's Take:The dominos of letting Martellus Bennett walk and Jack Doyle re-signing in Indianapolis have led to a deal between the Colts and Patriots for Allen to move to New England for a draft pick. Fantasy winners here are Doyle who moves into a starting role in Indianapolis and Allen who gets a boost as TE2 as insurance for Gronk owners.
