2024 Fantasy Outlook
Occupying a starting linebacker slot, Bentley led the Patriots in tackles this past season (114), which marked his third straight 100-plus tackle effort for the team. Bentley - who also added 4.5 sacks in 16 games in 2023 - remains under contract with New England through the 2025 campaign and thus is slated to reprise his key role in the team's defense next season under the guidance of new coordinator DeMarcus Covington. Such a context that should continue to result in enough production from the 2018 fifth-rounder to continue to merit attention as an IDP option. Read Past Outlooks

LBNew England Patriots
June 30, 2023
Bentley was rewarded for a standout 2022 season with a two-year contract extension Tuesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Bentley recorded a career-high 125 tackles last season, the second consecutive 100-tackle campaign for the 2018 fifth-round pick. The 26-year-old can now earn a maximum of $18.75 million over the next three seasons, with $9 million of that amount guaranteed.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
During the 2022 campaign, Bentley racked up a team-high 125 tackles along with three sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery in 17 games. This coming season, the 2018 fifth-rounder is set to reprise his starting inside linebacker role for the Patriots, and in the process, the 6-2, 244-pounder should continue to yield enough production to merit attention in deeper IDP formats.
Bentley, who recorded a team-high 109 tackles in 16 games for the Patriots in 2021, returned to the team on a two-year, $9 million contract this offseason. He's slated to occupy a starting spot in the middle of New England's defense and in the process work as the unit's primary defensive signal-caller. It's a role that should continue to yield a degree of IDP production from the 26-year-old, who New England took in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
