Landry is an extremely safe pick, but he lacks any real upside unless injuries were to occur. Landry has a career 10.4 yards per reception, and has been held to 5 or fewer TD's in 4/5 years. Of course anyone could get lucky, but it's less than ideal drafting players who need luck to pay off. The addition of Odell is great for the offense, will sustain drives, and lead to more TD's. So while he's likely to see less overall targets, it might not be that many less, and there will be the most scoring opportunities he's seen in his career. I'm ok drafting Landry in full and half PPR leagues, but I would avoid him in leagues that still use standard scoring. He's not a target, but also not an avoid. Just a guy you can draft if the value presents itself.

Despite no Josh Gordon and no Odell Beckham Jr. on the team last year, Landry finished as the WR19 despite playing all 16 games and seeing 149 targets. That was the eighth-most targets among receivers and the 27th-most points per game. Not exactly efficient, and Freddie Kitchens actually dialed back his targets when he took over. With Beckham in the mix, look for Landry to move down into the 120-target range, which is still valuable, but he's more of a WR3 than he is a WR2.

Landry should be much more efficient with WR OBJ there to take the defensive attention off of him. He is a WR2 talent that should be much more productive if he is allowed to play in the slot.
