Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) was not elevated to the active roster on Saturday and won't play against the Cardinals tomorrow. Landry got back on the practice field this week and seems likely to return for Week 7's game vs. the Broncos. Rashard Higgins and Donovan Peoples-Jones will continue to serve as Cleveland's #2 and #3 WRs tomorrow.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that WR Odell Beckham Jr. will not play Sunday against the Texans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Beckham missed Week 1 as well, despite reported optimism leading up to game day. We'll see about his participation in Week 3 practices.

Browns WR Odell Beckham (knee) is INACTIVE for today’s game against the Chiefs. It’s a major surprise after Beckham trended in a positive direction throughout August. We assume he’ll debut next week, but we’ll see. Beckham’s absence today should move WR Donovan Peoples-Jones into the starting lineup. WR Jarvis Landry and TE Austin Hooper also get target boosts.

According to Zac Jackson of The Athletic, Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones is "absolutely lighting up training camp." The 2nd-year wideout is reportedly impressing with his size, speed and hands, and showing a good connection with QB Baker Mayfield. This unpadded portion of workouts is ideal for WRs to stand out, of course, but DPJ could be winning the #3 job. He's competing primarily with Rashard Higgins, who returned on a 1-year deal in free agency. We certainly liked the athletic upside on Peoples-Jones, who arrived as a 6th-round pick despite a stellar Combine workout. He's at least worth hanging onto in dynasty leagues where possible. Another injury to Odell Beckham or Jarvis Landry this year would present intriguing opportunity.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (concussion) is active for tonight's game against the Steelers.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers. He was able to practice on Friday after missing the previous 2 days but still needs clearance to play this weekend. Cleveland is already expected to be without WR KhaDarel Hodge (COVID) vs. Pittsburgh.

Browns LG Joel Bitonio and WR KhaDarel Hodge have tested positive for COVID and are out for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. Bitonio, one of the best Gs in the league, is the big loss. Hodge's absence locks Donovan Peoples-Jones in as Cleveland's #3 WR for this one. HC Kevin Stefanski also has COVID and won't be available for the Steelers game. The Browns offense is in an extremely tough spot.

Browns WRs Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, KhaDarel Hodge and Donovan Peoples-Jones have been activated from the COVID list. Barring a positive test, they'll all be back for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers.

Browns WRs Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge are eligible to be activated from the COVID list on Thursday if they continue to test negative, HC Kevin Stefanski said. So all 4 guys should be back for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Browns WRs Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge have been placed on the COVID list as high-risk close contacts and are out for Sunday's game against the Jets. Those are Cleveland's top 4 WRs. Marvin Hall is the only other WR on the active roster. Ja'Marcus Bradley and Derrick Willies are on the practice squad. We wouldn't mess with that situation in Week 16 fantasy lineups. TEs Austin Hooper, Harrison Bryant and David Njoku should be busy tomorrow. Baker Mayfield, meanwhile, goes from a solid QB1 play to a shaky QB2. Expect a run-heavy game plan from Cleveland.

Update: Bradley and Willies have been promoted from the practice squad.

The Browns have re-signed WR Rashard Higgins to a 1-year deal. His 2019 season was derailed by a knee injury, but Higgins went for 572 yards and 4 TDs on 39 catches in 2018. Consider him the early favorite for Cleveland's #3 WR job this year -- with Taywan Taylor, Damion Ratley, KhaDarel Hodge and rookie Donovan Peoples-Jones as the competition.

The Browns selected Michigan WR Donovan Peoples-Jones in the 6th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. DPJ was a major disappointment for Big Blue. The 5-star recruit totaled just 103 catches, 1,327 yards and 14 TDs across 3 years on campus. In his defense, he dealt with crappy QB play. Michigan ranked 111th, 80th and 50th in passing yards per game the last 3 seasons. Peoples-Jones turned heads with his Combine performance: a 4.48-second 40 time and 44.5-inch vertical at 6’2 and 212 pounds. He earned a 99th percentile SPARQ score. And you see flashes of that athleticism on tape. Peoples-Jones waited a long time to hear his name called, though, and will have to battle for #3 WR duties in Cleveland behind Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry. He’s just a deep dynasty stash.
