Friday update: Landry is not on the Browns injury report and appears set to take on the Bengals. He becomes Baker Mayfield’s top target with Odell Beckham Jr. off the team.
Thursday update: Landry returned to practice on Thursday, per Nate Ulrich. This is a good sign for his availability this week.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry is listed as DNP but appears likely to be able to go this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals despite a knee injury.
Landry did not participate in Wednesday’s practice, but he did the same thing last week before returning on Thursday and was later removed from the final injury report, so this could just be regular in-season management for Landry.
In last week’s game, Landry caught 5 of 10 targets for 65 yards in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Baker Mayfield continues to look his way often.

Fantasy football implications
Assuming Landry will be healthy enough to play, he should be one of the main beneficiaries of the Odell Beckham situation as Landry should see an increase in targets. Landry has seen 18 targets over the last two games combined after missing three games with the injury to his knee. If Landry suits up, he can be used as a low-end wide receiver No. 3 with a high floor due to the expected volume of passes to be thrown his way.
