  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Goes For 16 Yards In Week 12

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught two of his four targets for 16 yards in a 23-17 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. Peoples-Jones' slow outing broke a streak of seven straight games with at least 50 receiving yards. The third-year wideout has been relatively consistent this season, despite Week 12's dud, and should see an increase in production with Deshaun Watson coming off an 11-game suspension. Peoples-Jones should remain in fantasy lineups as a solid flex option heading into a Week 13 matchup against the Houston Texans.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones A Solid Flex Vs. Bucs

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones finally scored his first touchdown of the season in a Week 11 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Peoples-Jones has ascended to every-week flex status in fantasy, having gone for at least 50 receiving yards in all but two of his contests. He will look to stay productive in Week 12 against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that is allowing the 15th-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts in 2022. Peoples-Jones can be trusted as a solid WR3/flex option heading into Week 12.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Scores TD In Week 11

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught five of his six targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in a 31-23 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 11. Peoples-Jones came into the game with zero touchdowns on the year but he finally snapped that streak with a two-yard touchdown catch with 19 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Despite the lack of touchdowns, Peoples-Jones has been a serviceable WR3 in fantasy for much of the season, having gone for at least 50 receiving yards in all but two of his 10 games. Peoples-Jones will look to find the end zone again in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones A Flex Option Vs. Bills In Week 11

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones has been on a hot streak in 2022, having gone for at least 50 receiving yards in seven of his nine contests. The only complaint would be that he has yet to score a touchdown for the Browns this season. Peoples-Jones will look to change that heading into a road matchup against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11. The Bills are allowing the 19th-most fantasy points per game to wideouts in 2022 and their pass defense ranks fifth in DVOA. The early weather reports call for several inches of snow in Buffalo over the weekend, so fantasy gamers need to be prepared to downgrade the entire Cleveland offense if it looks like the snow will hit during the game on Sunday. For now, treat Peoples-Jones as an upside WR3 heading into Week 11.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Leads Cleveland In Receiving In Week 10

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught five of his nine targets for 99 yards in his team's 39-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 10. Peoples-Jones was one of the few bright spots for the Browns in the loss, leading the team in all receiving categories in the blowout. Peoples-Jones is enjoying a breakout in 2022, having gone for at least 50 yards in seven of his nine games. He has yet to score a touchdown, however, which has caused him to fly under the radar a bit in fantasy. Peoples-Jones will be a solid flex heading into a Week 11 matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Finishes With 81 Yards In Week 8

Peoples-Jones finished as the second-leading receiver in the win over the Bengals on Monday night, behind only Amari Cooper. Peoples-Jones is having a solid season as the No. 2 wideout in Cleveland as he has gone for at least 50 receiving yards in six of his eight games in 2022. Settled in as a solid flex play in fantasy, Peoples-Jones will be on bye in Week 9 before a road matchup against the Miami Dolphins in Week 10.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones A Solid Flex In Week 8

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones is in the midst of a breakout season for his team in 2022. Through seven games, Peoples-Jones has 26 catches for 336 yards. The third-year wideout will look to keep it going at home against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8's Monday night game. The Bengals have been good against receivers in 2022, allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. That being said, Peoples-Jones has been involved enough in the Cleveland passing attack to trust as a solid flex option heading into Week 8.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Goes For 71 Yards In Week 7

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught all six of his targets for 71 yards and lost a fumble in a 23-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. Peoples-Jones wound up tying with David Njoku for second on the team in receiving, behind only Amari Cooper. His lost fumble came on Cleveland's final offensive play of the game as he was fighting for extra yards in the middle of the field. Peoples-Jones has become a trusted cog in the Cleveland passing attack, having gone for at least 71 yards in three of his past four games. He will be on the radar as a flex play against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones A Flex Option For Week 7

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones has been productive for his team of late, having caught at least four passes and going for at least 50 receiving yards in each of his past three contests. He lines up as a sneaky start in Week 7's road matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens have not been good at limiting enemy wideouts in 2022 as they are allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Peoples-Jones is not a must-start but he is on the radar as a boom/bust flex option in fantasy heading into Week 7.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Goes For 74 Yards In Week 6

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught four of his five targets for 74 yards in a 38-15 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 6. Peoples-Jones led the team in receiving, while also setting a season-high with his 74 yards through the air. The veteran wideout disappeared in two games this season but he has been productive otherwise, having racked up 195 receiving yards over his past three contests. Peoples-Jones will be on the flex radar in a plus matchup against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones has been productive over his past two games, combining to catch nine passes for 121 yards. He will look for his first touchdown of the season in Week 6's home matchup against the New England Patriots. New England has been decent against wideouts this season, allowing the 17th-most fantasy points per game to the position. Peoples-Jones has settled in as the No. 3 option in the Cleveland passing attack and has earned enough of a role to be considered as a boom/bust flex in fantasy heading into Week 6.

