2018 Week 17 vs BAL (9 / 5 / 102 / 1 rec)
Landry finished off the season on a high note, going for over 100 yards and scoring his fourth touchdown. His first target didn't come until the second quarter. He was open but the pass was too high for him to pull in, despite a jumping attempt. He came back on the next drive to make a 19-yard catch along the right sideline. He had a chance to break a big play on the ensuing drive as he got wide open down the middle of the field. Mayfield hit him with a perfect over-the-shoulder pass, but it hit Landry in the helmet and bounced away. That pass alone, without accounting for YAC, would have gone for 30 yards. There weren't many defenders in front of him so it stands to reason he could have run for a while after the catch. In the third quarter, he bounced back, hauling in a 48-yard touchdown reception from Baker Mayfield. Mayfield executed an excellent play-fake, which allowed Landry to get behind the defense down the left side. In the fourth quarter, Landry ripped off a 14-yard catch down the right sideline and then drew a red zone target, taking a five-yard reception down to the Baltimore one-yard line. He saved his best catch of the day for the second drive of the fourth quarter on a tough snatch catch while on the run from left to right. He showed his incredibly strong hands in maintaining possession while falling to the ground. The play was originally ruled an incompletion but was overturned upon replay review.
2018 Week 16 vs CIN (8 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Landry turned in another slow day as he just isn't seeing the target volume that he was earlier in the season. He and Mayfield had trouble connecting at the beginning of the game, with Mayfield overthrowing him on his first target and leading him too much on the ensuing target. Landry's arm led to his biggest play of the game. The Browns ran a gadget play where Antonio Callaway took a handoff and pitched it to Landry, who fired a 63-yard strike downfield to Breshad Perriman. It was a perfect throw to the open Perriman. On the first drive of the third quarter, Landry made a great over the shoulder catch down the right sideline, going for 19 yards. He was closely covered on the play. His final catch was a 14-yard gain on 3rd-and-19 which gave the Browns better field goal position. While Landry isn't feasting on high volume, he retains some upside as the No. 1 option in an up-and-coming Cleveland passing attack.
2018 Week 15 vs DEN (8 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)
Landry got off to a fast start, catching a 19-yard pass on the first offensive play of the game for Cleveland. He was mostly quiet after that big play, however, seeing just two more catches. He did lead the team with eight targets, but many of his targets were uncatchable as Baker Mayfield missed him high on several attempts. He came close to pulling in a one-handed catch in the first quarter but couldn't reel in a pass that was high and a little behind him. Landry was the intended target on Mayfield's second quarter interception. He was closely covered near the goal line but Mayfield targeted him anyway. The pass sailed over Landry's head for an easy interception for the Broncos defense. Landry did show strong hands on a 12-yard catch in the fourth quarter. On the grab, the defender had a hand in there trying to jar the ball loose, but Landry wouldn't allow it. His final catch was a red zone target from the Denver eight-yard line. He wound up bringing the ball down to the two-yard line on the play but several Broncos brought him down before he had a chance to reach for the goal line. Landry remains the team's top option in the passing game but Mayfield has been spreading the ball around to several receivers over the past few games, which has cut into Landry's volume.
2018 Week 14 vs CAR (4 / 3 / 57 / 1 rec, 2 / 54 / 1 rush)
While he wasn't heavily targeted, Landry found a way to make an impact on the game. The veteran receiver wound up scoring twice, once on a 51-yard reception and once on a three-yard run on an inside handoff. Landry also ripped off a 51-yard run which saw him get dragged down at the Carolina four-yard line. Both of Landry's rushes came on the same play, an inside run where he started on the left side of the formation. He could have had a bigger game but he had two catches called back due to offensive penalties. Landry had an 18-yard catch called back after an ineligible player downfield penalty and a 16-yarder come back thanks to a holding penalty. Landry drew an end zone target in the first quarter but the pass was too high and the play was nullified by a defensive offsides penalty. Landry's 51-yard touchdown reception came at the beginning of the second quarter. With Landry double covered by Carolina, Baker Mayfield made a perfect throw, hitting Landry a few steps inside the end zone. Landry did lose a fumble at the beginning of the third quarter after Luke Kuechly ripped the ball away from him after a short pass. He bounced back with his 51-yard run where he showed his elusiveness in the open field on a winding, zigzagging run. He came close to scoring but was run down by Kuechly at the Carolina four-yard line. Thanks to Mayfield's tendency to spread the ball around, Landry isn't getting the volume but creative play-calling helped him to turn in a big game.
2018 Week 13 vs HOU (9 / 6 / 103 / 0 rec)
Landry broke a mini slump, topping 100 yards for the first time since Week 3. He caught three passes in the team's poor first half, going for 16, seven, and 22 yards. His 22-yard reception over the middle was a nice snatch catch off of an accurate throw from Baker Mayfield. Landry was then quiet until garbage time in the fourth quarter. He made an impressive one-handed catch which went for 25 yards and then tip-toed the sideline for a 28-yarder. On the second drive of the fourth quarter, it appeared he and Mayfield would connect on another long pass but a hard hit near the right sideline jarred the ball loose. The replay showed the defender may have gotten away with a helmet-to-helmet hit on the play. Landry's final catch was a short five-yarder on a crossing route. While Landry isn't showing the high floor he did in fantasy when he was a Dolphin, he remains the team's top wide receiver and should see enough volume to stay afloat, especially in games where the Browns are trailing or passing to keep up on the scoreboard.
