What to do with Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry in Week 5 fantasy football

We go over Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Browns Week 5 matchup against the Colts

Is Odell Beckham Jr in a good position for a big week 5?

The Cleveland Browns are coming off a huge win last week against the Cowboys, a game that saw season-high fantasy numbers for both of their top two receivers. Can they repeat those performances this week against a much tougher Colts defense?

Fantasy Football analysis: Browns WRs Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry

Beckham had a huge day, catching five passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns. He added another rushing score, carrying the ball twice for 73 yards. He’s clearly established himself as the Browns’ No. 1 option in the passing game, and despite some up and down performances (part of the issue is that this offense is VERY dedicated to running the ball first and foremost) he’s typically a must start option.

Landry’s been a disappointment for the most part this season. His best day as a receiver was a 61-yard outing in Week 1, and he still hasn’t found the end zone. Where he got his points last week was on a 37-yard touchdown pass to Beckham. He’s best left on the bench for this game.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Odell Beckham. Sit Jarvis Landry.
