Quick fantasy outlook: Davone Bess was traded from Miami in a deal where he was nothing more than a throw-in that allowed Miami to swap mid-round picks with Cleveland and move up in the 2013 NFL draft. While the Browns' offense should be more productive under new Head Coach Rob Chudzinski and new Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner (both very offense-friendly coaches), Bess' outlook might not be so bright. Chudzinski and Turner both have a tendency to utilize athletic tight ends more frequently than slot receivers. Another hurdle that Bess will need to overcome is his position battle with second-year man Travis Benjamin. While Bess is a proven commodity in the slot, he lacks the vertical speed that Benjamin has in spades. Bess' best years may be back in Miami. Benjamin has competition to win the top slot receiver spot, though, as the team picked up veteran catch-machine Davone Bess in a draft-day trade with Miami in which the teams also swapped mid-round picks. Despite the fact that Bess was acquired for basically nothing other than Miami's desire to move up in the middle rounds, Cleveland may utilize him frequently. A veteran receiver who can make tough catches in traffic and be available on third downs fits in perfectly on a team with a young quarterback and young receivers.
