1. DPJ inserting himself into Cleveland Browns offense
For the better part of three weeks, fans of the Browns had been hearing about Donovan Peoples-Jones’ performance at camp.
The second-year wideout seemed to be taking a huge step in year two, after playing well, but falling short of breaking out as a rookie a season ago.
He had three receptions for 26 yards in the offense’s two series. He and Case Keenum displayed some nice chemistry, particularly hitting on a timing route for the first completion of the game.
We really only saw DPJ stretch the field once–on an incomplete pass, but none-the-less, the deep ball was there.
Perhaps most importantly, DPJ inserted himself into the action, early. If he’s been so good at practice, then he should be drawing targets, of which he had five total.
Peoples-Jones entered the game as the No. 1 wideout with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry watching the game in street clothes on the sideline.