2018 Week 12 vs CIN (5 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Landry was the only Cleveland offensive star who didn't get in on the first half scoring. The veteran receiver had another low-volume day, catching just three of his five targets. Landry has shown over his career that he needs high volume to post numbers but Baker Mayfield has really been spreading the ball around over the past few games instead of just locking onto Landry, which was happening earlier in the year. It also didn't help Landry's case that the Browns built a 28-7 lead by halftime and only passed the ball four times in the second half. Landry drew a deep target on the second drive of the game but the pass was thrown too low for him to catch. His first catch came out of a bunch right formation where he got open and pulled in a nine-yard gain on 3rd-and-three. At the beginning of the second quarter, Landry saw an end zone target but it was thrown too high. That pass attempt wound up getting nullified by offsetting penalties. Landry's final catch was a seven-yard gain off of a quick pass in the third quarter. Struggling to see a high volume of targets over the past few weeks, it is time to start treating Landry as more of a WR3 than the WR2 he has been over the past few seasons.
2018 Week 10 vs ATL (5 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Landry turned in a slow outing, tying a season-low with two receptions. It appeared was going to have a big day at the outset of the game, catching a 12-yard pass on the first play of the game and tacking on his other catch on the second drive of the game. He then was shutout for the remainder of the contest. He did see a red zone target in the third quarter but the pass was thrown too high. Later in the third quarter, Baker Mayfield rushed a throw and passed the ball at Landry's feet. Later, Landry did appear to get open down the right sideline but Mayfield's pass was slightly overthrown. Had they connected it would have gone for a long gain. Part of Landry's struggles in Week 10 can be attributed to the Browns building a big lead and shifting into clock-killing mode in the fourth quarter. Baker Mayfield also spread the ball around in the game, completing passes to nine different receivers. Landry remains the team's top target in the passing game despite the slow outing.
2018 Week 9 vs KC (7 / 6 / 50 / 0 rec)
Just like in Week 8, Landry had a game where he caught plenty of passes but didn't accumulate much yardage. To their credit, the Chiefs defense was quick to bring down receivers after the catch, limiting chances for yards after the catch. That being said, he did come close to breaking a big gain in the second quarter. He caught a two-yard pass on a slant and was barely brought down by his ankle. There was a lot of open space ahead of him had he just been able to shake the tackle. Landry did appear to injure his right arm toward the end of the second quarter but he was able to return for the second half. He has quietly dealt with an assortment of injuries this season, including a knee injury earlier and now arm issues over the past three weeks. Landry continues to see plenty of targets but he has settled in as a steady low-end WR2 with low upside in his first season with the Browns.
2018 Week 8 vs PIT (12 / 8 / 39 / 0 rec)
Landry once again led the Browns in receiving but he really struggled to do much with all of his looks. Of Landry's eight catches, three went for one-yard losses and two more went for just four yards each. The Browns really struggled to protect the quarterback in this one which forced the offense to lean mostly on short pass attempts to move the ball. His best gain of the day was a 21-yard reception at the end of the first quarter after Baker Mayfield did a great job escaping a sack and hit Landry while rolling to his right. He did come close to scoring a touchdown in garbage time on the final drive as he had a step on the defender in the end zone but the pass was overthrown. The team dismissed head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley on Monday in a move that has to be considered a positive for Landry.
2018 Week 7 vs TB (15 / 10 / 97 / 1 rec)
Landry shook off three straight slow outings to lead the Browns in all receiving categories in Week 7 against Tampa Bay. He benefitted from the team's conservative, short-passing attack in the first half as he was the recipient of several short targets from Baker Mayfield. He did draw one deeper target down the left sideline in the first quarter but the pass was overthrown by Mayfield. The team started throwing deeper in the second half. In the third quarter, Landry had a step on his defender deep but he was overthrown by Mayfield again. He made several impressive catches in the game, including a great leaping catch for 18 yards on third down and another catch where he spun his body in the air to catch a pass thrown behind him. He came close to scoring a touchdown on the first drive of the fourth quarter, getting stopped on the two-yard line following a 10-yard pickup. He might have been able to score on the play had Mayfield thrown the pass a bit earlier. He did get a touchdown later, making a spectacular sliding grab at the Tampa Bay one-yard line and, from the ground, reaching the ball across the end zone right before he was touched down by the defense. For what it is worth, a team reporter noted that Landry was having some trouble lifting his left arm to get his shirt on after the game. He stated that he would be playing in Week 8 but it is something to monitor.
