Are the Cleveland Browns contenders? Our contention is that they might be, but one area they'll need to improve is in their WR corps. And with their second-leading receiver Rashard Higgins going out Sunday with a knee injury, they'll need more not only from Jarvis Landry but a pair of rookies in Antonio Callaway and Derrick Willies.

Landry's blow-up spot is nigh. He's getting plenty of looks — his 57 through five games are more than all but Odell Beckham, Antonio Brown and Adam Thielen, and his seven red-zone targets trail only 10 other wideouts. Currently WR25 overall, Landry has the fourth-easiest remaining schedule at his position, bested only by Baltimore, Cincinnati and Carolina, and he's been dogged by 11 inaccurate passes, which is more than every receiver not named AB, OBJ and Corey Davis.

Landry's opponent Sunday, the Chargers, have gone from allowing the seventh-least fantasy points to wideouts last season to the seventh-most through five games in 2018. He'll see plenty of Casey Hayward, but he caught 13 passes for 78 yards against Hayward's Bolts last season.

Landry will get his, perhaps beginning Sunday. But what about Callaway? He continues to drop too many passes — among pass catchers who have commanded at least 25 targets, only John Brown, Ricky Seals-Jones, fellow rookie Courtland Sutton and Kelvin Benjamin have lower catch rates than Callaway's 44.8. But Cleveland keeps feeding the explosive rookie, who has commanded 22 of his 30 total looks in just more than 10 quarters with Baker Mayfield at the helm.

Willies isn't on the fantasy radar — yet — but that could soon change after his clutch overtime grab punctuated the undrafted rookie's first earnest opportunity to contribute on offense Sunday, when he finished with 3-61 receiving, including the 39-yarder in the extra period to position Cleveland for game-winning field goal. Keep an eye on Willies Sunday and, if he plays well, he could be in the sleeper category in Week 7, when the Browns visit Tampa Bay's 31st-ranked fantasy 'D' against receivers.
