2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): The Ravens took Landry away from Tannehill, leading to his shortest game (two catches for five yards on five targets) in his NFL career. His lack of success came one week after his best game (13/165/1) in 2015. He has two 100-yard receiving games with six TDs, while averaging 9.8 targets per game. The Giants allow the 5th-most Fantasy points to WRs, with two teams scoring over 50 Fantasy points. WRs only have 11 TDs vs. them, with five of those TDs coming against the Saints. Landry will draw the weakest CB (Trevin Wade) on many plays. Excellent chance at solid catches, but he needs a TD to be a winning option.
Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Landry finally had a "game" in 2015. He had a season high in catches (13), yards (169), and targets (16). His success was created by game score. On the year he has two 100-yard receiving games and six TDs, while averaging 10.2 targets per game. In two of his last four games, Landry has double-digit catches. The Ravens allow the 4th-most Fantasy points to WRs (18 TDs). CB Lardarius Webb is the Ravens' CB who sees most of the action in the slot. He grades as just above league average. I like Landry's upside and he seems to be moving in the right direction.
UPDATE (11/12): Although he leaves something to be desired in terms of yardage and touchdowns, PPR owners should have a fine appreciation for Jarvis Landry's talents. He's on pace for a 100-catch, 1,000-yard season. With only two TDs, he'll need to find a way to get into the end zone more frequently to flirt with WR1 success.
Landry caught just 25 passes for 255 yards and one touchdown during the first half of his rookie season and he saw limited snaps. Jarvis' value grew dramatically over the last nine games and he became Tannehill's safety value. Landry had at least five catches in each of those games and finished six contests with nine targets or more. All told, he recorded 59 receptions on 78 targets for 503 yards and four TDs in just his last nine games. That breaks down to 6.6 catches for 56 yards, 0.4 touchdowns and 8.7 targets per game. Over a full season, Jarvis would have been on pace for a more than 100 catches, more than 900 yards and seven TDs. His catch rate was 75 percent, although he averaged only 9 yards per catch. The change in WR personnel in Miami should lead to Landry expanding his routes to where his catches will have more length. During his 2013 season at LSU, he averaged 15.5 yards per catch. In 2015, Jarvis should have an opportunity similar to that of a Julian Edelman, which makes him a solid WR2 in SCOUT Fantasy leagues. He'll offer more consistency than explosiveness, which is helpful in head-to-head matches.

|4.11||GridironExperts-Jody Smith - My Mistake. Although I like Landry just fine in a PPR, I was hoping for better options at this point. Still, Landry is a fine WR2 in a PPR and should exceed 90 grabs. (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 9:12:27 p.m. ET 2015)|
