Coleman, who hauled in one catch on six targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 28-24 loss to Pittsburgh, ends 2018 with 23 receptions for 305 yards and two touchdowns.
It was another lost season for Coleman, as the wideout missed seven games with a broken hand and was unable to find his footing when healthy. During his first two years in the NFL, Coleman has appeared in just 19 games and has caught just 56 of 130 targets for 718 yards and five touchdowns. The 23-year-old will enter 2018 as Cleveland's No. 2 receiver behind Josh Gordon, and hopefully, with better and more consistent quarterback play, Coleman will take a big step forward, though that was the expectation heading into this season.
Coleman brought in one of three targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 27-10 loss to Baltimore.
Since Josh Gordon made his return to the field in Week 13, Coleman has taken a back seat in the offense. The second-year wideout out of Baylor has only managed to haul in six of 13 targets for 78 yards during that stretch, while Gordon has been targeted a whopping 28 times, including 11 targets versus the Ravens. Coleman was expected to break out after a rough rookie year, but a broken hand forced him to miss a significant chunk of the season and he's yet to build a strong rapport with quarterback DeShone Kizer.
Coleman caught five of six targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-21 overtime loss to the Packers.
Coleman tied for the team target lead with Josh Gordon, who caught three passes for 69 yards and a score of his own. From Coleman's perspective, it was a big improvement from the previous week, when Gordon held an 11-4 edge in targets. Given the lack of complementary options in the receiving corps, Cleveland should be able to keep both wideouts busy throughout December, including in Week 15 against a Ravens team that recently lost top cornerback Jimmy Smith to a torn Achilles.
Coleman played 81 percent of the snaps on offense in Sunday's 19-10 loss to the Chargers, failing to catch a pass on four targets.
Coleman's snap share took a slight dip after sitting at 93 and 90 percent in his first two games back from a broken hand, but the real impact of Josh Gordon's return was felt in the target department, where Coleman tied for his lowest mark in 16 career games. Gordon handled a slightly lower snap share (76 percent) but still drew a team-high 11 targets, seemingly stepping right back in as the No. 1 receiver after a three-year hiatus. Coleman may have to settle for second billing in Week 14 against the Packers.
Coleman was unable to haul in any of his four targets during Sunday's 19-10 loss to the Chargers.
Josh Gordon's return was expected to aid Corey Coleman, but that wasn't the case on Sunday versus the Chargers. Gordon saw seven more targets than Coleman, and for the first time in his short career, Coleman finished a game without a reception. This may just be an aberration, especially considering a tough matchup with the Chargers' elite cornerbacks, but consider Coleman a risky fantasy start until he proves he can be productive alongside Gordon.
