Landry caught seven of 10 targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC divisional round.
Analysis: Landry led the Browns in targets and catches but finished fourth in receiving yards. He scored from four yards out in the third quarter to spark a comeback attempt that ultimately came up five points short, but Landry otherwise failed to get any separation downfield, gaining no more than seven yards on any of his seven catches. He'll continue to be a key part of Cleveland's passing game next season after totaling 72 catches for 840 yards in 2020 despite playing through a broken rib for part of the season.

Landry reeled in five of eight targets for 92 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 48-37 wild-card win against the Steelers.
Analysis: Landry has been magnetized to the end zone of late, with all four of his receiving scores on the season coming over his past six outings. He tore off a 40-yard catch-and-run TD on Cleveland's third play from scrimmage, but from there, he was held to just one more reception for four yards until the fourth quarter. With Pittsburgh mounting significant momentum at the start of the final frame, Landry delivered a clutch 17-yard third-down reception, helping set up Nick Chubb for a tide-swinging 40-yard TD catch three plays later. His receiving output of 92 yards constitutes Landry's second-highest total of the season, as the five-time Pro Bowler readies for a divisional-round matchup against the Chiefs. Kansas City emerges from its bye with 100-yard receiving performances conceded in back-to-back games.

Landry recorded five receptions in six targets for 51 yards in Week 17 against the Steelers. He added one rush for three yards and a touchdown.
Analysis: Landry led the team in targets and receptions, but was limited to short areas of the field. Despite the unremarkable showing in the box score, Landry tallied the game-clinching touchdown at the beginning of the fourth quarter on a three-yard run. Statistically speaking, Landry posted his worst season as a Brown, though he did surpass 800 receiving yards and paired that with six total touchdowns. Landry's season will continue as the Browns head to the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
Jan 3, 2021 3:23 PM EST
Landry has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Analysis: As were Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge. As a result, the Browns will approach Sunday's must-win contest against the Steelers with their top wide receivers available once again. The Browns won't practice Thursday, but the team hopes to get the four returning pass catchers some practice reps Friday. Now that he's back in the fold, Landry should see his normal allotment of work in Week 17, given that he landed on the COVID list (and thus missed Week 16 action) as high-risk close contact.
Dec 31, 2020 1:30 PM EST
Landry is slated to come off the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The same applies to Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge, with the moves on track to become official later Thursday. With that, the Browns are set approach Sunday's must-win season finale against the Steelers with their top wide receivers -- who were sidelined last weekend -- available for Week 17 action, barring any unexpected developments.
Dec 31, 2020 8:40 AM EST
The Browns are targeting Thursday for the return of Landry and the rest of the receivers placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge continued to test negative Monday. They must remain negative for five days, making Thursday the earliest day they can return.
Dec 29, 2020 3:14 AM EST
The Browns placed Landry (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, ruling him our for Sunday's road game against the Jets.
Analysis: In addition to Landry, fellow wide receivers Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge were deemed high-risk close contacts and are unable to play Week 16. With just one WR (Marvin Hall) remaining on the active roster, Cleveland elevated Ja'Marcus Bradley and Derrick Willies from the practice squad.
Dec 26, 2020 3:13 PM EST
Landry (undisclosed) has been deemed a high-risk close contact and may not be available Sunday against the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: The same can be said for Rashard Higgins and Donavan Peoples-Jones. The Browns haven't placed any of the trio on the reserve/COVID-19 list yet, but a decision on each player's availability may be imminent. If all three are unable to play Sunday, Cleveland will be down to two healthy wide receivers (KhaDarel Hodge and Marvin Hall) on the active roster.
Dec 26, 2020 2:51 PM EST
Landry had seven receptions (eight targets) for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Giants.
Analysis: Landry continued his recent hot streak, scoring his third touchdown over the last four weeks while averaging 7.3 receptions and 79.5 receiving yards over that span. It didn't hurt that the Giants were without shutdown corner, James Bradberry (reserve/COVID-19), for this contest, but even he may not have been able to slow down the Browns' red-hot passing attack. The veteran wideout is finally looking like a reliable fantasy asset again after posting some disappointing numbers earlier this season, both before and after Odell Beckham went down to injury. Look for Baker Mayfield to continue dialing up his favorite target in another soft matchup against the Jets on Sunday.
Dec 20, 2020 9:50 PM EST
Landry caught six of nine targets for 52 yards in Monday night's 47-42 loss to the Ravens. He also completed a pass for 12 yards.
Analysis: Landry's first gain came via his arm, as he connected with Nick Chubb on a throw-back play during Cleveland's opening drive. The wideout then saw his usual involvement over the course of Monday's meeting, ultimately tying for the Browns' lead in receptions. Although he couldn't extend his touchdown streak to three games, instead watching fellow wideout Rashard Higgins score, Landry remains his team's top pass-catching option ahead of Week 15's matchup against the Giants.
Dec 14, 2020 10:07 PM EST
Landry recorded eight receptions on 10 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Titans.
