Dolphins Beat: Jarvis Landry 'clearly' the go-to receiver

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry caught 84 passes to lead the team in receptions as a rookie in 2014. He is clearly quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s go-to receiver, so there are questions whether he might eclipse the team record of 90 catches in one season.

Except Landry doesn’t seem to care about any team record except the wins and losses.

“Honestly, the focus right now is on winning,” he said. “Things like [the catch record] come. But It’s about this team. It’s about overcoming I wouldn’t say a couple of bad years but it’s about overcoming what the Dolphins standards are and redefining them.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Landry was the #42 WR in standard formats and #30 in PPR, so as a high-volume slot receiver, he's going to have more value in PPR formats. The Dolphins lost four of their top six most-targeted players: Mike Wallace, Charles Clay, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson. They have been replaced by Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings, DeVante Parker and Jordan Cameron, but Landry's role should still expand. He only played 62% of the snaps on the season, and didn't start playing consistent starter's snaps until Week 9. Over the final nine weeks, Landry was the #15 WR in PPR formats (and #23 in standard). He is currently the 24th WR off the board in early PPR drafts.
