2021 Fantasy Outlook
Peoples-Jones was a healthy scratch early in the 2020 season but was forced into a larger role after Odell Beckham sustained a season-ending knee injury Week 7. He brought an explosive element to the Browns offense and averaged 21.7 yards per catch. The vertical element is something that was missing after Beckham's injury until Peoples-Jones leap-frogged KhaDarel Hodge on the team's depth chart. With a healthy Beckham back in the mix, Peoples-Jones likely drops to the fourth on the depth chart and will compete for slotting with Hodge, Rashard Higgins, and rookie third-round draft pick Anthony Schwartz.

Three grabs in finale

Peoples-Jones brought in three of four targets for 38 yards in the Browns' 21-16 win over the Bengals on Sunday. He also committed a fumble that was recovered by Cleveland and returned four punts for 20 yards.
ANALYSIS
The promising speedster checked in second in receptions, receiving yards and targets to Jarvis Landry to finish off the season in relatively quiet fashion. Peoples-Jones did take a step forward in his development in 2021, however, finishing with a 34-597-3 line across 13 games. With Odell Beckham in Los Angeles and Landry a 29-year-old possession receiver, the opportunity appears to be there for Peoples-Jones to step up and assert himself as a consistent downfield threat next season.

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.
