Leads team in tackles

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-11

Bentley recorded 114 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 16 games with the Patriots during the 2023 season.

Occupying a starting linebacker slot, Bentley led the Patriots in tackles this past season, while marking his third straight 100-plus tackle effort for the team. Bentley remains under contract with New England through the 2025 campaign, and is thus slated to reprise his key role in the defense next season, a context that should continue to result in enough production from the 2018 fifth-rounder to merit fantasy attention in IDP formats.

Active game in defeat

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-01

Bentley recorded seven tackles (five solo) in the Patriots' 27-21 loss to the Bills on Sunday.

With this performance, the sixth-year pro exceeded 100 tackles for the third consecutive season. Bentley has 104 tackles, including 4.0 sacks, three passes defensed and a forced fumble in 2023.

Notches eight stops in Week 16 win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-26

Bentley tallied eight tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 26-23 victory versus the Broncos.

Bentley tied for the team lead in stops in the contest, bouncing back from the modest three-tackle output he posted against Kansas City in his previous game. The veteran linebacker entered the weekend as questionable due to a knee injury, but he was able to log all but one of the Patriots' 69 defensive snaps. Bentley has posted a career-high 4.0 sacks on the season, and he needs three more tackles to hit the triple-digit mark for the third straight campaign.

Good to go for Week 16

Bentley (knee) is active for Sunday's contest against the Broncos.

Bentley has played through a knee issue over the past couple of weeks and will do so once again Sunday. He's accumulated 89 tackles (42 solo), including 4.0 sacks, and a forced fumble over 13 games this season.

Questionable for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-22

Bentley (knee) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday night's game against the Broncos.

Bentley has been dealing with this knee issue for a couple weeks, but he was able to play through the injury in Week 15. After a week of limited practice sessions, the 27-year-old has a chance to suit up this Sunday as well. If Bentley were to miss New England's Week 16 affair, Mack Wilson would likely see increased snaps in the team's linebacker corps.

Will play Sunday

Bentley (knee) is active for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs.

Bentley was a late addition to the Patriots' injury report Friday with a knee issue, but he'll be good to go for Sunday's game. He's registered 86 tackles (40 solo), including 4.0 sacks, and a forced fumble over 12 games this season.

Questionable after limited practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-15

Bentley (knee) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Bentley popped up on the Patriots' injury report Friday after a limited practice session. His scaled back practice to end the week could be to give the 2018 fifth-round pick some rest ahead of Sunday's contest. In Week 14 against the Steelers, Bentley played all 66 defensive snaps and finished with seven tackles (two solo).

Eight stops in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-04

Bentley recorded eight tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Chargers.

Bentley was an active man in Week 13, finishing tied for the team lead with eight stops. The linebacker has compiled 24 tackles, including three sacks, while also forcing a fumble over the last three games he's played in.

Registers sack in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-28

Bentley recorded two solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Giants.

Bentley was making his return to the field after missing the team's Week 10 loss to the Colts with a hamstring injury, picking up where he left off, registering his third sack over his last two active contests. The linebacker has now compiled 70 total tackles, including a career-high four sacks, while deflecting three passes and forcing a fumble over 10 games in 2023.
