Peoples-Jones came into this season with a career average of 16.0 yards per reception.
Peoples-Jones Best Bet
Peoples-Jones hasn’t had a game in which he caught more than three passes since Week 15 of last season vs. the Ravens (four targets, four receptions). And since that game, Peoples-Jones has been targeted a combined 14 times and caught just five of them, a catch percentage of 36%.
And it’s not as if he hasn’t had his chances. He’s been on the field for at least 85% of the Browns’ offensive snaps over the last four games, dating back to last season.
The good news for Cleveland fans is that Peoples-Jones has enjoyed playing the Steelers. In five career games vs. Pittsburgh, Peoples-Jones has caught only seven passes but is still averaging a whopping 19.9 yards per reception.
But while he clearly has big-play capability for Cleveland, I’m taking a wait-and-see approach with Peoples-Jones this season. In other words, let him show us something before we back him on any props.
I’ll take the under on receiving yards for Peoples-Jones, with the full understanding that it could blow up in my face in one long pass play.
Donovan Peoples-Jones Best Bet: Under on 30.5 Receiving Yards (-115 at DraftKings)
