Landry fell 13 yards shy of 1,000 with a career-low 8.8 yards per reception, but he nevertheless appeased all fantasy investors with an NFL-high 112 catches and nine TDs, four more than his previous personal best. While his PPR appeal is unquestioned, it might surprise some to observe his remarkable standard-scoring consistency (WR15, 16, and 14) over the past three years. The Dolphins, however, never possessed a wideout as talented as Josh Gordon or a prolific pass-catching RB like Duke Johnson. The volume-dependent Landry will likely lose some targets and experience TD regression, which is why he's falling.How much longer will the fantasy community hold out hope on Watkins? One more year. He has caught 67 of 122 targets over the last two seasons combined and followed last year's only 100-yard showing by dispersing 28 yards through three contests. Yet six scores vaulted him to WR23 after a Week 8 bye, and Patrick Mahomes is a better partner for downfield damage than Jared Goff. He's an interesting high-upside gamble (especially in Best Ball drafts) near the seventh or eighth round.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
This offseason, Landry went from the best possible situation with little competition and a QB who loved him to the worst possible situation in a crowded receiver core and a QB who passes the ball less than 500 times per season. Add in that he is also due for touchdown regression and we may be looking at the biggest disappointment this year.Don't give up on Watkins, who was a train wreck last season. He didn't know the playbook because of when he was traded and the Rams weren't creative with their use of him. Kansas City has big plans for Sammy apparently, and if he can stay healthy, Watkins has all the talent in the world for a huge breakout.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Probably a tad underrated in standard leagues, but Landry won't see 160-plus targets with Tyrod Taylor under center. Should see a healthy number of red zone targets with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce occupying defenders.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
A target magnet who ranks 5th in NFL in that category over past three seasons - CLE has a bit more aerial competition than his former employer, but already buzz that Landry is QB Taylor's go-to guy. The standard Golden Tate line (90/1000/5) also seems about right for Landry. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Going from 140-plus targets to one where he will have a tough time seeing 110 targets is a very big deal for someone like Landry. I believe he's a better football player than what the Dolphins used him as, and the Browns seem to agree, lining him up all over the field. The fact that the Browns traded away Corey Coleman and that Josh Gordon has been away from the team makes me much more optimistic in Landry's expected usage. Put me down for someone who believes he'll be a consistent WR3 with upside for more should Gordon miss any time. It wouldn't shock me to see Watkins finish as the best Chiefs wide receiver, as I believe he's the most talented one. The issue is that he's learning his third offense in three years, which can cripple a wide receiver in year-one. Because of that, Tyreek Hill is the preferred option in 2018. Still, the Chiefs didn't pay Watkins $50 million to see 60-80 targets, so I'd expect him to be a WR3 more often than not. With Pat Mahomes under center and a bad defense, the recipe is there for increased pass attempts. Knowing each of their costs, Watkins is the better fantasy pick.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
What if I told you Jarvis Landry and Duke Johnson are the same guy. Landry averaged 6.1 yards per target and Duke averaged 7.5 yards per target. Njoku will also be involved in this same work area with his 6.4 yards per target. Feels like they all Cannibalize each other. Pass @DFFMemphis After watching the first preseason game all thoughts of Landry not getting enough targets have dissolved. I don't think he'll get as many as he did in Miami, but I think we will see him get a few yards after the catch this year. He's been lining up on the outside more and playing more of a WR2 role than from the slot.Coach Andy Reid said he's been moving Sammy Watkins "all over the place" on offense. "We were moving him everywhere," Reid said. "He hasn't had to do that in his career." In past stops with the Bills and Rams, Watkins has been a traditional X receiver on the back side of defenses, routinely facing the other team's best corner or seeing double coverage. Chiefs.com's B.J. Kissel writes the connection between Patrick Mahomes and Sammy Watkins is "real." Kissel writes Mahomes and Watkins have consistently been connecting throughout the offseason program, and fellow receiver Chris Conley said Watkins has picked up the offense "as fast as anyone I've seen." I generally stay away from this type of off season hype, but Sammy has been hindered by nagging injuries when in Buffalo and zero pre-season prep with his new QB in LA going into last year. Sammy has the athleticism and skill to be a WR1, I'm hoping he is fed the targets he will need to get there.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Sitting one slot behind his teammate Josh Gordon, Landry comes from an organization in the Dolphins whose level of deficiency was only matched by the level of targets shoved down Landry's throat. Jarvis sustained production in standard leagues based solely upon the number of 8 yard catches he would make, which as you could have guessed, was A LOT (112 catches to be exact). Now, it's anyone's guess how the pricey receiver will be used in Cleveland, but no one can doubt Landy's solid hands and great route running skills. Given sufficient volume and a decent amount of red zone targets, Landry can produce as a solid WR3 for your team, with a whole lot more upside based on target volume.Another wonderfully redundant signing, Watkins enters a Chiefs offense flush with key contributors and a player who already has the downfield role locked up in Tyreek Hill. With this in mind I have to assume Watkins will be utilized similar to how he was used in Los Angeles: the sporadic deep route and as a physical force at the goal line. Even then, however, Watkins upside will be severely diminished, and that's without even taking into account the progression of young QB Patrick Mahomes. I'm inclined to stay away in favor of other Tier 5 options, but Watkins is still the #2 receiver in a gunslinging KC offense.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Landry landed in Cleveland, and even though that team looks like they will be much better this season, the Browns will have a lot of mouths to feed in the receiving game. I expect Landry to lead the team in targets, but his upside will likely be diminished somewhat.Watkins lands in Kansas City and will be a boom-or-bust fantasy prospect once again. I do like that he gets a strong-armed Patrick Mahomes throwing to him, as the deep ball is where he has done much of his damage in the NFL. I will likely draft Watkins this year for his upside but be prepared for another disappointment.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Landry is more of a PPR fiend but we have no way in knowing if his role or chemistry with Tyrod will make him worth the riskWho knows how Watkins will fit in a new system with basically a rookie QB playing but I have to trust the talent here
Raju Byfield

Should soak up targets for Taylor but for the first time in his career he will have talent that can produce around him to compete withMahomes to Watkins has a chance to be something special
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Landry is almost guaranteed to see 100 receptions every year and he had 9 touchdowns in 2017. It is impossible to know how he does in Cleveland, but even without good quarterback play in Miami, he found a way to thrive on that offense.
