Dray, who did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, finished the season with 17 catches (28 targets) for 242 yards and a touchdown.

Dray found himself with an expanded role this season, as starter Jordan Cameron missed six games, but he was unable to turn the extra snaps into steady fantasy production. He outperformed his counterpart, Gary Barnidge, but this was largely because Barnidge missed three straight games towards the end of the season with a ribs injury. Dray could see a similar opportunity in 2015 if the Browns lose Cameron to free agency, but considering that the 27-year-old failed to record more than three receptions in a single contest this year, he can likely be safely avoided in most fantasy formats.

Dray caught three passes on four targets for 45 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

After fellow tight end Gary Barnidge suffered a ribs injury on the Browns' opening drive, Dray was left as the only viable pass-catching option at the tight end position. He may end up a sleeper play in deep leagues in Week 14 if Barnidge and Jordan Cameron (concussion) remain out, but with the latter said to be nearing a return, Dray may be best left on the waiver wire. The 27-year-old hasn't seen more than four targets in a single game this season.

Dray hauled in both of his two targets for 46 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Dray received the starting nod at tight end in the absence of Jordan Cameron (concussion), and ended up finishing third on the team in receiving yards. His counterpart, Gary Barnidge, actually saw three more targets, but was only able to turn that into one reception for 11 yards. Even with Cameron's availability for the rest of the season uncertain, neither tight end has truly been able to stand out from a fantasy perspective.

Dray will start at tight end in place of Jordan Cameron (concussion) Sunday against the Texans, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Dray will get the starting nod for Cleveland, though this doesn't necessarily bode well for his potential fantasy impact. Over the past three weeks, Dray has been targeted just five times and has hauled in only three receptions. Gary Barnidge -- who caught two passes for 46 yards in Week 10 -- appears to be the frontrunner for the tight end targets.

Dray did not catch a pass on a single target in Thursday's victory over the Bengals.

Dray wasn't a factor in the passing game, but it's not like any Cleveland receiver stood out in an evening dominated by the rushing attack. Fellow tight end Gary Barnidge caught two passes on four targets, so it would seem Dray has fallen behind him on the depth chart. While starter Jordan Cameron remains sidelined with a concussion, it appears Barnidge will be the more productive option, but no tight ends currently on the roster represent high-percentage fantasy plays at the moment.

Dray hauled in his only target for a 26-yard gain in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

Dray received the starting nod at tight end, but was targeted three fewer times than his counterpart, Gary Barnidge. Although he gained more yardage, neither option was very effective from a fantasy standpoint, and we would expect this pattern to continue Thursday night against the Bengals. Although the status of starter Jordan Cameron (concussion) remains up in the air for that matchup, it's clear that his absence doesn't necessarily mean a significant uptick in production for either of the Browns' other tight end options.
