Browns notebook: Gipson says defensive motto is 'finish'

News: Dray, who did not catch a pass in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, finished the season with 17 catches (28 targets) for 242 yards and a touchdown.
Impact: Dray found himself with an expanded role this season, as starter Jordan Cameron missed six games, but he was unable to turn the extra snaps into steady fantasy production. He outperformed his counterpart, Gary Barnidge, but this was largely because Barnidge missed three straight games towards the end of the season with a ribs injury. Dray could see a similar opportunity in 2015 if the Browns lose Cameron to free agency, but considering that the 27-year-old failed to record more than three receptions in a single contest this year, he can likely be safely avoided in most fantasy formats.
Rotowire: Dec 1 / 10:41a ET
News: Dray caught three passes on four targets for 45 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.
Impact: After fellow tight end Gary Barnidge suffered a rib injury on the Browns' opening drive, Dray was left as the only viable pass-catching option at tight end. He may end up a sleeper play in deep leagues in Week 14 if Barnidge and Jordan Cameron (concussion) remain out, but with the latter said to be nearing a return, Dray may be best left on the waiver wire. The 27-year-old Dray hasn't seen more than four targets in a single game this season.
