Jarvis Landry Fantasy Football News 2018

Browns HC Hue Jackson said Friday that he's giving OC Todd Haley "total autonomy" of the offense. He's "one of the best in the business," Jackson added of Haley. Consider this good news for all of Cleveland's skill-position guys. The Browns have ranked 31st and 32nd in points scored under Jackson the past 2 seasons. Haley arrives with 11 years of experience as a HC or OC. Eight of his squads have finished in the top half of the league in total points, including 6 top-10 finishes.

The Browns and WR Jarvis Landry have agreed to a 5-year, $75.5 million extension with $47 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That $15.1 million per year makes Landry the league's 5th highest paid WR in terms of average annual salary. It's a massive commitment to a guy the Dolphins clearly didn't value nearly as much. Landry is still unlikely to see the 142.5 targets per season he averaged in Miami, though. He's a bit overvalued at his current ADP on WR20 in early best-ball drafts.

The Dolphins have traded WR Jarvis Landry to the Browns in exchange for a 2018 pick and a 2019 pick. No word on the exact compensation, but ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that neither pick is a 1st- or 2nd-rounder. Schefter also reports that Landry and the Browns are expected to agree to a new long-term deal. Landry's 400 catches through his first 4 seasons are the most in NFL history. He's also averaged just 10.1 yards per catch, though, and totaled only 22 TDs. If WR Josh Gordon stays clean, Landry is unlikely to see the 142.5 targets he averaged in Miami. And we'll see who's chucking him the rock. But for now, the move to Cleveland is a downgrade for Landry's fantasy stock.

Update: Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Cleveland is sending a 2018 fourth-round pick and a 2019 seventh-rounder to the Dolphins.

The Dolphins have placed the franchise tag on WR Jarvis Landry. He'll make about $16 million in 2018 if the 2 sides are unable to work out a long-term deal before the July 16 deadline. Miami has been seemingly reluctant to commit to Landry, and there's already been a report from Pro Football Talk that the team might still be looking to trade him. We'll see where this goes. Staying in Miami another year certainly wouldn't be bad for Landry's fantasy value. He's averaged 100 catches over the past 4 seasons, including a career-high 112 last year.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) is active for today’s game against the Chargers. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said this morning that Landry will have “no limitations.” He’s safe to get into fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (knee) is expected to play against the Chargers today. Landry was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice with swelling in his knee. But Rapoport adds that Landry will have "no limitations" today. He's safe to get into fantasy lineups.

The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley hears that the Dolphins are "optimistic" that WR Jarvis Landry (knee) will play against the Chargers this weekend. Landry was limited in practice after experiencing some swelling in his knee on Friday. We'll continue looking for updates on his status. Dolphins-Chargers doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry was added to Friday’s injury report as limited with a knee. He’s listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chargers. That’s all the info we have right now. We'll update Landry's status when we learn more.

The NFL has moved the Bucs-Dolphins game originally scheduled for this Sunday to Week 11. Both teams were scheduled to have a bye that week but will now play 16 straight weeks from Week 2 to 17. We just removed all Bucs and Dolphins from the Week 1 Rankings. The winner here is RB Doug Martin, whose 3-game suspension will now cost him a game against the tough Giants run defense rather than the Dolphins.

Sunday's opener between the Bucs and Dolphins is in limbo as Hurricane Irma bears down on Florida. The league held a conference call this morning to discuss the situation, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, but no decision was made. The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud hears that the Bucs are expecting the game to be moved to Week 11, when both teams currently have a bye week. The other option is to move the game elsewhere. We're expecting to have clarity on the situation within the next 24 hours.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is currently under investigation for battery. The alleged incident involved his girlfriend and occurred back in March. The victim has reportedly absolved Landry of any violence, but the police have continued to look into it. No charges have been filed at this time. Even if they aren't, though, the NFL could decide to take action. Stay tuned.

The Dolphins have coaxed QB Jay Cutler out of retirement with a 1-year, $10 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The move is a sure sign that the team has elected to have QB Ryan Tannehill undergo season-ending surgery on his ACL. Cutler's 2016 season ended with a torn labrum, and he finished with a 59.1% completion rate, 4 TDs and 5 INTs in 5 appearances. The year prior, though, he connected on 64.4% of his attempts with 21 TDs and 11 INTs. That season came under OC Adam Gase, who is now HC of the Dolphins. That experience in the offense will help Cutler get ready with Week 1 just 5 weeks away. Cutler will be piloting a run-heavy offense and is no more than a lower-end QB2 in fantasy. But he'll keep this offense on schedule. We're not moving any Miami skill-position players down the rankings.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill re-injured his left knee on a non-contact play in Thursday's training-camp practice. That's the knee in which he partially tore his ACL last December. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that the team is "concerned" about Tannehill's injury. We should learn more over the next 24 hours. Tannehill is no more than a QB2 in fantasy football, but his loss would hurt WRs Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Matt Moore is Miami's backup.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry posted a 4-103 line on 6 targets vs. Arizona. Sunday marked Landry’s 3rd 100-yard outing of 2016 but his 1st since Week 3. 71 of his yards came on a quick pass where he broke a pair of tackles and nearly found the end zone. Landry will remain a fantasy starter for remaining matchups at the Jets and Bills. But he likely lost Ryan Tannehill to a season-ending knee injury, adding some volatility to the slot man’s outlook.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (back) "unlikely" to play against the Ravens today. That's not a surprise after he was unable to practice all week. Parker's absence should theoretically mean more targets for WR Jarvis Landry. Kenny Stills will step in as Miami's #2 WR.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Chargers. He was held out of Thursday’s practice but returned to a limited workout on Friday. Landry is fine to get into fantasy lineups if you've been waiting on him.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chargers. He was held out of Thursday’s practice but returned to a limited workout on Friday. Dolphins-Chargers doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET. We’ll look for an update on Landry Sunday morning.

Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is "day to day" with a shoulder injury, per insider Armando Salguero. Landry reportedly "didn't feel right" after Wednesday's practice and was held out on Thursday. His participation (or lack thereof) on Friday will be key. Check back then for an update.

"I have to do a better job of getting Jarvis [Landry the ball," Dolphins HC Adam Gase said Monday. Landry's fantasy owners agree. He's averaged just 6.5 targets over the last 4 games after averaging 11.3 in his first 4. It's no coincidence that the dip coincides with RB Jay Ajayi's emergence. QB Ryan Tannehill has averaged only 25.8 pass attempts over the last 4 games. Landry's target share might grow in Week 10 and beyond, but it's tough to see him matching last year's production in Miami's new run-heavy offense.

The forecast for today's Steelers-Dolphins game calls for a 55% chance of rain with winds of 14-16 mph. Those obviously aren't ideal conditions for the passing games, but it's not enough to impact our projections.
