Browns | Travis Benjamin likely staying

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 13:17:54 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin said he could get a deal done with the Browns before March. Furthermore, he spoke with new head coach Hue Jackson, who said he loves Benjamin's skill set and that 2016 will hopefully be a great season for the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: The writing seems to be on the wall for Benjamin to stay in Cleveland. They'll need him, too, as he was far and away their most productive wide receiver last season. He also gives them one of the league's best punt returners. The quarterback situation isn't ideal, though. Consider Benjamin a WR3.

Browns | Travis Benjamin deal done soon?

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 13:34:52 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin may receive a new deal in the near future, according to his agent.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin is certainly worth of a new contract following last season. He was by far Cleveland's No. 1 wide receiver and a big threat as a punt returner. He may not be the most reliable starter in the fantasy football realm, partly due to inconsistent quarterback play, but view him as a WR3 for 2016.

Browns | Travis Benjamin a priority for Browns?

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 12:13:37 -0800

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Travis Benjamin could be a top priority for the Browns this offseason after totaling 68 catches for 966 yards and five touchdowns. He was also fourth in the NFL with 11.6 yards per punt return.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin was by far Cleveland's best wide receiver in 2015, and the second best pass-catcher on the team behind Gary Barnidge. He provides the Browns with a serious deep threat and a lethal punt returner.

Browns | Travis Benjamin questionable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 14:17:54 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 1, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has upside at a cheap price for FantasyScore players, especially against the Steeler's leaky defense. Still, with Austin Davis ($4,500, 9.0%) under center, he is far from a sure thing, especially with the limited repetitions in practice through the week.

Browns | Travis Benjamin listed as limited

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 17:02:52 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Benjamin ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has a decent chance to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, so owners should keep an eye on his situation. He had success against the Steelers earlier this season and could be a cheaper option to consider on FantasyScore.

Browns | No practice for Travis Benjamin

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:39:37 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin (ankle) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) had another disappointing week last week, and now he's facing the real likelihood that Johnny Manziel (concussion) will be out in the season finale. Even in a great matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Benjamin is too shaky a daily commodity with Austin Davis throwing him passes.

Browns | Travis Benjamin's slump continues

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 17:29:09 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin had three catches for 26 yards in a 30-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15, and he has managed just 67 receiving yards combined over the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin has been up and down all year, and he has really struggled recently against tough opponents. He is an all-or-nothing option at FantasyScore.

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 07:00:58 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Travis Benjamin (shoulder) will play in Week 14's game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Benjamin ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is the most productive Browns receiver from a fantasy standpoint and his cap-friendly price should make him a popular selection as a flex player for FantasyScore lineups, given the favorable matchup against the San Francisco secondary.

Sat, 12 Dec 2015 17:12:07 -0800
