2021 Half PPR Draft Rankings

Odell Beckham Jr. Note

Here were my points against Beckham last year as a top 15-WR: he had finished as the WR83, WR16, and WR26 in the previous three seasons, the Vikings ran the ball 48% of the time under Kevin Stefanski (fourth most in the NFL) and so he'd never approach his customary 10 targets per game, and he's an injury risk. Well, the Browns ran the ball 48% of the time last year (fourth most in the NFL), Beckham received seven targets per game, and he lost much of the season due to injury. All the concerns over Beckham hold true this year except for his price, which is now as the 25th WR in half-PPR ADP. Beckham will certainly have some boom games and the Browns' offense should improve this year in Stefanski's second year, but the lack of target volume is going to put a ceiling on Beckham's value. Fantasy managers are drafting him as a borderline WR2 - that's exactly what he is.

Jarvis Landry Note

Here's a fun fact: Landry is one of just seven wide receivers who've finished as a top-24 fantasy wide receiver in five of the last six years. The others are Julio Jones, Mike Evans, DeAndre Hopkins, Davante Adams, Brandin Cooks, and Amari Cooper. However, the issue is that Landry isn't the "sexy" pick that everyone wants because he's never going to be the reason you win a championship. With Odell Beckham due back to the lineup, it's only going to cap his upside even more, and therefore supress his ADP. You need balance on your fantasy roster and Landry can provide stability that not many have. Just keep your weekly expectations in check.
