Travis Benjamin hauled in seven of 11 targets for 113 yards and rushed once for -7 yards in the Browns' Week 10 loss to the Steelers.
Benjamin had a good day but it could have been even better. He dropped a sure touchdown in the fourth quarter and lost his shoe on a play that could have easily gone for a long touchdown. Benjamin’s 61-yard reception in the first quarter was Cleveland’s longest play from scrimmage this year. Benjamin hadn’t gone for 100 yards since Week 6 against Denver. He’s always been a favorite of Johnny Manziel, securing three of Manziel’s five touchdowns this season. Benjamin should be in the WR3 discussion when the Browns play Baltimore after the bye week.

Travis Benjamin snared three of six targets for 22 yards in the Browns' Week 9 loss to the Bengals.

Benjamin and Johnny Manziel connected on a pair of long touchdowns in Week 2 but this week the chemistry wasn’t there. The Bengals eliminated the deep threat by playing zone coverage in the second half. Benjamin hasn’t scored since Week 3 and has only caught 10 passes for 95 yards over his last three games. He’ll be a mid-range WR3 next week against the Steelers.
Nov 6 - 12:17 AM

Travis Benjamin caught 3-of-5 targets for 26 yards in the Browns' Week 8 loss to the Cardinals.

Benjamin has now been shut down in back-to-back tough matchups against the Rams and Cardinals. He ran a lot of routes at Patrick Peterson, which allowed Brian Hartline to score a pair of touchdowns. Benjamin should get back on track Thursday night against the Bengals.
Nov 1 - 5:59 PM

Travis Benjamin caught 4-of-8 targets for 47 yards in the Browns' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

It's Benjamin's first really quiet game of the year, and his fantasy numbers took a hit when he fumbled after making a catch across the middle. It was one of four Browns fumbles that the Rams recovered on Sunday. Benjamin is a strong WR3 play but gets a tough Week 8 draw against Arizona and Patrick Peterson.
Oct 25 - 5:23 PM

Contract-year WR Travis Benjamin is hoping to stay with the Browns next season.

"I love it here, my wife loves it here and we're just happy to be here," said Benjamin. A contract extension hasn't been discussed yet but Benjamin said, "Hopefully in a couple weeks something gets brought up." Benjamin is having a breakout year for the Browns. He ranks 14th in receiving yards per game (88.0) and is eighth in the league in yards per catch (17.0).
Oct 21 - 9:35 PM

Travis Benjamin caught 9-of-13 passes for 117 yards in the Browns' Week 6 loss to the Broncos.

Benjamin continues to get the job done as the Browns' No. 1 receiver. He continues to dominate targets outside the numbers, while Gary Barnidge and Duke Johnson do the damage in the middle and short areas of the passing game. Benjamin's big gain was a 47-yard pickup down the left sideline when he out-leaped FS Darian Stewart to haul in the jump ball. Benjamin will remain a viable WR3 next week when the Browns travel to take on the Rams. He's getting a ton of volume.
Oct 18 - 6:36 PM

Travis Benjamin secured 6-of-12 targets for 89 yards in the Browns' Week 5 upset of the Ravens.

Benjamin has now seen double-digit targets in three straight games. While his touchdown-scoring binge has predictably slowed, Benjamin has emerged as Cleveland's clear-cut go-to receiver in a Browns offense that is now moving the ball consistently on defenses. They'll get their toughest test to date against the Broncos in Week 6. Benjamin will be a viable fantasy WR3.
Oct 11 - 5:20 PM

Travis Benjamin secured 6-of-10 targets for 79 yards in the Browns' Week 4 loss to San Diego.

He's now seen 10 targets in back-to-back games, while Benjamin's playing time has improved by the week. Even in a suspect Browns passing attack, Benjamin is trending toward WR3 value in standard and PPR leagues, and he's already there in return-yardage settings. View Benjamin as a boom-or-bust fantasy option when the Browns face a leaky Ravens pass defense in Week 5.
Oct 4 - 7:50 PM

Travis Benjamin (ribs) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

Benjamin is going to be fine for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Despite his ridiculous early-season numbers, Benjamin remains little more than a WR5 dart throw.
Oct 1 - 5:16 PM

Browns WR Travis Benjamin was limited with injured ribs in practice on Wednesday.

It is unclear when he suffered the injury, but there is not yet any reason to worry about his status for Week 4. Benjamin has been one of the most surprising fantasy players through three weeks, hauling in 10 passes for 249 yards and four touchdowns.
Oct 1 - 8:43 AM

Travis Benjamin secured 4-of-10 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Browns' Week 3 loss to the Raiders.

He also lost a fumble on special teams and was severely underthrown by Josh McCown on a late-game bomb that might have otherwise gone for six. A situational deep threat, Benjamin has accounted for five all-purpose touchdowns through three games. We remain highly skeptical Benjamin can keep it up, but he's at least entered the WR4/5 conversation entering a Week 4 date at San Diego.
Sep 27 - 5:39 PM

Travis Benjamin has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 2.

Not only did Benjamin catch two bombs for touchdowns on offense, he returned six punts for 154 yards and a 78-yard touchdown in the Browns' Week 2 win over the Titans. A situational deep threat on offense, Benjamin's current pace on that side of the ball is unsustainable. But he'll remain a force on punt returns. Fantasy owners shouldn't be rushing to the waiver wire to add him in non-return yards leagues. Benjamin only ran nine pass routes in Week 2.
Sep 23 - 10:29 AM

Travis Benjamin caught 3-of-4 targets for 115 yards and two touchdowns in the Browns' Week 2 win over the Titans.

A situational deep threat in Cleveland's offense, Benjamin caught a 60-yard touchdown on the Browns' opening drive, similar to his 54-yarder from Week 1. Benjamin added a 78-yard punt return score late in the second quarter, giving Cleveland a 21-0 lead. Ridiculously, Benjamin scored his fourth TD of the season on a 50-yard bomb, beating Blidi Wreh-Wilson. Benjamin is a rotational player in a low-volume passing offense. Despite the fluke early-season scoring binge, Benjamin will not be a fantasy option in Week 3 against the Raiders.
Sep 20 - 4:52 PM

Travis Benjamin caught three passes for 89 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Jets.

Benjamin got most of his production on a 54-yard touchdown from Johnny Manziel in the second quarter. He played in three-wide sets with Dwayne Bowe inactive. Benjamin should continue to be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Sep 13 - 5:20 PM

Coach Mike Pettine expects Travis Benjamin to be the Browns' punt returner.

In other words, Benjamin should keep his roster spot. A game-breaking returner in 2013, Benjamin wasn't the same last season as he returned from a torn ACL. The 2012 fourth-rounder has never had a significant role on offense.
