Davone Bess | WR | Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns WR Davone Bess will start opposite WR Greg Little in the regular season opener Sunday, Sept. 8, against the Miami Dolphins. He claims it will just be another game when he faces the team that traded him away. 'Things happen,' Bess said. 'We all know how this business is. When I got traded, it was in the best interest of the Miami Dolphins. I'm a Cleveland Brown now. No grudges at all. I'm thankful to be here.'
Huddle Up: He could be hyped up and have a big game, but Bess has never really done much in the fantasy realm. He could see increased looks with Josh Gordon serving a suspension, but his value lies in PPR leagues. He's not really start-worthy.

Cleveland Browns WR Davone Bess said he had a fracture in the L2 vertebrae in his back last season, which kept him out of the final three games. There was some tension with him and the Miami Dolphins over it.
Huddle Up: Bess is presumably healthy, no longer in Miami, and will work the slot for the Browns.

Cleveland Browns WR Davone Bess could start while WR Josh Gordon serves his two-game suspension.
Huddle Up: Bess, who's had at least 51 receptions in each of his 5 NFL seasons, has the chance to make an early impression with his new team -- a team desperate for offensive playmakers -- and carve out a role for himself even after Gordon returns.

The Cleveland Browns acquired WR Davone Bess from the Miami Dolphins Friday, April 26. Cleveland sent their their fourth- and fifth-round picks to Miami for Bess and the Dolphins' fourth- and seventh-round picks. Shortly after the trade, Bess received a three-year contract extension.
Huddle Up: Bess will provide a nice slot target while Josh Gordon and presumably Greg Little work the outside. Bess had become superfluous in Miami; he'll be a welcome addition to the Browns' passing game in Cleveland, albeit one with limited fantasy value.

The Miami Dolphins are highly likely to trade WR Davone Bess to the Cleveland Browns for mid-round picks.
Huddle Up: The Browns are in need of pass-catchers, and Bess is steady and serviceable slot option, having averaged 64 catches and 689 yards over his 5 seasons in Miami.

The Miami Dolphins could look to trade WR Davone Bess during the 2013 NFL Draft if they want to upgrade at their slot receiver position. The team would save $2.7 million if they released Bess this offseason.
Huddle Up: Miami already has a bunch of dough tied up in Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline, so saving on a slot receiver makes sense. Bess is a talented pass-catcher who could be a solid PPR contributor if he winds up in a WCO with a penchant for throwing to the slot man.

Miami Dolphins WRs Davone Bess, Armon Binns, Rishard Matthews, Brian Tyms and Jeff Fuller are expected to compete for two or three roster spots. The team could also add a wide receiver during the 2013 NFL Draft to join the competition.
Huddle Up: Bess has been a decent, low-end PPR option with at least 61 catches in 3 of the past 4 seasons, but with the additions of Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson obviously have dropped Bess down the depth chart.

Miami Dolphins WR Davone Bess reportedly has completely recovered from the back injury that kept him out of the last three games of the season.
Huddle Up: Bess hauled in 61 passes in 13 games and been a steady PPR performer in his 5 pro seasons. Meanwhile, tough, the Dolphins are in need of a big-play, big-name receiver -- Greg Jennings? Mike Wallace? -- and look for the team to scratch that itch in the offseason.

Miami Dolphins WR Davone Bess (back) and LB Koa Misi (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 21, and have been ruled out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Considering Brian Hartline is also questionable, anyone gambling with Ryan Tannehill in what looks like a nice matchup might want to think twice. Of course if you are gambling with Tannehill you might have bigger problems.
