View WR Fantasy Rankings »

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.


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.

David Bell, WR CLE

8:07am EDT 6/6/22

Bell getting 1st-team reps

Browns WR David Bell got some reps with the 1st-team offense in OTAs, according to The Athletic's Zac Jackson. Amari Cooper is locked in as Cleveland's #1 WR, and it sounds like Bell, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz are competing for the next 3 spots on the depth chart. Bell has drawn positive reviews so far from both coaches and beat writers. Consider him the favorite for primary slot duties this season, making the rookie an intriguing late-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Browns beat writer Zac Jackson believes “the chances are high” that the team adds a veteran WR. No available player would impact Amari Cooper’s role. But we could see competition for the young guys behind him: Donovan Peoples-Jones, David Bell and Anthony Schwartz. Will Fuller, Julio Jones and T.Y. Hilton are some of the big-name WRs still available. Odell Beckham (ACL) is worth a mention, too, but Jackson doesn’t believe a reunion is likely.

Browns insider Tony Grossi believes “opportunity [is] knocking” for 3rd-year WR Donovan Peoples-Jones. Grossi notes that Will Fuller — connected to Cleveland long before today — could be an option down the road. But Peoples-Jones’ stock at least looks stable in the short-term, assuming free agent Jarvis Landry plays elsewhere. The Browns selected 2 WRs in the draft — David Bell in Round 3 and Michael Woods in Round 6 — but DPJ will enter camp as the favorite to start with Amari Cooper. The real key here is just how many games Deshaun Watson will miss due to suspension.

Browns QB Baker Mayfield, QB Case Keenum, WR Jarvis Landry and TE Austin Hooper will not be activated from the COVID list for tonight's game vs. the Raiders, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So QB Nick Mullens will get the start for Cleveland. His top 2 WRs figure to be Donovan Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins. David Njoku should top the TE depth chart. We'll see if TE Harrison Bryant (ankle) is able to play. Expect a run-heavy game plan featuring Nick Chubb from the Browns.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (groin) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Ravens. He only got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so DPJ figures to be operating at less than 100%. WR Rashard Higgins is a healthy scratch tonight.
