Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs ATL (2 / 2 / 39 / 0 rec)
Callaway finished as the team's top receiver despite catching just two passes. Quarterback Baker Mayfield spread the ball around in this contest, completing passes to nine different receivers. Callaway's first catch was a nice 25-yard catch-and-run after he beat Desmond Trufant on a slant route. Callaway was mostly quiet after that, not drawing another target until his 14-yard catch on a comeback route in the fourth quarter.
2018 Week 9 vs KC (5 / 3 / 51 / 0 rec)
Callaway caught three passes in the game, including a big 38-yarder in the fourth quarter, which was the team's longest gain of the afternoon. He did suffer another drop, missing a catchable pass about 14 yards from the line of scrimmage. Callaway continues to play a lot due to the thin receiving corps in Cleveland but he has developed into an extreme boom/bust fantasy option in his rookie season. The return of Rashard Higgins following an MCL sprain could eat into Callaway's chances in the second half of the season.
2018 Week 8 vs PIT (6 / 5 / 36 / 1 rec)
Callaway scored for the first time since Week 2. He hauled in a one-yard score in the third quarter where Baker Mayfield hit him with a perfectly placed lob pass which he caught over the shoulder. He also tacked on a 13-yard reception in the first quarter where Mayfield hit him with a bullet down the right sideline. Callaway had a chance to add onto his yardage total but he was unable to squeeze a pass toward the end of the first quarter. The ball was thrown high and a bit behind him but he was able to get his hands on it. It wasn't an easy catch but it was a play he could have made.
2018 Week 7 vs TB (2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Callaway continues to lose ground in the offense, drawing just two official targets in the game. He had a third target which was nullified by a pass interference penalty. That penalty was a big play in the game as it came on an end zone target and put the Browns at the Tampa Bay one-yard line. They scored a rushing touchdown soon after. Callaway's only catch came on a short crossing route which he turned into a 14-yard gain. His other target was deep down the left sideline but it was overthrown.
2018 Week 6 vs LAC (10 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
Callaway was a popular target of Baker Mayfield in Week 6, finishing second on the team with 10 targets. This is encouraging after the team scaled back his role in Week 5. Due to injuries to the receiving corps, the Browns didn't have a choice but to use the rookie often against the Chargers. Callaway could have had a big game but failed to haul in a few deep shots. He had an end zone target in the first quarter but just missed hauling the pass in. It appeared to be a catchable ball and Callaway may have struggled with the sun on the play. In the second quarter he saw another target in the middle of the end zone but he was double covered and the ball was deflected by a defender. He saw another deep shot in the middle of the field in the fourth quarter but dropped the pass.
2018 Week 5 vs BAL (5 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec)
Callaway was coming off a rough game in Week 4 and saw his workload decreased in Week 5 against the Ravens. His five targets in the game were his least since Week 2. Callaway has struggled with drops this season and committed another bad one in this game. He had the ball in his hands but lost it when he tried to turn and run with it before securing the catch. He did show nice speed on a short screen which he turned into a nine-yard gain in the fourth quarter.
2018 Week 4 vs OAK (9 / 3 / 54 / 0 rec)
Callaway's final stat line looks decent thanks to a 59-yard catch and run in the fourth quarter but he really didn't play all that well against the Raiders. Callaway struggled with his footing and committed several drops in the game. He slipped and tipped a ball that wound up getting intercepted and returned for a touchdown in the first quarter. He did see a deep end zone shot on the team's third drive in the first quarter but Baker Mayfield overthrew him. Callaway's struggles continued in the second quarter as he dropped a two-point conversion pass. He also dropped another catchable pass toward the end of the third quarter. Callaway is an explosive playmaker but he is going to have some ups-and-downs as a rookie.
2018 Week 3 vs NYJ (10 / 4 / 20 / 0 rec)
Callaway finished with a pedestrian stat line but it could have been a much bigger day for the rookie. Callaway's 10 targets finished second on the team behind only Jarvis Landry. The rookie proved that he is hard to cover, getting open with regularity against New York. On the team's first drive, Callaway got a step on the defense but Tyrod Taylor's pass was underthrown on a deep shot. On the next drive, Callaway saw an end zone target but the defender ran into him before the ball got there. It looked like pass interference but no flag came from the officials on the play. At the beginning of the second quarter, Callaway got open deep again, but again was underthrown by Taylor. A better pass could have resulted in a touchdown. Callaway is operating as the clear No. 2 receiver in Cleveland's offense and should get plenty of looks going forward, although it appears he has a boom/bust element to his game. Cleveland is going to take some deep shots to him in most games; it will be up to him whether he reels them in or not.
2018 Week 2 vs NO (4 / 3 / 81 / 1 rec, 2 / 7 / 0 rush)
Callaway stands to be one of the main beneficiaries of the Browns' decision to move on from Josh Gordon. Callaway turned in the signature splash play of the game, hauling in a beautifully-thrown 47-yard touchdown strike from Tyrod Taylor to tie the game at 18-18 in the fourth quarter. Callaway got a step on his man downfield and Taylor put the ball right in his hands in the end zone for the rookie's first NFL touchdown. He also drew a pass interference penalty in the third quarter when he was hooked by cornerback Marshon Lattimore on a short slant. Callaway drew the start with Gordon out and should become a major cog in Cleveland's offense going forward.