Analysis: Landry found the end zone for the second consecutive game on a two-yard reception late in the first quarter. He also served as the short-yardage option for Baker Mayfield, and has now vacuumed up 21 targets across his last two contests. Landry was still limited by his lack of deep looks, as he averaged only 6.2 yards per target with his longest reception of the day going for 13 yards. He should continue to see plenty of targets in pivotal AFC North matchup in Week 14 against the Baltimore.
Dec 6, 2020 3:04 PM EST
Landry recorded eight receptions on 11 targets for 143 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Jaguars.
Analysis: Landry topped 100 yards for the first time this season, thanks in part to commanding 11 targets on 29 total pass attempts by Baker Mayfield. He was efficient with the opportunity as well, averaging 13 yards per target and logging five receptions of at least 19 yards. Landry also managed his first touchdown of the season, which came on a five-yard catch in the opening quarter. He'll look to build on the performance in a Week 13 matchup against the Titans.
Nov 29, 2020 3:46 PM EST
Landry caught both his targets for 23 yards and carried once for three additional yards during Sunday's 22-17 win over the Eagles.
Analysis: Landry's usage was limited as the Browns threw the ball just 22 times on the day due to poor weather, and he finished with another disappointing performance as a result. He has surpassed 50 receiving yards just once in his last five outings and is on pace to finish well shy of 1,000 yards for the season. Landry could bounce back against a poor Jaguars defense next Sunday, but he's not guaranteed a healthy allotment of targets in a game his team could dominate on the ground.
Nov 22, 2020 3:45 PM EST
Landry caught three of five targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 10-7 win over Houston.
Analysis: Landry led the Browns in targets but didn't get much going as Baker Mayfield threw for just 132 yards. This was actually Mayfield's second-highest passing yardage total in the last four games, so Landry's ceiling remains capped by the run-heavy nature of Cleveland's offense. Still, the Browns will likely scheme the ball into Landry's hands -- be it as a receiver downfield or as a passer/runner on gadget plays -- against the Eagles in Week 11.
Nov 15, 2020 2:32 PM EST
Landry caught four of his 11 targets for 52 receiving yards during Sunday's 16-6 loss to the Raiders.
Analysis: Baker Mayfield was clearly trying to feed the ball to his five-time Pro Bowl wideout, as Landry had eight more targets and greater than double the receiving production of the No. 2 option, Harrison Bryant. Those sizeable portions came on an inefficient passing day for Cleveland, as Mayfield completed less than half of his pass attempts while managing fewer than 125 yards via the air. Landry has garnered 6.3 targets per game for the Browns, though he remains without a touchdown heading into the team's Week 9 bye.
Nov 1, 2020 4:00 PM EST
Landry (ribs/hip) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Raiders after logging a full practice Friday, Scott Petrak of The Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Analysis: Landry has been playing through a rib injury that he sustained in Week 5, but it's no surprise that he'll continue to tough it out Sunday, considering that he hasn't missed a regular-season game since entering the NFL in 2014. His profile in the Cleveland passing offense is in line to increase going forward with the team's target leader Odell Beckham having suffered a season-ending knee injury. In that context, Landry should continue to see plenty of volume in the coming weeks, with Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones, KhaDarel Hodge and Taywan Taylor all candidates to see added work as the Browns look to fill the void created by Beckham's injury.
Oct 30, 2020 2:00 PM EST
Landry (ribs/hip) was limited in practice Wednesday, Jake Trotter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Landry's limited status to start the week isn't surprising considering he's playing through a broken rib, but the seven-year veteran hasn't missed a game in his career, so expect Landry to tough it out come Sunday against the Raiders. Despite limited practice reps, Landry should play a prominent role on game day with Odell Beckham (knee) done for the season.
Oct 28, 2020 1:28 PM EST
Landry caught five of six targets for 48 yards, rushed twice for four yards and completed a 19-yard pass in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals.
Analysis: Landry's 28-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter was the first completion for quarterback Baker Mayfield after five misses, and it started a streak of 21 consecutive Mayfield completions. The veteran wide receiver tied Rashard Higgins for the team lead in targets, and Landry also put his throwing ability on display with a 19-yard pass to Donovan Peoples-Jones in the fourth quarter. Fellow wideout Odell Beckham exited with a knee injury on the opening drive, leaving Landry as Mayfield's most established receiving option. If Beckham can't go against the Raiders in Week 8, Landry could have a chance to surpass his season high of nine targets, even considering the run-first nature of Cleveland's offense.
Oct 25, 2020 2:16 PM EST
Landry (hip/ribs) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: Landry created a stir earlier this week when he admitted that he's been playing through a broken rib since Oct. 11, but the injury won't keep him off the field. The wideout remained limited in practice throughout the week, which could be par for the course moving forward as the Browns look to limit the wear and tear on his body heading into gamedays. Coming off offseason hip surgery, Landry hasn't seemed to recapture top form just yet, as he's averaging four receptions for 53.1 yards per game through six contests.
Oct 23, 2020 12:05 PM EST
Landry (ribs/hip) remained limited at practice Thursday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Analysis: Landry's continued limitations at practice gained added context Thursday when the wideout revealed that he's been dealing with a broken rib that he suffered Oct. 11. That said, Landry hasn't missed a game durting his seven-year NFL career and that's almost assuredly not going to change this week, though he'll probably end up being officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
