Pryor reeled in eight of 14 targets for 144 yards in Sunday's loss to Miami. He added 21 yards and a touchdown on four carries and completed three of five passes for 35 yards.
Pryor had one of the most interesting box scores you'll see on Sunday, lining up all over the field on his way to 200 total yards. The highlight was his three-yard sweep for a touchdown after lining up at quarterback near the goal line. If the Browns choose to continue to deploy Pryor as a goal-line quarterback, his value should remain high even after Josh Gordon returns to, presumably, take some of his targets.
Pryor has been a staple in the Cleveland passing game through the season's first two weeks, whether it was Robert Griffin or Josh McCown (collarbone) under center for the Browns. Even with Cody Kessler in line to start at QB Sunday, Pryor should be a key cog in Cleveland's passing game, as leading pass catcher Corey Coleman is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks with a fractured hand. Coleman was the only other wide receiver to see double-digit targets, and had led the receiving group in yardage (173) and touchdowns (2). Andrew Hawkins is also expected to see an increased role in the passing game out of the slot, but the 27-year-old Pryor is likely the more explosive threat. Pryor, a former collegiate quarterback, also could be a candidate to be used in trick plays for Week 3's tilt against Miami.
Pryor seemed to be Josh McCown's (shoulder) favorite target Sunday but was underwhelming, catching just 30 percent of his targets. Through two games, the 27-year-old leads the
Pryor hauled in three receptions (seven targets) for 68 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.
The Browns had trouble getting anything going offensively throughout Sunday's game, but Pryor was able to show his playmaking ability by catching a 44-yard pass over Eagles' cornerback Nolan Carrol in the second quarter. Though it's still early, the 27-year-old appears to be Robert Griffin's (shoulder) go-to receiver, as he was targeted a team-high seven times. Pryor's production may be limited next week against the Ravens, who only allowed 95 passing yards versus the Bills.
Pryor was relatively quiet, but the
