Several Browns help make Sunday miserable


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Everyone was a minor contributor to the meager offensive display by the Browns on Sunday against the visiting Bengals. Among them were running backs Terrance West (5-23) and Isaiah Crowell (7-17), who added two catches for 10 yards.

No receiver aside from Josh Gordon caught more than two passes. Those who did snag at least one were Andrew Hawkins (2-7), Travis Benjamin (1-9), tight end Jordan Cameron (1-4) and Taylor Gabriel (1-2).


Browns receivers achieve little in Week 14 defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Another poor game by Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer resulted in little production from his receivers on Sunday.

That group was led by tight end Jordan Cameron, who caught four passes for 41 yards, but had a mere one reception in the second half. Andrew Hawkins added four catches for 38 yards while Travis Benjamin (1-27), Taylor Gabriel (2-16) and tight end Jim Dray (1-3) also chipped in. 


Contingent of Browns pitch in offensively in Week 11


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Browns were a mess Sunday against Houston, but several players did make small contributuons to their offensive effort.

Among them was tight end Jim Dray, who filled in admirably for usual starter Jordan Cameron with two catches for 46 yards. Not so proficient was wideout Miles Austin, who dropped two critical passes, one of which he bobbled into an interception down the stretch. Miles finished with three catches for 31 yards.

Running back Terrance West added 12 yards on five carries while wideout Travis Benjamin and tight end Gary Barnidge pitched in with one catch each.


Browns backup pass catchers do little Thursday night


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) The Browns backup pass catchers didn't do all that much Thursday night against the Bengals.

With Andrew Hawkins ruled out, the team was a bit thin at receiver. Cleveland adapted by running the ball 52 times. Despite the lackluster passing performance, a few players managed to make the most of their targets. Tight end Gary Barnidge gained 46 yards on just two receptions. Travis Benjamin also managed 46, but did so on three receptions. The two tied for second in receiving yards on the night. 

Taylor Gabriel also made three catches, gaining 31 yards. Tight end Jim Dray received a target, but could not come up with a reception. 

The group will take on the Texans Week 11. 


Several Browns receivers make plays in Week 9 win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) A handful of Browns receivers pitched in to a victory Sunday over Tampa Bay. The most prolific was Miles Austin, who caught three passes for 54 yards, including a huge first down snag for 13 yards over the middle that helped Cleveland ward off an upset.

Also chipping in were Travis Benjamin with two receptions for 52 yards, Andrew Hawkins (3-34), tight end Jim Dray (1-26) and tight end Gary Barnidge (2-16).


Bevy of Browns receivers contribute to Week 6 triumph


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Several Browns receivers chipped in with catches to aid in their lopsided victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Among them was Week 5 hero Travis Benjamin, who followed that two-touchdown effort by catching one pass for 31 yards and adding a three-yard run. Tight end Jim Dray did the same through the air while wideout Miles Austin added two receptions for 29 yards. Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel pitched in with a catch for 24 yards.


Browns QB Brian Hoyer praises WR Travis Benjamin


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer expressed complete faith after the Sunday win at Tennessee in wide receiver Travis Benjamin, to whom he threw two touchdown passes in the last seven minutes to complete the biggest comeback in franchise history.

Benjamin has struggled as a punter returner and muffed one that would have stood as a fumble if not for a Titans penalty. But he made up for it with the scores, prompting Hoyer to talk about him after the win.

"My relationship with Trav goes back to when we were both rehabbing our ACLs, and I love the guy to death," Hoyer told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "He's quiet, but he was one of the guys that texted me over the bye wek and said 'We're better than this. I'm sitting here watching these games and we can win in this league.' To see a guy that doesn't talk all the time but sends out a text message like that shows how much it means to him."

The two-touchdown game was the first of Benjamin's career.


Travis Benjamin probably a one-hit wonder


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) After playing just a peripheral part in the passing game through the Browns' first three games, wide receiver Travis Benjamin had a starring role Week 5 at Tennessee, catching two touchdown passes, including the go-ahead score with about a minute left to go.

That said, he only equaled a season-high with four targets, contributing a modest 48 yards on four catches. Three Browns had more targets than he did, and that's not even including Miles Austin.

Most likely, it was just a case of Benjamin being in the right place at the right time. He plays a significant role on special teams, and quarterback Brian Hoyer has plenty of other players to target in the passing game. Despite the big performance, Benjamin shouldn't get a lot of attention on the waiver wire this week.


Browns wideout Travis Benjamin plays hero in Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Browns speedy wideout Travis Benjamin has struggled as a punt returner, but he certainly made up for it as a pass-catcher Sunday at Carolina.

Benjamin, whose muffed punt was negated by a Panthers penalty, made amends by getting wide open in the middle of the end zone for a 17-yard score with seven minutes remaining in the game, then really made amends by tallying the game-winner with one minute left. He dragged his back foot inbounds to complete the 6-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone.

He finished with four catches for 48 yards and the first two-score game of his career. Benjamin will seek to take his momentum and run with it in Week 6 against the visiting Steelers.


