Week 14: vs Cincinnati Bengals
FBG says: Good matchup. The Browns passing offense remains one of the most disappointing units of 2019, as Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham just have not figured out how to work together this year. Beckham was held to just 29 yards last week with just three receptions. Beckham is now questionable with a groin injury, and if he is unable to go, the Browns receiving group is incredibly thin. The Browns have an underlying issue which is that Baker Mayfield has been atrocious cycling through his reads this year, but at the same time the receiving options outside of Landry and Beckham have been horrendous at getting open putting a lot of pressure on Landry and Beckham. This makes the job of the quarterback incredibly tough when he defense knows they only need to take away your first and second read. The offensive line has not helped the situation as Mayfield was sacked five times last week and has now been sacked 32 times this year. The good news is that the Browns will get left tackle Greg Robinson back after he missed last week with a concussion, but he is just average at best and the main issue is the right side of the line with Chris Hubbard and Wyatt Teller at right guard. The Bengals are a passing defense continue to be one of the worst in the NFL this season. While they have only allowed one 300-yard passer on the year, this is mostly due to the Bengals having faced the fewest passing attempts in the NFL this year as teams have not needed to throw in blowout situations. When teams do throw, they carve through this defense as they have allowed the most yards-per-attempt on the season at 8.5. The problem is that outside of Darqueze Dennard in the slot, the Bengals have some of the worst combinations of corners and safeties as William Jackson and B.W. Webb both are liabilities at corner. Another issue is the overall lack of pass rush generated by the Bengals as they have just 20 sacks on the year which is the third-fewest in the NFL this season which gives opposing quarterbacks more time to pick on the weak corners and safeties of the Bengals.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs PIT (11 / 6 / 76 / 0 rec)
Landry led the team in receiving yet again. He was targeted on Baker Mayfield's first pass of the game but dropped what looked to be a catchable ball. He made up for it with an exceptional 15-yard catch along the right sideline on third-and-14. Landry stuck his toes in the ground and extended his body over the sideline to pull in the ball on an impressive grab. The play was originally ruled an incompletion but the call was overturned to a catch after Cleveland challenged it. He caught two passes on Cleveland's lone touchdown drive, an 11-yard gain down the middle and an eight-yard gain where Mayfield was hit as he threw. On the final drive of the second quarter he was targeted on a deep pass to the right but the throw was too high. Landry was busy in the second half. On the first drive, he pulled in two catches, a 16-yard gain and a seven-yard catch where he was closely covered. He had a third catch on that series, a four-yard gain, which was nullified by an offensive holding penalty. In the fourth quarter, Landry saw another deep target, this one near the Pittsburgh goal line on the left side. He couldn't hold on to what looked to be a catchable ball. On the final drive of the game, Landry saw a deep target down the middle of the field. The pass was broken up by Minkah Fitzpatrick. Landry was also the intended target on the game-ending interception. The ball was thrown high and behind Landry, which allowed cornerback Joe Haden to make a diving interception, ending Cleveland's comeback hopes.
2019 Week 12 vs MIA (13 / 10 / 148 / 2 rec)
Landry had a huge game against his former team. Landry was busy on the team's first drive, ripping off an 18-yard catch near the right sideline and then drawing a pass interference flag in the Miami red zone. He capped off that drive with a seven-yard touchdown catch on a quick slant. On the third drive he picked up another six yards on a short reception in the middle of the field. On the team's first drive of the second quarter, Landry drew another defensive pass interference penalty near the Miami goal line. He followed that up with a five-yard touchdown catch in the end zone. He made a nice leaping catch near the back of the end zone for his second touchdown of the afternoon. He stayed heavily involved in the second half. He started with a 15-yard slant on the first drive of the half and on the next drive picked up receptions of 17 and 12 yards, both off of play action. In the fourth quarter, Landry made a great contested catch for a 22-yard gain. He had a defender draped all over him and still made the grab. He followed that up with a 37-yard reception that got the team into the red zone. Landry did a great job adjusting to the ball in the air to make the grab. Miami challenged that he committed offensive pass interference on the play but the call was upheld.
