Landry secured two of five targets for 22 yards during Sunday's 28-16 win over the Falcons. Landry's five targets not only marked a season low, but it was his smallest total since the 2016 campaign when he was targeted four times on Dec. 16. The 25-year-old's production has drastically dipped over the past three weeks, due to Baker Mayfield targeting him less and less. Landry has totaled just 12 targets the past two games after seeing 27 the previous two. Fantasy owners are hoping Cleveland's coaches figure out a way to get Landry more involved when the Browns return from their bye Week 12. However, if that fails to come to fruition, Landry will be hard to trust for consistent production in most fantasy formats.
Landry hauled in six of seven targets for 50 yards during Sunday's 37-21 loss to the Chiefs. Landry -- who typically leads the Browns in targets on a weekly basis -- finished behind Duke Johnson in that category. After a breakout campaign in 2017, Landry hasn't been the same player thus far with the Browns.The 25-year-old wideout has just two touchdown receptions, which is a far cry from the nine he had with the Dolphins a season ago. If Johnson continues to take targets away, it could ultimately cause a disappointing finish for Landry.
Landry caught eight of 12 passes for 39 yards during Sunday's 33-18 loss to Pittsburgh. Baker Mayfield found Landry up the sideline for a 21-yard gain to end the first quarter, but the Steelers defense bottled him up from then on. After working with Tyrod Taylor for much of the preseason, his chemistry with Mayfield seemingly still needs work. Though both of his touchdowns this season have come from Mayfield, the two have connected on just half of Landry's targets, 29 of 57, for a mere 8.6 yards per reception in the rookie's five starts. Their connection rate has improved to 67 percent over the past two games, and next Sunday will be a quality opportunity to take another step forward against a bottom-ranked Chiefs pass defense.
Landry hauled in 10 of 15 targets for 97 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss at the hands of the Buccaneers. Landry demonstrated tremendous effort in extending the football across the pylon with 2:28 to go in regulation, helping the Browns knot up the score at 23 apiece to send Cleveland to its fourth overtime appearance in seven outings. As would be expected for a team lacking weapons on the perimeter, the reliable Landry has benefited from an extraordinary volume of work, compiling double-digit targets in every game but one this season. He led the NFL in receptions during 2017 by way of a similarly bountiful workload (10.1 targets per game), but his efficiency has plummeted in his first year as a Brown. Landry hauled in a proficient 69.6 percent of his targets last year for Miami, but thus far this year has posted a catch rate of just 50.6 percent. Still, expect the fifth-year man to persist in putting up impressive numbers, as Cleveland draws the Steelers, Chiefs and Falcons over the next three weeks (all three ranking among the NFL's bottom 10 pass defenses).
Landry corralled two of nine targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Chargers. Landry was third on the team in targets behind David Njoku (12) and Antonio Callaway (10), which comes as a surprise considering Landry entered Week 6 tied for the fifth-most targets in the NFL. Landry and Baker Mayfield have yet to look in sync since the rookie quarterback took the starting job. The 25-year-old receiver has 11 catches on 29 targets for 114 yards over the last three games, and just hasn't looked like the same PPR monster he's often been in the past. He'll look to get back on track against a struggling Buccaneers secondary next week.
