Donovan Peoples-Jones
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Browns took Peoples-Jones in the sixth round of this April's NFL Draft, 187th overall. As a rookie, he could be an immediate contributor on special teams, but down the road, the 6-2, 212-pounder has the size and athleticism to emerge as an outside target who can go up and get the ball. At the combine, Peoples-Jones recorded a 4.48 40, as well as an excellent mark (44.5 inches) in the vertical leap category. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry remain the Brown' clear-cut top two wide receivers, but beyond that duo, the pecking order is not set in stone, with Rashard Higgins currently penciled in as the team's WR3. As a result, Peoples-Jones does have an opportunity to climb up Cleveland's depth chart as the 2020 season rolls along. Read Past Outlooks

Serves as clear third WR
WRCleveland Browns
January 18, 2021
Peoples-Jones caught his lone target for 23 yards over 46 snaps in Sunday's 22-17 playoff loss to the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
Even with the return of KhaDarel Hodge, who played eight snaps, Peoples-Jones was the clear third wideout behind Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins. That's telling as the Browns head into the offseason. The rookie out of Michigan was on the inactive list the first three games of 2020 but eventually earned a greater role when given an opportunity to play. Initially, he was used as the primary returner and fill-in on offense, then gained the confidence of the coaching staff and replaced Hodge. Peoples-Jones finished the regular season with 14 catches, 20 targets, 304 yards and two touchdowns. With Hodge becoming a restricted free agent and Higgins set to be unrestricted in the coming months, Peoples-Jones is poised to be the full-time No. 3 behind Landry and Odell Beckham (knee) when 2021 kicks off.
