I just don't get the hate on Landry. We traded for him after we went 0-16 and after a year like that we had to overpay to keep him. At the time he was paid as the 6th highest WR in the league, while he is not a true # 1, he is a good lower end #1 and a great #2. He has a great locker room guy and I think once the offense is clocking his numbers will go up. With Higgins and Callaway back, I think it will open up even more space for him over the middle. He also is only 26 years old.

If extrapolated across the entire season:

Jarvis:

132 tgts, 72 rec, 1312 yards

OBJ:

148 tgts, 84 rec, 1232 yards

I don't think that's bad at all. As Baker improves and finds his rhythm like he's appearing to do, the TDs will come. Not to mention the fact that our schedule will lighten up soon - I think they're both easily going to be 1000+ yard receivers.

You said you don’t understand the “hate” but then you include this statement in your post

People don’t hate Jarvis some just think he’s overrated by browns fans. This statement is the exact thing people disagree with.

I appreciate your irrational confidence here in something that, based on his yardage through 4 games, will probably happen (1,100 yards) more times than not.

Landry career receiving yards per game: 64.7
Remaining yards per game to get to 1100: 64.3

Then take the bet? Instead of calling my thoughts irrational like a child

The term "irrational confidence" is not meant to be demeaning.

I just appreciated the bet looking at historical trends. It seems like a coin flip.

If I want to engage in $100 coin flips, I'll scratch that itch during my next trip to Vegas.

Juice is my favorite Browns player in a long time. He openly embraced being traded to a team that won 1 fucking game in two years, recruited players left and right and has helped change this culture. I also have a man crush on him big time. No way would the OBJ trade have gone down the way it did without him here... I will bet anyone he gets 1,000 yards if him and Baker are healthy all season...

Well I certainly don’t view it as irrational and I don’t think looking at historical trends is the best way to look at it

Last season there were 13 1100 yard receivers and 3 TEs to do it.

Teams with multiple were:
Steelers
Chiefs
Rams

Those teams ranked 2nd, 3rd, and 5th in passing yards in the NFL.

In 2017 no team accomplished it and only 9 receivers total made it over the 1,100 yard mark

It’s not a small accomplishment and rather rare to have 2

Which brings me to my main point, the majority of Jarvis’ historical averages have come as the primary receiving option. I think as a #2 (over a larger sample size than 4 games) that average will drop. Mayfield has a lot of options and he likes to spread the ball around. Jarvis won’t get the volume he had over his career where he posted those averages. theres a lot of counters to that about better QB, different offense, etc but I’d be surprised if you didn’t agree that expecting 9 targets per game (his career average) over the last 12 games probably won’t happen

I view it as much less likely than a coin flip, but Vegas winnings/losings don’t go to RCF :)

Out of concussion protocol, back to practice, looks like he will playing Monday.

So we have Juice back, Calloway back and maybe Higgins.

We might have our full compliment of WR's for the first time, this could be fun.
