2021 Fantasy Outlook
Peoples-Jones was a healthy scratch early in the 2020 season but was forced into a larger role after Odell Beckham sustained a season-ending knee injury Week 7. He brought an explosive element to the Browns offense and averaged 21.7 yards per catch. The vertical element is something that was missing after Beckham's injury until Peoples-Jones leap-frogged KhaDarel Hodge on the team's depth chart. With a healthy Beckham back in the mix, Peoples-Jones likely drops to the fourth on the depth chart and will compete for slotting with Hodge, Rashard Higgins, and rookie third-round draft pick Anthony Schwartz.

Peoples-Jones caught two of five targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Ravens.
ANALYSIS
Peoples-Jones returned to active duty after missing one week due to a groin injury, an on-going issue that's forced him to miss three of the last six games. He's the successor to Odell Beckham as the Browns' top deep threat, but the passing game is hindered by quarterback Baker Mayfield, who's dealing with multiple injuries and has completed 50.6 percent of his passes over the last three weeks. The Browns head into a bye Week 13, which could be an opportunity for Mayfield to get healthier and head coach Kevin Stefanski to fix the team's passing attack.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Browns took Peoples-Jones in the sixth round of this April's NFL Draft, 187th overall. As a rookie, he could be an immediate contributor on special teams, but down the road, the 6-2, 212-pounder has the size and athleticism to emerge as an outside target who can go up and get the ball. At the combine, Peoples-Jones recorded a 4.48 40, as well as an excellent mark (44.5 inches) in the vertical leap category. Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry remain the Brown' clear-cut top two wide receivers, but beyond that duo, the pecking order is not set in stone, with Rashard Higgins currently penciled in as the team's WR3. As a result, Peoples-Jones does have an opportunity to climb up Cleveland's depth chart as the 2020 season rolls along.
