Jarvis Landry Player Overview

What You Need To Know:

  • Landry’s never missed an NFL game.
  • Despite heavy red zone usage in 2019, he scored only 6 TDs. His TD rate is now at 6.1% through 2 years in Cleveland.
  • Landry underwent hip surgery on February 4 but should be ready for Week 1.


Still consistent

Landry entered the 2019 season having never missed a game.

That remained true after 17 weeks, despite playing through a hip injury that required February surgery. He sustained a concussion but cleared protocol quickly.

Landry added 80+ catches yet again. He also remained a low-volume TD scorer, registering 6 scores. He’s now tallied a TD rate of just 6.1% in 2 seasons with the Browns.

Call it strange, as only 3 WRs garnered more red zone targets last season. Only 3 WRs had a greater share of their team’s red zone targets, too.

So while Landry wasn’t typically a high upside option — at least when he wasn’t dropping 10-148-2 on Miami — he still finished as the PPR WR12. Despite subpar QB play, he’s now slotted as a top-20 WR in 5 straight seasons.


Injury clouds 2020 outlook

Let’s circle back to that February hip surgery.

“Right now, I’m a little bit ahead of schedule," Landry said in May. "But the most important thing right now is just taking it day by day. You know, I can’t predict when exactly I’ll be on the field, whether that’s July, August or September.”

Of course, we’ll monitor his health each step of the way. For now, we’ll assume he’s ready for the season opener on September 13.

Landry will learn a new offense under 1st-year HC Kevin Stefanski, whose 2019 Vikings offense went run-heavy and emphasized 2-TE formations. Landry lined up in the slot on nearly 62% of his snaps, helping him record the 7th-most slot yards among WRs. We don’t anticipate a drastic change there.

The depth of this unit means Landry probably won’t see another 140 targets. Odell Beckham returns after battling a sports hernia in 2019. David Njo…
