25-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Cleveland Browns
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Landry is short, slow and inefficient. He runs only short routes and has only seven catches of 40-plus yards in his 570-target career. Over the last two years, Landry has hauled in 22 catches of 20-plus yards - on 292 targets. Michael Thomas had that same number last year alone on 149 targets. And Thomas was only fourth in the league. Finally, Landry's 6.1 YPT ranked him 26th of the league's 27 100-target WR, barely ahead of Michael Crabtree. Yet somehow, you want Landry on your fantasy team, especially in PPR leagues. Landry led the league with 112 catches, and over the last three seasons is averaging 105. He has never missed a game in his career, and rarely even shows up on the injury report despite doing most of his work in crowded areas of the field and taking frequent hits from linebackers. At 5-11, 208, Landry is stout for his height, and quick even if his 4.77 40 time from the combine is glacial for anyone too small to play tight end. Landry finally broke through in the TD department last year with nine, thanks to 14 targets inside the 10-yard line (2nd). Of course, usage patterns with the Dolphins are moot because Landry was traded in March to Cleveland, where he'll compete with Josh Gordon, Duke Johnson and David Njoku for targets. Expect a reduced workload from last year's 161 looks (T-3rd), but don't be surprised if he becomes Tyrod Taylor's (or Baker Mayfield's) security blanket and ultimately leads the team in targets.

Shut down by Chargers
WRCleveland Browns
October 14, 2018
Landry corralled two of nine targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Chargers.
ANALYSIS
Landry was third on the team in targets behind David Njoku (12) and Antonio Callaway (10), which comes as a surprise considering Landry entered Week 6 tied for the fifth-most targets in the NFL. Landry and Baker Mayfield have yet to look in sync since the rookie quarterback took the starting job. The 25-year-old receiver has 11 catches on 29 targets for 114 yards over the last three games, and just hasn't looked like the same PPR monster he's often been in the past. He'll look to get back on track against a struggling Buccaneers secondary next week.

2014
Landry had his best year as a pro in 2016, setting career highs -- by a mile -- in YPC (12.1) and YPT (8.7). For a possession receiver who doesn't run many downfield routes, it was an especially efficient performance. Put differently, Landry had only 21 fewer receiving yards than in 2015, despite seeing 35 fewer targets. At 5-11, 206 and with 4.60 speed, Landry's never going to be the team's big-play threat -- his 16 catches of 20 plus and three for 40 or more probably represent his ceiling. And his red-zone targets dropped off a cliff (from 23 in 2015 to only nine last year), though Landry caught the same meager number of TDs (four) both years. Landry makes his living with good hands, strong route running, toughness, competitiveness and reliability. He'll catch anything in the short and intermediate areas of the field and rack up high catch totals as Jay Cutler's likely top target. DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills have the speed and athletic ability to strike for big plays, while Parker and newly-signed tight end Julius Thomas should see most of the looks near the goal line. Nonetheless, Landry's floor, especially in PPR, is high even if his days of getting 166 targets are probably over given the talent around him. Landry is also durable -- he has yet to miss a game in his three seasons (409 targets) in the league.
Being small and slow doesn't prevent one from having fantasy value when he sees 166 targets. At 5-11, 202, and having run a 4.6 40 at the NFL Combine, Landry is one of the least impressive athletes at the position, but he makes up for it with crisp route-running, sure hands, above-average quickness and opportunity disproportionate to his skills. Landry managed 10.5 YPC and 7.0 YPT, passable for a possession receiver, but nothing special. And he scored only four TDs, despite getting 23 red-zone targets (5th) and 14 targets inside the 10 (T-2nd). If you can't get into the end zone on heavy volume from in close and rarely make big plays – 10 catches of 20-plus yards and three of 40-plus on 166 targets – scoring touchdowns is not a big part of your game. On the bright side, Landry's a PPR machine (110 catches), and he chipped in with 113 rushing yards, a rushing score and a punt return for a TD. In 2016, we suspect DeVante Parker's role will grow significantly. While it's likely to cost Landry some targets and catches, it could boost his efficiency, especially if new head coach Adam Gase is able to help Ryan Tannehill take the next step.
Yet another productive member of last year's historic rookie receiver class, Landry emerged as the Dolphins most reliable pass catcher and led the team in receptions, despite not once seeing double-digit targets until Week 9. During the season's final eight games, however, Landry caught 54 of 72 targets for 457 yards and three scores, numbers that prorate to something approaching Julian Edelman's line over a full season. At 5-11, 202, and running only a 4.6 40, Landry's strictly a possession receiver (6.8 YPT, 33rd among the league's 41 100-target WR), but he's sure-handed, runs excellent routes and is tough enough to operate in the middle of the field. While the Dolphins parted ways with Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson and Charles Clay this offseason, they brought in Kenny Stills to stretch the field, veteran Greg Jennings for three-WR sets and tight end Jordan Cameron to work the seam and red zone. They also used the 14th overall pick on DeVante Parker, so if anything, the Dolphins receiving corps has as much depth as last year, only with better quality players. Still, Landry's role as a short pass catcher is safe, and he should be especially useful in PPR formats.
Known for his excellent hands, toughness, route running and blocking, the 63rd overall pick in the 2014 draft will likely compete with Brandon Gibson and perhaps Rishard Matthews for the Dolphins' No. 3 receiver role behind starters Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.
