Week 12: vs Miami Dolphins
FBG says: Great matchup. The Browns over the last few weeks have made a fundamental shift in philosophies to simplify the offense and reduce the turnovers. The Browns have given Baker Mayfield three reads which is Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Kareem Hunt and then get rid of the ball. Kareem Hunt over the last few weeks has been a tremendous addition to the passing game with 17 targets over the last two weeks. The good news for the Browns is that the most difficult portion of their schedule is over as they have faced top 10 passing defenses in five of the last six weeks including three of the best defenses in football in Buffalo, New England, San Francisco, and Denver. The one area that the Browns haven't figured out is their red zone passing offense as Odell Beckham has just one touchdown on the season which was an 89-yard reception in Week 2 against the Jets. The Browns did get some great news this week as David Njoku will return which should give them another option in the passing game. The Dolphins secondary took a major hit this past week as safeties Bobby McCain and Pro Bowler Reshad Jones were both put on IR this week. With Jones being placed on IR, the team has now lost their three best as Minkah Fitzpatrick was traded, and Xavien Howard was already put on IR. On paper, the defense does not look that bad, but if you dig deeper into it, the Dolphins schedule has been one of the easiest against the pass over recent weeks as they have faced Josh Allen, Brian Hoyer, Sam Darnold, Mason Rudolph, Josh Allen, and Case Keenum in six consecutive weeks. Last week the Dolphins allowed Josh Allen to be named offensive player of the week as he threw for three touchdowns and 256 yards while John Brown torched this defense for 137 yards and two touchdowns. Speedy receivers have been an issue for the Dolphins as on the season John Brown had 137 yards and 2 touchdowns, JuJu Smith-Schuster had 103 yards and a touchdown, Terry McLaurin had 100 yards and 2 touchdowns, John Brown had 83 yards and a touchdown, Amari Cooper had 88 yards and 2 touchdowns and Marquise Brown had 147 yards and 2 touchdowns. This could be the breakout week that we have all been waiting for from Odell Beckham.

Recent Game Summaries
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.
