Jarvis Landry or Jerry Jeudy?
Jerry Jeudy was one of the hottest fantasy names at wide receiver going into the season. He was arguably a top-three rookie wide receiver on most fantasy players’ draft board, but he didn’t quite live up to the hype. On the other hand, Jarvis Landry had quite the season and really outplayed Jeudy for much of the stretch.
To be fair, Jeudy did play one game essentially without a quarterback when the Broncos were forced to pluck a former quarterback turned wide receiver from the practice squad due to a potential COVID-19 situation. However, it’s unlikely that he catches up with Landry, who has 67 catches for 789 yards. Landry could, in fact, end up with 80 catches and 1,000 yards again this season. It’s remarkable to see how he’s been able to step up for the Browns after the Odell Beckham Jr. injury, in what will likely be remembered as his coming out party.
Nonetheless, it’s been a decent rookie campaign for Jeudy, but he’ll likely finish at the bottom amongst the other top wide receivers in fantasy. Whereas prior to the season, he was probably projected to finish higher up the board. It may turn out that Jeudy is the type of player you just have to be a bit patient with, particularly if there is a change at the quarterback position for Denver heading into next season. Jeudy still has a ton of talent, and perhaps with the right quarterback partnership, he can reach his full potential.
