The Cleveland Browns host the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6, and hope for a better outcome against this NFC West opponent than last week. The San Francisco 49ers thumped the Browns on Monday Night Football, and the Browns offense was unable to get much of anything going — losing 31-3 in a game that saw Baker Mayfield complete only eight of 22 passes for 100 yards and two interceptions.
Jarvis Landry led the team with four receptions for 75 yards, while Odell Beckham Jr. was held to two receptions for 27 yards. No other wide receiver caught a pass the entire game.
This week, the Browns face a Seahawks team that ranks 19th in pass defense efficiency and have given up the 14th fewest fantasy points to wide receivers. Last week, Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp had nine receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown, while Robert Woods was held to five receptions for 48 yards. Brandin Cooks had one reception for 29 yards but suffered a concussion in the game.
Fantasy football analysis, Browns WRs Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry
Beckham remains a must-start, and Landry has moved into must-start status himself — and not just in PPR leagues. OBJ leads the team with 23 receptions, but Landry leads with 403 receiving yards. Both are strong starts against a decent but inconsistent Seahawks defense. Baker Mayfield has a ton of questions, but he’s got the pass-catching weapons if he can get on track. If Mayfield continues to struggle, we might need to reconsider. In the meantime, start both of them.
