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.
Aug 17 - 2:21 PM

The Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak considers Travis Benjamin the early odd man out in the Browns receiving corps.

Benjamin is a seldom-used deep threat who must show he can return kicks to make the team. Last season, Benjamin disappointed as a return man, averaging just 21 yards on kick returns and 2.4 yards per punt return while grading out as PFF's worst returner. Benjamin is pint-sized at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds.
Jul 29 - 9:20 AM

Travis Benjamin caught 3-of-5 targets for 46 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Both the catches and yards were Benjamin's most since Week 5. Benjamin has been an effective role player for the Browns this season, but especially with Josh Gordon coming back for Week 12, he remains miles from fantasy relevance.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 12:29:00 AM

Browns WR Travis Benjamin caught 2-of-4 targets for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 9 win over Tampa Bay.

A rotational receiver in Cleveland's offense a la Taylor Gabriel, Benjamin has big-play ability but plays limited snaps and sees limited targets. He will not be a fantasy option when the Browns take on the Bengals in Week 10.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 05:35:00 PM

Browns WR Travis Benjamin was held catch-less on four targets in Cleveland's Week 7 loss to Jacksonville.

Although Benjamin has made some critical early-season plays for the Browns on the field, the rotational wideout offers no value in re-draft leagues.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 05:04:00 PM

Browns WR Travis Benjamin caught all four of his targets for 48 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Titans.

The sophomore wideout has been a goat amongst Cleveland fans, but Benjamin stepped up in a major way in Sunday's comeback win. He caught a pair of fourth-quarter TDs, including a six-yarder to win the game. Benjamin is a rotational wideout in the Browns' offense, along with Taylor Gabriel behind Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin. He does return kickoffs with Marlon Moore, but has lost punt return duties to defensive back Jordan Poyer.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 06:24:00 PM

Browns WR Travis Benjamin will return both punts and kicks this season.

The Browns are evidently convinced Benjamin is over his torn ACL. Benjamin has proven to be one of the league's best punt returners when healthy, but has returned only six career kickoffs. Even with the Browns' receiver corps amongst the thinnest in the league, Benjamin won't have a meaningful role on offense.
Thu, Aug 7, 2014 04:16:00 PM

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin (knee) is participating in training camp.

He's recovered from last year's ACL tear. Benjamin is a 4.3s speedster who will return punts for Cleveland, and try to earn a sub-package role on offense.
