Bottom Line

Peoples-Jones is a former sixth-round pick who began his career as a special teams contributor. He moved his way up the depth chart in 2022 and turned in a rock-solid season as the Browns’ No. 2 WR.

The team invested resources into their WR corps this offseason, making Peoples-Jones a riskier fantasy investment in 2023 than he was one year ago.

What We Learned Last Year
  • Peoples-Jones recorded an impressive mini-breakout campaign in 2022. He finished the season as the WR42 in PPR with 9.5 points per game average.
  • Though Peoples-Jones only posted one weekly finish within the top-12 of WRs last year, he was a WR3 or better in nine of 17 games.
    • The man was a fantasy flex machine for a good stretch of 2022. Between Week 5 and Week 11, Peoples-Jones recorded a seven-game streak of at least four catches and 50 receiving yards per game.
  • Peoples-Jones finished second on the Browns in targets (96), receptions (61), receiving yards (839), target share (18.9%), and air yards share (27.3%) in 2022.
  • As good as the third-year wideout was on the stat sheet, some underlying metrics don’t paint the prettiest picture. Among 53 WRs who logged 75+ targets in 2022, Peoples-Jones ranked:
    • 42nd in PFF receiving grade
    • 35th in yards per route run (1.46)
    • 42nd in contested catch rate (37.9%)
      • (down from 69.6% on 58 targets in 2021)
What to Expect in 2023
  • Peoples-Jones was solid last year but now faces stiffer competition on the depth chart with the offseason additions of former Jets WR Elijah Moore and 2023 3rd-round NFL draft pick Cedric Tillman.
  • As Draft Sharks analyst Jared Smola notes in Tillman’s prospect profile, he’s very similar to Peoples-Jones in size and archetype. This is notable because Peoples-Jones is entering the last year of his contract.
  • Generally, Peoples-Jones’ role is on shaky ground. But if he can hang on to the No. 2 WR job, he could still be a useful spot starter for fantasy squads.

Jameson Williams, WR DET

3:53pm EST 1/5/24

Jameson Williams out for Week 18

Lions WR Jameson Williams (ankle, illness) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. We’ll see if he can make it back for next week’s Wild Card game. Williams’ absence will free up some snaps for WRs Josh Reynolds, Kalif Raymond, and Donovan Peoples-Jones.

The Browns traded WR Donovan Peoples-Jones to the Lions in exchange for a sixth-round pick. Peoples-Jones turned in a promising 2022 season, catching 61 of 96 targets for 839 yards and three TDs. But he's been mostly invisible so far this year, totaling just eight receptions on 18 targets. He joins a Lions offense still searching for a consistent No. 2 WR behind Amon-Ra St. Brown. WR Josh Reynolds has been good in spurts this year, but WR Jameson Williams has continued to disappoint. We'll see what kind of role Peoples-Jones can carve out, but he's unlikely to emerge as a reliable fantasy option this season. The 24-year-old is set to hit free agency in March. The Browns, meanwhile, are left with WRs Marquise Goodwin, Cedric Tillman, and David Bell behind Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore.
