Davone Bess ruled out of Sunday's game, fantasy value diminished

Marc Serota

Miami Dolphins WR Davone Bess has been ruled out of Week 17. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins wide out Davone Bess has officially been ruled out of Sunday's game. The Dolphins receiver did not participate in Wednesday, Thursday or Friday's practices.

Bess is still hurting, listed on the team's injury report with back soreness. He will be unavailable when the Dolphins take on the Patriots in Week 17.

Fantasy Analysis: As if the the Dolphins needed this weekend's task to be any more daunting, they will face Tom Brady and the Patriots, shorthanded on offense.

The team will likely have to lean on production from Brian Hartline. Bess has not been cleared since injuring his back versus the 49ers. He had little fantasy to begin with, but in case you were waiting on Bess to breakout this year, rest assured, it will not happen.
