Cleveland Browns wide receiver Davone Bess caught three passes for 24 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 24-18 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9. Bess was targeted four times by quarterback Jason Campbell in the game.
Fantasy impact: Two of Bess' catches went for just four yards each, with the bulk of his yardage coming on a 20-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter of the game.
Bess has already had plenty of opportunity to establish himself as a go-to receiver, given that he spent a few years with the Miami Dolphins before joining the Browns. The fact he got two touchdowns against the Ravens won't necessarily make him a top pickup on the waiver wire, as he is not consistent enough to draw much notable interest from fantasy owners, even in deep leagues.
That said, teammate Greg Little left the game in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury and it remains to be seen whether the Brown's upcoming bye week will be enough to get a Little back in the lineup when the Browns face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Perhaps Bess stands to benefit should Little be sidelined for multiple weeks.
