Like with Donovan Peoples-Jones, Anthony Schwartz will likely get more action than he bargained for should there be another rash of injuries to the two former Pro-Bowlers ahead of him. Schwartz, unlike Peoples-Jones, will also be the third or fourth receiver on the field a lot of the time. With his game-breaking speed and his near-limitless potential, Schwartz may just become the over-the-top receiver option Baker Mayfield has been missing.
Also, unlike Peoples-Jones, Schwartz will get far more scripted action due to his skillset. He’s probably the fastest player on the team and that alone will get him in on some sets that he normally wouldn’t be included on.
With guys like Rashard Higgins and Peoples-Jones also vying for time, should Schwartz start putting up impressive numbers, he may be given a much bigger role and could start to possibly take away opportunities from them.
Granted, the real action will/would come if and when Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. suffer injuries. While so many people try to make the offense out as this juggernaut waiting to be unleashed, personally, it’s far more likely that the Browns test their receiver depth fairly early into the season.