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught four of his seven targets for 50 yards in a 30-28 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5. Peoples-Jones finished second on the team in targets and third in receiving yardage in the loss. The veteran wideout has reached at least 50 receiving yards in three of his five contests while finishing with 10 or fewer yards in his other two outings. Peoples-Jones will look for his first touchdown in a Week 6 matchup against the New England Patriots.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones A Boom/Bust Flex In Week 5

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones has been up-and-down in 2022, posting two big games and two games where he essentially disappeared. He will look to make a difference in the box score in Week 5's home matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers have struggled against opposing receivers, allowing the 10th-most fantasy points per game to the position thus far in 2022. Peoples-Jones' two productive games this season have come when Amari Cooper struggled with a difficult cornerback matchup. Cooper draws a tough matchup against J.C. Jackson in Week 5, so Peoples-Jones could be in line for an increased role if Jackson can shut down his man in coverage. Treat Peoples-Jones as a boom/bust flex option in Week 5.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Catches Five Balls In Week 4

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught five of his nine targets for 71 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. Peoples-Jones wound up second on the team in receiving, just two yards behind team leader David Njoku. The veteran wideout has now had big games in Weeks 1 and 4 while posting duds in the other two games. Coincidentally, both of Peoples-Jones' big games came when teammate and No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper drew a tough cornerback matchup. Peoples-Jones will be a flex option in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones' Week 4 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones has been an afterthought in the offense of late, catching just one pass for 10 yards over his past two games. Peoples-Jones will look to get going in a road game against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. Atlanta has been generous to opposing wideouts in 2022, allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to the position through three weeks. That being said, Peoples-Jones does not have a safe enough role in the run-first Cleveland offense to trust in Week 4. He should not be in consideration for fantasy lineups this weekend.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Catches One Ball In Week 3

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught one of his three targets for 10 yards in a 29-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3. Peoples-Jones appeared to be Jacoby Brissett's favorite target in the passing game after Week 1, where he caught six passes for 60 yards. That has not been the case since as he was shut out in Week 2 and finished with just the one catch against the Steelers on Thursday night. Peoples-Jones is an explosive player but he will be tough to trust in fantasy moving forward. He should not be in fantasy lineups in Week 4's matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Week 3 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones turned in a quiet outing in a Week 2 loss to the New York Jets as he failed to catch his lone target in the contest. Peoples-Jones did appear to have a touchdown in the game but the play was overturned upon video review. The veteran wideout will look to bounce back in Week 3's Thursday game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers have been generous to opposing wide receivers thus far through two games, allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to the position. Despite the favorable matchup, Peoples-Jones should be treated as a boom/bust flex option for Week 3.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Held Without A Catch In Week 2

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones was unable to corral his lone target in a 31-30 loss to the New York Jets in Week 2. Peoples-Jones was quiet a week after leading the Browns in receiving in the season opener. He did appear to have a six-yard touchdown catch in the first half but the play was overturned after video review. Peoples-Jones will surely have more big games this season but he will be an inconsistent fantasy producer as the No. 2 option behind Amari Cooper. Peoples-Jones will be a boom/bust flex in Week 3's Thursday matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Week 2 Outlook For Fantasy Football

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones showed nice chemistry with new quarterback Jacoby Brissett in Week 1, finishing with six catches for 60 yards on a team-high 11 targets. Peoples-Jones will look to continue his success in a home matchup against the New York Jets in Week 2. The Jets struggled against the pass in Week 1, allowing three touchdowns to wide receivers in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens. That being said, the Browns will continue to lean on the running game in Week 2 after they handed out 33 running back carries in Week 1. The run-heavy approach will limit the ceilings of Cleveland's wide receivers in most weeks, leaving Peoples-Jones as a low-end flex option in fantasy for Week 2.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones Goes For 60 Yards In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught six of his 11 targets for 60 yards in a 26-24 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 1. Peoples-Jones turned in a big game in the season opener, leading the Browns in catches, targets, and yardage in the win. The third-year wideout really came up big on Cleveland's final drive of the game, coming down with a 13-yard grab on second-and-12. Peoples-Jones is likely to finish behind Amari Cooper in receiving most weeks but he should have some value as a flex option nonetheless. He will face the New York Jets at home in Week 2.

  • Donovan Peoples-Jones A Low-End Flex In Week 1

    Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones kicks off his 2022 season with a road matchup against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1. Peoples-Jones opens the season as the No. 2 receiver in Cleveland behind only Amari Cooper. The explosive third-year receiver had some big games in 2021 but he is not a recommended fantasy option for Week 1 against a Carolina defense that allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers last year. Look for the Browns to go run-heavy with Jacoby Brissett under center, which will also cap Peoples-Jones' upside in Week 1.
