NFL Market Share Production

martellus-bennett

Metric Recommendation: Martellus Bennett’s profile is as unique as a his self proclaimed nickname. He has tremendous size and explosiveness/speed for his size. But is a shade off in elite length, hand size and flexibility to be someone I’d proclaim as an elite tight end. However, I like to side with production over a few physical or athletic blemishes. Which is what Bennett has been from 2012-2016.

Bennett should be paid above average tight end money, but not necessarily elite tight end money. But there is no doubt in my mind that he has a few more highly productive seasons left in the tank.
