Jarvis Landry caught five passes for 84 yards in the Dolphins' third preseason game Saturday night.
Landry was targeted a team-high six times among the Dolphins' first-teamers. His big gain was a 46-yard pickup over the middle where Landry chewed up plenty of yards-after-catch. Through three preseason games, Landry has caught 11-of-13 targets for 115 yards and one touchdown. He also saw plenty of looks in the red zone. Landry is shaping up as a solid WR3 with WR2 upside in PPR. Aug 29 - 9:09 PM

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker expects Jarvis Landry to "do a lot of damage in the red zone" this season.

Walker "wouldn't be surprised" if Landry doubles his TD total (5) from last season and becomes a double-digit touchdown scorer. It's been clear since last season that Landry is Ryan Tannehill's favorite target, and if Miami's second preseason game was any indication, Landry is going to be a preferred option near the goal line. On back-to-back third- and fourth-and-goal plays, Tannehill threw to Landry. He'll likely threaten 90 catches and eight scores.

The Miami Herald refers to second-year WR Jarvis Landry as "clearly quarterback Ryan Tannehill's go-to receiver."

Reporter Armando Salguero passes along "questions whether (Landry) might eclipse the team record of 90 catches in one season." Indeed, Landry established a 105-reception pace over the final nine games of his rookie year, after opening the season as a part-time wide receiver. Landry will play full time as a sophomore and should be a target vacuum in OC Bill Lazor's offense.

Jarvis Landry is expected to keep the Dolphins' primary punt and kickoff returner jobs.

Landry is going to log heavy minutes this season as a near-100-percent player on offense and multiple-phase special teamer. Landry finished 2014 fourth in the NFL in kick return average and 14th on punt returns. Landry will offer a ton of appeal in leagues that award points for both catches and return yards.

Coach Joe Philbin confirmed Jarvis Landry's "home base is still inside" at slot receiver.

There's been talk Landry may play outside more in year two. That may be the case, but Landry's going to be in the slot the vast majority of the time. Inside, he'll be able to gobble up targets between the hashes and have 100-catch upside. By most accounts, Landry has also looked faster this summer. In Wednesday's training camp practice, he roasted FS Louis Delmas for a 65-yard score.

Jarvis Landry is considered the "front-runner" to keep the Dolphins' punt return job in 2015.

Landry will assume every-down duties at receiver, but he remains the Fins' best option on kick and punt returns, as well. Landry ranked fourth in the NFL in kickoff return average as a rookie. Landry's low aDOT (Average Depth of Target) in some ways caps his fantasy ceiling, but he set a 105-catch pace over the final nine weeks of 2014 and has added value in return-yardage leagues.
Jul 31 - 1:43 AM

Jarvis Landry is working out at Pete Bommarito Performance Systems in Davie (FL) in an effort to improve his straight-line speed.

Landry ran a brutal 4.77 forty at the 2014 Scouting Combine, and 4.61 at the LSU Pro Day. He wants to show the coaching staff he can be more than a rugged slot receiver. "Absolutely," Landry replied when asked if his speed has improved. "I can't wait to show it." Landry remains ticketed for the slot on the Dolphins, with Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker, and Greg Jennings on the outside.
Jul 9 - 11:17 PM

The Miami Herald expects Jarvis Landry to serve as Ryan Tannehill's "go-to guy, particularly in the early part of the season."

Landry isn't a favorite in the fantasy community due to athletic limitations and low yards per catch, but he's likely to be a 2015 target monster, especially after DeVante Parker's setback with his foot. A high-volume slot receiver, Landry averaged nine targets per game in the second half of last season. He's less desirable in standard leagues, but could push for WR2 value in PPR this year.
Jun 8 - 11:37 PM

According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are "hoping to leave defenses scrambling and confused by moving receivers to different positions."

It's why Jarvis Landry has been getting the occasional snap on the outside in OTAs. Seeking mismatches is never a bad idea, but Landry would simply be overmatched outside. Kenny Stills' speed makes him a threat both inside and out, while DeVante Parker's size can help him overwhelm smaller corners in the slot. That's where the Dolphins will get their mismatches, not from Landry manning the boundary.
Jun 4 - 5:59 PM

The Dolphins "aren’t opposed to the idea" of playing Jarvis Landry on the outside.

With Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker not acclimated to OC Bill Lazor’s scheme, the Dolphins have been getting Landry involved in two-wide sets. Landry could see more time in base packages this year, but hasn't proven he can win outside and averaged just nine yards per catch as a rookie. Even if limited to the slot, Landry is a good bet to top the 105 targets he saw in 2014.
Jun 3 - 6:14 PM

Jarvis Landry was operating as the Dolphins slot receiver at Tuesday's OTAs.

Any whispers that Landry will be moving outside should be squashed. He's an ideal fit in the slot while new additions Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker fit outside. Veteran Greg Jennings projects as a backup at all three spots and Jordan Cameron will also be working between the hashes. Landry's role as a high-volume underneath slot man is intact, but there are a lot of mouths for Ryan Tannehill to feed here.
May 26 - 12:14 PM

The Sun-Sentinel considers Jarvis Landry the Dolphin most likely to have a breakthrough season in 2015.

Landry was extremely impressive as a rookie slot man, leading the team with 84 catches and emerging as Ryan Tannehill's go-to receiver. Now Mike Wallace, Charles Clay and Brian Hartline are all gone, opening up a ton of opportunity. The Dolphins will add outside receiver help in the form of a veteran free agent and/or a draft pick, but Landry is locked into volume. A 100-catch season is within reach.
Apr 14 - 10:26 AM

Jarvis Landry secured 5-of-9 targets for 55 yards in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

A second-round draft gem selected by first-year GM Dennis Hickey, Landry finished a promising first NFL campaign with 89 catches for 813 yards and five touchdowns. He also operated as the Fins' kickoff and punt returner and was solid in both roles. Landry projects as Miami's No. 2 receiver of the future and has the look of a player who could rack up 90-plus receptions on an annual basis. The pre-draft comparisons to Hines Ward were on point. We expect Landry's role to further increase as a sophomore. Despite limited speed and a lack of a vertical game, Landry will be an every-week WR3 in 2015 PPR leagues.

Jarvis Landry managed 31 yards on eight receptions in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

He couldn't get anything going after the catch on a day where Landry piled up nine targets. In a terrible game for Landry, he lost a fourth-quarter fumble at the Dolphins' own five-yard line with the score tied 28-28. Matt Asiata scored a TD plays later that almost won the game for the Vikings. Expect Landry to rebound in a Week 17 matchup with the Jets' leaky secondary.

Jarvis Landry caught 8-of-11 targets for 99 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Patriots.

Landry drew a lot of Darrelle Revis, but it wasn't exclusive as the Pats mixed up their coverages. Four of Landry's grabs also came deep into garbage time. Either way, the catches matched Landry's season high, while the yards represent a new personal best. Landry will be a high-floor WR3 against the Vikings in the fantasy finals.
