Davone Bess missed Dolphins practice Thursday due to personal reasons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Davone Bess missed Miami Dolphins practice Thursday due to personal reasons, according to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post. What the precise reason was is still not yet known.

Bess has yet to miss any playing time this season with the Dolphins. Through eight games, he has 38 receptions for 483 yards and no touchdowns. He has caught 58 percent of his 65 targets on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Be sure to double check the injury report again Friday, but usually when players take time off for personal reasons, it doesn't affect their status for the weekend. If you rely on Bess in your fantasy league, it's safe to keep him in your starting lineup for now.

Bess has a great matchup this week against a Tennessee Titans secondary that has surrendered a league-high 20 passing touchdowns on the year. He could be a solid WR2, assuming he plays.