2018 Week 6 vs LAC (9 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
As has been the case of late, Landry and Baker Mayfield struggled to connect with one another. For the third straight week, Landry saw plenty of targets but was only able to finish with two catches, both of which came in the first half of the game. This is the third consecutive game where he failed to convert more than 50% of his targets into catches. Some of his struggles can be attributed to excellent coverage from the Chargers, who did a great job limiting the Cleveland passing attack. Landry was a popular target in the red zone on the first drive of the second quarter as he drew two red zone targets. The first was thrown too low and Baker Mayfield was hit as he threw on the second, which caused the ball to fall well short of Landry. In the third quarter, Landry dropped a pass when he attempted a one-handed catch. It appeared he could have gotten the other hand up on the play. Landry's usage remains encouraging and he should bounce back once he and Mayfield can start connecting more frequently.
2018 Week 5 vs BAL (10 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Landry got off to a slow start, catching just one pass for 10 yards in the first half of the game. He was able to absorb a big hit on the play and still hold onto the football. In the second quarter he got a deep shot down the left side of the field but the ball was overthrown by Baker Mayfield. He was closely covered on the play and would have had to make a contested catch had the pass been more accurate. He got going in the second half, catching several short passes and running after the catch to tack on additional yardage. He saw an end zone target in the third quarter but the pass was thrown too high. Landry was upset after the play and was seen campaigning with the officials for a pass interference flag. In the fourth quarter he came out of the backfield to catch a short pass and turn it into a 17-yard gain. He did blunder on the play as he should have gotten out of bounds to stop the clock but instead was brought down trying to fight for extra yards. In overtime he caught a 27-yard pass and was later leveled on a deep pass attempt. The ball was uncatchable but it appeared an argument for an illegal contact penalty could have been made. Landry is coming off two slower games now but he remains the No. 1 option in the Cleveland passing game.
2018 Week 4 vs OAK (10 / 4 / 34 / 1 rec)
Landry did most of his damage in the first half, catching three of his four passes before halftime. His only second half catch was a two-yard touchdown. Landry got off to a rough start, dropping his first target on a catchable pass during the first drive of the game. He bounced back with a nine-yard gain on a short slant later in the first quarter. He then had an 11-yard gain nullified by an illegal block penalty. He later saw an end zone target on that same drive, but he slipped on the play. It most likely would have been a touchdown if Landry had been able to keep his footing. In the second quarter, Landry lined up in the backfield and turned a short reception into a 15-yard gain. He committed another drop in the same quarter as he was unable to hold onto the ball following a big hit. Landry's two-yard touchdown reception was impressive as he snared a high pass over his shoulders in the back corner of the end zone. He ran a great route where he tricked the defender into thinking he wasn't part of the play before he took off toward the back corner of the end zone for the score. Landry continues to lead the Browns in targets on a weekly basis and is the team's preferred option in the passing game.
2018 Week 3 vs NYJ (15 / 8 / 103 / 0 rec)
Landry was slogging through a slow evening with Tyrod Taylor under center, catching just one pass from the veteran in just under two quarters of play. Once rookie Baker Mayfield entered the game, however, Landry came to life. He was on the receiving end of Mayfield's first NFL pass, a 14-yard completion over the middle. In the third quarter, Landry made the play of the game when he reached up to snare a 29-yard reception with two defenders draped all over him. He brought the ball down to New York's one-yard line. Landry also showed his passing skills as he completed a two-point conversion pass to Mayfield on a trick play. Landry did have a tough drop in the game as he let one of Mayfield's passes hit him in the chest and fall to the ground. That catchable pass would have gone for at least a nine-yard gain. On that same drive, Landry saw a red zone target, which he caught for a 12-yard gain, taking the ball to the Jets' eight-yard line. On 2nd-and-goal from the one-yard line, Landry caught a short shovel pass which went for no gain. Landry and Mayfield showed great chemistry together and should prove to be a productive duo going forward.
2018 Week 2 vs NO (7 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Landry didn't see the target volume that he did in Week 1, although that was partially due to a ball-control game plan that the Browns used during most of the first half. Landry remains Tyrod Taylor's favorite target, tying for the team lead with seven targets. His first catch was a three-yard reception. He then ripped off consecutive 14 and 22-yard receptions in the second quarter. He drew another deep target in the third quarter, roughly 12 yards downfield, but Taylor threw too high. Landry provided a clutch reception at the end of the fourth quarter, picking up a 25-yard gain which helped put the Browns in position to attempt a game-tying field goal. In Todd Haley's offense, Landry continues to be used downfield more than he was with the Dolphins, which raises his weekly ceiling.
2018 Week 1 vs PIT (15 / 7 / 106 / 0 rec)
Landry led the team with 15 targets on a rainy day in Cleveland. The veteran receiver wasn't especially efficient with the looks, catching just seven, although many of the incompletions were uncatchable passes. The Browns targeted Landry all over the field, allowing him to pick up some large chunk plays. He caught a deep 33-yard pass down the left sideline in the second quarter where he was wide open. He actually had to come back a bit on the pass, which was underthrown. In the third quarter the Browns took another deep shot to him but the pass was overthrown. He bounced back on the next possession with a 39-yard reception. Landry had a shot at a touchdown in the fourth quarter as he was open in the end zone, but the pass was overthrown.
