Thursday Night Football injury report: Bears TE Martellus Bennett ready, CB Charles Tillman inactive

The biggest injury news tied to tonight's Giants-Bears game has already been published: Giants running back David Wilson @4stillRunning is looking at a multi-week absence because of his neck injury. But elsewhere on the injury report for the Giants, tight end Brandon Myers @Bmyers83 is active despite an ankle injury that had him listed as questionable.
For the Bears, tight end Martellus Bennett is active despite a knee injury. However, cornerback Charles Tillman @peanuttillman is inactive due to his own nagging new injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

Brandon Jacobs @gatorboyrb and Da'Rel Scott @DaRelScott_RB will split the carries for the Giants. If you absolutely must start one, I would go with Scott, who has a lot more juice in his legs than Jacobs, and he can be a factor in the passing game. But both players are very, very low-end flex options. And Myers should be nowhere near your lineup.
Bennett is a decent TE1 just because the Giants are so bad on defense. This season, the Giants have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to tight ends. Tillman's absence will make things a tad easier for Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, etc. But in a short week, on the road, versus the Bears, I can't predict very good outputs from any Giants player tonight.