Mike Pettine says he'll keep Travis Benjamin on punt returns


by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer
(10/1/2014) Browns coach Mike Pettine told the Akron Beacon Journal that he's sticking with Travis Benjamin as the team's punt returner. Benjamin has returned three punts for a total of 2 yards while making five fair catches.

Two Browns make minor contributions in Sunday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Speedy Travis Benjamin caught a 43-yard pass from Brian Hoyer for his only contribution to a Browns defeat against Baltimore on Sunday.

Also finding his way onto the stat sheet was running back Ray Agnew, who was held without a year on one carry.


Two questionable for Browns in Week 3


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Tight end Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is not the only Browns player listed as questionable for the Sunday game against Baltimore. Second-year linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder) has received the same designation.

All the other Browns on their Friday injury report aside from shelved running back Ben Tate (knee) are probable. They are wide receiver Travis Benjamin (knee), defensive ends Desmond Bryant (wrist) and John Hughes (hamstring), punter Spencer Lanning (shoulder), offensive lineman Paul McQuistan (ankle) and cornerback Buster Skrine (thumb).


Three Browns receivers make minor contributions Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Three receivers pitched in to the offensive effort Sunday for the Browns in their win over New Orleans. The only one of the trio with multiple catches was Taylor Gabriel, who snagged three for 13 yards.

Travis Benjamin added one catch for six yards while tight end Jim Dray caught one for five yards.


Travis Benjamin snags game-tying TD in defeat to Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Browns swift wide receiver Travis Benjamin caught just two passes Sunday against the Steelers, but one of them was the most important of the game for his team.

Benjamin got free in the left corner of the end zone four minutes into the fourth quarter and snagged a touchdown pass off a bootleg from quarterback Brian Hoyer. He finished with those two receptions for 20 yards.

He will try to score again next Sunday against the visiting Saints.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin will not return to Monday's preseason game due to a rib injury, the team announced. Benjamin was evaluated for a concussion, but a different injury will prevent him from returning to action after it was determined he didn't suffer a head injury.

Travis Benjamin stands out, eyes bigger role


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Travis Benjamin was easily the Browns' best receiver in Wednesday's practice, catching a deep throw from Johnny Manziel and making several other grabs, reports ESPN.com. Benjamin's role in the offense "seems to be growing" -- especially when Josh Gordon is out, the report said.

Coming back from an ACL surgery, Benjamin is looking to do more than return kicks. Coach Mike Pettine praised Benjamin's work on Wednesday.


Browns issue inactives for exhibition opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Chudzinski added wide receiver Davone Bess will return punts in place of Benjamin. He also said cornerback Joe Haden could be an option as well.


Travis Benjamin leaves game with knee injury


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2013) Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin left the team's Week 8 game at Kansas City with a knee injury. Benjamin was hurt on a punt return in the third quarter. He did not return to the game, which proved to be costly, as Davone Bess fumbled the first punt return following Benjamin's exit. 

Benjamin did not have a catch when he left the game, but had 60 return yards on two kickoffs and 11 yards on two punt returns. 


Travis Benjamin blanked after big run


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) How do you lead a team in rushing with one carry? You run for 45 yards and watch your teammates get shut down on the ground.

Such was the case for Browns fleet wide receiver Travis Benjamin, who bolted for that yardage on an end around late in the first quarter Sunday against Detroit to set up the team's first touchdown.

That proved to be his only yards of the game. He was targeted twice, but caught no passes in the loss to he Lions.


Travis Benjamin has huge day in return game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2013) Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin was a nonfactor in the passing game in Week 5 against the Bills, but he made his impact felt elsewhere in a 37-24 win Thursday.

Benjamin established a new team record with 179 yards on seven punt returns, including a 79 yard touchdown in the second quarter, the second of his career and first of the season.

Benjamin is averaging 15.1 yards per return on punts through the first five games of the season, while bringing in just five receptions for 105 yards.  


Travis Benjamin goes long on lone reception


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin touched the ball just once on offense in Week 4, in a 17-6 win over the Bengals Sunday.

Benjamin took a screen pass 39 yards in the game, the only pass thrown his way. He added one punt return for 7 yards as well.

Benjamin has been a limited contributor on offense, with five receptions for 105 yards through the first four games. The Browns take on the Bills in Week 5. 


Travis Benjamin is no Fantasy option in Week 3


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2013) Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin is a burner, but not a productive one. He gained more opportunities to play in the first two games with Josh Gordon serving a suspension and didn't take advantage of it. He managed just four catches for 66 yards and no scores.

The return of Gordon has already resulted in the demotion of Greg Little, but it could also mean less playing time for Benjamin. Though the Vikings have struggled defensively against the pass, giving up a whopping 753 yards through the air, it must be remembered that they have played explosive quarterbacks and receivers wearing Detroit and Chicago uniforms. Neither Benjamin nor new Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer fall into that category.

Benjamin should remain in reserve on all Fantasy teams this week.
