Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones ranked fourth among rookie wide receivers with 1.83 receiving yards per route run in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Peoples-Jones emerged late in the season after WR Odell Beckham Jr. was lost to injury. He could take on an increased role if WR Rashard Higgins is allowed to leave via free agency but seems likely to be the third or fourth option in the passing game next season behind Beckham, WR Jarvis Landry and TE Austin Hooper.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones (concussion) cleared the league's concussion protocols Friday, Jan. 8, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Wild Card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Peoples-Jones came on a bit at the end of the regular season and will likely see a few more snaps than usual as a result of KhaDarel Hodge being unable to play. However, he will probably be used in a field-stretching role in a difficult matchup with Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins absorbing the bulk of short and intermediate routes.

Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones pulled in all three of his targets for 55 yards in Week 15 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Peoples-Jones lasted until the sixth round of this spring's draft in large part because he was considered a supremely talented player who underachieved at Michigan. It took an injury to Odell Beckham Jr. and some time this season for him to get his break, but he's getting a chance to show off his athleticism now and proving he might have a future in the league. He's still firmly behind Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins on the depth chart, but he's a player dynasty owners will want to keep an eye on moving forward.

Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones registered three receptions for 74 yards on five targets and he also had a catch on a two-point conversion in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins have stepped up since Odell Beckham Jr. went down, emerging as useful fantasy options in deeper leagues and as cheap DFS options. The Browns are back at it in Week 15 against the New York Giants.

Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones ended up with two receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans, highlighted by a 75-yard second quarter score.
Huddle Up: Peoples-Jones has shown some big-play ability in the past, but despite the long touchdown he doesn't do enough regularly to warrant fantasy consideration in most leagues heading into Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones registered three receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Peoples-Jones, the team's sixth-round pick out of Michigan, might see a larger role as Odell Beckham Jr. checked out early with what the team feels might be a serious knee injury. Take a wait-and-see approach with DPJ, as he still might only be the No. 3 wideout in Cleveland behind Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins.
