Travis Benjamin WR CLE 13 Days

Benjamin caught one pass on four targets for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Benjamin was granted an opportunity to move up the depth chart with Miles Austin (kidney) out for the season, and took advantage by catching his first pass in three games. He remains a factor in the return game, but is still unlikely to see enough targets to be a high-percentage fantasy play moving forward.

Benjamin caught 3-of-5 targets for 46 yards in Thursday's 24-3 win over the Bengals.

Miles Austin caught 5-of-6 targets for 48 yards, and Taylor Gabriel caught 3-of-5 for 31 yards. Benjamin nearly had the biggest game of the bunch, as Brian Hoyer badly underthrew him on what easily could have been a long touchdown. While Benjamin, Austin and Gabriel won't necessarily disappear from the offense, Andrew Hawkins (knee/thigh) seems like a pretty good bet to return next week, and Josh Gordon will finally be back for Week 12.

Benjamin caught two passes on four targets for 52 yards in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

After being held without a catch in two straight weeks, Benjamin was able to become a factor in the passing game once again. Despite the season-high yardage total, the inconsistency makes Benjamin tough to rely on from a fantasy standpoint. Also worth noting is that Benjamin did not return a single kick or punt Sunday afternoon, suggesting that his role on the return game has diminished, if not completely faded away.

Benjamin did not record a reception for the second straight week in Sunday's victory over the Raiders.

Benjamin remains one of the top options for returns in Cleveland, but he isn't seeing enough volume in the offense to warrant much fantasy consideration. With the return of Josh Gordon (suspension) approaching, Benjamin is likely safe to drop in most standard formats.

Benjamin was held without a catch on four targets in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

Benjamin matched a season-high in targets, but still turned in his least productive effort of the season. The Browns offense as a whole stalled on Sunday afternoon, failing to record a single touchdown in the loss to the previously winless Jaguars. Benjamin received a lot of hype on the waiver wire after his two touchdown performance in Week 5, but has been unable to muster anything close to that performance since then.

Benjamin had one catch on one target for 31 yards in Sunday's victory over the Steelers.

Benjamin followed up his two-touchdown performance from Week 5 with a bit of a dud in Week 6, as quarterback Brian Hoyer looked his way just one time in the passing game. If it's any consolation, not a single Cleveland receiver was able to haul in more than three passes, despite the fact that the Browns lit up the scoreboard for 31 points. The overall inconsistency of most Cleveland passing options makes them tough to rely on in fantasy on a weekly basis.

Benjamin had four catches on four targets for 48 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Titans.

After catching just two passes for 49 yards in Weeks 2 and 3, Benjamin made a big impact Sunday with both of his touchdowns coming in the fourth quarter, including one with 1:09 left in the game that put the Browns up for good. Quarterback Brian Hoyer is really settling into his own, though he spreads the ball around well, which works against Benjamin from a consistency standpoint.

Benjamin caught one 43-yard pass on his only target in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Benjamin has seen just eight passes thrown his way over the Browns' first three games, so barring any unforeseen circumstances, he'll likely continue to be an afterthought in the Browns' passing game. He also fumbled once in Sunday's contest, but was able to recover it on his own. Benjamin could still warrant consideration in deeper leagues that count return yardage, however, as he continues to serve as the primary punt returner.

Benjamin caught one six-yard pass on four targets in Sunday's victory over the Saints.

After catching a touchdown pass in Week 1, Benjamin was a non-factor on offense Sunday afternoon. Even with tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) out, the majority of the extra targets seemingly went to Andrew Hawkins (12) and Miles Austin (10). Unless Benjamin finds a way to work his way up the depth chart, the 24-year-old will likely continue to have fleeting fantasy utility, especially upon the return of Josh Gordon (suspension).

Benjamin caught two passes on three targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Benjamin caught quarterback Brian Hoyer's only touchdown pass of the day, and although he didn't see many targets, he was able to make the most of his touches. The 24-year-old wideout remains behind Miles Austin and Andrew Hawkins on the depth chart, but if he continues to perform well when given an opportunity, there's a chance he could see his role in the offense gradually grow. In an offense that's missing start receiver Josh Gordon, Benjamin seemingly has as good of a chance as anyone to help pick up some of the targets Gordon leaves behind. He also carried the ball once for 10 yards on Sunday, adding another dimension to his offensive potential.
