Ever since trade rumors first popped up this season, Jarvis Landry truthers such as myself have been dreaming about him landing on a team like the Chicago Bears where he could develop a rapport with a young quarterback and be a target hog. So much for that dream. Instead, it seems he will land on the now incredibly congested Browns roster that now includes Tyrod Taylor. Let’s examine what this means for everyone involved.
Jarvis Landry, WR, CLE
Since entering the league in 2014, Jarvis Landry has the most receptions of anyone four years into their career. He has his detractors, but over the past three seasons, his lowest finish in PPR formats was 13th. In fact, he’s coming off a season in which he finally scored some touchdowns and found himself as the fourth-best receiver in PPR formats.
The move to the Browns changes everything. In Miami, Landry may have had to compete with Devante Parker and Kenny Stills, but neither was a true threat to him. Now, he must fight Josh Gordon, Corey Coleman, David Njoku, Duke Johnson, and whoever else the Browns use their high draft capital on for targets.
