5. Jarvis Landry

First up on this list of promising performances is Jarvis Landry, who is entering his third year with the Cleveland Browns. While his stat line doesn’t look amazing, as he only netted five catches for 61 yards,  the main reason he makes this list is his efficiency.

Jarvis was, for some reason, only targeted six times throughout the course of the game. That means he caught 83 percent of the passes thrown his way, which is extremely good for a receiver. Albeit a very small sample size, that is refreshing to see considering how much his efficiency has dropped off since he became a Cleveland Brown.

From 2018 to 2019, Jarvis Landry saw a 5.7 percent increase in his catch percentage, which is the percentage of his targets he caught. In 2019, his catch percentage was only 60.1 percent, which is why a catch percentage of 83 percent is very nice to see. This is also against a Ravens secondary that is arguably the best in the league, as we saw last Sunday.

Jarvis Landry was also able to get 12.2 yards per reception this past Sunday, which is a solid number, especially compared to his career average. This is the type of efficiency the Browns need out of their star receiver, and hopefully, Odell will be able to catch up to his best friend soon.
