  • Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Leads team in tackles

    Bentley recorded 114 tackles, including 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.

  • Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Notches eight stops in Week 16 win

    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.

  • Patriots' Ja'Whaun Bentley: Questionable for Sunday

    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 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.
