What You Need to Know:

  • Among 103 WRs with 40+ targets last year, Peoples-Jones ranked 4th in average depth of target, according to Pro Football Focus. He trailed only Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton in that category.
  • Despite ranking 2nd in that group in yards per reception (17.6), Peoples-Jones checked in just 59th in yards per route run.
  • He drew a target on just 14.1% of his routes, 89th among all 234 targeted WRs.
  • DPJ tied Austin Hooper for the team lead in red-zone targets, seeing 27.6% of his total looks in that range.
  • Peoples-Jones appears to be in line to start opposite Amari Cooper this season, with Anthony Schwartz and David Bell vying for slot duties.
  • The Browns have run at the 4th and 7th highest rates in the league in 2 seasons under Stefanski. Heavy financial investments into Cooper, Deshaun Watson and even TE David Njoku this offseason could signal a further lean toward the pass, though.
  • DPJ tested out as a superior athlete in 2020, following a disappointing career at Michigan and ahead of entering the NFL as just a 6th-round pick.
  • Per Browns insider Scott Petrak, “the front office and coaching staff are big believers” in WR Donovan Peoples-Jones.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

DPJ is a physically gifted 6’2, 212-pound WR. He garnered high-value targets last season: deep balls and red-zone looks. But he also had a big volume issue in an offense that lacked passing volume. Perhaps that shifts further in favor of the passing game in 2022, though the uncertainty surrounding Deshaun Watson clouds that aspect. Ultimately, Peoples-Jones looks nice as a late best-ball pick, where we can reap the spike weeks without deciding to start him. He’s not likely to be nearly so attractive when you’re setting a weekly lineup – especially in full-PPR formats.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) is expected to play vs. the Bengals today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport also confirms that DPJ is expected to replace WR Odell Beckham in the starting lineup. We'd try not to use Peoples-Jones in Week 9 fantasy lineups, but he's worth rostering in fantasy leagues of 12+ teams.
