Browns emerging wide receiver Travis Benjamin snagged six passes for 83 yards off 12 targets in an overtime win over the Ravens on Sunday. Benjamin leads the team in targets, yards and touchdowns through five weeks - racking up 32 targets over the past three weeks.

His next shot at adding to his impressive numbers is Week 6 against Denver.
