According to Adam Beasley (via Twitter):
Gase: “I’ve got to do a better job of getting Jarvis the ball.”
It’s a great thought, but is anyone really buying it? The Dolphins have morhped into Jay Ajayi’s team, and there is no reason to think that’s about to change.
Miami has won their last three games, and they’ve done it with a run first approach. Just look at the pass attempts for Ryan Tannehill in the victories:
Landry has 49 catches on the season, though a lot of the damage was done early in the season. Over these three games he’s averaged just over 7 targets per game, as opposed to the 10+ he was routinely getting early on.
It’s impossible to think that anything is going to change, and while he should get more than the 6 he had in Week 9 (which led to just 3 receptions), 8-9 is a more reasonable expectation (and it wouldn’t be surprising if there are more days with limited opportunities). That may not be enough for a player who isn’t a big play threat (12.3 yards per catch) and could struggle to find the end zone (1 TD this season, only 10 TD In 40 career games).
While we wouldn’t want to ignore him completely, Landry has fallen into more of a WR4 type option depending on the matchup. In most weeks he’s not going to be a player you want to trust in your fantasy lineup, especially for those in leagues that only require two starting wide receivers.
