Is Jarvis Landry playing Thursday night? Fantasy injury updates for Bengals-Browns

Jarvis Landry has been remarkably consistent over the past several years. He doesn’t catch a lot of TDs, but the Browns receiver has always been a reliable PPR threat. He has recorded at least 81 catches in each of his six seasons, and he looked good last week, grabbing five passes for 61 yards. However, there is some question about whether he’ll play ahead of a Thursday Night Football clash with the Bengals. Landry is dealing with a troublesome hip injury and is officially questionable for the game. It’s difficult to know whether he will be active or not, so fantasy football owners and DFS players will have to check up on his active/inactive status before making any start ’em, sit ’em decisions involving Landry. 

We’ll have updates below ahead of the Browns-Bengals game and right up until the official inactive report is released at around 6:50 p.m. ET on Thursday night. For more fantasy news, follow us on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.

WEEK 2 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end |  D/ST | Kicker

Is Jarvis Landry playing Thursday night?

Landry was listed as a non-participant in Tuesday’s practice, according to the Browns’ official website, before logging a limited session on Wednesday. That’s good news that Landry’s status appears to be trending in the right direction, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that he’ll play.

Because the Browns are playing on a short week early in the season, they could choose to sit Landry and ensure that he will be healthy come Week 3. That would give him a full week of rest to help his troublesome hip so it won’t be a problem down the line. Essentially, if there was a time for Cleveland to sit Landry for a game to help that injury heal, this would be it.

MORE TNF: DK Showdown lineup

Conversely, one could argue that Landry could play Thursday night since he will have a full 10 days between games after that. It’s unclear which option the Browns and Landry would choose because it’s unclear the exact extent of Landry’s injury.

WEEK 2 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

If Landry does suit up against the Bengals, he can be trusted as a high-end WR3 in a solid matchup. In PPR formats, he could move into WR2 range because he should be in line to catch a lot of passes, especially if the Bengals focus on slowing down Odell Beckham Jr. and the Browns’ running game.

If Landry misses the game, Beckham and the top two RBs for the Browns, Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, would get a boost as they would shoulder a lot of the offensive workload. At receiver, Rashard Higgins would probably be the next man up along with KhaDarel Hodge. Both would be too risky to play in yearlong fantasy leagues, but either (preferably Higgins) could be a good flier to take on in single-game DFS tournaments.

It’s also possible that Kevin Stefanski could give his tight ends more action if Landry is out. The Browns have several questionable offensive linemen, so they may need some in-line blockers to help out. That could open up some more receiving opportunities for Austin Hooper, who is already in line for an increased workload with David Njoku (knee) on IR, and fourth-round rookie Harrison Bryant. 

We’ll keep you posted on Landry’s status moving forward. If he can’t play, fantasy owners should still have plenty of options available to fill in for him considering that it is so early in the week and there are several good matchups to take advantage of this week.

“Who Is Nielsen” – Jorge Masvidal Not Impressed With the World’s Most Marketable Athletes Rankings

"Who Is Nielsen" - Jorge Masvidal Not Impressed With the World’s Most Marketable Athletes Rankings

Combat sport athletes have made their mark on SportPro’s list of the World’s 50 Most Marketable Athletes. While the list features several big names from the world of boxing and MMA, their order is a bit surprising, even for UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal.

Powered by Nielsen, the list features soccer icon Lionel Messi on the top. The highest-ranked combat athlete on the list is UFC lightweight kingpin Khabib Nurmagomedov. Despite not fighting in the year 2020, the Russian has been in news a lot.

He was booked to fight Tony Ferguson in April, but the fight fell through due to the pandemic. The death of his father in the month of July also came as a shock for all his fans.

The only other MMA figure on the list is Jorge Masvidal, who ranked in at 24. The UFC welterweight took the MMA world by storm with his three back-to-back victories last year. Amidst a rift with the UFC over a pay dispute, Masvidal then stepped in at a short notice to face UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman at UFC 251.

While he didn’t win the fight, the narrative of him stepping in on short notice and going five rounds with a fully prepared champ gained him a lot of praise. Moreover, after Masvidal came to know that only two MMA athletes have cracked into the list, ‘Gamebred’ wasn’t impressed with the same.

22-year-old Ryan Garcia acquires the top-spot among boxers on the list

The work put in by Ryan Garcia on his social media posts have finally paid off. Coming in at No. 12, WBC Silver lightweight champ is the highest-ranked boxer on the list. Garcia’s Instagram videos where he shows-off his insanely fast hands and reflex skills have attracted millions of followers from around the globe.

The other two boxers who complete the list are heavyweight juggernauts Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. The two are ranked side-by-side at 31 and 32.

Fury stepped in the ring earlier this year when he defeated Deontay Wilder in the seventh round of their rematch. Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua last fought and defeated Andy Ruiz Jr. last year in Abu Dhabi. The two have also signed a contract to fight each other if they get past their respective mandatory challengers.

The ranking of the athlete’s marketability was made after assigning them a score. Called the Influencer Selection and Measurement Framework, the methodology draws on vast amounts of social media data to generate an Athlete Influencer Score comprising four key data points: relevance, reach, return, and resonance.

BREAKING: History Created at French Open 2020 After Six Hour Marathon

Corentin Moutet and Lorenzo Giustino faced each other in Round 1 of the French Open 2020. While many expected it to be an ordinary match, it turned out to be a historic game.

The match lasted for 6 hours and 5 minutes, making it the second-longest match in the history of Roland Garros. Additionally, it was the fourth-longest match in the history of Grand Slams.

In a match that saw a total of 459 points won by both the players collectively, Guistino defeated the Frenchman 0-6, 7-6, 7-6, 2-6, and 18-16.  It was also the first Grand Slam win for the Italian player Guistino.

Record Fifth-set scoreline makes French Open history

The fifth set scoreline was 18-16, a record for French Open’s red clay. It was almost as if nobody will give up at any point. Surprisingly, Giustino won only 34 games as compared to Moutet’s 40 but still ended on the winning side.

Fabrice Santoro and Arnaud Clement held the earlier record, with the fifth set scoreline being 16-14. The match between the two lasted for 6 hours and 33 minutes, the longest match so far in the French Open’s history which Santoro won 6-4, 6-3, 6-7, 3-6, and 16-14.

Who could have possibly thought that after losing the first set 0-6, the Italian player would make such an impossible-looking comeback! In the end, Giustino not only turned the tables but also registered his name in history. Playing 6 hours is not a joke, requiring a lot of sweat and determination.

Lorenzo Giustino will next face the new sensation, Diego Schwartzman, who recently defeated World No.2 Rafael Nadal on clay. The Argentine even reached the finals of the Italian Open 2020 but lost to World No.1 Novak Djokovic.
