Dolphins Beat: Jarvis Landry could double his touchdown total

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dolphins beat writer James Walker: I expect second-year receiver Jarvis Landry to do a lot of damage in the red zone. He had only five touchdowns in 2014, but I wouldn't be surprised if that number doubles this season. Landry runs precise routes, has the best hands on the team and the trust of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. With so many new receivers, I expect Tannehill to stick to what's most familiar (Landry) on “money” plays such as third down and in the red zone, especially early in the season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Landry was the #42 WR in standard formats and #30 in PPR, so unless his touchdown rate increases, 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 They have been replaced by Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings, DeVante Parker and Jordan Cameron, but Landry's role should expand as well. 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 22nd WR off the board in PPR drafts.
