Miami Dophin's wide receiver Davone Bess has increased his receiving yardage in each of his first two seasons.  Last year he caught 76 passes for 758 yards and two TD's. 

He's a possession receiver, clearly, but can become one of the better possession receivers in the league.

With Chad Henne becoming more comfortable with the offense, Bess has become his favorite target outside of Brandon Marshall of course.

In terms of Fantasy numbers, I don't think he'll put up that many touchdowns, but I think he could definitely put up over 1,000 yards next season and become one of the leagues leaders in receptions.

He could be a guy to watch in Fantasy drafts.

With Marshall drawing most of the attention from defensive backs, Bess could be free to run around in the slot like Wes Welker has done in New England, but not to that extreme extent.

I think if he can step up and go for over or close to 1,000 yards next season, him and Marshall could set the tone for a Dolphins playoff run.

As of right now, I think that the Dolphins will make the playoffs as a wild card team.  One of the major reasons is the contributions of guys like Davone Bess.
