Jarvis Landry Week 8 Outlook - Raiders at Browns

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 8:42am EDT

He's now up to 39 targets without a touchdown, which ranks as the second-most in the league without a touchdown. He's quietly averaging 9.4 yards per target, which is actually the highest number of his career. If he starts scoring touchdowns at a reasonable rate, he'll be viewed much differently in fantasy. With Beckham out for the year, we should expect him to get a solid bump in targets, too. He's averaged just 5.6 targets per game to this point, which is typically reserved for those in the WR4/5 range. The Raiders have faced 18.7 targets per game to wide receivers, so given how top-heavy the Browns have been, we should expect Landry to see at least six targets in this game. The Raiders slot cornerback is Lamarcus Joyner, who's been mediocre in coverage, allowing 25-for-34 passing for 256 yards and... no touchdowns. But still, it's not like he won't get out of Joyner's coverage at times. We saw both Chris Godwin and Cole Beasley score against the Raiders, so it's not out of the question. Landry is moving up the rankings moving forward and should be considered a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 who comes with a solid floor.
