Week 2 vs. ARI
Rushing: 1 / 13 / 0
Receiving: 2 / 13 / 0 on 3 targets
Bess, who returns punts and kick offs, caught two balls for 13 yards. He clearly was the quickest Miami receiver and at times looked as though he was going to break a kick off long.
Week 3 vs. NE
Receiving: 1 / 4 / 0 on 1 targets
Rookie wide receiver Davone Bess successfully hauled in his only target for four yards. He also returned three kickoffs for 47 yards and one punt for ten yards.
Week 5 vs. SD
Receiving: 3 / 25 / 0 on 4 targets
Bess played the role of third receiver for Miami, and made a couple of catches in the first half on just two targets. In the second half, however, he had a costly fumble on a kick return and wasn't thrown to on the final three possessions.
Week 6 vs. HOU
Receiving: 1 / 10 / 0 on 1 targets
Bess made a token appearance late in the game. He caught his only target for a first down.
Week 8 vs. BUF
Receiving: 2 / 13 / 0 on 2 targets
The rookie from Hawaii was targeted twice in the first quarter and caught both balls.
Week 9 vs. DEN
Receiving: 2 / 28 / 0 on 3 targets
Bess made one of the most terrific catches of the afternoon in the first half. On a low pass, Bess slid across the field on his back while reaching his hands up over his body. He secured possession, brought the ball into his chest, and made a very tough catch. He saw very limited action the rest of the way, but he showed enough on that play to deserve a mention.
Week 10 vs. SEA
Receiving: 2 / 25 / 0 on 3 targets
Bess was used in three WR sets, and made the most of his short time on the field - a couple of nice catches for first downs.
Week 11 vs. OAK
Receiving: 3 / 50 / 0 on 5 targets
The rookie from Hawaii saw a little more time. They like his speed and his role in this offense should continue to increase. He was second on the team with three grabs for 50 yards and returned two punts for 13 yards.
Week 12 vs. NE
Receiving: 5 / 87 / 0 on 9 targets
Bess was a pleasant surprise before and after the Camarillo injury. He showed good speed, agility, and catching ability. He was not afraid to go after the ball over the middle, either.
Week 13 vs. STL
Receiving: 6 / 84 / 0 on 10 targets
Bess looked impressive in his elevation to a starting role following the season ending knee injury to Greg Camarillo. Against the Rams, Bess was Chad Pennington's favorite receiver, and averaged 14.0 yards per reception coming out of the slot.
Week 14 vs. BUF
Receiving: 9 / 74 / 0 on 11 targets
Since replacing Camarillo, Bess has emerged as Miami's number one target and led all receivers with nine grabs for 74 yards. Bess is fast and quick and they design ways to get him the ball in space. In his last game against the Rams he caught six passes for 84 yards following his five catch, 87 yard effort against New England.
Week 15 vs. SF
Receiving: 3 / 25 / 0 on 3 targets
The rookie Bess made the most of his three targets by catching them all for 25 yards. He caught a very quick hitch on a one step drop. With his good speed he was able to make a defender miss on the way to a nice gain for a first down.
Week 16 vs. KC
Receiving: 6 / 57 / 0 on 8 targets
Rookie WR Davone Bess continues to fill in effectively for injured WR Greg Camarillo. Bess was a frequent target of QB Chad Pennington and exhibited great speed and hands throughout the game.
Week 17 vs. NYJ
Receiving: 6 / 39 / 0 on 8 targets
Bess saw a team high nine targets and managed to haul in six of them for a slender 39 yards. He worked underneath and helped Pennington and the Dolphins move the chains and sustain long drives.
Week 18 vs. BAL
Receiving: 2 / 54 / 0 on 5 targets
Bess showed good quickness on several plays, and was able to get open several times. He was involved in a variety of ways, being targeted on a pass that was intercepted, getting hurt while making a tackle after a different interception, returning to the game in the second half and turning a short pass into a long run where he showed good speed and change of direction quickness before being tackled at the four yard line. He did drop a pass that was well within his grasp.