2019 Week 11 vs PIT (7 / 4 / 43 / 1 rec)
Landry had another solid game, finding the end zone for the third-straight contest. His first target didn't come until the fourth drive of the game. He got wide open and hauled in a 25-yard reception. He capped off that drive with a one-yard touchdown. Landry ran from right to left along the goal line on the route. The defense lost track of him along the way and he was all by himself for the one-yard score on the left side of the end zone. On the following drive he picked up a six-yard catch on third-and-10. On the sixth drive, he made a diving attempt but couldn't haul in the target. He was targeted again on that drive but the defense broke up the pass. It looked like contact was made before the ball got there but there was no flag on the play. In the third quarter, Landry got wide open again down the left sideline but Mayfield overthrew him. That play could have gone for a big gain had they connected.
2019 Week 10 vs BUF (10 / 9 / 97 / 1 rec)
Despite teammate Odell Beckham Jr. getting more notoriety, Landry has been the team's better receiver this season. He came down with several clutch catches on both of the Browns' touchdown drives. He made three grabs on the first drive of the game. The first two were a 12-yarder and an 18-yard reception where he caught the ball near the line of scrimmage. He then hauled in a 17-yard touchdown pass in the end zone on a great over the shoulder, fingertip catch. On the team's fourth drive, Landry caught three more passes, going for 10, five, and two yards. The two-yard reception came on first-and-goal at Buffalo's three-yard line. Landry was quiet in the third quarter before putting together a big fourth quarter. He lost three yards on a short screen and then had a 12-yard catch on the ensuing drive. On the team's game-winning drive, Landry had a clutch, 24-yard reception that got the Browns down to the Buffalo seven-yard line and eventually led to the game-winning touchdown. He made an impressive catch as he was looking over his right shoulder before adjusting and flipping his body around to catch the ball over his left shoulder near the left sideline.
2019 Week 9 vs DEN (13 / 6 / 51 / 1 rec)
Landry has been heavily targeted in this offense, having seen 23 targets over the past two weeks. Landry continues to show nice chemistry with Baker Mayfield, which leads to the quarterback looking his way when he needs a big catch. Landry saw two targets on the first drive, with the first a catchable ball that he wasn't able to haul in. The second target was forced into double coverage and was deflected by a defender before Landry could get his hands on it. Landry drew an end-zone target in the second quarter but he was tripped up by the defender. The pass appeared to be too high for Landry to catch, even if he had remained on his feet. Landry was leaned on heavily on the final drive of the first half. He caught a five-yard pass on second-and-two and then had a big 13-yard gain on third-and-eight. He drew another end zone target at the end of that drive but the pass was too high. Landry caught three passes on the first drive of the third quarter, one that went for minus-one yard, a fantastic 19-yard gain on a play where he was closely covered by the defender, and a six-yard gain down to the Denver seven-yard line. Landry found the end zone for the first time all season on a nine-yard reception in the fourth quarter. He caught a short pass and made the first tackler miss before racing into the end zone. Landry was the intended target on the Browns' final offensive play of the game but the ball was deflected by a defender before it got to him.
2019 Week 8 vs NE (10 / 5 / 65 / 0 rec)
Landry led the Browns in receiving in the loss. On the first drive, he got open in the middle of the field but Mayfield delivered a pass that was too high for Landry to catch. In the second quarter, he was closely covered but was able to make a catch which went for 13 yards. He followed that up with a 12-yard gain on the left side of the field. Landry was quiet in the third quarter but came back to post a productive fourth quarter. He got wide open and hauled in what was about a 30-yard reception but the play was nullified by an offensive pass interference call. The penalty was assigned to Landry but replay showed that it was Antonio Callaway who set a pick on Landry's defender on a crossing route. He then tacked on a short seven-yard reception on the ensuing possession. The third possession of the quarter saw plenty of work for Landry. He had an incompletion on a target thrown behind him, then a 12-yard reception to the right, and then another incompletion down the middle of the field. Landry looked like he wanted a pass interference flag on that play but none came.
2019 Week 6 vs SEA (5 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)
Landry had a quiet game after leading the team in receiving the previous two weeks. His first catch came on the second drive on a high pass. He followed that up with a clutch, 27-yard catch on fourth-and-seven that got the team down to the Seattle 11-yard line. In the second quarter he saw an end zone target. The pass was slightly behind him and he had the ball bounce off his hand for an interception. The pass looked catchable but it also wasn't as accurate as it needed to be. In the third quarter he had two targets fall incomplete, both being thrown too high to catch. The second one was nullified by a roughing the passer penalty. He came close to scoring in the fourth quarter on fourth-and-goal at the Seattle one-yard line. He caught a short pass and fought forward toward the goal line. He reached the ball forward, trying to break the plane of the goal line and fumbled into the end zone. Cleveland challenged that he broke the plane before the fumble but the call on the field was upheld.
