Though Benjamin is still listed as the Browns kick returner, Marlon Moore is starting to see returns as well.

Week 8: vs Oakland Raiders

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Brian Hoyer had an awful game against the soft Jaguars' D last week - 16/41 for 215 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -18 yards. Though Andrew Hawkins did rebound from his awful 0-fer game of two weeks ago (nine targets for 5/112/0 receiving), the lack of passing scores depressed his upside (and everyone else on the Browns' team). Jordan Cameron had six targets during the game but converted just 1/5/0. The Cleveland offense crashed and burned in Jacksonville, friends. With Johnny Manziel waiting in the wings, if Hoyer struggles again against the bottom-of-the-barrel Raiders (after giving the bottom-of-the-barrel Jaguars their first win of the season) it may be time for the anticipated debut of Manziel. The Browns' offense is in a funk entering Week 8, friends. Speaking of the bottom-of-the-barrel, the Raiders' already-shaky pass D (ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 229.5 net yards allowed per game, but with 11 passing scores given up vs. just three interceptions (tied-24th in the NFL) and a mere six sacks (31st) generated) just lost their starting S Usama Young to ACL and MCL tears in a knee, leaving backup Brandion Ross to get a first start in this game. Uh oh, Raiders' fans. Carson Palmer threw 22/31 for 242 net yards, two TDs and one pick at the Black Hole last week (one sack taken for -11 yards); two weeks back Philip Rivers threw 22/34 for 307 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions, with one sack taken for -6 yards. Hoyer has an opportunity to bounce back at home against the ailing Raiders - we'll see if he can capitalize on the situation.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs TEN (4 / 4 / 48 / 2 rec)

Travis Benjamin was 0-26 at scoring touchdowns in the redzone during his time at the University of Miami. Given 26 attempts, Benjamin scored zero touchdowns. Benjamin gave historical trends the middle finger on Sunday and scored not just one, but two touchdowns in the redzone on Sunday. Benjamin had the half of his life in the second half, showing beautiful extension, hand placement, and high pointing ability on both of his touchdown grabs. All this being said, Benjamin is still a fourth wide receiver in a run-first offense. He does not have much fantasy value.

2014 Week 6 vs PIT (1 / 1 / 31 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)

After posting a huge game in Week 5, Benjamin only managed one target and one carry against the Steelers. Benjamin has shown that he is more talented than Taylor Gabriel is, but he has yet to supplant Gabriel as the WR3 in the Browns offense.
