Browns | Josh Gordon's reps limited

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 15:00:26 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had his reps limited in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts. Head coach Mike Pettine said Sunday, Dec. 7, that the staff felt he was getting too many reps, so they took him out on third downs.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was a fantasy killer, posting just two receptions and 15 yards in the loss. He was targeted seven times. With Brian Hoyer struggling, even a talented player like Gordon isn't worth using in FantasyScore heading into Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Browns | Josh Gordon still learning offense

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 15:35:21 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has 195 receiving yards in his two games this year, but his timing has been off with QB Brian Hoyer, resulting in three interceptions on passes thrown his way despite a team-high 29 targets in the last two weeks. Gordon has said that it is taking time to understand offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's system and terminology. "You have to master your offense that we're running here," Gordon said. "When you do that, you think a lot less and you move a lot faster. That's really the point I'm trying to get to. I'd like for it to be second nature, for me not to even think about it. I can hear half the play in the huddle and know what to do. But it's not like that right now."

Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($7,600) is getting the targets, and that's all that really matters for fantasy football. On paper, the Indianapolis Colts have been impressive holding down receivers this year, but that shouldn't stop you from playing Gordon at FantasyScore, especially if Vontae Davis is unable to play.

Browns | Josh Gordon strong in debut

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 13:59:23 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon posted eight receptions for 120 yards in his regular season debut in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted a game-high 16 times in the win.

Fantasy Tip: There were some signs of the layoff, including some route running mistakes and a play in the back of the end zone where he allowed an interception where he appeared to give up on the route. However, he also didn't have much rust, and he appears to be a must-play in FantasyScore going forward, especially when the matchup is favorable.

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 08:17:01 -0800

Browns | Josh Gordon sits out of practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 15:03:37 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($6,900, 13.8%) will still make his long-awaited season debut this weekend. He has a tasty matchup facing the Atlanta Falcons, who are one of five defenses to give up 1,900 or more yards to opposing wide receivers.

Browns | Josh Gordon needs time to acclimate?

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:00:24 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was amped up and excited to take part in his first practice with the team this year Wednesday, Nov. 19, but QB Brian Hoyer cautioned that Gordon may need some time to acclimate to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's new offense. "It's not so much the physical aspect as knowing the plays, the heat of the battle," said Hoyer. "We do a lot of no-huddle stuff. Obviously, we're working with him on that." Hoyer mentioned that last year's offense was more set on getting the ball downfield, and he said he's never been one to force the ball to one specific player.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect too much from Gordon ($6,900) in his first game back, although the matchup against the Atlanta Falcons is very tempting. It could be a boom or bust day for Cleveland's most talented offensive weapon.
