Draft note
by John Paulsen
On the surface, Landry’s sixth-round ADP makes little sense. He finished the 2019 season as the No. 13 receiver (half-PPR) after a No. 20 finish the year before. The conventional wisdom that Odell Beckham would take over the Cleveland passing game in 2019 never materialized, as Landry led the team in targets (138), receptions (83), yards (1,174) and touchdowns (6). Landry had offseason hip surgery (and is reportedly “looking great”), and the run-heavy Kevin Stefanski took over as head coach for Freddie Kitchens. Beckham apparently played through a core injury and is “free and clear” after offseason surgery, and the Browns added target-heavy TE Austin Hooper via free agency. These factors have combined to sink Landry’s ADP into the sixth round, where he looks like a good value, assuming Stefanski was so run-heavy in Minnesota at Mike Zimmer’s request. Through six weeks (prior to Adam Thielen’s injury), Thielen was the No. 6 receiver while Stefon Diggs was No. 15. So Stefanski’s offense was able to support two fantasy receivers, though both players were up and down during that stretch and the Minnesota tight ends were a non-factor to that point in the season.

CLE WR Jarvis Landry - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Jarvis Landry quietly had the most efficient season of his career last year. Landry’s 83 receptions were a far cry from his career-high of 112, yet he still managed to set a career high in receiving yards (1,174) due to his seventh place finish among wide receivers in yards after the catch and 26.6% target share in the Cleveland offense. The result of Landry’s efficiency was a 12th place finish among wide receivers in PPR scoring. By now there should be an alarm going off in the heads of observant fantasy drafters who would note Landry is currently being drafted as a WR3. Landry’s draft stock appears to be suffering from the perception that he only catches short passes over the middle of the field. His underlying metrics from last season show that this is just not true. Furthermore, Landry has the most established rapport with quarterback Baker Mayfield of anyone in the Browns’ offense. Landry projects as a value at his current ADP.

Fantasy Downside
Landry’s target share has room for regression, and the Browns will be hoping for greater contributions out of Odell Beckham, Kareem Hunt and their tight ends in the passing game this season. Landry may be getting more efficient as he gets older, but a reduction in volume is always concerning for fantasy purposes. On that same note, Landry will have to adapt to new Head Coach Kevin Stefanski’s run-heavy scheme. While this scheme might result in greater overall offensive efficiency in Cleveland, it will likely cost the pass catchers some targets in the long run.

2020 Bottom Line
Landry is being drafted as a WR3, which would appear to be his floor based on his production with Mayfield under center. Landry presents great value at his current ADP as someone who will be priced as a flex play but could easily return WR2 numbers.
