With Landry out, Peoples-Jones, Schwartz and Higgins are next up on the depth chart and could be the team's top-three WRs. Landry suffered a knee injury on the second offensive play of the game in Week 2. This season, Landry has caught six passes for 80 yards and two rushes for 13 yards and a touchdown. Landry will have to miss at least three games.
CLE WR Anthony Schwartz - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 vs. Texans
Schwartz had a surprising performance against the Chiefs last week, catching 3-of-5 targets for 69 yards while adding 17 yards on the ground. What's most intriguing is that Schwartz led the team with 126 air yards. This is a player who runs deep routes and can make an impact against a Texans defense that allowed splash plays to D.J. Chark and Marvin Jones Jr. last week.
Schwartz has a chance to maintain similar volume this week with Odell Beckham Jr. out for another week. He put up an 18.52% target share, which was tied for the team lead with Jarvis Landry and David Njoku. Schwartz has some appeal in deeper leagues due to his usage as a deep-threat. You can also fire him up in DFS tournaments if you decide to get some Browns exposure in this smash spot.