2019 Week 5 vs SF (6 / 4 / 75 / 0 rec)
Landry wound up leading the Browns in receiving for the second consecutive game. His first catch was a 20-yard completion from Odell Beckham Jr. on a trick play. At the end of the first quarter, he got open in the middle of the field and went for a 25-yard gain. In the second quarter, Landry made a diving 12-yard catch and then had an 18-yard gain down the right sideline. A final first-half target was tipped at the line of scrimmage. Landry was quiet in the second half, dropping a short pass to the right that was slightly high but looked catchable.
2019 Week 4 vs BAL (10 / 8 / 167 / 0 rec)
Landry had a huge afternoon, posting a career-high 167 receiving yards in just three quarters of action. Unfortunately, he left at the end of the third quarter with a concussion. Landry found himself in single coverage for much of the afternoon and was able to get open frequently on short and intermediate passes. He was also dominant after the catch, racking up YAC frequently. Landry didn't find the end zone but he could have scored twice. He had a big 65-yard reception in the second quarter. He caught a short slant and spun out of a tackle before taking off down the right sideline. It looked like he would reach the end zone but he started to stumble and wound up falling down at the Baltimore 22-yard line. At the end of the third quarter, Landry again came close to scoring, this time getting forced out at the Baltimore two-yard line after a 29-yard gain on an inside shovel pass. He appeared to hit his head on the turf on the play and was diagnosed with a concussion shortly thereafter, ending his day after the third quarter.
2019 Week 3 vs LAR (9 / 3 / 62 / 0 rec)
Landry didn't finish with huge stats but he was Baker Mayfield's preferred end zone target in this game. He caught the first pass of the game for a 10-yard gain. Later, in the second quarter, he saw a deep target down the right side of the field but the ball was thrown too far out of bounds. On the ensuing drive, he ripped off a 25-yard catch-and-run. He soon followed that up with a deep target down the middle of the field. It was a catchable pass but credit goes to corner Nickell Robey-Coleman for excellent defense in the pass breakup. On the final drive of the first half, Landry saw a red zone target but the ball was thrown too high. Landry was bumped by the defender at the tail end of his route and wanted a flag but the pass was uncatchable. His biggest contribution of the game came on the first drive of the third quarter. He drew a pass interference penalty in the end zone, bringing the Browns down to the Los Angeles one-yard line. On the next drive, he saw another deep target down the middle of the field but the pass was thrown behind him. He was open on the play but couldn't get his body turned around to make the grab. In the fourth quarter, Landry ripped off a 27-yard gain on a third-and -15. He saw two straight end zone targets on that final drive but the first was thrown too high and the second got tipped at the line of scrimmage.
2019 Week 2 vs NYJ (7 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
Landry had yet another slow game, which is becoming the norm since Freddie Kitchens took over as play-caller in 2018. He started the game off with a short, seven-yard catch on the first drive. Baker Mayfield went right back to him but this time the pass was a bit too high and Landry couldn't corral it. He saw a red zone target at the New York five-yard line but he dropped a catchable pass. Even had he made the catch, Landry had no chance at scoring as there were several Jets defenders in the vicinity. He was quiet until the final drive of the second quarter when he bobbled and then dropped what would have been a seven-yard catch. He then hauled in a 25-yard pass to set up a half-ending field goal. Not coincidentally, Odell Beckham was in the locker room getting an I.V. at the time. His final catch didn't come until the fourth quarter on a short reception that went for no gain. Not that it comes as a surprise but Landry has really taken a backseat to Beckham in the passing attack which is not good for his fantasy value.
2019 Week 1 vs TEN (7 / 4 / 67 / 0 rec, 1 / 10 / 0 rush)
Landry took a backseat to former LSU teammate Odell Beckham in the game but he still operated as the No. 2 option in the passing attack. His first touch was a 10-yard rush to the left. Baker Mayfield took a deep shot to Landry down the right sideline but Landry just couldn't bring the ball in for the reception. His two best plays of the afternoon came in the third quarter and led to the Browns' second touchdown. First, he caught a 23-yard pass on 3rd-and-16 to keep the drive from stalling out. Then he hauled in a 34-yard catch down the middle and brought it all the way down to the Tennessee three-yard line.
