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.

Deshaun Watson, QB CLE

Saints-Browns weather update

The forecast for today's Saints-Browns game calls for temperatures in the single digits with sustained winds of 20-25 mph and gusts of 40+. The wind chill is well below zero. They're brutal conditions that will significantly limit the passing and kicking games. Check out our projections for all the Saints and Browns players.

View all Deshaun Watson Shark Bites »

Browns QB Deshaun Watson didn't show much progress in his 3rd game back. He threw for just 161 yards and 1 TD in Saturday's win over the Ravens. He found WR Donovan Peoples-Jones from 3 yards out for the team's lone TD. WR Amari Cooper and TE David Njoku tied for the target lead (6). Cooper caught 4 balls for 58 yards. Njoku snagged 3 for just 28 yards. Week 16 brings a Saints defense that ranks 12th on the year in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA, compared with 21st against the run. Watson doesn't look like a fantasy starter for that week or a Week 17 trip to Washington.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones drew a season-high 12 targets in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, leading the team in that category, receptions (8) and receiving yards (114). He led Amari Cooper by 5 pass routes in a game Cooper entered questionable with a hip issue. Cooper did check in 3rd on the team with 7 targets but caught only 2 (for 42 yards). His usage bodes well for his Week 15 role. TE David Njoku finished between the wideouts with 9 targets, catching 7 balls for 59 yards and the team's lone TD.

Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones led the team in receiving yards Sunday, but it only took 44 of them to do so. DPJ did that on 3 catches, among 3 targets. That was good enough to rank 2nd on the team. Only WR Amari Cooper drew more targets (9) or caught more passes (4). Peoples-Jones made his day with a 76-yard punt return for a TD, though, saving his fantasy line in any league that credits players for return TDs.

Dynasty Write-up
DPJ excelled in 2022 — even before QB Deshaun Watson returned from suspension. The Michigan product set career highs in catches and yards. He profiles as a long-term WR2 for Cleveland and a potential WR3 alongside Watson.
