Davone Bess injury update: Fantasy value remains low in the slot

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

Davone Bess gets to take on his old team, but he's a little banged up. We break down the fantasy implications.

Browns receiver Davone Bess (knee) is listed as probable to face the Dolphins on Sunday. He practiced in full and will be ready to go against his former team.

The Browns brought him in to be their slot guy, which has been a role Bess embraced in Miami. He served as a safety valve for Ryan Tannehill last year and Browns QB Brandon Weeden has said some positive things about the Hawaii product.

Josh Gordon is going to be suspended for this game, so the team will have to look elsewhere for production.  Greg Little is more of a deep threat and Jordan Cameron will also serve as a primary target for Weeden.

Fantasy impact: There are worse options than Bess in PPR leagues this week. The Dolphins have a decent pass rush, so the short option routes that Bess will be running could prove to be useful for Weeden. He could catch five balls with 50 yards or so, so plan accordingly in desperate situations.
