2021 Fantasy Outlook
Though the Browns went heavy on defense during the offseason talent acquisition phase, they used third-round draft capital on Schwartz, a speed merchant out of Auburn. Cleveland returns five wideouts that played significant roles in 2020, so Schwartz may not have an immediate impact. Still, down the road the team's coaching staff could find opportunities to use Schwartz's 4.25 speed if he can get stronger and gain more polis as a route-runner. Read Past Outlooks

Mistake not costly
WRCleveland Browns
September 20, 2021
Schwartz did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Texans.
ANALYSIS
Schwartz had an impressive NFL debut in Week 1, catching three balls for 69 yards as part of the fill-in crew for the injured Odell Beckham (knee), but an early mistake appeared to take him out of the plan Week 2. The rookie wideout failed to finish running a route, which led to a Justin Reid interception and an injury to quarterback Baker Mayfield's non-throwing shoulder after the QB had to tackle Reid. Mayfield didn't miss any plays -- his dislocated shoulder was popped back in, and he was ready for the next series -- but the turnover led to a Houston touchdown, forcing the Browns the come from behind. Schwartz played a similar number of snaps as he did the previous week, but Mayfield may have lost confidence in him following the interception.
