Wide Receiver (6)
Odell Beckham, Jr.
At wide receiver, we stick with six players. Considering Kevin Stefanski likes to use two wide receiver sets more often than not, it might seem as if this is deep but KhaDarel Hodge makes this team just as much for his special teams play as he does his ability as a receiver (and the Browns started to move toward more three wideout sets as the season went on).
The No. 1 and No. 2 spots are locked up with Odell Beckham, Jr. and Jarvis Landry. OBJ is coming off a torn ACL and has a lot to prove and Landry was banged up a lot in 2020 and is also hoping to put up more yardage in the passing game.
After that, things get a little cloudy. Rashard Higgins is a fan favorite and has a great rapport with Baker Mayfield. Having said that, the staff has seemed reluctant to play him and while he looks like the No. 3 guy right now, keep your eyes on Donovan Peoples-Jones.
A product of Michigan, Peoples-Jones averaged more than 20 yards per catch and there’s no denying that his ability to get deep helps this offense.
Speaking of getting deep, that’s what Anthony Schwartz does best. Drafted in the third round out of Auburn, Schwartz is a burner who might not be refined enough to be in the WR3 conversation, but he’s going to have more than his share of packages this season.
