Browns trade for WR Jarvis Landry, QB Tyrod Taylor

Friday, March 9, 2018, 7:05pm

Chicago Tribune - [Full Article]

Two people familiar with the trade say the Cleveland Browns have agreed to acquire quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a third-round draft pick.

The Browns were expected to target a quarterback in free agency but instead have landed the dynamic Taylor, who will likely take over as Cleveland starter. The Browns are still expected to take a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft.

Earlier, the Browns worked out a trade with Miami for three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry. The Miami Dolphins have agreed to trade the Pro Bowl receiver to the Browns for two draft picks, a person familiar with the deal said Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

Likely out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, the Browns have elected to trade for a solid starter in Taylor and will likely pick a quarterback early in the 2018 NFL Draft. Taylor's presence will allow the Browns to be patient with their young quarterback, whoever it is. The Landry trade hurts his fantasy stock since his role was well defined in Miami, though he should still be a fantasy starter, especially in PPR formats. The Browns now have a receiving corps of Landry, Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman to go along with athletic tight end David Njoku. In Miami, Landry's departure opens up 161 targets, so depending on what the Dolphins do in free agency and the Draft, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills could see a big uptick in usage.
