On Tuesday, Bleacher Report Gridiron tweeted out their top five wide receiver duos in the NFL. And as with any list, there was some disagreement -- particularly by those who felt snubbed.
Jarvis Landry, one of the snubs from the list, had a reaction to the list about it as well. All Landry could do was laugh when he saw that he and Odell Beckham Jr. were not in consideration for top five honors.
Although Landry is upset, his case doesn’t have much merit to it. In 2020, Landry had 840 yards receiving yards, his lowest since his rookie season. He also caught a career-low three touchdowns. His partner-in-crime Odell Beckham Jr. missed 9 games after tearing his ACL. Prior to that he had racked up 319 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
In terms of talent, Landry and Beckham Jr. have a reason to be upset for being left off a top five list. However, based on production alone, there are better duos in the NFL.
While Beckham goes through rehab, Landry is the focal point of the Cleveland Browns passing game. With Landry on the outside, the Browns were able to find a rhythm offensively and were close to knocking off the Kansas Cirty Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Game.
Despite the Browns expected to take a slight step back from 2020, Landry and a healthy Beckham Jr. will certainly have their opportunity to show why they are amongst the elite duos in the league.
